Since becoming a certified stylist in 1997, Frances has been an educator for Matrix International and has worked international beauty shows and New York’s Fashion Week. Committed to continued education, she has also pursued advanced training with both the Aveda Institute and the Redken Exchange in Manhattan.

Frances continues to propel standards at her own salon, Belleza, particularly with her signature Brazilian blowout treatments. In an attempt to reduce clients’ contact with formaldehyde, she has modified her treatments in two ways—first, she offers clients the option of using Zero+ or lite formulas. The Zero+ solution is formaldehyde-free, and lite treatments are applied in an express time frame that minimizes exposure to the product. Secondly, Frances has invested in two modern technologies that reduce airborne pollutants: Izunami fume irons, whose built-in suction components draw fumes from the air, and the Pure Air chemical-fume extraction system, featuring a 16-inch hood that is positioned above a client’s head to oxidize chemicals while also suffusing her brain with new vocab words.

Stylist and certified color specialist Deanna believes color treatments should do more than change the hair?s appearance; they should improve hair overall. After 12 years and multiple color classes, she has become certified in Scruples hair-color techniques, which are designed to get hair glowing with vibrant reds, brunettes, and blondes while infusing strands with silicone conditioners and safeguarding hair against sunlight by absorbing UV rays. In addition to her high-end hair services, Deanna also primps nails with mani-pedis and artificial nail applications.

Lori Baumann, owner of Tangerine Hair Salon, and her experienced staff mold manes with products by Alterna, Redken, and Sojourn. The spacious salon achieves a trendy, urban feel with slate-blue walls, black polished floors, and track lighting. When guests arrive, plush zebra-print chairs greet their backsides while a coffee pot cheerfully percolates beneath an orange and gold floral painting. Stylists craft new 'dos at stations equipped with full-length mirrors and topped with exotic flowers. When they aren't performing haircuts, adding highlights, or curling locks, they subdue frizzy tresses with smoothing treatments and commands shouted in German.

A piece of string and hands is all it takes to remove unwanted body hair at Salon Mayfair Threading & Spa, where the staff is versed in the ancient art of threading. By strategically wrapping strands, they can gently and precisely remove hair from brows, upper lips, and foreheads. Their expertise extends beyond hair removal, though; they also perform facials, haircuts, and intricate henna tattoos for bridal parties.
