At Facelogic, botanical-based creams and clinical cosmeceutical blends work hand-in-hand to stall the aging process, defeat dryness, and erase blemishes. Éminence organic products use natural ingredients to treat common skin conditions without harsh chemicals, and the Image Skincare line delivers alpha- and beta-hydroxyl acids to the skin in order to erase signs of aging and acne blemishes. Services include spray tanning, waxing, back treatments, and hydrafacials. Dr. Kenneth Baird is responsible for the spa's cosmetic injections, which infuse skin with Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane to lessen the depth of fine lines and wrinkles.
Penny Whittington is a whiz at getting rid of overgrown hair.

At Studio Nouveau, Penny and the rest of the stylists support charities such as American Cancer Society and Locks of Love.
Each of Pro-Cuts' more than 150 locations embodies the company's casual, no-frills ethos in its own way. The salon owners cultivate an atmosphere approachable to families and menfolk while sustaining an undercurrent of elegance. The quick-snipping Pro-Cuts stylists specialize in the Pro-Cuts 15-minute haircut, followed by a 10-hour eulogy for sideburns past. While services vary by location, typical offerings include kids cuts, beard trimming, and shampoo service powered by big-name salon brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Shoppers happening past Mina's Salon's glass storefront at The Shops at Willow Bend will catch glimpses of master stylists cutting and coloring coifs against an elegant backdrop of black-and-white damask. The team's 26 years of service and proficiency in hair telepathy make selecting an appropriate product for each set of tresses simple, with colorfully stocked shelves offering the latest nourishing elixirs from Kérastase Paris and restorative hair masks by Moroccanoil. When not busy sculpting strands, the staff also pampers overworked hands and overdanced feet with relaxing massages and warm paraffin dips and leaves skin silky smooth with waxing services that expand southwards from the brow.
Every time Jubilee Hair Studio's stylists consider a client's face shape, hair texture, and skin tone, they draw upon experience honed on two continents. Educated in both Europe and the United States at such training academies as Toni & Guy, Bumble and bumble, and Sassoon, they pride themselves on keeping pace with international trends. This attentiveness has sharpened the stylists' expertise with short styles, earning the salon a place in 7x7's list of Four SF Salons Specializing in Short Cuts. It's also enhanced their color work—when not at the salon, owner Jubilee uses her skills to teach color classes for TIGI or apply vibrant highlights to washed-out rainbows.
Claudia Phillips, a cosmetologist for more than 28 years and founder of The Styling Hutch, blazed a trail for her staff by becoming certified in Ouidad curly-hair styling.

By focusing on taming frizz, Claudia and her team ease the difficulties many curly-haired clients commonly have, leaving hair as soft and manageable as a group of stuffed-animal employees. Also adept at straight-hair styling, the team cuts and colors strands with moisturizing products from Ouidad, Mixed Chicks, and Moroccanoil.
