The stylists at Imani's Too Hair & More specialize in African American hair, treating natural hair to silk presses or producing lasting results with chemical relaxers. Sew-in weave and coloring are also house specialties, along with flattering updos for women of all ages. Clients can round out their looks with eyebrow and eyelash treatments.
Award-winning cosmetologist and beautician Camilla Terrell, the owner of eN’vision, works with a staff of master stylists to beautify her clients.

Some stylists specialize in particular services, such as Redken hair coloring or GKhair keratin treatments.
Ken “Hollywood” Berry earned his nickname without working on a single film. Instead, the head barber at The Natural MoJo Hair Spa got his moniker by trimming celebrities’ hair. As the former personal barber and basketball shaver for the LA Lakers, he has styled Kobe Bryant and other NBA stars; he’s even cut the hair of hip-hop legend Nas. At his barbershop and salon, which specializes in natural styles for African-American hair, Berry and his team work with both men and women. For the latter, they can create locs, bantu knots, braids, and curls.
Braids swirled into an oversize bun. Sleek, straight hair spilling across the shoulders. Soft, flowing curls spiraling down the back. These are a few of the looks that the stylist at Strickly Fab has mastered. But she doesn't just style hair—she also cuts, conditions, and colors it.
Nail artisans at Art's Nails and Orchid Nails lavish attention on fingers and toes by filing and polishing their keratinous ornaments in indulgent mani-pedis. In the regular mani-pedi, deft fingers buff nail surfaces until they gleam; the deluxe digit makeover adds a sea-salt scrub that pampers skin like the warm caress of a friendly anemone, as well as a paraffin dunking that grants skin silky smoothness and a callus treatment that transforms hardened soles into attractive foot pillows. While reclining in the comfort of the salon's cozy pedicure chairs, relaxed guests can rest assured that their fingers and toes will be kept dexterous enough to thumb wrestle a stenographer. For an additional $15, customers may upgrade to gel nails with either option.
Though it has all the standard spa treatments—facials, body wraps, massages—The Spa at Wellness Works extends its attention beyond the reach of a typical day spa. With personal-training sessions and weight-loss services, the self-improvement haven welcomes clients to a complete wellness center dedicated to improving appearances, physical health, and mental telepathy. The center also hosts a variety of fitness and education events, including boot-camp sessions, cooking classes, and wellness seminars, to teach participants skills that they can apply to their daily lives.
