From her chair in Phenix Salon Suites, Leah Fellenbaum keeps things fresh and stylish up top with creative hair services. Aside from haircuts that frame the client’s face and embellish their features, she offers deep-conditioning and coloring treatments to give the 'do a modern and vibrant look.
Hair In Your Face's owner and head stylist Cassie Hall perfected her trade at Paul Mitchell schools, cultivating a contemporary approach to men's grooming and hairstyling. Hall creates cinema-worthy hairdos based on personal consultations with the client. Her extensive training in coloring and haircare help her deftly cover up gray hairs the way a director covers up a movie star's lack of athleticism with a stunt double. To disguise those gray strands, she uses top-shelf Paul Mitchell products. Hall also has the skills to perform specialized facial-hair trimming to render a bearded face dapper and prevent mustaches from getting caught in jacket zippers. Full-package grooming services turn routine trips to the barber into soothing decompression sessions, with scalp massages, conditioning, and paraffin hand dips.
While her guests are kicking back in the barber's chair or the waiting area, Cassie makes them feel at home. She offers both beverages and views of concerts on a flat-screen TV.
At age 5, Alejandro Gonzalez loved to play with scissors. His two older sisters—cosmetology students—kept a store of styling gear around the house that proved far more fascinating to his budding brain than any toys. That fascination persisted through his formative years and eventually turned into his life's calling. Today, Alejandro doles out cuts, coloring, and texturizing services with an enthusiasm that extends back to his childhood.
His cozy two-chair salon doesn't have room for styling assistants, and that's OK by Alejandro, since he insists on performing every step in the styling process himself, from shampooing to cutting to texturizing. For him, designing a new style means more than updating a look; it's an artistic vision. He wouldn't want another stylist finishing a haircut he started any more than a sculptor would want his apprentice finishing a statue by breaking off both of its arms.
Taking full ownership over his work, Alejandro wants hair to look good now as well as later. To accomplish this, he seeks out professional products that protect against dryness and damage. Lakmé and Pravana color infuses hair with vibrant hues and enriching soy ingredients.
Co-Owners Jason Thomas and Angel Madrid brought their 20 years of experience in hair and make-up design from the west coast working in film, television and stage to create the best salon experience possible. We also specialize in haircuts and color for men.
From the moment clients walk into Pouf, the salon's hip sense of style is on display. Checkered flooring and mod white chairs give the blowdry bar a charming vintage feel. But the boutique's charm is more than skin deep. Each blowout is accompanied by a complimentary scalp massage and stylists only use cruelty-free haircare by Kevin Murphy. Pouf's team, lead by owners Nas Sabeti and Maryam Salassi, also goes the extra mile by adding elegant braids and mile-long extensions to any 'dos. They also deploy GloMinerals cosmetics to create special occasion looks. This attention to detail has earned the salon praise from D Magazine and Advocate Magazine.
