Veteran cosmetologist Angie beautifies clients from head to toe. Inside The Upper Cut salon she artfully cuts and styles hair for men, women, and children. In addition to performing coloring and smoothing treatments with products from Redken, Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and Pravana, she removes unwanted fuzz from faces and decorates digits with long-lasting gel polish.
Owner Becky Weir and her handpicked team of stylists harness Redken and Pureology products to power fashion-driven services. During haircuts, shears remove split ends and snip flattering face frames to update styles while guests sip complimentary refreshments. All services refresh skulls with a shampoo and relaxing scalp massage and conclude with a blow-dry and style that pamper tresses like Rapunzel's elevator. Stylists wield Redken color during highlight services and delve deep into cranial underbrush to brighten locks with up to 31 foils or elect tactical surface strands for partial highlights. Patrons settle into sleek, black aprons, trusting their pelts to stylists who expand hairstyling awareness by taking two outside-education classes per year.
At Jessica Mills Hairstylist & Makeup Artist, the name says it all. Expert aesthetician Jessica Mills, formerly of Vintage Image in Lenexa, Kansas, has been working with hair as a professional since 2005. Her specialties include coloring, styling, and cutting hair, shaping brows, applying makeup, and filling out coifs with extensions. When she’s not creating brand-new ‘dos for her clients, she can be found working hair and makeup for weddings, runway events, and films.
Karen Wright uses Nexus products to style all types of hair. She tends to damaged strands with conditioning treatments and adds dimension with streaks of color. Her haircuts are stylish, meticulous, and designed to enhance facial features without the use of neon highlighter pens.
Tara Walker leads her team of stylists by example. Even though she's the owner of Creative Cutz, she still works there full time by sculpting 'dos alongside them. For everything from taming fly-aways to setting up-dos, they use products by brands such as Joico and Deva Curls. They also streak locks with bold new hues from Pravana's ChromaSilk Vivids line. These colors come in 11 different avant-garde shades that range from hot pink and violet to the hue of a blue jay after it swims in red paint.
Drawing upon her clinical background at a skin-treatment facility, Kenlee’s Skin Shop’s eponymous owner tends to wearied dermises with services that include facials, microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and waxing. Before embarking on facial or body treatments, Kenlee reads freckle horoscopes during a custom skin analysis that accounts for dryness and distinguishes dirt from penciled-on mustaches. Rather than trust other beauty purveyors for cosmetics that complement her many skin treatments, Kenlee stocks her studio’s shelves with her own mad-scientist creations. KSS Mineral Makeup boasts nine signature shades and three universal powders to help create a smooth, even complexion free of acne blemishes and glued-on clown noses.
