Though makeup artist and aesthetician Amanda Ryan has been in the skincare industry for 20 years, she still hasn't settled on a favorite anti-aging treatment. That's because she constantly updates her arsenal, staying abreast of the latest skincare techniques and anti-aging technologies, from exfoliations infused with plant stem cells to mechanical facials that actually try to retrain facial muscles to youthfully lift, tighten, and gape at uncles who pull coins out from behind ears. Her expertise and commitment to individualized services help her to quell any of her clients' worries about not understanding the modern-sounding treatments. She follows up treatments with advice for each client on how to care for and maintain his or her skin at home. Some regular facials and makeup treatments even include a complete lesson on DIY skincare. One of the secrets? Finding the right products to care for your skin. In her office inside the Dominic and Company Inclusive Salon and Day Spa, Amanda uses her personal line of vitamin-enriched cosmetics, Adryan Essentials.

Though they can both claim illustrious careers in the hairstyling industry, Joey and Nikki followed very different paths to get to where they are today. Joey trained with Aveda in 1989 and then took his scissors on the road, snipping strands in salons from Nashville to LA. Nikki, on the other hand, has spent most of her 35-year career honing her management skills as the owner of a successful Cincinnati salon. In 2007, they joined forces to create Joey & Roman Salon—Roman is Nikki’s last name—a Kérastase Paris salon specializing in cuts, color, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments.
The salon is also home to stylists Chris and Jon, each of whom has spent at least one year training under Joey, learning to execute the latest styles and refining scissor-hand agility by clipping a blizzard of paper snowflakes. Industrial touches permeate the ultramodern space: stylists store their haircare products and equipment in heavy-duty Craftsman tool cabinets and sheets of corrugated tin line the slate-gray walls.
Passionate about helping clients revamp their image via both dramatic and subtle changes to their hair, experienced stylist Pamela Dawson facilitates mane transformations thanks to a host of salon services. Amid Studio Elements’ glossy wooden floors and ultramodern decor, Pamela can be found at her styling station chatting cheerfully with her patrons as she colors and cuts their hair. She also adds volume to flat hair via perms and eases tightly wound strands with relaxers and gentle yet supportive bear hugs.
Anna Beauty Center’s therapists and aestheticians evince a passion for beauty as they eradicate stress and blemishes with massages and diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatments. When they aren’t exfoliating and hydrating skin, they enhance complexions with cosmetic makeovers and groom bushy tails with waxing services. For added inspiration, they surround themselves with Shiseido, Skin Renew, and qiora products.
Bryan Beaver has traveled the world in search of beauty. The master stylist and colorist has visited top salons in New York City, Miami, and Paris, where he developed his signature, French-influenced style. Along the way, he’s mentored hundreds of stylists in the ways of cutting-edge fashion and had his work showcased in Elle, Vogue, and on a billboard on the moon.
At home, Bryan oversees a talented staff of stylists, makeup artists, and nail technicians at his salon. He and his team create stylish and wearable looks in private styling stations outfitted with crystal chandeliers and full-length mirrors. The rest of the space is ultra-chic, too, with lime-green walls, minimalist furniture, and colorful artwork.
