Fringe Hair Studio’s expert stylists prettify patrons with TIGI facepaints and the sweet smells and smoothing effects of Moroccanoil products. First, a highly trained stylist shampoos thoughtful tresses to prepare them for the profundities of deep conditioning. Then, rich Moroccanoil seeps into hair follicles to combat the twin terrors of summer dryness and frizz. After the deep conditioning, stylists invade client mindspace to design a customized cut. After the haircut, blow-drying specialists de-damp and style hair, downsizing any shrinky dink stowaways in the process. The TIGI makeup session perfects faces with a fresh blanket of professional-grade TIGI makeup. Expert aestheticians highlight patrons’ most prized features with a supermodel rainbow's worth of colors and demonstrate secret application techniques guarded since the sixth century by a secret society of pretty people.
Women can easily maintain both the shape and shade of their mane, starting with a haircut ($40–$50), followed by a single-process color ($50–$60), full highlight ($85–$90), or partial highlight ($70–$80) using products such as L'Oreal Professional. Men can also transform their mop tops, with haircuts ranging from $30 to $35. For a more holistic head renovation, pair a follicle treatment with a luxurious facial, such as the 85-minute Rhonda Allison facial, during which one of Style 7's trained pore purgers will methodically lure your best face out of hiding ($75). If you're in a hurry, choose to accelerate the action with a 30-minute express facial, the epidermal equivalent to shouting, “olly olly oxen free” ($45).
