The versatile stylists at Twisted Scissors can edge clients' aesthetic appeal toward either end of the style spectrum: classic or trendy. They sprinkle heads with Johnny B shampoo and pomade when sculpting locks into vintage pompadours, but they can just as easily craft locks into elegant updos. The team evidences its dedication to patrons' hair desires by starting each appointment with a consultation, during which they learn about clients' lifestyles and personal tastes.

Rita Gregory began wearing acrylic nails in 1982 and continued wearing them for six years. Over this time, they caused severe damage to her natural fingernails. She sought advice at nail salons, but the professionals she asked didn't offer a satisfactory solution—they simply recommended covering up the damage with more artificial nails. So Rita began conducting her own research.
Atir Natural Nail Care is the culmination of her studies; it’s not only a nail salon, but a nail clinic, where technicians strive to educate clients about natural nail care and nail health. Drawing from her research, they smooth cuticles, strengthen fingernails, and moisturize hands. Treatments bridge the gap between health and beauty by utilizing natural ingredients such as tea-tree oil and shea butter, and Zoya and essie natural nail lacquers leave a gleaming shine without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.
The trained technicians at Pacific Coast Tans beautify their patrons’ skin with a fleet of faux-sunning equipment, including microvapor airbrushes and Soltron Kiss tanning beds. Pumping an alcohol-free bronzer through the Norvell Sunless Airbrush system, a staff member custom-mists clients with a sunless tan in 20–30 minutes, the same amount of time it takes astronauts to harvest the tanning formula from the sun’s gooey center. Lasting up to two weeks, each application of sprayed-on pigment further spruces skin with a moisturizing coat of aloe vera, Vitamin E, and lutein.
Using only a fine piece of cotton fiber, the aestheticians at Short PumpThreading perform their specialty service, the Eastern art of threading. The filament effectively dethrones strands at the follicular level, though its delicate touch makes it a good fit for those with sensitive skin or users of Retin-A and Accutane. Regular eyebrow-threading sessions encourage new strands to grow wispier over time, resulting in fewer worries over facial maintenance and inevitable disappointment from fuzzy caterpillars in search of their kin. For all-over hair removal, organic waxing services pare down body hair on both women and men.
