For 15 years, Mariuska Garcia sharpened her hairstyling skills in professional salons beneath the warm Miami and Los Angeles sun. Then, in 2004, she opened Uska's Salon & Spa and began sharing her knowledge of salon and spa services⎯including massage, waxing, peels, and mani-pedis⎯and filling shelves with products by DevaCurl, OPI, Oxygen Botanicals, and Wella. While her stylists work, white tree-branch silhouettes stretch across two onyx walls and attempt to braid clients' velvety locks.
Rene and Natalie of Solstice Studio execute cuts, color services, and keratin treatments using professional-quality haircare products. To imbue dos with rich hues, they use Ian Zachary color, and to de-frizz tresses and leave them shiny and strong, they apply La Brasiliana keratin treatments. They also use the plant-extract-infused products of Smart Solutions by Dennis Bernard to protect hair and infuse it with antioxidants.

Wall sconces and elegant chandeliers cast golden glow on Hair Philosophy's caramel-hued walls and leather L-shaped sofas. Amid these modern accents, owners Anita and Taesha transform tresses with high-end products by Schwarzkopf L'Oreal, and Redken. Clients can also solicit the salon's waxing services to nix unwanted facial hair from clients and their teenage cabbage patch dolls.
Fantastic Sams is a full-service salon for the whole family that sculpts wilted hair into a look-twice hot commodity. All cuts start with a soothing shampoo using Fantastic Sams' signature line of products. With today's deal, tired tresses will also be treated to a moisture-melding deep-conditioning treatment to seal in shine and undo dryness and damage from sandbox headstands. After stray strands are snipped away, the lush remaining locks are blown dry as hair is sculpted into an irresistibly manicured mane. Each of Fantastic Sams’ confidence-renewal centers is staffed with follicle fanatics who will whisk worries away with precision and kindness.
