Patrick Viteri founded his salon in 1984, when both hair bands and the hair of Margaret Thatcher were at the peak of their popularity. Armed with DevaCurl and Paul Mitchell products and years of experience, he and his locally trained team wrangle tresses at New York, Boston, and Toronto hair shows when not cutting hair, coloring it, or serenading clients' wild curls. Sponge-painted walls, reddish-brown brick, and cozy, olive-toned chairs await visitors, who settle onto blond wood perches to receive deep-conditioning treatments in the sun-flooded space.
In almost 30 malls sprinkled across four states, Beauty Plus Salon beckons prospective makeover recipients with a fleet of skilled stylists and a colossal selection of professional beauty products. "The beauty industry never slows down," staffers say on Facebook, so "neither do we." That's why mall-goers find Beauty Salon open seven days a week. Between the retail shelves that average 500 nail polish colors, clients get gussied with services that pamper hair, skin, and nails.
Gaddiel Medina and his family helm a staff of talented hair artists who craft polished coiffures for clients and fashion shows. While they slather strands with keratin treatments and snip away dead ends, Gaddiel's bilingual stylists speak both English and Spanish with their primary and secondary mouths.
If two heads are better than one, then it would stand to reason that 15 heads are 15 times better than one. The 15 stylists at Salon Advantages make a formidable team, utilizing advanced products and the Redken Professional Hair Color line to create styles that turn heads but don’t attract swarms of angry bees. The salon's colorist blends custom shades that add depth, dimension, and shine, while shears-wielding hair technicians shape face-flattering styles with deftly snipped angles and layers.
The sounds of waves and birds. Flower arrangements. White leather furniture. Your senses tell you you?re in the tropics, but you?re actually at Tropical Tan, settling in for a relaxing bronzing session in one of the studio?s UV or sunless tanning booths. Voice automated and complete with dryer function, the California Tan Sunless machine spritzes down bodies with a glow that lasts for up to seven days.
Salon O's stylists transcend barbershop banality, sculpting fashionable 'dos from the comfort of their coffeehouse-like digs. Salon O crafts conventional coiffures with its signature haircut and color combinations. After sculpting locks into an eye-pleasing shape, an experienced stylist applies partial or full highlights, a color re-touch, or Tocco Italian color. The entire process lasts up to 90 minutes, but extra time should be allotted for returning the admiring gazes of construction workers, bus drivers, and toy poodles.
