What do you get when a chemistry major with an artistic streak and a restaurant manager team up? You get a salon that creates jaw-droppingly naturalistic hair colors and runs like clockwork. The brains behind the operation are Gary Howse and Manuel Benevich—the founders of Gary Manuel Studio. After joining forces in 1979, the duo quickly started racking up accolades from the likes of Allure, Vogue, Glamour, and Highlights. They’ve also established their own Aveda Institute, where they teach the art of environmentally-friendly hair care and cosmetology to fledgling stylists.
Wildfang Hair Design’s meticulous stylists offer a variety of beautifying hair services. They gladly cut the hair of men, women, and children, and offer color treatments such as partial or full highlights. They also offer perms, hair relaxers, and facial waxing.
Mixtzin Beauty and Talent stylists invite women into their styling chairs, where they shower them with precision cuts and professional products by GK Hair Products. Working eyeball to eyeball with clients, the team evaluates facial shape and proportion before recommending bold new cuts, natural hair extensions, or color treatments. They also specialize in bridal updos and makeup.
Studio Salon stylists Amanda and Miceala work hair magic that doesn't break the bank. All haircuts include a complimentary shampoo and style, and services such as deep-conditioning, glaze, and chlorine treatments are discounted when purchased as part of a package. Relaxers and keratin treatments leave locks shiny and smooth, whereas highlights or ombre color add depth to 'dos. They can also volumize hair with tape-in or microbead extensions and prep guests for important events with special-occasion hair and makeup.
Stylist and cosmetologist Amanda Howards has more in her tool belt than a pair of shears. In addition to creating chic coiffures for her clients, she uses color, relaxers, and extensions to transform locks, and shapes flattering special-occasion 'dos.
