The expert stylists at Advanced Hair Designs wield their scissors confidently, snipping away split ends and revealing a trendy pixie cut or long, flowing layers.

As co-owners of Trend Studios Orlando, Matthew Bengston and Anthony Cortes have cultivated a business that reflects their own areas of expertise. Matthew brings his skills as a stylist to the hair salon, where he and his team cut men’s and women’s hair, add highlights, and lengthen locks with extensions. For his part, Anthony draws on his talents as a teeth-whitening and airbrush-tanning specialist to oversee those branches of the studio. Both Matthew and Anthony go out of their way to ensure a comfortable experience for clients: Anthony’s airbrush tans, for example, employ an Evolv. Sidekick tanning system that warms up its tanning solution before gently misting skin. For the spa services in which they do not specialize, Matthew and Anthony employ a knowledgeable staff that performs massages, waxing treatments, and a cappella renditions of the spa’s relaxing soundtrack.

Decorated with framed playbills and mirrors surrounded by bright lights, Box Office Hair resembles a celebrity’s dressing room where guests feel like they’re the stars of the show. The salon’s beauticians, who boast skills that range from stylist to master consultant, reimagine hairdos with basic cuts and coloring as well as treatments that yield more-dramatic effects, such as spiral perms and block coloring with three different hues. Brazilian keratin treatments tame wild, frizzy strands for a camera-ready finish, and extensions let short hair act the part of a longer, thicker mane, which gives clients an acceptable excuse to intimidate zebras at the zoo.
