As a practitioner of the Aveda arts, Kriza Aveda Salon Spa stocks its shelves, cosmetic counters, and salon stations with natural, botanical serums and salves. To pamper clients, the staff peppers each service with luxurious flair—stylists treat guests to a head, neck, shoulder, and hand massage with every haircut, before touching up makeup for ladies. Between appointments, they’ll even trim up bangs to keep cuts stylish or keep head hair from weaving itself into eyelashes. In addition to applying makeup for brides or for special occasions, makeup artists also consult with clients to teach them how to enhance their features and pick the shades that suit their particular skin tone during lessons. Plant-based facials leave skin radiant, diminish wrinkles, or address acne. In every location, the decor mirrors the commitment to naturalism with a light, airy feel, characterized by mostly white walls and plenty of mirrors and glass.

Bree Edgell—the "B.E." in B.E Gorgeous Hair—became a hairstylist for one reason: to make people look and feel beautiful. Although Bree is particularly deft at styling men's hair and performing women's coloring treatments, she's also well-versed in a variety of other styling techniques. She escorts outmoded coiffures into the 21st century by shearing away long tresses for the punk pixie look, or by filling beehive hairdos with remote-control bees.
