Wendy Campbell has been at the helm of Hair Visions since 1985. The 35-year hair styling veteran tried to retire in 2002, but was so in love with her craft that she continued to attend shows, seminars, and educational classes and to do hair for those who couldn't make it into the salon. By 2011, she was back to the business full-time and so was Hair Visions, this time with a new location on the second floor of Tuscany Salons & Spa. There, Wendy continues to do what she does best––cut and color hair for clients both loyal and new. This time around, she pulls from a product collection that includes names such as MOROCCANOIL, ColorProof, and Aquage as she makes grey roots disappear, enhances shine and dimension with partial or full-foil highlights, and restores dry strands with hydrating hair masks. To help lift limp, lifeless strands, Wendy can also employ perms to pump up hair into a cascade of bouncy waves.
More than 12 years ago, Jennifer Gladden opted out of a full ride to college in order to pursue her true passion: beauty. Since then she's found her dream fulfilled, racking up an impressive client list and portfolio at her namesake salon. Though Jennifer executes salon services ranging from waxing to texturing hair to resemble favorite pastas, she specializes in coloring and highlighting drab 'dos with products from Koleston Perfect and Redken. Her cuts accommodate face and body shape, skin type, hair texture, and lifestyle so that clients can easily replicate salon styling at home. Jennifer also touts certification from Dinair Airbrush and MAC Pro, adding makeup accents to faces in advance of weddings, photo shoots, and special occasions.
Believing that beautiful hair can change a person's whole look, stylist Paola Franco performs an array of fashion-forward cuts and rich color services. At A'Foils Design—nested within Sammy's Salon & Spa—she specializes in foiling highlights and lowlights with wax papers, with which she can bring out subtle color in hair that flatters faces and is easier to find when lost in a haystack. Alongside expert salon styling, she provides facial waxing, special occasion up-dos, and Keratin Complex treatments, which gloss frizzy hair into sleek, silky submission. With a huge percentage of Paola's business coming from repeat clients and referrals, this popular hair spot is always bustling, yet Paola is never too busy to take the time to find out exactly what her clients want.
To create the right mood for showcasing skills he honed at Vidal Sassoon, Chris Gangi adorns his classical-aesthetic salon with white sculptures, marble fountains, and buttery yellow walls. He leverages 16 years of experience to tend to strands amid these tranquil elements; his conditioning treatments, for one, soothe and replenish locks. Chris uses his special skills in cutting and coloring for good by transforming hair, instead of for evil by cutting people in line and making their faces red. He can also thicken manes with feather and hair extensions.
Outside the salon, if he's not attending hair classes and shows, Chris is volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House.
Salon Beaux Cheveux's team of experienced stylists all share a top priority: clients leave feeling beautiful, and more importantly, happy. The staff draws in clients for their coloring, cutting, and styling skills, but also provides hair-straightening services and customized wigs, perfect for gallivanting with Sherlock Holmes or while reading Sherlock Holmes. Along with hair services, the salon also pampers clients with skincare and massages.
From within her private studio at Tuscany Salons & Spa, Perfect Derma's owner and licensed aesthetician, Ghada Salem, keeps tabs on her clients. Compiling a detailed record of the skincare products each guest uses allows her to personalize treatments, which range from photofacials and microdermabrasion to permanent makeup and lash extensions.
