Hair 2000 Plus has been helping its clients adopt stylish new looks for more than 12 years. Using top-of-the-line products by Joico, Aquage, and Biomega, licensed stylists streak hair with sun-kissed highlights, relax strands permanently, and even style wigs. Here, experienced technicians also pamper toes with spa pedicures, or wax away hair from eyebrows and upper lips so faces look smoother in their driver's license photo.
When Tiffany Lobdell says she thinks of hair as a canvas, she means it quite literally. Color is one of her specialties, and many of her finished looks borrow hues that would blend right into a painting. She's used the ombre technique to blend turquoise into royal blue, streaked a fauxhawk with yellow and green, and created a highlighted effect with various shades of fuchsia. In that spirit, she also loves accentuating her clients' hair with accessories such as feather extensions and hair bling.
But going bold isn't her only forte. She also works with traditional colors, and uses client consultations to help clients determine which haircuts will work best with their features and personalities. For special occasions, she can do makeup applications and elegant, elaborate updos with the help of singing mice and sparrows.
Redken-trained stylist Jennifer Holden always gives 110%. This means she does more than merely cut her clients' hair??she helps create a one-of-a-kind style tailored to each person's lifestyle and look. This includes giving careful consideration to what's working (or not) with the client's current style and taking into account factors such as how much time the they can give to styling each morning or how often they charter a speedboat to work. Along with cutting and styling, Jennifer also specializes in hair coloring, and has created stunning up-dos for groups preparing for prom, weddings, or fashion shows.
The staffers at Absolutely Chic Day Spa believe in flower power. Their flower-essence treatment, which can be tacked onto any of their other services, begins with a sip of flower-infused water, incorporates plant-based serums, and ends with a piece of dark chocolate that?s also infused with blossoms. The treatment is designed to add an extra dose of calm to the spa?s specialty treatments, which include therapeutic massages, custom facials, acne treatments, and anti-aging skincare?such as bubble baths in which the bubbles are from gum. They also use LED lights to stimulate cell renewal and possibly impart younger-looking skin. And they operate therapeutic cold lasers to soothe inflamed muscles.
Nail technicians spread CND Shellac across tips of fingers and toes, sealing in the coat with a UV light to keep the digits looking sharp for up to two weeks. The modern mani-pedis represent just two of many services that aesthetician Effie Magoulis and the other stylists at Salon Esprit enlist to bring out clients? individual beauty. To this end, they revitalize skin with waxing, acne care, and makeup treatments, or spice up hairdos by weaving in feather extensions rather than most salons? gaudy jet engines. Reflecting the salon's dedication to the utmost care, the staff is trained in top-shelf products such as Hempz and Moroccanoil.
