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.
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.
Eight years ago, stylist Patrice Linan started her hairstyling career on the right foot by training at such recognized institutions as Sassoon, Vivao, and Bumble and bumble. Today, she has settled into the role of color educator for Goldwell, sharing her knowledge of the very techniques with which she beautifies her clientele at the exclusively Bumble and bumble Salon 77 West.
As a color specialist and master stylist, there's very little that Renee Aminyar can't do. Need a style change? She creates sleek new looks with trims, mohawks, and clipper fades. Want more color? The stylist can add sun-kissed highlights or bold streaks of red or purple. Renee also assembles hair into formal updos for prom or weddings, and adds instant length with hair extensions.
Cut and Beyond is a full-service hair salon with a laid-back vibe. Friendly licensed stylists guide clients into leather styling chairs for face-flattering new cuts or to apply vivid highlights. They can also render updos for special occasions such as a wedding or prom?even if you're going to your prom and wedding on the same day. With thermal straightening and professional makeup applications also on the list of services, the cheerful green-painted salon leaves no stone unturned vis-a-vis beauty.
After achieving top industry honors and styling hair and makeup for the cover of Rolling Stone, an A-list stylist lured other industry greats to open BlowoutBar. As guests sip flutes or piccolos of champagne, stylists coif manes at low-profile stations illuminated by natural light. The cheerful red brick building houses private treatment rooms for facial services, a hair-washing station overseen by crystal light fixtures, and shelves packed with bright bottles of product. Stylists grab Bumble and bumble shampoos, conditioners, and styling salves to pamper strands during volume-enhancing blowouts and on-trend clips. Two aestheticians round out the team of beautifiers, offering waxing services and facials with deluxe Darphin products from France.
