Denny Kemp began his styling career as one of the first students under Horst Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda. This student has since become the master to his own protegés, passing on what he has learned within his own salon's walls, decorated with carefully selected artwork, some of it being the product of Denny’s own genius. Denny's brigade of innovative and artistic stylists spritzes clients with professional-grade products from Shu Uemura, Kérastase, Bumble and bumble, and Eminence, as well as the Dermalogica skincare line. They're also versed in smoothing frizz with keratin formulas and performing balayage and micro-foiling.
Author and Juut SalonSpa owner David Wagner channels a childhood spent watching nature’s beauty into his Aveda salon’s eight locations. The studio stylists and other staff members, many of whom benefit from the company’s extensive training program, perform services beneath shelves laden with Aveda products. The botanically sourced elixirs repair and sculpt hair naturally without subjecting it to other products’ unpleasant chemicals or a robot hairdresser’s endless questions about love.
Once you have your Groupon, you can make an appointment with one of The Uptown Hair District's master hair shamans, who know how to snip, dye, and charm even the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Your stylist will sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then carefully snip in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. Your shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($45–$80) is only part of your primping package; you'll also receive a Kerastase restructuring treatment that calms dry, damaged, and rebellious hair with a special soothing serum ($25–$55). Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of careless coiffeurs.
Within the comfy confines of Darrin James Salon, skilled stylists fashion follicles in a flurry of meticulously controlled cutting, coloring, curling, waxing, and more.

The stylists at Merrill Hair Designers, Inc. strive to heal damaged strands with chlorine- and mineral-removal treatments that restore hair's resilience and shine. Working with a fresh slate, the team can then consult with clients to settle on a new look. For instance, a Brazilian Blowout could smooth out frizz for straighter locks, or extensions can add length more efficiently tying barbells to each strand. To help friends find a flattering cut, clients can even throw a group party complete with pastries and beverages.
The salon also offers nail and spa services, from acne-fighting facials to therapeutic massages. Every skincare package, whether it's an oxygen facial with fruit enzymes or a chemical peel, is highly customized to suit specific skin types.
SpaNails has been in the thick of the nailcare industry for more than 10 years.

They also offer french manicures, nail repairs, and nail sets adorned with fashionable designs, which are more attractive and less deadly than retractable adamantium blades.
