As you might deduce from its name, Color Correction Salon's specialty lies in setting strands right after botched home dye jobs or summers spent touring with Jem and the Holograms. Owner Tom Sollock has taken his tinting talents to hair competitions around the world, picking up numerous awards and medals for his vibrant, cutting-edge designs. While color re-touch is a house specialty, its not uncommon to find clients leaving with shocking streaks of neon pink or electric blue, which the stylists create with top-quality pigments or clip-in extensions that offer all the pop without the permanence. In addition to cuts and color treatments, the salon welcomes the opportunity to makeover heads and faces for weddings and other special events, and frequently hosts kids parties complete with mini manicures, facials, and colored extensions for each pintsize guest.
Depilation pro Tina Morlock admits that waxing hurts a bit. But with each subsequent treatment, she says, the pain lessens as hair density thins out and growth cycles sync up. A dose of ibuprofen right before a session can help dull the sting, and distractions such as a magazine, a game on your cell phone, or a ship in a bottle project can help put the mind elsewhere. Tina performs Brazilian waxes on men and women alike, making both genders feel comfortable as she waxes nether regions bare.
Krystal is a trained barber and stylist with specializations in color services and updos. She doesn’t shy away from creating statement styles, often dyeing hair fire-engine red, platinum blond, or poison-dart-frog blue. Of course, she's just as comfortable highlighting strands with classic golden hues or shaving your head and using the hair to knit you custom mitten.
Daniel Littlebear keeps tension and stress at bay. From his table at Alley Cats Salon, he administers his specialties: Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and sports massages. Daniel also offers prenatal massages to help expecting mothers overcome any physical discomfort they may be experiencing.
When she was 9, Brooke Taylor tried her hand at styling for the first time on her best friend’s hair. For many children, this would have ended in disaster, but not for Brooke. Her grandmother, a trained stylist, had taught the youngster in her own salon, and when Brooke finally wielded the shears, she knew she had found her life’s calling. Today, she owns Capello Salon and manages seven other stylists, a nail technician, and an aesthetician. Their specialties range from the haircuts Brooke mastered as a preteen to coloring and hair extensions. In Capello’s spa branch, the aesthetician performs facials, applies makeup, and uses sugar to remove hair from bodies or add hair to balding gingerbread men.

I give an honest professional opinion about the situation and explain why this will likely not be a cut he or she will be satisfied with wearing.
