A strict curriculum of classroom work and hands-on practice drives INSO Hair School, where cosmetologists-in-training can garner all the skills they need to jumpstart their careers. Throughout the 18-month program, students immerse themselves in class five days per week and learn the basics of cosmetology theory, practice, and business knowledge from veteran industry professionals. As their schooling progresses, pupils practice their newly acquired skillsets on real customers and fastidious Chia Pets in the clinic. There, they shampoo, cut, color, and blow-dry under the watchful eye and careful instruction of their teachers. Clients who are eager and willing to play the part of the guinea pig can enjoy discounted hair services that include deep-conditioning treatments, highlights, and permanent color.
Corrective Skin Care operates with the philosophy that the skin can be a indicator for a person's overall health. With that in mind, the studio aims for a holistic approach to skin care that involves diet, facial treatments, holistic and homeopathic supplements, and natural-yet-powerful topical products. Licensed aesthetician Jacynth R. Hall helps her clients to achieve dramatic skincare results with microdermabrasion, fruit acid peels, and anti-aging treatments, along with a host of other services. Come in for a deep pore cleansing and acne treatment, or have a youth-enhancing light therapy session that comes with an included peel to reduce the appearance of fine lines and grocery lists written on your forehead.
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.
Hair Ndustry Salon's stylists creates flattering hairstyles worthy of being photographed, a quality of which the shutterbugs who captured their work have taken advantage. Sophisticates Black Hair, Style Q, Hype Hair, and other publications have displayed Hair NDustry's styles in their pages, immortalizing the precision short cuts and extensions in which they specialize. Specifically, the team might employ hydration steam therapy to help locks hold styles longer than those held together with bobby pins and the same kind electrical tape that holds every part of dad's furnace in place for 30 years. Or, they might use relaxers to alter texture for both virgin locks and those in need of retouching.
It only took La'Shonda Hayes a year to work her way up the ranks from shampoo technician to hairstylist. That was back when she was a novice in the beauty world, before Elle Shon Studios existed. It wasn't until 2012 that La'Shonda's raw natural talent, augmented by educational classes, finally took center stage when she founded the salon. Today, the master cosmetologist works with a makeup artist and extensions expert to beautify women of all cultural backgrounds. They cut and color hair, sew in hair extensions, or infuse hair with protein or moisture via special treatments.
