Appointments start with complimentary consultations, wherein patrons dish on their favorite looks and show stylists their 10 favorite hairs. Then, hair pros draw on Redken, Wella, and Coppola products for a variety of services, from painting on highlights to trimming split ends. A final style ensures clients walk out ready to pose for sidewalk photo shoots or star in traffic-cam footage for the five o'clock news.

At the manicure tables, nail technicians use gel polish and overlays to support long-lasting manicures that can be ornamented with rhinestones and airbrushed nail art.
