With more than 25 years of styling experience, Ms. Shalini—a certified cosmetologist and skincare specialist who has studied beauty in the United States and India—envisioned a tranquil beauty oasis when she founded Instyle Beauty Salon. Today, along with Ms. Tamina, a certified cosmetologist, hairstyling specialist, and a graduate of New York’s Aveda Institute, Ms. Shalini pampers customers with spa and beauty services in a hair salon and three private treatment rooms.
In the Buddha room, tranquil statues oversee massages and facials under the soft light of candles and paper lamps. In the Village room, hanging lanterns illuminate rustic art as customers recline for facial treatments. Waxing and cleaning treatments populate the Garden room, which cheers clients with fresh flowers that commiserate amicably with freshly plucked hairs.
For the past 15 years, the beauty experts at Sheila's Hair Design have enhanced bodies with cuts and colors, the ancient art of threading, and henna tattoos that are ideal for weddings or turning a row of freckles into Pac-Man fodder. A boutique area showcases clothing and jewelry from Pakistan and India, including traditional pieces from Rajasthan.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
The seasoned stylists at Yolanda's Hair Studio make over hair from roots to tips with high-fashion cuts and other hair services for men and women. A thorough sudsing scrubs away oils and other nonrenewable resources, reviving hair's natural bounce and swing before stylists trim ends and shape layers into a face-framing mane. Tress-tamers may also add hues to hewn 'dos with a choice of single-process color or highlights and lowlights, resaturating pesky roots or imparting multi-dimensional shine in eye-catching shades. A blow-dry styling then fixes domes with sharper elegance than a tuxedoed princess.
