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. She tames unruly strands with a Brazilian blowout formula—one of her specialties—and instantly adds length with partial weave services.
The philosophy at Blank Canvas is that anyone can be an artist with the right materials and a little encouragement. To prove this philosophy, the studio hosts weekly sessions where artists of all experience levels come together to create their own works of art based on an existing painting. Likewise, Blank Canvas encourages kids as young as pre-kindergarten and up to high-school age to follow their artistic impulses by attending classes and camps instead of drawing on the walls or painting the kitchen the wrong shade of mauve.
Armed with the metadermabolic enzymes of the Epicuren line, Jeannie Rogers cleanses and rejuvenates facial epidermises for men and women seeking pore evacuation and care beyond the bounds of ordinary products. She’ll kick off the 55-minute facial with an exfoliating, cinnamon hot peel that removes dead skin cells before they rise to feast upon the live ones. Next, two enzyme and protein masks forcibly evict any toxins they find to leave skin firm and subtly aglow. Finally, Jeannie massages the neck, shoulders, and hands to loosen the painful cramps from overly apathetic shrugs. Throughout the facial, you’ll get to bask in the white-marble reception desk and glass chandeliers of The Canyon Salon’s sleek, minimalist studio, which showcases the designing talents of Castlevania-born Takara Belmont.
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.
