They call themselves "the Moxie Twins," and Jen and Jamie's combination of beauty, confidence, and expertise make it easy to see why they rocketed to national attention as the stylists in residence on VH1's Why Am I Still Single?!. On the show, the identical duo would team up to perform five-minute whirlwind makeovers that proved to be the best way to look amazing quickly, apart from getting shot with a glitter cannon.
Now that they've moved on from their televised career, they're focusing on their multiple style sanctuaries. At their Moxie Blow Dry Bars, teams of expert stylists, colorists, and makeup artists perform their own makeovers that transform men and women from all walks of life.
The stylists at Gisela's Beauty Center & Spa create fresh, modern looks with hair and makeup services. Their haircuts, color, and styles reinvent old dos or refine pre-existing styles. The center also staffs makeup artists who help emphasize clients' facial features and create looks that ties faces and coifs together. Clients can stop by for a simple trim or a complete makeover, or to prepare for a big night, such as a prom or a reunion of the class of '89's prom chaperones.
There are three bars in Bars of Beauty?a blowout bar, a facial bar, and a makeup bar here. Each one promises a stunning new look in 45 minutes or fewer, whether clients are getting one of four signature hairstyles, an express facial that deep-cleanses and balances, or airbrush makeup applications. For a more in-depth facial treatment, they can opt for a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. Bars of Beauty also hosts private events, ideal for birthdays, bachelorette parties, or just a girls' night out, complete with champagne and treatments tailored to the revelers' beauty desires.
The beauty experts at Salon Elegance call upon a decade of experience to craft new looks, along with a toolkit of makeup, henna paste, and Scruples hair products. In addition to cuts, color services, and keratin treatments, staffers specialize in the ancient art of threading, a natural hair-removal method. They create temporary henna tattoos by mixing a base of lemon juice, sugar, and essential oils, the same ingredients used to make aromatherapeutic lemonade. Red curtains frame the windows behind a comfy black leather couch, and rust-colored walls and assorted potted plants give the space a warm, welcoming vibe.
Cocktail glasses clink as stylists Jennifer Turrin and her husband Antoine work. These Thursday salon happy hours represent the jovial vibe that the couple curates in Antoine?s Salon. The hospitality continues when the stylists accompany their men?s, women?s, and children?s hairstyling services with extras including robes, snacks, beverages, and all the oxygen you can breathe, within reason. The stylists also provide styling tips so that clients can maintain their results at home.
