Part of what makes Julie Martin the stylist she is today has a lot to do with her experiences on both sides of the chair. She kicked off her career as a professional model, getting an impromptu apprenticeship in the types of tricks and techniques that go into creating a magazine-quality look. Eventually, she channeled that experience—along with some time spent training as a Paul Mitchell stylist—into her own boutique.
At La Vita Salon, she treats her clients like models in their own fashion shoot, talking through details and style preferences to pull off a look original to that client. In addition to haircuts and blowouts, Julie applies professional color and constructs elegant updos that increase her clients chances of getting voted “Most Updone” for the office yearbook.
Redken, Loreal, Bio Ionic, and Brazilian Blowout aren't just names of brands or Donatella Versace's favorite cats. They're also some of the credentials listed on stylist Irina Volkova's resume. Having spent nearly a decade training with these and other products, she continues her education behind the salon chair every day. As a part of her dedication to her clients' styles, she also continues to attend advanced training classes in the latest products and techniques. With her own space inside ?Elite Hair Studios?where she runs Your Style with Irina?she offers her clients services that include highlights, perms, and up dos.
With nearly a decade of aesthetics-experience under her belt, Christine Alquist can solve a multitude of skin issues.

Nevaeh is an Aveda concept salon, providing clients with top-notch customer service and a wide variety of treatments designed to tame wily manes. Noodle nest nurturing begins with a relaxing neck, scalp, and shoulder massage before lackluster locks are shampooed, snipped, and clipped by one of Nevaeh’s skilled stylists. After a tress trimming, hairy head helmets are shaped and sculpted, using Aveda’s plant-based, aromatic products. Nevaeh’s upscale and tranquil environment is a calming place to pamper head whiskers. Just because linear time is an illusion doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some for yourself; call ahead to make a reservation.
It's rare to find a hairstylist that makes house calls, and even rarer to find an entire beauty team willing to come to you. But that's exactly what the crew behind Beauty Entourage & Salon do best. The staff of cosmetologists, hairstylists, and makeup artists travel on-location to help customers get ready for weddings and other occasions, with a service menu that includes everything from hair and lash extensions to airbrush tanning. And for those who prefer the traditional salon experience, the team also has a permanent parking spot at Salon Alexander.

The aesthetician takes care of skin, rehydrating faces and waxing everything from legs to wings.
