Updos, downdos, and perms: the licensed stylists at A Cut Above sculpt all these looks. Employing products from top-selling brands, they also dye hair and add highlights. They also schedule services for wedding parties, and makeover mannequins that fill seats at opening nights of plays that haven’t sold out.
The stylists and nail technicians at Tahira's Beauty Salon & Day Spa pamper skin and hair with a lengthy list of services. Cuts and styles bound toward more adventurous territory with creative color, braiding, or extensions. Aestheticians customize facial treatments for men and women to address complexions stressed with acne or aging and can add additional herbal, or multivitamin properties to facials. To tame errant hairs, aestheticians use threading to naturally and gently shape brow lines, and waxing employs warm wax to remove fuzz on delicate areas such as the bikini line or abs that have had a tough year. With each service, Tahira's uses only salon-trusted products such as Aveda, CND nail products, and Rep?chage.
Jawhara Sawsan grew up watching her mother?an artist, sculptor, and seamstress?successfully channel her creativity into vivid physical expressions. She set about finding the best medium for her own artistic ideas. Soon, she realized that a simple childhood pastime?braiding her dolls' hair under the instruction of her aunt Cynthia?held a deeper appeal. As an adult, she turned her passion for hair into a career, attending cosmetology school and opening her own salon, populated by a loyal clientele bearing a rich palette of diverse ethnicities and hair types.
In 2010, the big leagues called, and Jawhara answered, becoming Lauryn Hill's personal stylist and following the fashion-forward singer on her winter and summer tours the following year. While the former Fugee?s unique and risky style enabled Jawhara to push the limits of her creativity, she?s just as happy doing what she?s always done: beautifying clients with extensions, weaves, and straightening treatments. Even though her life on the road is over for now, she also refuses to tame her artistic nature, sharing cutting-edge looks through her portfolio and interpretive dances about scissors.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Above a silver front desk, a neon sign glows in Indigo Salon's namesake color, casting its gleam onto wire racks stocked with Bumble and bumble styling products. Black leather salon chairs set the stage for hair makeovers enhanced with smoothing keratin treatments, highlights, or other services.
