At Oasis Day Spa and Salon, Sheila Nami draws on 35 years of experience and two different hair-straightening methods to create runway-ready looks. Brazilian Blowouts loosen curls and subdue frizz with a potent blast of protein that coats each strand. Similarly, the CHI Transformation System smooths tresses without ammonia by running them across ceramic heat, negative ions, and a jazz musician's saxophone. Sheila also sculpts 'dos with haircuts and imbues them with vibrant Matrix hair colors.
Whether her clients are headed to a decisive job interview or a romantic, Maryam Talash knows that a healthy part of their self-confidence comes from their stylish hairdos. With that in mind, she's able to spruce up staid strands with services that range from simple cuts and colors to Brazilian blowouts and extensions. Maryam is well-versed in the styling needs of all types of hair, and strives to make each of her clients feel as pampered as they are respected. Her services unfold at Bella Gente, where bright-white pendant lights shine over the studio's small sea of stylist stations.
One day there will come a time when your consciousness can be uploaded to a computer. Until then, it's important that you maintain your body. That's where the licensed massage therapists at Studio Massage & Skincare come in. In the comfort of a private room, a skilled muscle mender can use light to moderate Swedish strokes to promote relaxation, or ease chronic, lower-layer aches with deep-tissue pressure. Clients may also pair bodywork with indulgent add-ons such as an exfoliating scrub or soothing aromatherapy.
Though she would go on to study at a professional cosmetology school, Paige Ryder learned some of her most important beauty lessons from her mother—a dedicated stylist who helmed a salon of her own. Paige follows in her mother's footsteps in the sleek, bright Euphoria "The" Salon, where she transforms hair with cuts, extensions, and Brazilian blowouts. She also colors hair with Paul Mitchell products and flatters features with skilled makeup applications.
Bree Edgell—the "B.E." in B.E Gorgeous Hair—became a hairstylist for one reason: to make people look and feel beautiful. Although Bree is particularly deft at styling men's hair and performing women's coloring treatments, she's also well-versed in a variety of other styling techniques. She escorts outmoded coiffures into the 21st century by shearing away long tresses for the punk pixie look, or by filling beehive hairdos with remote-control bees.
