Vidal Sassoon–trained Valerie Lopez turns manes into displays of art while working inside Cleo Hair Salon. Goldwell products help her bestow heads with new hues in the form of highlights, all-over color, or stenciled stars.

Paris Cut Hair Design's aestheticians deftly channel the ancient Middle Eastern practice of threading, a precise and speedy method of shaping brow bristles that has found popularity among many of today’s A-list celebrities. During the 15-minute threading treatment, a skilled thread tech twists a length of pure cotton thread and weaves it around overgrown brows, uprooting follicle squatters without chemicals or irritation. Ocular overscores emerge from the treatment looking sharp, streamlined, and ready to replace spit takes and eye rubbing as the preferred method of expressing disbelief.
Paul Manoogian’s 35 years of professional hairstyling experience are built upon a strong foundation—he trained in the school of groundbreaking hairstylist Vidal Sassoon.

He also employs Redken products when coloring hair or making batches of fake blood.
