The experienced stylists at Hair Rage deftly trim shining tresses and technicians pamper fingers and toes with expert nail services. During an initial hair consultation, clients meet with stylists to discuss which cuts will attractively frame their features or enhance the realism of a rubber Richard Nixon mask. Experienced fingers then massage scalps with nourishing shampoo at rows of sleek black sinks before stylists snip, style, and blow-dry tresses at a mirrored styling station. Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.
Scissor-wielding students at Chad Barton's School of Hair Design study precision haircutting and coloring before showing off their skills during instructor-supervised cuts and colors. During men's clips, stylists transform craniums into polished cuts, hip surfer styles, or WiFi-capable mohawks. For women, they'll carefully mold locks into edgy, stylish coiffures that flatteringly frame faces. Ladies then select a color service, such as the full color treatment that's designed to morph follicular forests into grove of vibrant color, or highlights that augment natural hue. During two-color foil service, they'll paint locks with highlights and lowlights, seal strands in foil, and allow the metallic glow to infuse hair with a shimmery, dimensional look.
The follicular aficionados at Mane Results Salon tame tresses with professional-grade products designed to ease frizz and impart smoothness. After an initial consultation, a clarifying treatment raises the natural pH of supple strands, flushing out impurities and intransigent Cold War spies. A certified specialist then applies the keratin treatment, which penetrates locks to the cuticle layer and uses natural proteins to restore unruly, dry, or damaged manes. Blow-dryers help the treatment attach more securely to strands, and a titanium-plate flat-iron seals in the treatment at temperatures of up to a science-fiction-friendly 450 degrees. Both treatments take roughly 2–3 hours, but whereas the express blowout outfits heads with lustrous locks for up to eight weeks, the full keratin smoothing treatment can last for 3–5 months of shampoo-commercial readiness.
