Though her passion for glamour goes all the way back to her early childhood, it wasn?t until Jeanice Bouvier Davis leapt into Manhattan?s Robert Fiance Hair Academy that she began to realize her true obsession. After graduating with honors, Davis went on to train with industry leaders such as Aveda and Paul Mitchell?groups that allowed her to build a solid understanding of how to properly serve a multicultural clientele. Armed with a varied set of skills, she eventually took another bold leap by opening Hair Cafe in 2004. Situated directly across from the Eastern Market Metro station, the salon gives Jeanice and her diverse team of male and female stylists the chance to focus on a variety of high-end services, from artful cuts and curls to relaxers and keratin treatments.
Jim Ostrosky, erstwhile fashion consultant for the local Fox affiliate and fashion writer for the Birmingham News, now brings his eye for texture and color to bear on the manes of clients at his intimate home salon. More than three decades in the industry inform his oversight of a team of stylists who wield organic products from Aveda instead of threatening hair into obedience with vats of liquid nitrogen. As they craft new 'dos, the stylists employ advanced techniques such as halo brick and paneling to create highlights or keratin smoothing treatments to banish frizz. In addition to snipping locks into classic coiffures, the professionals delve into new styles and trends, such as fusion and micro link hair extensions.

A resident massage therapist assuages aches and pains with customized bodywork and chases away stress by kneading muscles with fluid hand movements.

Vestavia International Hair Salon’s team of American and European stylists craft sleek and stylish dos through personalized cuts and nourishing hair treatments. A preliminary shampoo purges heads of dulling grime, sweeping it away in a warm rinse. Next, scissors whizz in and out of hair jungles to restyle the topography of unkempt domes, lavishing both men and women with coifs tailored to personal taste, current fashions, and the mouthy demands of shivering earlobes. Lady locks also bask in a hot oil treatment, which penetrates dry and damaged tresses to leave them strong and radiant.
