Under the watchful eye of a licensed professional, John Amico School of Hair Design's trained cosmetology pupils prove their hair-snipping, shaping, and taming skills with a wide variety of salon services. With the Amino Amplex treatment (a $150–$250 value depending on thickness and length), one of the school's student-stylists de-frizzes damaged hair with a formaldehyde-free formula, straightening and shining locks with an elixir concocted from amino acids and a vial of Rapunzel's tears. The father-and-son-owned cosmetology school teaches its disciples to complete the process in between three and four hours, upon which clients will sport a straighter, more relaxed style for up to three months.
At Hanancy Nail Salon, owners Tiger and Nancy Huynh specialize exclusively in nail care. The duo and their staff doll up fingers and toes with everything from vibrant coats of polish to Shellac gel to acrylic fills. During their various manicure and pedicure treatments, hands and feet are treated to exfoliating paraffin therapy, hot-stone foot massages, and rounds of footsie with a fuzzy stuffed animal.
