Licensed cosmetologist Tess Secor-Cantrell loves making people feel beautiful. At her newly opened studio inside Vivaldi Salon Suites, she offers hair, skincare, and waxing services, while specializing in age-defying organic skincare and holistic treatments. Clients can also get formal updos twisted in place, have a site-specific body wrap designed to tighten and tone skin, or relax during a chair Reiki session before having a holistic nutritional consultation.
Some hair can go months without needing a cut, while other 'dos can barely last days. High Effects accommodates those latter locks with its BlownAway package, sessions of shampooing, conditioning, and customized blow-drying held once a week for one month. Adept with any type of men’s, women’s, and children’s hair, High Effects’ stylists can update looks with everything from simple bang trims to intricate bridal updos. For coloring services, they rely on Aveda products, whose sunflower, castor, and jojoba oils help maintain each strand's hue, condition, and shine.
20 years have taken master stylist Mida from Paris to Glendale, and she can tell you about it in English, French, or Vietnamese. The shearsmith taps into her Parisian education and her experience managing a bridal boutique in California to beautify each client. Her services run the gamut from basic bang cuts to designer haircuts, weaves, and Japanese thermal straightening. To render those services, Mida calls upon products such as Biomega, Pureology, Enjoy, Aquage, and Matrix. She also uses human hair extension to add length, volume, color, or all of the above for as long as one elephant burp?roughly six weeks. Her salon matches the elegance of outgoing clients with its light orange and cream swirled paint, sheer curtains, and an ornate analog clock.
The Final Cut Hair Studio owner and stylist Rachel lets the love of her craft propel her through cosmetology school, graduating ahead of schedule. Now, she puts both her passion and skills to work, creating chic coifs and color treatments, and including a hand massage and style with each session.
Between UV rays, humidity, and dry winter weather, hair takes a real beating. That's where KOR Beauty Academy comes in.

Tre Bella Boutique's savvy stylists help clients attain sleek tresses with a formaldehyde-free Brazilian blowout, plus a cut and style. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, a 90-minute Brazilian blowout coats each hair shaft in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. Tre Bella's stylists will then blow-dry and flat-iron your locks, reproteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again. The scalp's new, smooth, and lovely radiance lasts up to 12 weeks and can be washed and dried without dulling damage. Best of all, you can cut down your normal blow-dry time and use less hair product to achieve a stellar, shiny set of strands.
