The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Tintura Salon owner Doris V. Rodriguez studied at the academies of three of the world's most esteemed haircare brands?Paul Mitchell, Bumble and bumble, Goldwell?and has traveled around the United States and Europe to hone her craft. As an instructor for Goldwell, she places a high premium on continuing education, having each of her salon's stylists complete a six-month cutting and styling course upon joining the team.
Color services are the team's specialty, though, and they use Goldwell formulas to create everything from golden highlights to emerald-green 'dos. But Tintura's stylists aren't just adept at applying color?they're also pros at taking it out with decolorizing treatments that return hair to its natural polka-dotted hue.

An expanded front room has completed Biatchi's transformation into a treasure trove of full-body styling assistance; flowing blouses drape over hangers, giant blossoms burst from handbags, and metallic beads dangle from whimsical, vine-like display racks.
