The Stylists at Just Teasin' Hair Salon snip hair, sculpt contemporary styles, and enhance their work with Paul Mitchell hair and color products. The spacious salon glows with natural lighting from its plentiful windows. As the stylists get busy, clients relax in salon chairs in front of stylish arched mirrors. All of the staff continue to educate themselves on new trends and technology in the salon world, from innovative hairstyles to gels that make hair sprout its own umbrella in the rain.
Golden-hued walls radiate warmth inside Trendsetters Salon and Spa, where an equally inviting staff stands eager to turn envisioned hairstyles into reality. With the help of Redken and Pureology products, stylists clip, color, and highlight locks. An aesthetic team mirrors the styling team's customer-service focus, but instead leads clients to treatment rooms more private than a diary’s secret bibliography. Inside, staff members perform massages, spray tans, waxing, and facials.
Pearl-white salon chairs and a chandeliered foyer create a calm elegance that parallels Amoy's penchant for creating striking, creative hairstyles. A random sampling of the master stylist's resumé inevitably reads like a beauty-school student's wish list. Highlights include serving as the go-to hair guru of Christian Dior runway walkers, spearheading her own successful product line, and separate stints as the personal hairstylist for fashion titans John Galliano and Donatella Versace. Today Amoy uses the salon as a home turf, revamping the tresses of both walk-in clients and celebrities such as Sheryl Crow, Rihanna, and Naomi Campbell.
The popular Upper East Side salon endeavors to give every person who enters the star treatment. Clients cross the salon’s sunny, modern, dark-wood interior and engage in consultations that strategize approaches to hair type and styling needs. House specialties include Brazilian Blowout treatments, bridal styling, and ultraprecise haircuts that render faces as exquisitely framed as Roger Rabbit.
Brad Olsen Tan has been bronzing bodies since 1965 and houses an army of tanning beds, available in six levels, as well as airbrush and Mystic Tan technology. The to-be tanned can choose to stand or lay in bronzing booths, letting UV lamps shine down on epidermises to infuse a glow as shiny and coppery as a collection of freshly polished pennies. Bronze-seekers can also opt to achieve sun-smooched skin in minutes with a Mystic Tan, which covers skin with a coppery coating of aloe-vera bronzers. This tan-ifying mist may take a few hours to become visible on skin, but the process is complete in less than one minute, or about the time it takes to say "Mystic Tan" backward.
Over the past 30 years, hairstyles have evolved from punky ’80s puff-dos, to spunky ’90s pixie cuts, and finally millennial styles. Katrina Hish has weathered every fad with a firm grip on her scissors and a desire to please her clients. In 1981, the owner of Katrina's Hair & Nails began amassing hair, nail, and makeup talent, and ended up teaching cosmetology and doling out inspirational advice from beauty school lecterns. Now she combines her experience with modern sensibilities, overseeing her staff as they expertly cut, style, and color hairdos and lavish clients with manicures and pedicures.
