Marcus Ornellas Salon's stylists might be better described as sculptors and artists. They reshape hair with scissors and styling products to match the latest trends, infusing 'dos with streaks of color or entirely new hues. They also revamp faces, applying makeup with airbrushes to give patrons the smooth, glossy look normally reserved for models trapped inside the pages of magazines. They accomplish all these feats in a salon as stylish as their work: Sleek, stark black-and-white decor extends all the way to the floorboards, which are stained dark and illuminated by the floor-to-ceiling windows.
At Omega Hair Salon, stress melts away as hair- and skincare specialists pamper visitors from head to toe.

They can also perform a number of coloring and texturizing treatments, thanks to their ongoing education in the latest haircare trends. No matter what the treatment, the staff can describe it in detail in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, or Italian, helping to immediately put guests at ease.

In the studio’s treatment rooms, radio-frequency machines and glycolic acid wait to reduce fine lines and soften the skin texture of faces that have been pressed gleefully against the window of a sandpaper store. LipoSlim devices purr in other areas of the salon, beaming painless lasers at unwanted fat cells.
