George Braymer has seen a lot of bad hair days in his 25 years on the job. He has made it his mission to eliminate these days from the calendar with the styling services he offers at London Style Design. As a certified master colorist, Braymer can enliven hair with streaks of highlights and complete a coloring book in five minutes or less. To accomplish the former, he relies on professional Redken and Matrix products.
Owner and licensed cosmetologist Linda Darling helms a team of licensed professionals who enhance natural beauty and well-being with salon and spa services.

Dedicated to unleashing the individual style of each of her patrons, stylist LaTesha Towers conducts in-depth pre-appointment consultations with her clients at her styling station amid the renovated coffee-hued walls and shining wood floors of Mira Salon. As members of a Redken salon, she and other stylists use the professional haircare lines and ongoing education to create top-tier looks. Once guests decide on a suitable style or color, they sip on complimentary wine, coffee, or other refreshing libation as LaTesha gets to work bringing out the beauty potential of their locks. On any given day, she can be found gilding hair in flattering highlights, restoring moisture with deep-conditioning treatments, and keeping clients abreast of hair trends such as feather extensions and whatever Madonna’s hair looks like that week.
Inside this Redken Ambassador salon, a team of beauty pros await to renovate appearances backed by 30 years of industry experience. Prismatic hues from Redken's Chromatics line add light-catching dimension to tresses without ammonia, while those looking for color, length, or volume sans commitment can opt for single strands or straight or wavy wefts from LOX extensions. Special occasion services include elegant updos or makeovers with custom-blended makeup by Motives, and are also available on-location to accommodate busy bridal parties or those still awaiting parole.
Backed by their exclusive line of rejuvenating skincare products, the certified medical aestheticians at Bella Kara Skin Care can handle any skin concerns thrown their way. Relaxing spa rooms come stocked with the company’s personal line of eye creams, toners, and exfoliators, giving aestheticians the tools they need to fade signs of aging and erase blackheads. The techs combine their products with microcurrent-wave technology and LED-light therapy. They also enhance eyes with makeup and by individually applying NovaLash extensions or noodles to existing lashes.
Tucked inside the Forum Building, Avantè Hair & Day Spa’s six-person staff tends to clients with a diverse roster of salon and beauty services. Specialties include hair, feather, and tinsel extensions, color and texture services, and Redken conditioning treatments.
