Inside Jin's Studio 35 Hair & Nails, owner Jinsun Matarese transforms locks from frizzy tendrils to sleek tresses through keratin treatments, Brazilian blowouts, and Japanese hair-straightening techniques. Drawing on her training in Japan, Jin skillfully uses the salon's Japanese hair-straightening system to tame unwanted curls. In addition to smoothing locks, she and her stylists cut and color manes, adding carefully blended highlights and lowlights to create natural-looking tones. Jin’s Studio rounds out beauty treatments with nail services; waxing; full-body, custom spray tans; or full-consciousness swaps of your mind into another patron's body.
Who says you have to choose between style and substance? At Image Nation Salons and Medspa, the team focuses on hair and skin treatments but also offers med-spa treatments for healing or more dramatic cosmetic changes. Offering more than simple cuts, the stylists tame hair with color, texturization, and reverse psychology. Facial treatments range from deep pore cleansing for acne to a gel peel designed to minimize fine lines. In the medspa corner, high-tech services include dermal fillers and vein-minimizing sclerotherapy in addition to soothing services like reflexology, Swedish massage, and detoxifying herbal wraps.
The technicians at St. Tropez Nail Spa stay abreast of advancements in mani-pedi science. In addition to applying acrylic nails, they paint on chip-resistant shellac as an alternative to flakier polishes. They also embellish fingers with NexGenNails, which avoid the nail-bed damage caused by certain acrylics and the distinctive smell caused by painting your nails with expired ketchup. Their services encompass skin treatments as well; a leg mask and exfoliation top off the spa pedicure, and facials and permanent-makeup applications round out the spa menu.

Even at the height of her career at IBM, Gwendolyn Willie felt that something was missing. She decided on a career change and dove headfirst into the prestigious Toni and Guy training program. Now, with IBM in the rear-view, she has spent the last 10 years setting her sights on reprogramming hairstyles in her own studio. In the salon, featured on KTXA-TV news, guests can solicit her expertise for flattering layers, highlights, or a restorative condition treatment to fortify hair. And for gents, she borrows a page from a barbershop’s playbook. Straight-razor shaves use hot lather to open up the pores to give a closer shave than an electric razor.
For more than 20 years, Bridgette, a nail aficionado, has transformed fingertips from boring to brilliant, applying her special flair for Minx overlays. The thin, printed pieces enliven nails or boring 18th-century stamp collections with metallic shades or dazzling patterns, such as pink cheetah print and houndstooth. The overlays last for 14 days—the same length of time Bridgette’s Shellac manicures go without chipping. In addition to mani-pedis, Bridgette de-fuzzes skin with waxes that leave bodies just as ready for flaunting as newly painted finger- and toenails.
