Celebrating more than 25 years in the beauty profession––and more than 14 at the helm of Aurora Salon & Spa––Kellie Sullivan Hajjar leads a team of beauty professionals as they update looks with a full menu of salon and spa services. Stylists detach dead ends with trendy cuts or add length with 100% human-hair extensions that use a glue-free system to prevent hair from being damaged or eaten by ravenous kindergarteners. The spa’s skin pros combat acne, aging, and sun damage through custom facials, microdermabrasion, and rejuvenating peels packed with lactic and salicylic acids, and also provide select med-spa services including Botox and permanent makeup.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Impulse Salon offers innovative cuts, unique color concepts, advanced chemical treatments, and a professional atmosphere without the pretentious mood.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Beauty is our passion and art. We use hair as our canvas in approach to enhance each client?s unique beauty. We love the process of transforming someone from start to finish. Our unique creativity is derived from our interest in the latest trends and our love for the beauty industry.
What do you love most about your job? I love working with all different types of hair.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? "I have long, curly hair. Sarai was awesome, the atmosphere was great, and she did exactly what I needed and wanted. She even gave me a new hairstyle. In an hour she cut, washed, blow-dried and styled my hair. Fantastic experience?I will be going to her from now on!"
When aesthetician Talita Pinto and her team look at a shelf of skincare products, they know just which one to use. At Cynthia's Salon and Day Spa, they apply this know-how to help clients look and feel beautiful. When clients want to repair sun damage, they reach for vitamin C. When they want relief from acne, they call upon fruit acids and natural enzymes. Sometimes they employ advanced technology, such as microdermabrasion, to deliver more dramatic results. Like other top estheticians and those who really really want to learn how to unscramble a Rubik's Cube, Talita and her team sharpen their skills by pursuing specialized education.
Pictures of 1950s pinup girls line the walls at EYEFUL Beauty, showing off the timeless looks that the salon's stylists are partial to. They achieve these looks with a variety of techniques and services, including haircuts, highlights, and keratin treatments that straighten out curls and coiled snakes. Their services extend beyond the scalp and include waxing treatments that remove pesky strands with a soy-based product that doesn't stick to skin. Complete your makeover with a professional application of sultry eyeshadow and lipstick.

Pure Salon & Spa's aestheticans and stylists sculpt hair and soothe skin with Aveda products. In addition to using these high-quality products, the space boasts a combination of steam and vichy showers, which staff members incorporate into packages such as the champagne-and-roses body-scrub and shea-butter experience. The experience begins with a grape body scrub that removes the top layer of skin. It doesn't linger long enough to get as sticky as a cinnamon-bun bikini, though. Instead, clients stretch out on a waterproof bed as a vichy shower's multiple nozzles bathe their bodies in warm water. The resident aesthetician concludes the treatment by massaging clients with whipped champagne and rose shea butter to leave skin moist and soft.
