The stylists at Salon Couture flatter faces with haircuts that are tailored to each client's features and lifestyle. Their highlights add fun streaks or extra dimension to 'dos, and their ammonia-free color treatments mask grays. Other services include professional Brazilian keratin treatments that leave frizzy locks tamed for weeks on end, and Remy hair extensions that were approved Rapunzel herself.
A head of hair is a blank canvas on which Stephanie Toole creates artwork. At Stephanie's Studio at The Salon Lofts, she cuts hair, adds dimension with highlights, creates intricate updos, and even shapes eyebrows. She executes each treatment with her client's vision in mind, and seeing a client walk out with more confidence than a rhino playing Red Rover is what inspires her passion for hairstyling.
Lea Hernandez has been passionate about hair since a young age. She brings this passion to her styling chairs, where she sets to work cutting, coloring, and texturizing her clients' 'dos. Lea is adept at dealing with curly hair, shaping it into smooth layers or defining it into elegant updos. She also waxes away unwanted fuzz and shapes brows to match newly shorn hair.
Beautifiers at 2 Dye 4 Salon and Spa (formerly Salon Serenity) dole out a cut and style, a hot-stone massage, or permanent eyeliner to patrons in a salon filled with black chairs and track lighting. The always-changing menu of services includes hair, nail, skin, massage, and permanent-makeup services.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services.

At Thomas McPherson Salon, stylists lavish each client with individual attention, an amenity that's only possible at an intimate, personalized salon. Owner Stuart McPherson created this boutique styling center as an escape from the mammoth, cookie-cutter salons popularized by megalomaniacal bakers. He specializes in dry cuts for curly hair, and frequently save manes with corrective coloring services using Matrix products. Among the experienced staff is Harrington, a master hair cutter, color specialist, educator, and updo designer who recently returned from Los Angeles after styling hair for Dancing With the Stars. Their aesthetic sensibilities even extend to the decor: glass-topped coffee tables and oriental rugs in the lobby lead to antique-looking gold-and-black sideboards at each styling station.
