Even when they're not at the salon, Cahra owners Jhonny Davila and Teresa Reed are changing the hair game. The stylists have led seminars at various hair events, including demos of Inoar keratin blowouts. By staying so connected to the industry, they can continue to upgrade their treatments back at Cahra, where they and their team perform customized services such as precision cuts, coloring, extensions, and updos, and provide custom treatments using K?rastase and Bumble and bumble products.
Hair is just one area of the Cahra staff's expertise, however. In the spa, aestheticians cleanse skin with more than a dozen types of treatments, featuring skincare products by G.M. Collin and Caudalie, including glycolic peels and four-layer facials. Massage therapists can dissolve tension with Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage, while nail technicians soothe hands and feet with traditional and spa mani-pedis. Recently, they introduced In the Mood polishes that change hue throughout the day, or whenever the wearer puts their fingers in a glass of milk.
Inside Color and Hair Connection's light, eggshell-hued walls dotted with eastern calligraphy, Brenda A. Vernon calms rebellious follicles with relaxing blowout treatments. During each of four doting sessions, stylists begin whipping hair into shape with a lathering, restorative shampoo and a demand that each follicle do a single pull-up. Then heads heat up under the soft hum of a blow-dryer, where manes shed their moisture and gain a luxurious shine. Finally, hair tamers transform unruly locks into well-mannered coifs, styling elegant 'dos for upcoming dates, evenings on the town, or parties to celebrate a pet's promotion to honorary child.
With 129 years of combined experience in the beauty industry, the staff members at On the Edge Hair Studio really knows what they're doing. Their backgrounds?which include training at Vidal Sassoon in London and a stint as a TIGI ambassador?while varied, ensure each is equally adept at delivering on-trend haircuts, sleek highlights, and elegant bridal up-dos. The aestheticians on staff, meanwhile, are fluent in a variety of spa treatments, cleansing skin with facials, evicting unwanted hair with wax, and appeasing sore muscles with massages, and, if necessary, cupcakes.
Natural light pours through Textures Hair Salon’s large front windows, illuminating polished wood floors and buttery yellow walls. It's amid these cozy accents that owner Patricia Lindsay and her team do their work. Not only do they transform locks with high-end products by KeraCare, Mizani, and Design Essentials, but they also apply clip-in and strand-by-strand fusion weaves, create micro braids, and add highlights so people know which parts of your head are worth reading. Though the salon specializes in ethnic hair, the staff is adept at handling strands of all textures and thickness.

Amid sunny cream-colored walls adorned with the images of classic beauty icons, Venus Salon & Spa’s expert staff cultivates sophisticated hairstyles, radiant skin, and prettifying services using top-shelf beauty products. Seasoned scissors whisperers lure heads of hair to cozy black salon chairs with Redken, J Beverly Hills, and S-Factor products and dole out women’s ($54), men’s ($31), and children’s ($28+) haircuts topped off with a refreshing blow-dry. Style seekers can snag partial highlights ($80) or all-over color ($62) to add hue to a head wardrobe or opt for a relaxer ($85) to soothe curls wound tightly by miniature helicopters.
