Unlike the playground game it takes its name from, Rock Paper Scissors Hair Salon has nothing to do with competition. Instead, the staff members—who have more than 35 years of combined experience—emphasize cooperation as they work closely with their clients to craft personalized looks with their extensive assortment of hair services. Inside the modern and sleek salon, in which red fixtures dangle like stalactites, the stylists work their magic with high-end products from Goldwell, L'Oréal, Simply Smooth, and Moroccanoil. The team also encourages clients to enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, wine, or their choice of a high-five or bear hug—but customers must supply the bear.
Flower arrangements and chic furniture decorate the interior of ThuLan Nail Retreat, hinting at its staff's passion for beauty. The pampering experts transfer that passion into spa treatments that leave clients looking and feeling their best. Nail services range from manicures and pedicures with hot-stone massages to organic gel nails. Eyelash and brow tinting, eyelash extensions, and permanent makeup also beautify guests.
While one staffer carefully draws on an intricate henna tattoo, another uses two twisted threads to cleanly remove unwanted facial hair. This is the Threading & Henna Salon, where the team specializes in Indian beauty services, including herbal facials. The licensed aestheticians are also experts in waxing and makeup applications, which they can tailor to a night out, a wedding, or an afternoon black-tie barbecue.
The decor at Top Level Salon may be simple, but its treatments are anything but. A flash of color at the ends gives hair a trendy ombre effect. Eyelash extensions take the place of mascara for a bold, dramatic look. And instead of being done with traditional brushes, makeup is airbrushed on to ensure a flawless application.
Little Ms Bella Beautique's owner is both a beautician and mother to a young daughter. She believes that personal creativity, self-expression, and pampering should not fall solely in the province of adults, so she brought those elements together when she opened the children's spa and boutique. Here, young girls can get their hair styled and colored using ammonia-free coloring, indulge in a spa mani-pedi, or go for the complete makeover that includes hair-and-nail treatments. Kids are invited to tea parties where they can don dresses, boas, and wings and let their creativity run wild; the spa also hosts birthday parties with themes such as Fashionista, Fairy, and Princess.
The New You Hair Salon's staff strives to put clients at ease as soon as they enter the waiting area, which features black leather armchairs, potted plants and vases of flowers, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Before long, a staff member ushers customers back to one of the styling chairs that fill the red-and-tan-walled salon.
The staff consists of nail technicians and stylists who stay up-to-date with contemporary styling techniques by attending classes and competing in high-stakes trivia contests. They utilize these techniques along with professional haircare products by Schwarzkopf and Sebastian to reshape clients' locks into flattering looks that reflect their personal styles.
