The staff of stylists at Aziza's Salon and Spa cuts and colors the hair of their male and female clients using products from Pureology. Stylists add body and curl to manes with texturizing perms or smooth frizz more efficiently with keratin straightening treatments. In treatment rooms, aestheticians purge pores of dirt and oil with express and full facials and whisk away unwanted hair with waxing services, which yield longer-lasting results than shaving, and carry less risk than felling each hair individually with a miniature battle-ax.
The work of the skillful stylists at Hair International has garnered top praises from the readers of Palo Alto Weekly five years running, earning the salon a spot in the publication's 2012 Hall of Fame. Their scissors and dyes treat locks of every texture and their blow dryers create special looks for weddings and other dressy events. Nail techs pamper paws with spa mani-pedis and depilatory experts shape brows with waxing, threading, and hair-sized mousetraps.
For 16 years, Farzana Farzam has used her beauty expertise to style models for photo shoots, create camera-ready looks for TV personalities, and primp runway models for hair and fashion shows. At Farzana’s Hair Design & Make-up Artistry, she gives the same celebrity-level treatment to her clients as she snips away dead ends or sweeps hair into a whimsical updo. She adds color or waves to dull styles and creates fuller looks with hair extensions or hairpieces and wigs made from 100% human hair.
Trained in the Brazilian-blowout process, the Coppola line, and the Yuko hair-straightening system, the staff at Hair Work Studio knows all about creating lush, frizz-free hairdos. Rather than limiting themselves to one brand, stylists can steer clients toward the product that works best for their particular hair type.
As one of the few people lucky enough always to know what she wanted to do, Daniela Cavalieri marched out of her high-school graduation and straight into cosmetology school. That was in 1986, and she’s been diligently keeping up to date on the latest trends and techniques ever since, attending classes in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Today, Daniela shapes up the hairstyles of men, women, and children with her precision haircuts and thorough consultations. In rendering her tinting and highlighting services, she mixes up natural-looking hair colors to ensure that manes complement both guests’ complexions and the flowers a pranky florist might tape to their backs. To add a little visual splendor to clients' existing styles, Daniela also offers keratin smoothing treatments and extensions.
Whether a client needs a trendy long bob or glamourous 1940s-style finger waves, The Paul Mitchell–educated stylists at Le Burge’t Salon know how to do it. They create current and classic looks with haircuts, full-head lighteners, ink overlays, and permanent-wave texturizing treatments. The beauty experts at the salon also even out skin tone with airbrush makeup and remove unwanted facial hair during threading treatments. They perform these services and others for the Warrior Girls, the Golden State Warrior's professional bodyguards.
