The Cutting Edge Salon, owned and operated by a certified Redken Master Specialist, transforms tussled tresses into stylish 'dos. The savvy stylists pamper manes with services that range from cuts and styles to perms and colors. Chop off an obstinate cowlick or say adieu to split ends with a haircut and style ($18+ for children, $21+ for men, $33+ for women), or apply a dazzling look to locks with a coloring service ($63+ for full foils, $43+ for retouch). Like a naked-baby picture, hair is not always welcome everywhere. Remove unwanted hair with a lip waxing ($8) of full-face waxing ($24). The congenial coiffure crafters work with Pureology products, which are created from sulfate-free formulas, sunscreens, and antioxidants, as well as the time-tested Redken line.
Jamie Fleetwood liked working as an esthetician at Art Salon & Spa so much that she bought the beautifying business in 2010. Along with her staff of fellow estheticians, stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists, Fleetwood pampers her clients inside the newly renovated, sun-drenched space. Her aesthetic touch might only be matched by that space’s decor: it’s accented with sleek hardwood floors, verdant plants, and earth tones as warm as a made-for-TV movie about dogs that adopt other dogs. Among these scenic fixtures, the team renders a slate of services in the form of facials, Shellac manicures, therapeutic massages, and highlights.
Owner and stylist Courtney Hunt enjoys the sound of her clients’ voices. That’s because she likes to involve her clients in their transformations by offering a consultation with each visit and welcoming feedback during services. Visitors can opt for a wet or dry haircut and repair damaged strands with a Moroccanoil treatment. Courtney can treat frizzy hair with keratin-smoothing treatments or whisk away unwanted strands with facial waxing, which leaves skin as smooth as Tom Cruise’s glass eye. For home haircare, she provides information and sometimes discounts on products, such as Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi Wild Ginger Luxury.
It’s not every stylist that can select hues that complement clients’ skin tone—but as a color specialist, stylist Stacey Bennett demonstrates this ability daily. The Paul Mitchell School graduate operates within the walls of By Shear Design, where she uses Paul Mitchell products to perform precision cuts and add vibrant dimension with highlights.
