Originally hailing from the Dominican Republic, Envy Me Hair Salon owner Clara Anglero is as fluent in African American hair and straightening treatments as she is in the Spanish language. Certified in both Japanese perms and the Brazilian keratin smoothing system, Clara also helps hair relax with hot-oil treatments and deep conditioners, and stylist Sandy doles out corrective color and gives texture to her specialty short cuts. Together, the stylish duo helps hair of all types and lengths look healthier, while also extending a transformative touch to hands and feet with paraffin-rich mani-pedis or nail replacements for acrylics that suddenly quit.
At Awesome Blossom Beauty Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, the stylists beautify clients with advanced coloring and styling techniques. Along with cuts and color, they provide deep-conditioning treatments, braids and extensions, and Awapuhi KeraTriplex damage-repair treatments. They also offer body-contouring wraps, which tighten and tone in a mere 45 minutes—the same amount of time often spent hiding under a desk in an effort to convince coworkers you went to the gym.
The owners and barbers at Real Barber Shop, Pablo Miranda and Juan Mojica, believe that the key to their 15 years of barbershop success has been a good reputation and word-of-mouth advertising. Old-fashioned straight-razor shaves, meticulous attention to detail during haircuts, and plenty of individual attention bring clients back to this classic barbershop.
