Bella Vita Salon's advanced stylists and skilled nail technicians polish up an assortment of hair and nail surfaces in their relaxing, gold-and-sienna-toned downtown oasis. As an Aveda concept salon, all haircuts include a soothing experience using Aveda pure plant essences. Sit back and relax as the scissor-wielding stylist magically transforms deflated pompadours into a validly inflated ego of either gender.
While studying hairdressing in the late 1980s at an Aveda salon, Lisa Vann fell in love with the company's products and global ethics. She decided to further her relationship with the beauty business by helping to develop new Aveda haircare lines and traveling the world to demonstrate the brand's products and techniques to other salon professionals. The owner and acclaimed stylist of Milagros Salon Spa has had her work featured in several publications, including Glamour, Marie Claire, and Essence, and received four consecutive nominations for international hairstylist of the year from the Canadian Mirror Awards.
In keeping with Lisa's Aveda upbringing, Milagros's staff performs each salon and spa treatment with botanically derived Aveda products. Stylists brighten strands and fading area rugs using Aveda Full Spectrum hair color blended from 97% natural ingredients. Body treatments—such as the rosemary-mint wrap and sea-salt polish—and custom facials detoxify and balance skin with plant extracts and hydrating creams.
Mixtzin Beauty and Talent stylists invite men, women, and children into their styling chairs where they shower them with precision cuts and professional products by GK Hair Products, Awapuhi, Pureology, and Schwarzkopf. Working eyeball to eyeball with clients, the team evaluates facial shape and proportion before recommending bold new cuts, natural hair extensions, or color treatments—or merely maintains current styles with trims and touchups.
While your sock collection may be a direct rip-off of the miniature socks that lined your dollhouse's holiday mantle, your hair is a one-of-a-kind player that shines on its own strict terms. The follicle team behind all of Sassoon’s salons will assess your personal style to create a custom look that flatters your face-shape, complexion, and X-Files fandom. Alter previously conceived notions of length with a professional haircut ($80+), or welcome in the summery breeze of a blow-dry with a treatment cut ($95+). For hair that is too much of one color and not enough of another, a thorough color change transforms your visage ($75+).
Mode Organic Salon's multitalented staff transforms visitors into beacons for compliments with its beauty-boosting expertise and arsenal of organic products enriched with natural ingredients. The salon’s hairstylists refresh locks with Kevin Murphy shampoos empowered by vitamins, amino acids, and essential oils such as Immortelle and resurrect graying hairs with coloring products free of commonly used harsh substances, such as ammonia, resorcinol, and lead-based house paint. The facility’s aestheticians keep skin in fine fettle with Éminence Organic Skin Care salves, and unwanted hair is kept at bay with organic waxing.
Mode Organic Salon's commitment to organic practices extends beyond its services: even its complimentary beverages and business practices are eco-friendly. Mode Organic Salon’s strong emphasis on organic standards also helped earn it a spot on Seattle magazine's Best of the Decade list.
For nearly three decades, stylist HoMing has honed his hair artistry across the United States—a track record interrupted only by a stint in London working with the TIGI haircare brand. Now, from within Salon Modello, HoMing spends his days applying those techniques as he transforms men’s and women's manes with foil highlights, perms, smoothing Brazilian blowouts, and fashioning new styles through personalized cuts rather than just grabbing any old kitchen knife.
