Studio 54 Salon has been operating since 1997, but the staff stay abreast of new trends and styling methods through continuing education. The styling team animates its regular training with such products as Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatments, Matrix Biolage shampoos and conditioners, and Mirabella cosmetics. When they aren’t cutting, coloring, styling, or conditioning hair, the staff can be found rendering facials, tanning skin, or applying makeup to statues for practice.
For the past 13 years, Natty’s job has focused on one thing: making clients look their best with beauty enhancements for hair, nails, and lashes. To this day, she fulfills that goal with styling and coloring services for women and men. Her specialties include extensions and weaves. For complete makeovers, she contours facial features with permanent-makeup applications and draws attention to peepers with eyelash extensions. To further the transformations, she welcomes clients to mollycoddle their hands and feet with mani-pedis or rejuvenate their skin with facials from Mary Kay consultants.
Now under new ownership, Beau Cheveux boasts a staff of experienced cosmetologists who transform lackluster lid covers into bountiful blinkers with professional eyelash extensions. The service makes lashes appear fuller and longer without makeup, and their waterproof quality makes them conducive to fluttering at fish or singing in the rain without the threat of mascara cheek stains. Adhered to the natural lash, extensions last six to eight weeks, at which point clients can opt to have them filled ($50+ extra) or let them shed with the natural lash cycle. Beau Cheveux's chic and elegant salon befits peeper pampering with floral arrangements and warm lighting to foster relaxation.
Old meets new at Shorty's Barber Shop, where owner Cristel Contreras and her barbers spend their days doling out services that range from timeless to modern. Traditional hot-lather shaves leave faces and scalps smooth to the touch, whereas fade haircuts may be customized to include designs such as stars, lettering, and grocery-shopping lists. Gentlemen's cuts can also include everything from classic styles to pompadours, all performed as clients sit back, relax, and watch a movie on the shop's TV.
The beauticians in training at Cameo College welcome visitors to the comfortable confines of their new cosmetic studio––a contemporary workshop space that mirrors the demands of the professional salon world. Upon arrival, follow the aromatherapy scents to the lower level's adult day spa, where you’ll be greeted by a friendly staff, more than 60 high-fashion styling stations, and an 800-galloon saltwater aquarium filled with impeccably groomed fish.
