Nati Torrez has been styling hair of all kinds—from military crew cuts to runway-worthy blowouts—for more than five years. Employing a sharp attention to detail and dedication to each customer’s wishes, she administers haircuts, color, and styling services. To keep hair feeling as soft and smooth as a teddy bear dipped in olive oil, she uses Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger keratin treatments. When not correcting scalp malfunctions such as highlights that change color in the sun, Nati keeps brows and sideburns tidy with waxing services. Styles by Nati is located inside Salons by JC, which houses a number of independently owned and operated salons.

Despite the fact that they’ve been around for thousands of years, hairstyles are still reinvented nearly every day thanks to changing tastes and new technologies. Hair by KTR’s stylists uses their abundant training to share these innovations with their clients at the full-service salon. To that end, they render haircuts, shape strands into flattering styles, and perform color applications to splash vivacity onto locks. They can also perform awapuhi treatments or fusion extensions, which are also what most stars ask for in their last years.

In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.

The center’s specialty, however, consists of extending hair: its semipermanent silk and mink lash extensions come in a variety of lengths and curvatures, and technicians ensure a natural look by attaching them hair by hair. Additional services range from slimming body wraps infused with aloe vera and herbs to micro skin needling, an anti-aging treatment that can combat wrinkles, scarring, and signs of playing rugby in a crawlspace.

Since Benjamin Hair & Co. has 10 hair stylists, three nail techs, and an aesthetician on staff, you'd expect the salon to cover a lot of different services, and you wouldn't be disappointed. There are the usual suspects—keratin treatments, Brazilian waxing, specialty facials—and then there are also hard-to-find treatments: staffers slather on acne-busting Meditouch clinical skincare products, apply Hair Dreams or Brijon Hair extensions, and shave eyebrows into miniature mohawks. They also collect hair donations for Locks of Love, a charitable organization that makes wigs for children who have medical conditions that cause hair loss.
