The skilled stylists at the full-service Haute Society Hair Studio shape new 'dos under the gleaming lights of a chic, modern studio. Stylists revamp locks with a fresh cut and blow-dry, leaving patrons with sleeker, healthier hair and a lighter head for less labored neck movement. Additionally, customers may further their fringe transformations with a coloring service, infusing looks with a new all-over hue. Hair services last an average of 90 minutes, and once they are through, customers can collect their discarded hair to knit into sweaters as keepsakes for friends and family.
A team of master stylists spend their days clipping tresses and adding bold color to strands at Center of Attention Hair Salon, a cozy abode tucked in a strip mall. They meticulously rework clients’ hairdos with shears and bowls of freshly mixed hair dye, helping each customer achieve his or her own style vision.
With many locations throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines.

The salons also offer six varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
Ariadna Sanchez, an aesthetician and a certified NovaLash technician, beautifies complexions and embellishes lash lines in her tranquil, earth-toned boutique studio. Guests seeking to draw attention to their ocular region without having to wink uncontrollably or don a pair of Hubble telescope lenses can rejoice in a full set of NovaLash extensions, which Ariadna applies strand by strand to existing eye fringe. During the 2- to 2.5-hour appointment, she'll customize lash looks to ensure natural, evenly placed eye adornments. Waterproof extensions last up to eight weeks, though Ariadna recommends touchups every two–three weeks. Alternatively, clients can opt for a 45- to 60-minute organic facial, which purges pores of dirt, grease, and loose change in the hope of yielding a cleaner, younger-looking visage.
