Surrounded by the cool tones of Salon 141’s icelandic blue walls and chocolate wood-framed mirrors, stylists cultivate face-flattering cuts tailored to the client's lifestyle. Helmed by stylist Suzzanne and manicurist Lisa, each who draw on 18 years of expertise, the team performs Keratin treatments and Brazilian blowouts to straighten frazzled manes, while experienced aestheticians wax away unwanted hair, revitalize visages with custom facials, or foster a UV-free glow with a full-body airbrush tan. Clients can also relax as a certified manicurist spoils nails with mani-padis, Shellac polish, and oral histories of little piggies and their entrepreneurial exploits.
Since the 1960s, family-owned-and-operated Salon de Colores has been sprucing their clientele with refreshing haircuts, styles, and color. The salon’s styling team incorporates Paul Mitchell shampoos and conditioners into its repertoire of hair services, which includes blowouts, ombre color techniques, men’s beard color, and highlights.
Whereas many color products merely lock hair in a coat of shiny chemicals, stylist John Anthony has trained in enough academies to know those chemicals can damage hair over time. That's why he treats his clients with all-organic hair-color products that eschew every trace of ammonia, parabens, and plastics, leaving hair vibrant and free of toxins. With more than 23 years of experience, he leads hand-selected team members who share his philosophy as they administer cuts, Brazilian blowouts, and hair-extension services.
Stylist and master colorist Seth David draws upon nearly 20 years of experience working in television and movie hairstyling, including films such as Vanilla Sky and Minority Report. Customers visiting the Paul Mitchell focus salon can subdue restless hair with a stylized sedative via a Coppola keratin treatment, which heals color-damaged or processed hair by depositing keratin on the cuticle layer of follicles and bandaging its owees. Each treatment reduces blow-drying time and leaves locks shiny for several sequential months, as well as preventing frizz from appearing for up to five months.
Natural light floods through the salon's floor-to-ceiling windows onto cozy leather sofas and lush hardwood floors. Further into the space, hanging plants are situated at individual cutting stations, where owner Peggie and her skilled stylists have been transforming the tresses of downtown Westwood for more than 20 years. Clients can solicit Patti or Tracy for elegant Matrix highlights or defrizz unruly hair with Dawn, who's certified in keratin straightening treatments. The staffers can also nix unflattering fuzz from upper lips, chins, and bionic metal limbs during personal waxing sessions.
The stylists at Studio M Beauty Boutique have two goals: give clients the look they want and ensure they leave with the knowledge and tools to re-create it at home. This dual-mission helps to explain why the team is so methodical during each and every hairstyling session. First, they hold a one-on-one consultation with clients, discussing past experiences and current expectations in detail before executing the first snip. Then, they take care to explain exactly what they're doing and why they're doing it so that clients can pass the written exam that follows each haircut or color treament.
In addition to their hairstyling services, the staff at Studio M Beauty Boutique also pampers hands and feet with spa mani-pedis and can wax away unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body.
