Many different cultures and ethnicities contribute to the tapestry that is America, each with its own traditions and customs. At Eden Salon, stylists embrace all hair types no matter the ethnic background. They specialize in hair services that cater to a wide array of hair textures and types, like curly, kinky or super fine. They can create a natural look, press hair to straight and soft, or add extensions to existing tresses.
Usha Salon & Day Spa might best be known for meticulous threading services, which twice garnered a spot on Baltimore Magazine's annual "Best Of" list. But the skills of the house stylists and aestheticians don't stop there. They can also reshape coifs with stylish cuts and add face-framing dimension with highlights services. Nearby, Usha's henna artists use traditional Indian techniques to install intricate designs that are perfect for standing apart from the crowd or blending in with a pile of tea-stained lace. Clients can also take a break from humdrum chores with soothing facials and massages.
Decorated in blond wood, pink, and black, Ora's Hair Studio is stylish and friendly. The same goes for its owner and head stylist, Ora. She knows just what to do with hair of any texture. Depending on the client's style, that could mean a dramatic asymmetrical bob, mermaid-worthy long extensions, or ombre stripes in gorgeous jewel tones.
Rather than juggling a menu of spa services, the aesthetician at Eyebrows at Studio 54 focuses on just one area: the eyebrows. Using a twist of pure cotton thread, she sweeps away unwanted hair with controlled precision, shaping brows into sultry arches, going ultra-thin, or merely cleaning up their perimeter. Developed in ancient India, this threading technique requires no waxes or chemicals.
Jasmen Davis got her start as a freelance wedding makeup artist, but that was just the foundation. These days her resume boasts eye-catching clients such as CoverGirl, Christian Siriano, and Under Armour. When not creating fresh makeup looks for TV and film productions, special events, and scuba dives, she helps all humans look better from her post at Sass Salon. Guests can also enlist Jasmen's expertise for sleek lash extensions, which offer a voluminous look without messy mascara.
Karen Berk loves to color so much, she’s done what every kid with a pack of Crayolas dreams of doing—she made a career out of it. But it isn’t the cartoon pages of coloring books to which she applies her art; it’s the heads of her clients. At Color by Karen, Berk changes hair hues with L’Oreal Professional products and bleaches strands using a gentle solution made with Keratin, which helps hair shine. She also cleanses dirt, oil, and big scary bugs out of hair with plant-based shampoos and conditioners from the Phyto line. Her colleague, Dawn Montgomery, also brings her own expertise to the styling station. In addition to holding certifications in both Brazilian straightening and Nano-Keratin techniques, Dawn is also versed in Deva's strategies for cutting curly hair.
