As a 14-year veteran of the beauty industry, owner Tawny Gray of Glam Couture Salon—a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon—bestows her beauty knowledge on her team of dedicated nail techs, aestheticians, and stylists, who also keep skills fresh with continuing education. Positive energy flows through the brightly lit salon and spa as stylists use Paul Mitchell products to reprimand rebellious split ends, frizz, and bangs that got too cozy with eyebrows. Aestheticians leave epidermises silky smooth with body waxing sessions, and nail techs spruce up finger and toe tips with OPI, Venique, and CND Shellac polish that can be applied in solid layers or decorative designs.
The knowledgeable staffers at Planet Beauty stock the store’s shelves with enough top-quality beauty products to outfit a regiment of beauticians. Guided by experience as aestheticians, stylists, and makeup artists, they help guests navigate the roster of premium brands, which includes bad-hair-day-banishing products from Frederic Fekkai and Kérastase. Skincare potions from Dermalogica and Peter Thomas Roth clear facial canvases before applications of Smashbox blush brighten cheeks or Divaderme lash extender make eyelashes visible from orbit.
Jesse Daniel Salon’s lineup of savvy stylists tame tresses with the Keratin Coppola hair-straightening treatment. Amid the salon’s black, white, and red décor, experienced stylists infuse follicles with a keratin-rich formula that soothes and relaxes strands without the hassle of singing them a full catalog of lullabies. The treatment defrizzes and uncurls all manner of manes, leaving behind soft, shiny curtains of hair more manageable than a newborn robot.
