A lot can be learned in a decade. Many of Les Ciseaux's stylists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists have been with the salon for more than 10 years. They've traveled to Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles to broaden their skills and perfect new techniques, and collectively they speak 10 languages. As they work, they tend to clients' locks, nails, and pores with Les Ciseaux products, which are botanically enriched, cruelty-free, and stored in genie-approved bottles.
Suna of Suna Salon & Spa has culled beauty secrets from all over the world, holding aesthetic licenses in Japan, Italy, France, Germany, and the United States. She voyaged from the shores of Istanbul to the wild, unexfoliated beaches of America 25 years ago to establish her first salon. Over the decades, Suna has gathered around her an elite team of beauticians with a range of expertise and an arsenal of quality products.
Her staff brightens nail treatments with Shellac and OPI polishes and deepens massages with hot stones. Stylists keep cranial shrubs in tiptop shape with Schwarzkopf Igora hair color and conditioning products from Moroccanoil. Suna herself specializes in threading, the ancient Middle Eastern art of removing hair with nothing but a strand of cotton and an elaborate system of cantilevers.
