After working under platform artists for Redken and Paul Mitchell, master cosmetologist Carlos Flores opened Aqua Salon and Day Spa, a Paul Mitchell focus salon that emphasizes continuing education and training for its styling team. During services, the team unholsters premium products such as Aquage and Mitch, a Paul Mitchell line developed especially for men. Because the spa regularly styles both ladies and gents, the decor is neutral and posh, like the Supreme Court’s dressing room. Dramatic plants sprout from vases scattered around the spa, and suede seats and a cowhide rug decorate the lobby.
By performing services with skill and finesse, Siggers Hairdressers' trend-wise stylists travel the world to stay up-to-date with fashion capitals’ latest trends and maintain Siggers' Intercoiffure membership for highly prized salons since 1977. When they aren't cutting, tinting, and straightening coifs, the team members sculpt elegant updos for weddings and primp hands and feet with mani-pedis. Siggers also specializes in balayage, a highlighting method that creates more natural-looking sun-kissed streaks. Stylists accomplish this look by painting each highlight by hand, moving from base to tip in a sweeping motion borrowed from Van Gogh's self portraits. Clients longing to boost their beauty quotient further can take makeup lessons with Suni, a makeup artist and educator who has spent 25 years working with celebrities and whose resumé boasts features on commercials, films, magazines, and TV’s Extreme Makeover.
Whether they're working on a basic haircut or creating a dramatic new look, the stylists at Binta Hair Boutique and Salon take special care to create the perfect style. They extend their styling expertise to men and women and can help create manageable looks for kiddos to prevent them from incorporating hair into art projects. Along with haircare, the salon also beautifies guests with mani-pedis, facials, and waxing.
To the stylists at Shay's Hair Salon, clients are the top priorities. That's why the staff works to build a friendly rapport with everyone who walks through the door. The team helps promote healthy hair while fashioning stylish 'dos using expertly applied weaves and relaxers. Cascading waves, pin-straight layers, and elegant curls are all possible at the hands of the capable staff.
The licensed stylists and aestheticians at Beauty Secret Salon may have a few trade secrets up their sleeves, but there's one thing they never try to hide: their clients' natural beauty. They merely emphasize features that are already stunning with fashion-forward haircuts, keratin straightening treatments, and spa services that include facials, mani-pedis, and eyebrow threading. Clients regularly stop in to have their legs waxed, only to stay and get a henna tattoo of a floral design or a particularly complex home address.
