Erin Rivera has been cutting and coloring hair for the past 11 years. She and her fellow stylists work under the watchful gaze of managing director Sonia inside Del Sol Salon & Spa, where they mold manes with products by Enjoy and Brocato. In the center of the salon, a coffee bar supplies waiting guests with caffeine and distressed treasure maps. In addition to pampering guests, the salon also helped raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, an organization that aids children with cancer.
The lifespan of a strand of hair is roughly five years. Stylist Melinda Douglas makes the most of this time with a wide array of hair services. Drawing on 18 years of experience, the color specialist creates modern looks with voluminous layers, alters hues with single-process color, and adds dimension with eye-catching highlights. In addition to cutting and coloring hair, she also performs texturizing services, including spiral perms, Japanese thermal straightening, and Brazilian Blowouts.
Susan Madain earned her license from the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology more than 20 years ago. Since then, she has also become a color specialist. Madain draws on this experience during haircuts, color treatments, and specialty services such as Brazilian blowouts.
In partnership with Aveda, 1st Avenue Salon rolls out a fleet of services in the form of haircuts, color, bridal up-dos, and straightening treatments. An experienced team of mane masters consults each client before rearranging coiffures to match moods or backyard topiaries, and each team member soaks up weekly education seminars on the latest coloring techniques. A hotspot for handpicked products from renowned beauty brands such as Dermalogica and Moroccanoil, the beauty emporium also soothes epidermises with facials and body treatments that combine massage movements and detoxifying techniques to instill clients with a glow previously only achieved by standing in front of an open refrigerator.
