Calling upon three decades of professional experience, First Choice Haircutters’ team of seasoned snippers reshapes locks using current and creative styling trends. Collaborative consultations help stylists share their personal tips, such as "cocktailing" two different styling products to enhance their benefits or wielding Designline moisturizing products to repair hair damaged by the frigid assault of winter. Stylists welcome drop-in visits, allowing customers to tame hair right before work or right after a lunch date in a wind tunnel.

When the nearby Fallsview Casino caught on to Vincent Petti’s talents, developed over his more than 35 years in the beauty industry, its staff started having him come and do hair for visiting celebrities. To date, his star clientele has included Olivia Newton-John, Michael Bublé, Emily Blunt, and Andrea Bocelli, among others. But Vincent and his team don't reserve star treatment for stage-bound clients. They transform everyday looks with flattering cuts and colours, as well as add modelesque glam with hair extensions. The staff also includes makeup artists—integral contributors to the salon's wedding-day services—as well as nail technicians who ready hands and feet for televised toe-touching competitions.
At Cut & Clips Salon, owner Laura Fantrazo and her team of stylists cater to the haircare needs of men, women, and children.

In addition to adding face-framing layers and snipping wayward strands, the stylists use highlights and all-over color to design new looks with striking depth and dimension. Cut & Clips Salon's waxes can also help clients by uprooting any unwanted stubble.
It isn?t just the bride-to-be at the appointment inside Island Hair Studio.

The party leaves in a cloud of giggles and cartoon hearts, and the stylist welcomes her next client in need of a cut and color touch-up. Feet away, another customer holds her hands steady as a nail technician paints all ten digits in a bright pink polish.
