Ana Gutierrez-Aleman has long been a fan of the Confucius quote "choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." And after a decade-long career in hair, it's her own personal gospel. Ana co-helms Cowboys & Angels Hair Studio with friend and stylist Ashlie De Crosta––a graduate of the prestigious Paul Mitchell hairstyling school and a fellow enthusiast for all things coiffure. The duo cut the hair of women (dubbed "angels"), and wrangle men ("cowboys") in a barbicide lasso during styling sessions.
The beauty experts at Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio take a personal interest in their clients’ pores. They perform complimentary assessments of skin type before plucking the proper makeup from a varied inventory, ensuring foundations and shadows flatter complexions and compound eyes. Comprised of cosmetics and skincare from the Merle Norman line, which was born in Los Angeles in 1931, the beautifying powders and serums can be tested in-store before purchase. That means customers can sweep bronzing powder across cheekbones and seal in the sun-kissed hues with Expert Touch Finishing Spray before deciding if it really matches their favorite ski mask. In addition to the studio’s namesake line, staffers also stock professional OPI nail polish, perfumes, and accessories.
Owner Mythili Muktevi truly believes the maxim that beauty starts from within. To this end, she focuses not only on fulfilling the beautification needs of her clients but on enveloping them in a welcoming, self-affirming environment. She and her talented team utilize a range of facials to quell troubles on a variety of skin types, infusing treatments with herbs, fruits, and plants that encourage glowing complexions and invigorate mental activity. Within the beauty haven’s salon area, stylists renovate lackluster locks with women’s and men’s haircuts and opt for relaxers and perms to transform the texture of manes. Additionally, waxing and threading sessions sweep away unwanted hairs, and henna services utilize a temporary dye to ink intricate designs along the body, eliminating the need to put a pet squid through art school.
With their combined expertise in hair styling and finance, sisters Kay and Kesalynn joined the family tradition started by their grandmother, Lady Eloise, and opened a salon.

And with services ranging from Brazilian blowouts to afro relaxers or spiral sets, the salon's stylists do exactly that. Hot oil and nourishing maks, along with soothing pressure-point shampoos or romantic sonnets whispered to the scalp, enhance hair health as well as style.
