The staff at Hairteck model their studio after European salons to pursue a with their hair, nail, and massage services: to emphasize each client's natural beauty. They approach their salon services as if "the face is a picture and the hair is the frame," so stylists craft the most museum-ready tresses after personal consultations that determine a style that will fit the client's look and lifestyle. Massage therapists create a peaceful oasis with plush carpeting, soft light, and a trio of bonsai trees to help guests relax and enjoy Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone services.
Walls of smooth stones add a rustic contrast to the interior's modern style. Bold, black shapes hold tall mirrors in front of asymmetrical styling chairs, and red accents liven up the neutral color palette in the form of a sleek couch in the waiting area and artwork throughout the salon.
Sharon Medina appointed the neutral walls of Posh Beauty Lounge with butterflies and full-length mirrors. In the waiting area at the center of the salon, orange pillows rest on wicker furniture that plays counterpoint to ultra-modern styling chairs. Sharon leads a team of stylists inside this Paul Mitchell Focus Salon and spends her spare time working as an instructor. Her team tends to 'dos with services ranging from texture-altering body wave and keratin treatments to hair extensions. Makeup artists also adorn faces with shimmering shades and permanent makeup. The latter technique inks skin with smudge-proof hues that can be worn to bed, unlike suit of armor pajamas.
Iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe hang from the bubblegum-pink walls of Your Hearts Desire Hair Studio. That starlet’s rise to fame is an inspiration to the salon’s stylists and nail technicians, who do everything in their power to make clients Hollywood-ready. Aside from face-flattering haircuts and highlights, they offer indulgent spa treatments such as hot-stone mani-pedis. From time to time, they even enhance their nail treatments with seasonal scents that include peppermint, apple spice, and fresh-baked popsicle.
At Tangles Hair Studio, stylists with advanced training tame tresses with custom cuts and color sessions or keratin conditioning treatments. During their precut consultation, clients disclose mane-related hopes and fears to stylists who then precision-cut hair into bobs, bouffants, or Kafkaesque layers. Patrons can also opt for single-color partial highlights, which can, over the course of 30 minutes to two hours, add dimension to drab hair. Next, a L’Oreal Power Dose conditioning treatment, tailored to hair types and frizz struggles, takes 5 to 10 minutes and adds shine that endures up to 10 shampoos or one deep-fried larding. Hair-care packages close with a blow-dry and custom style.
Although creative cuts and color headline the menu at Peanut's Hair Attraction, Peanut and her team offer a number of additional salon services. The resident nail techs, for instance, beautify hands and feet with glittery french pedicures and acrylic tips that can add much-needed length to fingernails or store-bought reaching canes. Likewise, the waxing specialists whisk unwanted hair from nearly any area of the anatomy while other staff members soothe stressed muscles and minds with gentle massage.
Natural light floods through the salon's floor-to-ceiling front windows, reflecting off of hardwood floors, elegant silver mirrors, and soothing taupe walls. Amid these cozy accents, skilled hair stylists do everything from snip away split ends to engineer flattering color highlights. Guests may also slide into a comfortable leather chair for a facial wax, or retreat to a private room for a one of the specialty anti-aging facial treatments.
