The color pink dominates Gemz Salon, from the walls and furniture to a glamour girl runway that invites visitors to strut down the catwalk and show off their new looks. The spot's fuchsia interior appeals to both children and adults, as does its menu of prettifying services. Rockstar and glitter toe treatments glamorize feet after aestheticians sprinkle glitter onto a gel base, creating an eye-catching look and reflecting sunlight to scare off wayward cave lizards. Shellac manicures preserve the refined states of fingernails with nail-strengthening shades that remain chip-free for up to two weeks.
In addition to nail care, the staff performs an array of salon services. Gemz Salon's stylists clip hair into chic silhouettes and accessorize strands with feather extensions to make them more appealing to pet parakeets. Organic spray tans leave skin both gilded and firmer as a result of green-tea leaves and coffee-seed extracts, and waxing services rid follicles of unwanted hair.
Creations Salon owner Lynnell Darby leads a staff of experienced stylists in cutting, coloring, and coiffing tresses with acclaimed salon products that include Paul Mitchell and Pureology. Clients kick back and savor a complimentary beverage as their hair basks in deep hydration alongside skin-flattering color or dimension-boosting highlights before the strand sculpting begins. Unlike the copycat styles and unyielding salad bowls used in a typical salon, Creations' stylists approach each head of tresses as a unique canvas, taking both fashion trends and individual face shape into account to forge a one-of-a-kind style.
Thanks to a team of versatile stylists, it’s not uncommon for Salon Karisma’s haircuts and treatments to end with strikingly different results—one woman may leave with a playful, modern bob, while another may strut out the salon’s door with streaks of highlights that catch sunlight as she walks. Though diverse, many of these cuts and styles begin with a sudsy shampoo and a consultation that gets clients involved in the creative process.When determining the right cut or color for you, stylists carefully consider aspects such as your facial features and personal style. If the occasion calls for it, they can add curl with perms, length with hair extensions, and volume with stereo barrettes. Their concern for style doesn’t stop at the scalp; the salon’s ear-piercing services give clients the option to adorn their lobes with sparkling studs or flashbulbs with which to stun celebrities before kidnapping them and assuming their identity.
Sixteen years in the hair industry means a lot of scissor time, bowls of hair dye, and pin curls. That is Sonia Padilla’s world. As a master stylist and color specialist who keeps up with current techniques, she transforms clients’ hair into chic styles and executes trends from simple bobs to vibrant red coifs and blunt bangs. Her keratin treatments leave hair soft, shiny, and smooth, and her updos prepare clients for proms and half-birthday parties.
