Ilana Koeinov began her career as a cosmetologist and stylist in Israel before moving to America and earning her master-cosmetology license in 2003. At Fashion Looks Hair Design, she stays on the cutting edge of style by attending continuing-education classes; this has kept her vision and artistic instincts sharp, and she parlays these instincts into fresh, creative cuts that she infuses with flourishes of sensuality. Ilana offers everything from cuts, coloring, and Brazilian keratin treatments to makeup, threading, and waxing.
Though her pampering skills once enriched the lives of students at Redken School in New York, these days, master cosmetologist Pat Alessi uses her more than 30 years of experience to upgrade looks at Salon 1580. Along with specialty services in creative coloring, Global Keratin treatments, and rejuvenating organic facials, Pat counts communication as one of her greatest styling assets, taking the time to carefully listen to each of her client's wants and concerns before expertly shaping locks with Redken, L'Oréal, and Rusk products. To keep abreast of the latest trends in European styling and croissant making, she also frequently attends seminars led by industry leaders, melding modern techniques with her own creative flair to create looks that are completely fresh.
Before master cosmetologist Sharon Baker opened The Beauty Bar Salon, she worked as an educator for Premium Nail Concepts where she learned the ins and outs of nailcare. In addition to mani-pedis, which she performs with traditional or gel polish, she specializes in waxing, airbrush tanning, and eyelash extensions. Sharon is always looking to expand her skills through continuing education—in nearly three decades in the industry, she’s earned four licenses and a high-five from each of her instructors.
Unlike many of her peers, Salon Aspire owner and stylist Taylor Andress continued her education in hairstyling long after she finished cosmetology school. As a Paul Mitchell–trained stylist, she's completed specialty classes in razor technique and color application, and holds certifications in keratin smoothing treatments and hair extensions. In fact, she's gathered so much expertise that she's spent time as an instructor, sharing her secrets with future stylists.
Alongside her knowledge and skill, Taylor calls on another secret weapon to forge fashion-forward hairstyles: premium styling products. After years of personal research, she's boiled down her selections to GK Hair, Woody's Men's Grooming, and Pravana ChromaSilk color—a line that, like a nonconformist dalmatian, comes in 101 shades.
