Andropolis Hair Salon & Color Spa's strand-slayers coax slumping hair into more attractive postures with an assortment of techniques and products. With a cut and style (a $35 value), mane manipulators Kendall Gill or Sarah Jordan will bring each hair down to size and weave locks into a beautiful basket, perfect for toting the multitudinous love notes from amorous suitors. A protein treatment (a $25 value) infuses strands with a fuller body and the necessary strength to withstand daily abuse from vengeful toxins.
Paige Spruill knows a thing or two about using scissors. She knows how to cut away overgrown locks, add face-framing layers, and make a paper snowflake. All of these skills come in handy at Davidson-Taylor Salon & Day Spa when she creates new styles for her clients. In addition to shearing tresses, she adds highlights and all-over color for more drama.
Natural light pours through Aubrey’s sheer curtains, evoking an oceanic ripple across the salon’s turquoise walls. Amid these modern accents, skilled stylists cultivate face-flattering clipper cuts and transform tresses with elegant color highlights. Clients can also opt for an invigorating deep-conditioning treatment at the tiled shampoo bar.
Professional hair stylist Lorrie Caballero cuts female follicles (a $27–$37 value depending on hair length), focusing on creating styles suited to individual faces and hair types. Opt for straightening rather than shortening with Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy by Coppola, which infuses natural keratin deep into cuticles and can eliminate up to 95% of frizz and curls. The treatment is equally effective on color-treated and chemically processed hair and contains aldehyde instead of the formaldehyde found in many straightening products, making it safer for both the stylist and customer. Part firefighter, part scuba-geared treasure hunter, Lorrie Caballero can tame flaming flare-ups of frizz or use a new 'do to unearth solid gold glances from a sea of attractive strangers.

Enhance strands with natural all-over color ($65), highlights ($75+).

At The Spotted Leopard Salon, stylist Tiffany tends to locks with Redken and Kenra products. She fashions new looks based on a combination of knowledge of current trends and client input. Tiffany’s precise scissors erase split ends and add texture to strands before partial highlights lend dimension or full color alters the hair’s overall hue and Myers-Briggs personality type. The comfortable salon greets guests with a boutique area stocked with jewelry and clothes.
