  • Amadora Salon
    Founding Amadora Salon was a dream come true for Shannon Grays. After lending her skills to other beauty parlors, Shannon decided she needed to express herself with more than just a pair of scissors and a comb. She created the Paul Mitchell concept salon as a pure expression of her spirit and character, carefully selecting everything from the colors to the fabrics. She applied this same devotion to choosing a staff, handpicking a team of stylists and aestheticians that share her passions for cosmetic care and maritime law. The team works together to address a variety of skin and hair concerns, offering basic trims and coloring treatments that keep locks stylish, as well as glycolic peels that leave cheekbones bright and radiant. To complement the arsenal of products on its shelves, Amadora Salon also stocks the skincare-balm and makeup lines that Shannon designed. Brown-sugar body scrubs gently exfoliate skin without drying it out the way salt scrubs or napping in a pile of sawdust can. Shoppers can also browse natural-makeup products containing hypoallergenic mineral pigments and freeze-dried vitamins.

  • Platinum Lounge
    When stylist Leslie Vasquez first opened Platinum Lounge back in 1999, she beautified the coifs of her growing clientele with only a short list of basic hair services. After the salon's 2004 relocation to its current space in Santa Cruz, Leslie expanded its staff and menu of services to run the pulchritudinous gamut from nailcare to makeup applications, waxing, and UV-free tanning. Now wielding 25 years of experience in her field, Vasquez leads experienced stylists as they re-invent coifs with her specialty hair extensions, all-natural Rene Futerer hair color, and smoothing keratin treatments. Manicures and pedicures pamper fingers and toes, and aestheticians customize hair-removal to each client's skin type with a choice of eight different wax formulas.

  • Seaweed Hair Design
    Seaweed Hair Design relies on the passion and talents of its stylists to consistently coax forth brilliant, personalized cuts, colors, and waxings for lads and ladies. Each hair service begins with a consultation, during which scalp sculptors and clients discuss ideas, photographs, and sonnets describing the desired cut or color. Snipping services encompass anything from buzz cuts to boho shags, available for both adults ($25–$50) and children ($20). A shampoo and blowout styling lends heads a dynamic aura ($35+), and a waxing for brows ($20) or lips and chin ($12) instills a minimal sleekness. Those looking to accent or revive the chocolate-brown, shimmering blond, or vibrant red hues of their coiffure can use this Groupon toward coloring treatments such as touchups ($60+) and color-sweetening glaze ($60+).

  • Tess at Stranded Beauty Bar
    When guests walk into Stranded Beauty Bar, a receptionist greets them with chilled soda or hot-off-the-presses coffee and tea. They can sip on their drink during appointments with Tess, a stylist trained at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London, UK who creates new hairstyles that complement face shapes and the current moon phase. She also expertly applies natural-looking highlights, or steps outside the box with streaks of cobalt blue or hot pink.

  • Sheenix Salon
    Sheenix Salon’s expert stylists wield graceful power over shears to shepherd manes ($50–$65) into inventive, flattering follicle formations. Your tress transformation will begin with a consultation, during which your scissor-clad companion will carefully investigate the current length and location of your hair cells and then dream up a new look that fits your face, personality, and every neural transmitter in between. A soothing shampoo relaxes hair prior to the cutting action, ensuring that you don't sprout stress-induced frizzies mid-styling. By the time you leave the salon, your head will feel slim, trim, and 100% more fashionable than a helmet full of salad.
