Jennifer, a skilled stylist who tends to manes within the cozy confines of Calipso's Salon, keeps her tool-chest well-stocked. In addition to the shears, combs, brushes, and blow-dryers used by most of the people in her profession, Jennifer adds luster and eases frizz from locks with Kerastase products and transforms the hue of hair with color products, including roots touch-ups.
From behind Gamma Salon's futuristic, chocolate-hued salon chairs, skilled stylists attend to manes with Kérastase, L'Oréal Professional, Inoa, and Schwarzkopf products. Before the first snip, they consult with clients to determine the best cuts and hues to complement face shapes, lifestyles, and humidity levels inside spacesuits. Additionally, stylists texturize hair with perms, add volume and length with extensions, and soften and unwind curls with relaxer treatments.
Molly Moreno, the beauty expert behind Sublime Skin Therapy, keeps her clients looking their best with facials, waxes, and tanning treatments. She makes use of various chemical peels to tackle acne and signs of aging, and her back facials clear shoulders of blemishes and ingrown dorsal fins. Her organic spray tans give birthday suits an even, summery glow, and by applying eyelash extensions, she is able to add drama and glamor to every wink.
Amid the copper-toned walls and classic Spanish-style architecture of Salon Saavy, stylist Velma Villanueva transforms headscapes with Matrix Biolage products. Patrons pass through rust-colored archways before sinking into Velma's styling chair, where hair artist and client discuss the desired style, coif characteristics, and hair's previous exposure to lightening agents such as bleach or ghost sightings. Scissors shear through manes to slim down bulky layers and trim frayed ends before a conditioning treatment steeps strands in hydrating cream to strengthen and polish. Semi-permanent dye infuses locks with a chosen hue before seamlessly washing out after a few weeks. Alternatively, clients sip on complimentary champagne as Velma weaves highlights throughout manes, showcasing multidimensional head topiary that appears sun-kissed or Midas-touched.
The porch swing and ceramic flower boxes may suggest that Salon Vivace is an attractive home, but a step inside reveals much more. Natural light pours through pearl curtains onto purple walls and wood cabinets filled with high-end styling products. After being greeted with coffee and biscotti, guests are then led to Monica Villescas Smith's leather styling chair, where she draws on more than eight years of experience to craft custom cuts and decorate strands with bold color treatments.
When the body is in pain, it’s difficult to clear the mind of stressful thoughts; but the body can’t fully relax until the mind first achieves inner peace. The therapists at Namaste Healing Arts seek to unravel this conundrum by relieving clients’ pain in a peaceful setting. They do this with an array of treatments, including aromatherapy, which uses scents to quell thoughts about work or overflowing hampers of clothes that now trail you to work. To match inner peace with outer beauty, an on-site shower rinses away any remaining oil, and stylists renovate strands with blowouts.
