Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I tactfully guide them to a choice that will flatter them more, maybe using some of the elements they like about the other style.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
I offer my clients cold drinks, and I can also do makeup, mani-pedis, and scalp massages if they schedule them in advance.
A portrait of Audrey Hepburn throwing a flirtatious look over her shoulder sets the scene in this two-chair suite, where stylist Mary Boswell aims to make every client feel like a star.

Luxe de Vil Salon owner Jenny is a quadruple threat: entrepreneur, Aveda Institute alumna, massage therapist, and rock 'n' roller. When Jenny set out to open a studio, she wanted it to reflect her personality, which resulted in Luxe de Vil Salon: a space that celebrates the glam of pinup curls, the edginess of tattooed skin, and an appreciation for individual style. Here, Jenny and her staff of Savants specialize in hair treatments, performing customized haircuts and coloring and highlighting services using products from brands such as Moroccan Oil, Enjoy, and Schwarzkopf. Dermalogica and Aveda lotions and unguents lather skin during facials, scrubs, and body polishes, and waxing and massages keep corpora as slick as a buttered bowling ball.
Beginning as a classic beauty parlor in 1975, Hair People adapted to the fashions of every decade as its legacy was passed from its style-savvy husband-and-wife proprietors to their daughter, Maree Chavez. Today, the owner and veteran stylist leads a team of experienced hair whisperers to pamper clients with products from Pureology, Redken, and TIGI. With the aid of complimentary consultations, Toni & Guy–trained staff members tailor all services—which range from dimension-boosting highlights and CHI American smoothing treatments to facial waxing and style lessons—to fit the individual needs and top-hat collections of each client. During each appointment, clients slide into plush chairs and gaze into the shapely mirrors of antique bureaus as the soft glow of a chandelier illuminates colorful paintings and stained-glass pieces.
