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.
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.
Brittany Rose Brard draws on eight years of experience when she cuts, colors, and styles hair at Bella Gente. She specializes in all techniques of hair coloring—from ombre highlights to single-process color—as well as smoothing keratin treatments, which help make manes more manageable. Her favorite part of her job, however, is snipping strands and sweeping them back into classic updos for special occasions.
Changes—it's right there in the salon name. At Changes Salon and Spa, Natalie Chanel encourages clients to embrace change with bold, playful styles that can boost a flat style come the new season, an elegant event, or when inviting Mars into your fifth house. As a stylist who frequently works in fashion photography, runway styling, and film, Natalie doesn't shy away from creating edgy, fashion-forward looks, which might include asymmetric cuts or streaks of bright colors. She can also work with traditional styles, of course, à la a classic bob or pretty blond highlights, and can add length and volume with extensions or prepare clients for special occasions with intricately braided updos.
Earthly Body's collection of natural, vegan, and paraben-free skincare and bodycare products has caught the eye of an array of media outlets, such as Allure and Lucky magazines, with its hydrating hemp-oil bases and cruelty-free lineup. Candles melt into a candle pot with wax that can also be used as a warm massage oil, postcleansing moisturizer, or elbow cream for dry pet elephants. Earthly Body’s haircare line, Marrakesh, infuses each tendril-smoothing solution with Moroccan argan oil and three signature scents (original, High Tide, and Dreamsicle) to bolster frizz-free manes. Mineral-based makeups dust across facescapes without the harsh chemicals or pore-clogging guilt found in animal-tested products.
