Hair Connection believes that great hair isn't something that should be reserved for special occasions. That's why the stylists at this Aveda salon strive to create cuts that mirror the latest runway trends, but are still simple enough for clients to re-create at home. Each service includes a consultation, which allows the stylist to get an idea of your tastes, hair traits, and how often you use your hat to store gum you aren’t finished with. Using this info, they then create a look that can easily transition from day to night, and may prescribe a strengthening Aveda conditioner to nourish tresses with extra protein or moisture. For those battling a hair texture that's less than ideal, they can also use relaxers, Keratin Complex treatments, or the Brazilian Blowout formula to calm frizz and streamline morning styling routines. Naturally straight strands can take a break from the curling iron with permanent waves or spiral treatments.

More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
