At Chloe Hair Colour & Design, an Aveda salon, the staff kicks off every visit with a thorough consultation that charts the proper path toward personalized hair fashion. They whisk guests past a massive selection of Aveda products toward black leather salon chairs or black leather loungers, the latter of which nestle up next to a color bar. After haircuts, full colors, or partial highlights?just a snapshot of their service menu?the stylists teach a bit of homecare education, so that clients know it?s okay to put their hairstyles near mousse but not a mouse.
Studio V Salon & Spa was designed with relaxation in mind. Lilac walls surround the inviting space, decorated with free-standing mirrors and mod white salon chairs. Manning each chair is an experienced stylist, ready to cut hair into classic and modern looks and add a sun-kissed glow to strands with highlights. Clients can enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks during appointments as well, avoiding the awkwardness of having their stomach growl out their inner thoughts.
Cathy Thom understands how little changes can make a big difference. The board-certified hair colorist set out to prove that fact to clients when she opened Total Hair & Skin nearly 20 years ago. Thom, and the rest of the staff, can instantly change someone’s look with a little hair color, hair cut, or beard trim. Clients also enjoy gentle peels to cleanse faces of acne and excess oil, and quick waxing appointments to remove unwanted hair on the upper lip or eyeballs.
Stylist Rachel Roes McCoy began her haircare career at 16, when she started shaping new coiffures for her family and friends. Since then, she has become a certified facial-waxing specialist and trained with stylists Martin Parsons and Nick Arrojo from TLC's What Not to Wear. Nowadays, McCoy showcases her expertise with shears at Studio La Vie, where she severs split ends, snips away tangled fishing lines, and performs coloring and waxing services.
