Unlike stylists who do only hair, nine-year beauty veteran Amanda Bluestein coaxes out clients’ beauty from many angles. Trained in cosmetology and drawing on years of hands-on expertise at Elayna’s and Tuscan Sky Salon, Amanda can resculpt tresses one minute and get skin glowing with a Norvell custom spray tan the next. She holds a special affinity for dolling up brides and ladies prepping for other special occasions. The precision updos and makeup involved require a steady hand and a keen eye, and Amanda excels at using all three.
Mes Bon Amis Salon with Jen Grillo offers aesthetic treatments focused on two areas: hair and nails. Jen can apply vivid Gelish to nails during mani-pedis or flex her styling muscles with updos, textured cuts, and services for curly hair. She also animates a deep passion for color in her hair work, which she’s perfected over the course of eight years as a professional. During that time, she’s also taken classes on cutting, color techniques, and updos, sharpening her skills in the same way movie villains hone their skills through moustache-twirling classes.
Sarah Knol crafts keratinized sculptures for women, men, and children with inspiration stemming from the natural beauty of mountainous terrain, classic styles, and a bohemian twist developed during her countrywide travels. After a quick wash, Sarah's sure-handed shears trim and style hair to customer specifications. A blow-dry session then bestows hair with voluminous body only achievable with Bella Capelli's signature high-speed wind tunnel. During this time, a deep-conditioning treatment wields the might of a L'Oreal power dose sealant—a product designed to target the mane's cuticles, leaving strands buffed to a lustrous shine normally reserved for mint-condition coins and chrome-dipped wigs.
Bella capelli is an Italian phrase that means beautiful hair. It's fitting, then, that amidst the salon's warm accents, skilled stylist Lindsey Pyatt blends classic and modern techniques to spruce up strands. She can revamp manes with a stylish new cut or simply trim bangs, add bold color or subtle highlights, invigorate hair with a deep-conditioning treatment, or smooth strands for weeks with keratin treatments.
Joy Shippey brings a decade of experience to the salon chair. Her haircuts and coloring services complement clients’ face shape, skin tone, and nail polish hue. Her haircare products of choice include Aquage, Kenra, KMS, and Sebastian.
Part of the Bumble and bumble salon network, Ta-Da’ Salon has been styling visitors and teaching professional stylists for more than 30 years. Owner Kurt Busch designed his beauty oasis to evoke the feel of a salon in downtown New York City, and his team of stylists boasts a wealth of specialties. Some specialize in cutting curly hair, while others focus on coloring broccoli florets. Haircare isn’t the only item on the treatment menu, however; aestheticians administer facials and waxing, and nail technicians tend to hands and feet in a private pedicure room.
