Los Angeles. London. Hong Kong. This may sound like a globetrotter's dream itinerary, but it's really a list of locations where hairstylist Ivy Dobbs trained. In addition to gaining experience in the world?s style capitals, she also studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy?a network of schools that imbues practical, everyday beauty techniques with international sophistication. Now more than a decade into her career, Ivy owns Euphoria Salon. At stations back-dropped by exposed brick, her stylists renovate 'dos, quenching dry ends with Moroccanoil's omega-3 oils and antioxidants or granting a gift of frizz-free months with Brazilian Blowout's straightening system.
Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy?s salons, where skilled students snip away, continue a four-decades-old hair-taming legacy that began at a single salon in London. The academy sorts stylists by specialty, allowing them to focus on the latest trends and techniques in their respective fields and preventing quick-draw blow-dryer shootouts. Hair artisans snip hair into the proper shape before adding a wash and style according to client preferences uncovered during a complimentary consultation. Specialists apply full-coloring treatments, adding nonnative tints.
Men's and women's haircuts. Ombre highlights. Updos. Hair extensions. These are just a handful of the services The Cut Salon provides to its clients. While the offerings pamper their patrons, it's perhaps the neighborhood vibe that keeps them returning to the beauty emporium. Owner Mary established The Cut Salon with a team of stylists that help each client feel welcome, whether they're straightening locks with a Brazilian blowout or cutting an extra pair of bangs to keep the original pair of bangs company.
GlamMe Beauty Studio?s team travel to homes, places of work, and dentists? offices to pamper clients. They also work at 11 salons in LA and surrounding areas. Stylists cut hair, magically grow hair with extensions, and embellish strands with semipermanent color and highlights. They also beautify nails during mani-pedis, wax away fuzz on faces, and add drama to peepers with eyelash extensions.
Located inside the waterfront Marina City Club?between the Ritz-Carlton and FantaSea Yachts?Bella Mar Salon beautifies clients with a full array of haircare services. Stylists cut and color locks, and soothe scalps with deep conditioning and whispered words of encouragement. The staff also cares for nails with manicures, pedicures, and full sets of acrylics.
