At Red Salon Art, stylists beautify clients with everything from routine haircuts and maintenance to bold new looks with natural extensions and all-over color. They bend strands to their will, revitalizing hair with partial highlights, or instill a smooth, glossy sheen with Brazilian blowouts. During nourishing keratin and conditioning treatments, top-shelf products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Keratease keep hair healthy by employing vital nutrients, antioxidants, and dark instead of milk chocolate.
Since 1985, the skilled cast of stylists at Hair To Dye For has revamped styles with precision cuts and color treatments. Shabby, overgrown locks hit the salon’s floor as stylists carefully shear strands and remove powdered wigs left over from courtroom stints in England. The crew adds a bit of flair to ho-hum tresses with two-toned ombre color treatments, highlights, and full-color transformations. They iron-out unwanted curls and kinks or add bounce with spiral perms. The salon also gussies up digits with shellac manicures and pedicures and acrylic sets.
The team at Frumoasa Salon & Spa is small and focused. Four stylists, a massage therapist, and an aesthetician work together toward a single mission: to relax and beautify clients. To achieve this end, they treat everyone who walks into their spacious, chandelier-lit salon as an individual. Before hair stylists perform designer cuts, apply color, or texturize hair, they consult with clients, studying their facial shape and coloring. Similarly, these types of thorough consultations also precede other beauty treatments including waxing, aromatherapy massage, and c-estes facials. During treatments, the team pulls from a toolbox stocked with professional-grade product lines, including Eufora Hero, Keratin Complex, and Colure.
Lioness Spa & Lashes is a place where people can update their look. Whether that’s through 3D nail art, eyelash extensions, or ear piercing is up to the individual client. Along with these services, the spa provides acrylic nails, spa pedicures, facials, and peels. They also offer microdermabrasions that can turn back time on faces, leaving them bright and youthful like a phosphorescent newborn.
The “ME” in Skin by ME’s name is an acronym for the first names of owners Michelle Chavez and Elisha Basquez. But free consultations, client education, and lavish skincare treatments hint at a second meaning—you, the client. Michelle and Elisha, licensed aestheticians, aim to improve the epidermal health of their guests as well as educate and pamper them. They use Dermalogica and DermaQuest products during treatments such as the signature ME facial, a one-hour regimen that includes a double cleanse and mask and ends with a neck-and-shoulder massage. Michelle and Elisha send clients off with more than just radiant faces; the aestheticians conclude their free consultations with written results of the skin analyses, and they cap off treatments with at-home care tips, product recommendations, and advice on how to wash your face with your mind.
At Dollhouse Salon, owner Tia Williams and her team transform looks with innovative, custom treatments. In addition to adding peekaboo or ombre highlights and smoothing out frizz with texturizing services, the stylists lengthen locks by sewing or clipping in Micro Links, fusion, or So.Cap. hair extensions. Despite the recall of platinum-dipped hair gel, staffers can add eye-popping elements to scalps in the form of hair bling or feathers.
For the last 7 years, Shelby has been using scissors and dyes to create eye-popping hairstyles for her many loyal clients. She currently owns and operates Stylist 916 inside of Sola Studios, where she continues to magnify clients’ beauty with services that range from haircuts and highlights to airbrush tanning and makeup application. As a one-woman-show, Shelby enjoys the perks of working in a private studio and giving her undivided attention to one client at a time. Her guests can relax without being bothered by noisy chatter, crying babies, or a chorus of blow dryers. They can also bring music to play in the studio, watch their choice of programming on the flat screen TV, or recite excerpts from their diary knowing that only one other person can hear.
