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.
Lookfine Threading and Beauty Salon's Upland beauty professionals vanquish blemishes with contemporary techniques, including electrical microcurrent treatments and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, as well as a passion for threading, the ancient art of sculpting eyebrows into shapely arches with a cotton strand. Meanwhile, the graceful curlicues and camouflaged exam answers characteristic of henna tattoos temporarily infuse complexions with a fresh aesthetic.
Massage therapist Laurelle relies on the certified skills of her nimble fingers to gift backs with deeply relaxing treatments. During the hot-stone therapy massage, Laurelle heats smooth stones and places them at energy points along the body, warming muscles and boosting blood circulation. Laurelle cossets guests for 40 minutes, 60 minutes, or 90 minutes, allowing them to match their massage to how long they are comfortable leaving vintage Lego sets alone in the car. Purple accents speck the cool color scheme of the salon, where diaphanous plum curtains complement sage-green walls.
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.
A master of her craft and a naturally fast runner, Judy Christopher has kept pace with the ever-evolving field of salon techniques during her more than 36 years in the business. At Biatchi Salon and Spa—the beauty emporium she's recently taken into her hands—those techniques include Japanese hair straightening and pumice-peel facials delivered by a staff of 17 friendly salon professionals. 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.
