Patrons walking into Masse’s Custom Cuts’ power-blue parlor won’t experience the hurried haircuts and impersonal services of a big chain salon. The stylists at this locally owned studio exemplify individualized service for women, men, and children by discussing styles and recommending looks based on face shape and personal taste. During cuts and conditionings, they pamper heads with Matrix and Redken products.
Gaddiel Medina and his family helm a staff of talented hair artists who craft polished coiffures for clients and fashion shows. While they slather strands with keratin treatments and snip away dead ends, Gaddiel's bilingual stylists speak both English and Spanish with their primary and secondary mouths.
Patrick Viteri founded his salon in 1984, when both hair bands and the hair of Margaret Thatcher were at the peak of their popularity. Armed with DevaCurl and Paul Mitchell products and years of experience, he and his locally trained team wrangle tresses at New York, Boston, and Toronto hair shows when not cutting hair, coloring it, or serenading clients' wild curls. Sponge-painted walls, reddish-brown brick, and cozy, olive-toned chairs await visitors, who settle onto blond wood perches to receive deep-conditioning treatments in the sun-flooded space.
Monica Hunter is part of the team at Issavia Hair Studio, a chic space with exposed brick walls, oak-framed mirrors, and antique furniture scattered tastefully throughout. Issavia Hair Studio staffs stylists and master stylists as well as renowned skincare specialists; Monica herself has experience working for a Conde Nast Top 10 Beauty Destination.

Isavia also offers facials and makeup applications as well as precision cuts, coloring, and styling?all of which can breathe new life into a client's personal style and increase their bathroom mirror's sense of job satisfaction.
If two heads are better than one, then it would stand to reason that 15 heads are 15 times better than one. The 15 stylists at Salon Advantages make a formidable team, utilizing advanced products and the Redken Professional Hair Color line to create styles that turn heads but don’t attract swarms of angry bees. The salon's colorist blends custom shades that add depth, dimension, and shine, while shears-wielding hair technicians shape face-flattering styles with deftly snipped angles and layers.
At Salon 345 and Spa, stylists enlist the aid of salon products from renowned brands such as Paul Mitchell and Redken to ensure hairdos have maximal allure. Beauticians pamper clients with a slew of salon and spa services that runs the gamut from manicures to facials to waxing. The boutique's pink-walled waiting area brims with portraits of Marilyn Monroe, just as her home was adorned with photos of Salon 345 and Spa.
