Natasha Gomez at Reflections Salon grooms women and men with haircuts, styling, highlights, and color treatments. She and the Reflections staff use products from well-known haircare brands such as Moroccanoil, Redken, and Paul Mitchell.
Warm golden tones surround clients with a sense of comfort as soon as they step inside Tangled Salon & Spa. Each hair station is outfitted with an oversize mirror, comfy leather chair, and large sable wardrobe that doubles as the stylist’s sleeping chambers. In addition to designing chic haircuts, the staff artfully shapes eyebrows and applies eyelash extensions long enough to propel a sailboat.:m]]
BC’s Salon is run by a crew with more than a decade of experience in the beauty industry, which allows them to create services for clients that get them looking their best. The salon's stylists craft sleek new hairdos, and manicurists doll up digits with gel and acrylic nails as well as rock-star glitter tips. Nancy Perez, a certified lash artist, accentuates eye regions and makes two-eyed winking acceptable with her lengthening lash extensions. Hair extensions are also available, and stylists only use 100% real hair.
At Salon DG, stylists understand the widespread impact hair can have. Rather than scrapping trimmed ends, they package them up for the Matter of Trust organization. Matter of Trust transforms the hair bits into absorbent mats, which protect coastal wildlife from hazards by sopping up oil spills and protect bald eagles from ridicule by outfitting them with tiny wigs. They also ship discarded tufts that measure 10 or more inches to Locks of Love.
Along with their philanthropic cuts, the beautifiers augment salon services from coloring to styling with their distinct artistic flair. Their signature treatment, the Pravana Perfection smoothing blowout, foregoes the harsh chemicals of similar processes for a gentle complex that fights frizz without flattening curls. The salon's nail technician welcomes clients into her separate spa pedicure room, complete with a plush pedicure chair, which, like a vampire on prom night, blends into the surrounding pops of black and scarlet. Patrons who opt to book appointments online earn $1 toward future services or products.
The aestheticians at Mermaid Serving Beauty practice the ancient arts of threading and henna to create elaborate body decorations and groomed brows inside a welcoming studio. Armed with a thin cotton thread, eyebrow artists twist and pull the fibrous string over unwanted strands on eyebrows, upper lips, or full faces to create precise lines and remove large swaths of hair accurately and without the irritation waxing can cause skin. The 5- to 10-minute treatment unseats each hair at the follicle level, removing many strands at a time to give brows a shaped appearance that’s hard to achieve with tweezing. The salon’s in-house henna artists bedeck palms and wrists in intricate designs using henna, which gradually fades over the course of a few weeks for a semipermanent accessory that adds exotic flair to style and a testing ground for a pet ant’s navigational skills.
