Men, women, and children all spend some time in the salon chair that Kalli helms at La Ti Da Salon. The stylist trims bangs, shaves necklines, and cuts layers into hair. She also bestows strands with new color that correlates to seasons or purses.
The expert stylists at California Cuts snip away unsightly split ends with a swift movement of the scissors, fashioning hair into styles. They can customize haircuts to flatter facial features, and add coloring services to match skin tones.
A licensed cosmetologist and second-degree black belt, owner Suprena Clark divides her time between styling hair and leading self-defense classes inside Fusion Studios' full-size mixed-martial-arts ring. While her staff of cosmetologists groom heads and tattoo artists ornament bodies, Suprena often leads Zumba and martial-arts classes inside the ring, which takes up about half the studio's space. When she isn't teaching others how to perform ax kicks, Suprena spends her time behind a styling chair, chopping off dead ends and punching up hairdos with splashes of color.
