Because of her distaste for the pretentious atmosphere that some salons have, owner Sarah Reichman vowed to create a down-to-earth styling experience inside her salon, Head Over Heels. Seven years later, Reichman has solicited the hair expertise of stylists, such as Cynthia, to tailor face-flattering styles in relaxing, unpretentious company. Clients may also retreat to one of the salon's private rooms for a moisturizing facial, a relaxing mani-pedi, or to practice their rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody" for karaoke night.
As a barber, Jacob Holly's first priority is sending each of his clients out the door looking even better than they did when they walked in. Beyond that, he hopes to give his clients a place to escape their daily worries while he takes their looks to the next level. At Running With Scissors, he performs all the old-school barber standards, including shoeshines, beard grooming, and "My Wild Irish Rose." He also offers hair services for women, including cuts, color, and blowouts.
Reflections owner Afrouz has been practicing the Middle Eastern hair removal technique known as threading since she was a little girl in Iran. During threading sessions, an aesthetician uses a strand of cotton to twist and pull out individual hairs by the root. Afrouz also completed a formal two-year course on the technique and an 8-month course devoted to eyebrow arching. In addition to threading, Reflections also offers permanent make-up application.

Jessica Soltero, a six-year veteran in the hair industry, honed her skills at Paul Mitchell cosmetology school.

Judging by their titles, Loanne the manicurist, Veronica the colorist, Donato the barber, and America the stylist could be the members of a salon-themed rock band. Instead, they're the staff at the heart of Blue Moon Salon, a boutique beauty shop.
