With experience in cosmetology and business management, Octavia McDougle helps aspiring beauticians of all sorts forge new career paths as hairstylists, barbers, cosmetologists, and massage therapists. At Beauty Anatomy Institute of Cosmetology and Wellness, Octavia and her staff guide students in immersive programs that combine preparatory theory with hands-on practical application. Once they've learned the ropes, protégés get to practice services on real-life clients before they earn their licenses and find employment.
Students train on a 4,100-square-foot campus replete with four clinic areas and salon-exclusive products typically found only in premier salons and Walt Whitman’s finely manicured beard. Beauty Anatomy Institute also runs an outreach program to provide disadvantaged teenagers with scholarships, workshops, and grooming services to further boost their self-esteem.
Helmed by a talented cast of nine hairstylists and one nail technician, Shear Excitement Salon cloaks clients in beauty from head to toe. Stylists sling products by Matrix, Chi, and Sexy Hair across strands as they lop off overgrown lengths and add depth and dimension with lustrous color treatments. Meanwhile, in the nail corner, nail tech Lee pampers hands and feet with indulgent manicures, pedicures, and fur-lined sandals, and embellishes digits with colorful OPI polish or no-chip Shellac gel. The styling staff also gussies up features with expert airbrush makeup applications and eyelash extensions, and strips away excess fuzz with waxing treatments for the face and body.
At Omega Hair Salon, stress melts away as hair- and skincare specialists pamper visitors from head to toe. Following thorough consultations, aestheticians create radiant complexions by using organic balms, although they can also incorporate rejuvenating LED light therapy or vitamin C-rich serums. Green products are preferred in salon services, too, during which stylists lend their skilled scissors to chic cuts that flatter each client's style and secret aspirations. 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.
Belle Nature Hair Salon's owner has more than 28 years of salon experience in the United States and Brazil, bridging hemispheres with her knack for style. She and her staff beautify clients with an extensive array of services, including waxing, hairstyling, makeup application, and Brazilian Blowout keratin treatments.
The expert stylists at Babelle Salon & Spa help guests perfect their look. Cuts and color treatments remake hairstyles, trimming away excess locks and dyeing strands to make hair more eye-catching. Nail services make fingers and toes just as fetching, smoothing away jagged edges and adding pops of bright color.
Just as its name promises, Xtension Xpress is dedicated to quickly giving guests longer, fuller locks. After purchasing top-quality hair in-store or turning locks they brought with them, patrons sit back as double-track installation weaves extra strands into hair. The salon's custom extension procedure outfits customers with their extensions as quickly and efficiently as possible, like April Fool's day at the DMV. Other coiffure-boosting services include feather extensions, perms, and trims that clean up 'dos.
