As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
If you're in the market for a new look, look no further than Marijosie Unisex Salon. The salon's stylists and aestheticians team up to complement their clients' natural beauty with a full range of haircuts, manicures, and waxing services. The stylists are particularly adept at matching the right style to each client's face, regardless of whether that client has been blessed with curls, straight locks, or a head infested with snakes. The aestheticians turn their attention to the body itself, beautifying skin with makeup applications, eyelash treatments, and bikini waxes.
The name may be deceptive, but Visions Hair Studio goes beyond the follicle when it comes to beauty. The studio also offers mani-pedis that trim and shape nails and remove cuticle overgrowth. The service may also top nails with sturdy gel polish that lasts longer than regular polishes.
Danuta Sudol refreshes visages at her Evolution European Beauty Salon. She breathes new life into hair with trendy cuts and highlights. On the skincare front, chemical peels wipe away dirt, acne, and excess oil so faces are properly prepped for makeup applications or face paintings.
Although the wedding-day styles at Ciro’s Hair Pavilion have garnered WeddingWire’s Bride’s Choice Awards in 2010, 2011, and 2012, the stylists behind them reach beyond the altar with a variety of everyday beauty services. Experts of texture, the stylists spruce up curls with DevaCurl products and uncoil unwanted twists with Keratin Complex by Coppola. Other professional hair products, such as Onesta and Wella, spritz clients through highlights, perms, and styles. Botanical ingredients in NYX Cosmetics makeup deliver a flawless special-occasion look while leaving out the petrolatum, parabens, and artificial colors found in other makeup brands and discount water balloons.
Many twins grow up sharing similarities: they might listen to the same music, enjoy the same foods, or blink at exactly the same time. Moxie Lux owners Jamie and Jenn share a love for cutting and styling hair. In high school, they trained together under the Paul Mitchell curriculum, and then launched their careers immediately after graduation?testing their skills in the salons of Los Angeles and New York. Today, Jenn is a Wella-certified colorist, and Jamie is a recognized Motives makeup foundation specialist. Both are certified in La Bella hair and eyelash extensions, and together, they lead Moxie Lux's team of experienced stylists and colorists.
Surrounded by chandeliers, a stone-front fireplace, and colorful walls, stylists trim hair with custom cuts that transform heads into sassy sculptures with Marylin Monroe?style curls or Statue of Liberty?style crowns. For many of these services, they use the salon's house brand of moisturizing and conditioning haircare products. And yet Moxie Salon and Spa's aestheticians don't limit their services to hair: they also perform custom makeup applications using Motives products, luxurious mani-pedis, and waxing treatments for a variety of areas.
