For more than a decade, Engy has thoroughly arched clients' eyebrows and removed unwanted facial hair. She conducts each session using organic egyptian cotton balls before ending with an organic rose-water toner. These days, she hones her threading craft in the spacious, high-ceilinged salon of Jayson Zarcone, whose team of stylists enlivens 'dos with cuts, highlights, keratin treatments, and the full line of TIGI haircare products. Elsewhere, the salon's resident aesthetician enriches epidermises with acne facials and anti-aging facials to smooth wrinkles and self-conscious accordions.
Lisa Lewis knows how to work a brush. With the skills of Monet, she paints fingernails in bright hues with artistic touches, which include sparkly flowers, zebra prints, and the coat of every animal that boarded Noah’s ark. She also adds some va va voom to faces with mink eyelash extensions applied to existing fringe one lash at a time.
If Nicole at Jazz Productions Salon & Day Spa has a knack for making guests feel at home, it may be simply because the salon was once a home. She and other stylists work out of carpeted rooms in a converted house, replete with furnishings that make it feel like a family still lives there: couches, golden chandeliers, and a juicer that seemed like it would come in handy. The home decor melds right in with the nail stations, the shelves of nail polish, and especially the leather salon chairs where Nicole delivers her cuts and color treatments.
Licensed cosmetologist Sheri Stevenson knows the importance of total-body beauty, which is why her services include nailcare, hairstyling, and facial waxing. During pedicures, she uses the OPI system to trim, shape, and polish nails and exfoliate hands and feet before moisturizing the skin with massage strokes rather than a fire hose. She also cuts, colors, and styles strands and makes liberal use of warm wax to remove unwanted facial hair.
At Hair By Jamie Marie at Jessi B's Salon & Boutique, Jamie skillfully wields her shears to primp and beautify locks, bringing a deeply ingrained passion for hair to her work. She can perform men's and women's cuts and styles or add pop to manes with all-over color applications. Like that person who changes mannequins' wigs, she also removes hair. Her specialties include brow, lip, and chin waxing.
At Hairology, the friendly staff and experienced stylists are dedicated to putting their clients at ease while slapping a chic style onto their skulls. After an opening act of luxurious shampooing, the stylists at Hairology headline their skills of expert hair cuttery, precisely reflecting the manner their clients dictate, whether they choose to communicate through verbal language, obscure hand gestures, or photographs of their desired 'do frolicking in the wild. With split ends snipped away and filaments trimmed to the desired length, formerly sloppy coifs ultimately transform into haute coiffure under the supervision of the stylist's stylishly styling eyes. Once they've torn down the scaffolding and unveiled the majestic façade of cuticular couture, the stylists offer expert guidance for maintaining headifices, allowing clients to maintain composure and reframe their style in the face of 95 mph straightline winds or the playful tussling of a slightly overenthusiastic in-law.
