At Symetry Hair Design Studio, clients sip complimentary tea and coffee while surfing free WiFi to find examples of the cut they want. “I wanted the salon to be relaxing and inviting, and I think we’ve achieved that,” says owner Marilyn, whose 30 years of industry experience informs her leadership of the studio’s three other stylists, a trio that adds another 35 years of collective experience to the studio. During services, these stylists snip locks into classic styles or dabble in avant-garde ‘dos, employing Goldwell hair color to add blond highlights or tint hair the shade of lime that aliens interpret to mean “do not incinerate.” The studio’s aestheticians also wax away unwanted fuzz, and they brighten nails with OPI polish before formal arm-wrestling contests with the queen.

Brick walls and mirrors bordered with golden frames help create a warm, inviting atmosphere at Ecco Salon, where a team of stylist use their Goldewell- and Unite-approved skills to craft classic and edgy looks. The staff believes that if a hairstyle is to be truly great, it must be easily recreated at home, typically with high-end products sold in the salon as opposed to a series of wigs with the exact same cut. For those more interested in removing hair than styling it, Ecco also offers hair-removal services for areas such as the lip, bikini area, and back. Polishing off new looks, techs buff and trim nails during manicures and pedicures for men or women, ensuring clients look their best from the tips of their toes to the tops of their heads.

Sitting in a red chair in front of a futuristic, diamond-shaped mirror at Blown Away, you might feel as though you're piloting a spaceship. The reality is far less stressful—a stylist is probably trimming your hair or combing it through with products from brands such as Sebastian and Alterna.

Despite the salon's name, the team specializes in far more than blowouts. They also apply highlights, curl hair with perms, and take down frizz with thermal straightening. There are even waxing services for the face and body, as well as mani-pedis with skin-softening paraffin wax.

To further smooth skin, the staff banishes unwanted follicles from bodies with speedy waxing procedures, a more effective procedure than just waiting for it all to fall out. Backs and muscles get their turn with peaceful aromatherapy massages and back exfoliations.
