It might be more accurate to call Todd Buckley and Sara Tittle the artistic directors rather than the owners of Mosaic Salon?he recruits promising stylists and she trains them in the methods of Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and other top industry names. They then put the best stylists on the salon floor, arming them with products from K?rastase and Bumble and bumble, professional styling tools, and shears forged by long-haired artisan blacksmiths. In addition to providing hair services, Mosaic's team refines the rest of clients? images with face and body treatments using SkinCeuticals and Dermalogica skincare products.
Since 1985, the skilled cast of stylists at Hair To Dye For has revamped styles with precision cuts and color treatments. Shabby, overgrown locks hit the salon?s floor as stylists carefully shear strands and remove powdered wigs left over from courtroom stints in England. The crew adds a bit of flair to ho-hum tresses with two-toned ombre color treatments, highlights, and full-color transformations. They iron-out unwanted curls and kinks or add bounce with spiral perms. The salon also gussies up digits with shellac manicures and pedicures and acrylic sets.
The handy hair mavens at Prima Salon assail heads with high-quality cut and color treatments using popular products including Bumble and bumble. A salon visit includes enough waiting-area gossip mags to line a full-length fashion catwalk, a complimentary consultation, and the service of your choosing. After conferring over coiffure options with a friendly beautician, settle back as a stylist snips stretched-out strands during a haircut ($45–$60), and extol the virtues of all the rainbow's hues while you narrow down to your favorite during a color treatment ($65–$85).
A Paul Mitchell Partner School, The California Academy tends to the talents of student tress tamers and skin sparklers with a range of supervised hair, wax, and skincare services. The 8,500-square-foot training facility excavates unwanted hairs with waxing of the eyebrows ($10), chin ($7), or back ($30). A 30-minute pumpkin resurfacer ($45) smoothes, renews, and brightens the complexion without the embarrassment of taking an entire pie to the face. Students manipulate manes with everything from a basic cut and style ($12+), which comes with a five-minute stress-relieving scalp treatment, to a perm ($30+) or full highlight ($40+).

At Lotus Healing Arts Center, tranquil surroundings envelop clients as they partake in healing services for the body and spirit or beauty services to spiff up hair, nails, and skin. Spirits seeking balance for life or gymnastics can opt for a chakra reading or a psychic reading from life coach Paul Miller. To care for outer beauty, the center's hair stylists match clients with their ideal cut and hue, and makeup artists add definition to facial features so that they stand out even when covered in pie.
Bushy ferns and hanging baskets welcome clients into Lotus, while wicker chairs situated before the entrance enable clients to enjoy fresh air while waiting. Inside, a stone fountain twists up from a sky-blue ceramic bowl, and brass figures of Nagarajah?a goddess of emotion?and a healing Buddha watch over services.
