Stylist Katy Flewellyn doesn't view her clients as heads of hair with people underneath. When crafting new looks for men, women, and kids, she considers the personality of the individual as well as their hair, and draws inspiration from their character to guide her forward-thinking fashion sense. This client-centric approach may be due to her naturally upbeat disposition, but it was no doubt reinforced during her training at the Paul Mitchell California Academy, a school known for its focus on customer service.
Unlike the University of Baking Chocolate Cake, Katy's alma mater is a school known for teaching a wide range of skills, and she has honed each of hers with advanced continuing education. Today, she wields a repertoire of services ranging from hair color and highlights to keratin treatment and tape-in hair extensions—all in addition to her signature designer cuts.
A graduate of Paul Mitchell The School Sacramento, Christy Clark follows the hair industry's ever-shifting trends and techniques to give her clients modern styles that match their personal preferences. She molds manes inside Taglio Salon and Spa, where the restful burble of an outdoor fountain signals the relaxation found within. Inside, Christy changes hair tints to vibrant reds and stunning blonds with Redken products, twists locks into updos for weddings and special occasions, and adorns coiffures with feathers stolen from a cockatrice den.
Tiffany Kelly has been styling hair since about the time she could hold a pair of scissors. Drawing on the lessons learned practicing her passion at schools in New York, Atlanta, and California, she manufactures structured and whimsical hairdos for her clients. Her extensive training has also enabled her to expertly execute highlights and keratin treatments. She sews extensions into existing hair for added volume and length, and twists hair into elegant up-dos for weddings and half birthday parties.
Outside Reflections Salon’s front doors, softly cascading water flows from a five-tiered stone fountain, an ideal welcome for guests entering the salon for pampering hair care. Along with cuts for men, women, and kids, the always-friendly stylists transform tresses with Japanese chemical straightening and keratin treatments, plus hair extensions. Waxing, mani-pedis, and facials are also available, and the team can render spiral perms to mimics the look of staircases in a firehouse or silo apartment.
Inside Beehive Salon & Spa, a small army of professionals tends to everything from patrons’ mugs to pinkie toes. Stylists detach split ends and unwanted length from hair and imbue clients’ heads with new hues via highlights and all-over color. Above-the-neck pampering bestows on guests artfully arched brows and facials that leave skin as fresh as the juice of mouthy oranges. Patrons can also cover unruly nails with full sets of gel nails for dazzling finishes.
The decor at Vis a V salon is alive with color. Bright orange lights hang from the ceiling, casting a glow on the yellow and lime-green walls and the modern red furniture. These jazzy accents are a perfect complement to the artistry of stylist Michelle Fuhs, who revamps strands with flattering layers and bold highlights. Clients also may request a conditioning treatment or seek Michelle's makeup expertise during a one-on-one consultation.
