Melissa Dunlop trained with Redken and Pureology before opening her own salon—Mel's Hair Zone. As a seasoned colorist, she transforms dark browns into platinum blondes and vice-versa, and can also paint tresses with peekaboo highlights and bold Chromashine colors, such as hot fuchsia and rich blue. An array of products by American Crew and Morrocanoil help her sculpt and nourish strands, ensuring each cut is as healthy as it is chic.
La Lash and Beauty Bar?s professionals focus on revamping visages using mink eyelash extensions and makeup applications. The salon staffs a doctor to help men and women free their faces from fine lines with Botox injections and dermal fillers.
The skilled tress technicians at Chatters Salon infuse newfound vitality into insipid locks with an array of salon treatments, including a single-process salon colouring using Redken colour. A cup of precolouring coffee or tea keeps pigment-awaiting patrons hydrated in the waiting area as head gardens excitedly prepare to live out their chameleonic dreams. To begin the treatment, a talented shade switcher modifies the colour composition of hair with artful ease. Once hair has been cloaked in rich colour, a shampoo and conditioning treatment expunges lingering tint from strands while an accompanying scalp massage twists stressed-out thought bubbles into pleasing balloon animals. For a coif-pampering finale, a blow-dry whisks away residual moisture, leaving newly toned strands shiny and swinging. As an added bonus, salon-goers receive a full-size salon product with their colouring service.
Black Pearl Beauty Loft's talented stylists treat craniums to luxurious scalp massages and haircuts, special-occasion updos, and hair extensions.

Body-length mirrors reflect a space with black leather furnishings and walls featuring black-and-white vine motifs, and technicians add splashes of color to manes and enhance eyelids with individual lash applications.
