Annie O'Connor knows a thing or two about vanquishing frizz and unruly curls. The Liscio-certified stylist has been straightening manes every week for the last six years?it?s her main service?and even guarantees each appointment.
But her skill set doesn?t stop there.

In addition, she helps brides prepare for their big day with chic updos, photo-worthy makeup, and reassuring pats on the head.
Janine brings her deft scissor work and artistic eye to Sola Salon Studios. The chic space mirrors the savvy work done by Janine and her colleagues. They offer not only haircuts and coloring treatments but a slate of specialized services that are done with craftsmanship and precision. Licensed aestheticians channel the same precision and eye for style when installing eyelash extensions, which gel seamlessly with the face and add some extra oomph that can entrance colleagues and maybe extinguish a few tea lights.
Half salon and spa, half fashion boutique, Pure Beauty Salon has every facet of beauty covered. Stylists make over manes using popular product lines such as Joico, Moroccanoil, and color by Wella, leaving heads looking chic and ready to reward themselves with one of the shop's colorful or animal print scarves. Guests can inquire about colored hair extensions to match the hue from just-purchased earrings or pick out a new handbag to coordinate fingertips coated in OPI polish or CND shellac. Between shopping and stints in the styling chair, guests can also get eyelash extensions from the eyelash specialist or seek out the salon's skincare sage and master aesthetician, Valerie, who keeps skin looking soft and smooth with facials and waxing services for the full body.
