The colors within the interior of Designer Cuts are bold and inspiring: flame orange paired with mustard yellow and stark blacks and whites. But the decor pales in comparison to the radiant colors on the heads of those leaving the salon with a new do. The stylists offer a wide variety of services, ranging from hair-coloring services, cuts, and styling to eyelash extensions and brow sculpting.
The aestheticians at Urs Threading have mastered the art of eyebrow threading—an ancient technique of removing unwanted brow fuzz. Using fine pieces of thread, they can carefully control the hair they remove in a way that's more natural, and generally less painful, than waxing.
At Trendy Nails, pink curtains cascade between plush pedicure thrones, lending clients a bit of personal space as nail technicians fuss about their feet with masks and files. Warm footbaths kick off the treatments. Technicians attend to fingers and toes with laser-like focus as they shape the nails, treat the cuticles, massage knots from hands and feet, and dress digits with striking polish.
Flanked by bright-red walls, stylist Jillian Marker trims and transforms hair, adds depth with color, or infuses dry locks with hydration. Alongside Jillian, the savvy styling staff at Vanity Chair Beauty Salon inspires outer beauty with a gamut of salon and facial services. Aesthetician Alexie Rae Francisco-Siu tends to skin surfaces with facials that brighten tones and correct imperfections. Amid the soothing sage colors of the spa room, a waxing wrangler can lift away unwanted hair, shape brows, or remove improperly placed googly eyes.
At Cutting Loose Hair Studio, seasoned stylists furbish locks with flattering haircuts, bold colors, and products from brands such as Paul Mitchell and Sexy Hair. Each cut begins with a consultation, in which the stylist tailors a look to suit the client’s facial features, hair type, and bearskin-rug collection; during the hair-scattering session, stylists even demonstrate how to re-create the new style at home. Trained by Redken’s color educators, the hairdressers can also help clients select new hues to subdue grays and accentuate each lock's loveliest thoughts. All-over color swathes the entire mane in a bold new shade, and partial highlights illuminate the strands with the highest SAT scores.
