Working out of Salon De Marcus, Suhad uses the haircare stash to add dimension to clients' locks with highlights or all-over hues.

Jaqueline F. Tum doesn't give makeovers. Instead, she consults with each client, then subtly enhances their most flattering features. These changes tend to be small and focused?a half-set of eyelash extensions, for example?but because they call attention to one's natural beauty, they often result in a dramatic increase in confidence.
Jacqueline's services span waxing, hairstyling, and airbrush makeup. She combines these offerings into bridal packages as well, prepping brides-to-be, bridesmaids, and even flower girls to walk down the aisle without stopping en route to self-trim their bangs. Her eyelash extension services, meanwhile, are meticulous and customized. She applies each extension to the individual lash, creating looks from the natural "Belle" to the glamorous "Majestic."
David Feiling became a massage therapist in 1996, and began his career working with clients at salons and spas. There, he developed an appreciation for the mental peace that beauty treatments could provide, especially when paired with the physical relaxation of a massage. So, he earned his cosmetology license, and decided to combine both practices under one roof. He offers four different massage modalities, including deep tissue and shiatsu, with add-ons such as thermal heat or a deep scalp treatment available with each service. He also provides skincare and hairstyling services, helping newly relaxed clients look as a good as they feel. And to treat the mind directly, he uses hypnosis to help clients with stress, compulsive behaviors, and phobias of swinging pocket watches.
Soft light pours into French Twist Salon, where brown pebbled-leather chairs, gilded mirrors, and exposed pipes lend an old-timey feel. But while the decor harks back to another era, the treatments and cache of hair products remain decidedly current. Owner Carole guides her team of stylists as they steal away frizz with Brazilian blowouts and glossing treatments or add color and dimension with highlights. Elsewhere in the salon, stylists perform waxing services and enhance features with makeup applications or three different kinds of eyelash extensions—day, night, or 24 hours of daylight. Carole doubles as a seasoned manicurist who delivers long-lasting shine with Shellac gel polish.
Given Salon Sol's name, the space is fittingly illuminated with natural light from from large front windows. A warm shade of yellow also covers the salon's walls and cabinetry. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists renovate tresses with hair treatments aided by products from Bosley, Pureology, Enjoy, American Crew, and Moroccanoil. The salon also offers invigorating facials, which penetrate deep into pores to rid the skin of dirt and grime, along with waxing and threading. In addition, Salon Sol pampers guests with mani-pedis, each of which come with a complimentary reflexology treatment.
Lizzie Moffit and her fellow hairstylists at Primp Beauty Boutique skillfully apply products from Enjoy Hair Care and Eufora to sculpt coiffures into bold new styles. As stylists cut hair and attach extensions, an aesthetician elsewhere in the boutique refreshes pores with Dermalogica facials. Technicians layer bodies with natural-looking airbrush tans, using SPF 15 alcohol-free products to protect against the sun without getting your arms drunk. The salon also features a boutique stocked with clothing, jewelry, and accessories.
