For clients with curly hair, trips to Synergy Hair Salon don't inspire anxiety. That's because the stylists specialize in cutting, de-frizzing, straightening, and caring for curly manes. The salon has an on-staff stylist who trained at the Deva Curl Institute in NYC. This allows her to not only provide cuts customized to spiraling hair, but also instruct her clients in the proper care of curls. For clients who want to change things up, the staff can smooth hair with thermal hair straightening treatments. They can even perm naturally-straight hair into perfect spirals to give hair a light, bouncy texture. No matter what style customers walk out with, stylists infuse hair with an extra dose of healthy oils with their products made with vegan nutrients. These help moisturize hair so that it is protected from the elements without wearing a plastic cap or always driving in the direction away from the rain.
Five minutes. That’s all it takes for Master Eyebrow Threading & Full Services Salon’s technicians to groom bushy brows. And they don’t just do brows; the team twists and turns sturdy thread across lips, chins, and cheeks, grabbing and removing unwanted hair and sewing together oversize pores as they go. Though thread is their favorite tool, the crew trades it in for warm wax to smooth arms, legs, and bikini areas, and uses scissors to snip hair. Clients can match their new ‘dos with a single-process color treatment or luminous highlights. The salon team administers three facial treatments as well, including a traditional European cleansing and a facial massage in 30- and 60-minute intervals.
At Made Ya Look salon, style gurus beautify clients from the tips of their stylishly cut hair to their glimmering toenails. The hair experts harness their training from Redken and Sexy Hair Concepts, creating ‘dos that are both vibrant and healthy. The staff complements newly coiffed hair with airbrush makeup applications and Infinity Sun spray tanning, which coats skin in a bronze that lasts for days, unlike coloring yourself with the burnt-sienna crayon. Not forgetting the extremities, nail technicians pamper them with relaxing massages and skin-smoothing paraffin dips, and accent tips with CND Shellac and a range of acrylic extensions.
Featured in Lucky magazine, Miracolo Hair Studio is staffed by classically trained stylist Michael Guagliardo and a team of expert haircare specialists.

As they work, their clients recline on sleek white styling chairs and admire their reflections in lofty mirrors.
Tom Fuentes, the owner and head stylist of Tom Fuentes Salon, learned the ropes while attending the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London. But his passion for the trade motivates him to regularly update his skills by practicing new hairstyles on his household ficus and taking continuing-education courses. This instruction included a seven-class series led by Angel del Solar, one of the hairstylists to the stars who attended the Academy Awards in 2008. At his salon, Tom performs women’s and men’s haircuts, coloring services, and texturizing treatments.
