With the motto “Be your own kind of beautiful,” the stylists at this L'anza focus salon help bring out clients’ natural allure. They pull from L'anza’s line of botanical-based products to cleanse and condition strands before accentuating features with a flattering cut or vibrant new hue. In addition to hair services, the staff reveals brighter complexions with facials and makeup applications.
Kathy McKenna's permanent-makeup application services represent just one snippet of the service list at Andrea's Organic Hair Studio & Day Spa. As its name indicates, stylists at the ecoconscious salon wield only certified organic haircare products. Organic products also include all-natural nail polish and Éminence organic skincare for facials. The green-certified salon even repurposes magazine pages as foils for ecofriendly hair coloring. Within this green oasis, Kathy helps clients shorten their morning routines by applying permanent makeup, including permanent eyeliner to accent eyes and permanent lip color to revive mouths' youthful hues.
At Color Trendz Salon, stylists transform ordinary strands into chic, face-framing styles with help from Moroccanoil, Kenra, and Matrix products. Beneath the glow of gold chandeliers hanging overhead, the team snips, highlights, and colors locks, allowing clients to admire their new coifs in plenty of floor-length mirrors. Meanwhile, private spa rooms ward off the cacophonous noises of blow dryers, chatter, and screaming split ends, and instead, they surround customers with soft candlelight in preparation for a facial or wax. Nail technicians do their part to pamper clients as well, thanks to massage chairs and manicures and pedicures that make use of OPI and Essie polishes.
Prior to opening Hello, Gorgeous! Salon with her daughter, Lori owned a salon for 18 years. After a brief sabbatical, she's back in the salon game, adding to her two decades of experience by rendering a full slate of hair, nail, and waxing services. Lori's passion for people seeps into each manicure, brow wax, and keratin treatment she performs; she particularly enjoys meeting new clients. Lori and her daughter, Ashley, also a senior stylist, render color treatments such as retouches, partial or full highlights, and polish changes for nails.
As a third-generation stylist, it's fair to say that James Blake has barbacide in his blood. When customers walk into his salon, he wants them to be overwhelmed with warmth––free chocolates, fresh coffee and tea, and the soothing scent of Onesta's plant-based shampoos. Styling is always tailored to the individual's features and personality. Guests can solicit one of James's skilled hair techs for a bold cut and color treatment, or request a specialty botanical keratin blowout to straighten and fortify unwieldy hair.
Anyone can pick up a pair of scissors and start snipping locks into cute bobs and cottontails, but it's rare to find someone who goes on a five-year vision quest to refine their styling skills. Fortunately for the people of Naples, Allante Salon has corralled a savvy staff of stylists who have all spent at least half a decade honing their craft. Now, whether a client wants a simple trim or chic ombre highlights, this team is perfect for the job.
