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.
Andre Zeto wields her scissors as if they were an extension of her hands. She confidently snips off unwanted length, and adds face-framing layers and bangs for both classic and modern hairdos. Her work at Twisted Scizzors includes trendy color treatments such as purple streaks, ombre color, and highlights that use the color invisible.
Inside Head to Toe Salon and Spa, Erica Carter specializes in color. Wielding products from brands such as Redken and Art?go, she covers men's grays and coats women's tresses with vivid hues and bright highlights. In addition to color, she offers stylish cuts and nourishing conditioning treatments for clients of all ages.
During halo partial highlighting services, Paula Gulledge shows off her more than 20 years of styling experience by strategically highlighting strands before snipping and styling them. Hue-imbuing elixirs saturate hair shafts with rich, deep color that adds dimension to hairstyles like 3-D glasses add dimension to work commutes. After rinsing out excess dye, Paula wields shears to stop split-end invasions and carve flattering face frames. A thorough blow-dry and style molds hair into straight, curly, or wavy silhouettes, readying guests for lunch dates, romantic evenings, or photo shoots with a favorite pet rock. Guests may upgrade to full highlights for an extra fee.
