Artistic director Celeste Rosado leads Blowdye Salon's team of stylists—which ranges from "rising stars" to Paul Mitchell educators—as they transform hair with a variety of services. Beyond basic blowouts and curl-maintaining bounce outs, they perform conservative or cutting-edge color applications that can mask grey, make brunettes more brilliant, or take blond from platinum to iridium and back again. Specialty treatments include keratin-based straightening as well as chic updos for weddings and nights on the town.
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.
Though they have a brick-and-mortar shop, Elmo's Full Service Salon's stylists spend much of their time out in the community. They make convenient house calls and administer mobile makeovers at local hospitals and rehab centers. Whether on-location or within the salon, the stylists listen carefully to each client's telepathic ponytail and select the perfect combination of services. Aside from standard cuts and colors, the staff can add hair extensions, wax eyebrows, and sculpt nails during mani-pedis.
Hair'ez Beach Salon's shoreside beauty house employs seasoned therapists and aestheticians to revivify musculature and skin in candlelit therapy rooms filled with the soundscape of ocean waves. Once guests don soft robes and settle in, technicians restore faces to factory settings with minimally abrasive diamond-tip microdermabrasion devices that gently remove the skin’s uneven outer layers. Next, the basic facial begins with a gentle cleansing and light mug massage before a steam session and exfoliation unplug clogged pores and slough away dead skin. Hydrating moisture fortifies freshened head façades beneath a detoxifying mask, and necks and hands coo as they're regaled with comfy massages. To appease jealous posteriors, the skin specialists end treatments by slathering moisturizers and warm paraffin wax across backs.

After a deft styling, hair undergoes a color treatment performed with Goldwell products. Tangles' coloring services can take care of root touchups or achieve hue ubiquity with an all-over coloring.
