Growing up in Honduras, Cecilia dreamed of becoming a stylist. She arrived in the United States and quickly got to work accomplishing her goal. After graduating from school as a professional stylist, she went even further and opened her own salon. Now, Cecilia works with her sister and other beauty pros at Cecy’s Hair Salon. They specialize in hair-coloring services, keratin treatments, and extensions. Other offerings include mani-pedis and makeup applications for weddings and wedding-themed pool parties.
"All women are beautiful," says Amis Saab, owner of Amaci Salon. His goal is to enhance this natural beauty with treatments designed to make hair shine and skin glow. Drawing on professional salon products from Aquage, Pureology, and Redken, Saab and his talented staff of stylists correct split ends and add new dimension to ‘dos with designer cuts and vibrant highlights. Alternatively, waxing and threading services remove hair that has overstayed its welcome on the face and body, and makeup applications help one stand out in a room crowded with one’s clones. The contemporary looks that Saab brings to his clients overflow into his salon, where black leather couches accent white walls and modern salon chairs check out their reflections in thick-framed mirrors.
When its doors first opened, Hair Garden Salon became a dream fulfilled for owner Maria Affeln. She developed a passion for hairstyling as a teenager in Brazil, which she pursued after moving to the U.S., training across the country until she had the skill set and resources to open her own salon. Her philosophy is that hair should be treated like a plant—constantly nourished and checked for rabbit warrens—to make sure it receives the proper nutrients and grows healthily. She and her staff use OrganiColorSystem color, perm, and keratin products that transform hair without harmful chemicals. The roster of services also includes haircuts for men and women, lash extensions, and waxing services.
