Shear Illusions Salon & Spa?s Portia Milner has parlayed her experience styling models for runway shows and her position as an artistic educator for Pravana Naturceuticals into a career at the welcoming beauty emporium. She snips and styles strands, accenting them with color and lengthening them with extensions or noodles. Instead of using foil for highlights, she uses plastic wrap in order to get as close to the scalp as possible, which helps the color last longer. Portia also tames frizzy hair with keratin straightening services.
Now working at Pure Expression, hairstylist Linda Knowlton tucks two decades of experience into her beauty belt, including earning an MBA in international business and working as a top seller for Matrix Haircolor. Linda?s styling strengths include precision cutting for all lengths of hair, though long hair is her specialty, as well as masterfully coloring locks to create natural hues or edgier styles.
It only seems natural for beautician Olivia Foti to own a salon and spa. Her more than 25 years of experience in the beauty industry is nearly upstaged by her long list of specializations, which include hair extensions, artificial nails, and facial waxing. But at her beauty haven, Salon De Solage, Olivia isn?t the only experienced technician. Many members of her team boast anywhere from 10 to 40 years of experience, and can beautify a range of hair textures with precision cuts and foil highlights.
In the salon?a sanctuary of colorfully bottled products enriched by zebra prints, plants, and red chairs?clients can also be found enjoying customized aromatherapy and reflexology massages, or having their digits done up with acrylic tips. Technicians create these tips from CND's SolarNail powders, which allow the nail bed to breathe beneath a hard exterior primed for polish, nail art, or tiny games of chess.
Salon Infiniti specializes in hair: coloring it, shortening it, lengthening in, pinning it up in a becoming fashion, and putting wax on it?100% all-natural hard wax, to be precise. Stylists create dramatic, flattering 'dos, add realistic extensions, and smooth frizzy locks. Outside the realm of coiffures, the aesthetics department offers Brazilian and full-body waxing, using the sensitive-skin-friendly wax to clear the way and reveal smooth skin beneath the fuzz. In addition, skin specialists perform relaxing and rejuvenating facials, helping customers battle acne, fine lines, and wrinkles.
