Jessica Powell runs the show at the eponymously named J. Powell Salon, harnessing her two decades of experience in the haircare industry to keep ‘dos stylish and functional. A Goldwell colorist and Vidal Sassoon–trained stylist, Jessica—alongside her team of hair experts—wields handpicked Wella products as she remakes coifs with precise cuts or matches hair color to a client’s favorite traffic sign.
Stylists snipping in the cozy, butter-colored salon give Custom Cuts its name by customizing every single look they design. From stick-straight locks to fuschia bobs, hairstyles are impeccably crafted, and they're always the result of detailed consultations.
Jason B William Salon’s expert tress tamers wield Kenra hair products when snipping locks into fresh silhouettes and Inoa and Matrix coloring products when imbuing them with vibrant new hues. Patrons can opt for Pravana keratin treatments to make hair smoother than a baby dolphin’s best pickup line. Deft fingers brush Mirabella cosmetics over eyelids and cheeks to enhance natural beauty and Balmain Hair extensions send locks cascading down backs.
Within a bright salon decorated with hardwood floors and billowing curtains, the stylists at Bella Hair shape locks into dazzling hairstyles. Goldwell dyes transform strands with streaks of red or platinum blond during single- or multiprocess colorings, and Keratin Complex treatments tame frizzy manes, leaving them shiny and smooth. Bella's beauty experts also wax away unwanted hair?from fuzzy upper lips to handlebar unibrows?and prepare clients for special occasions, such as weddings and proms.
