“C’est la vie” is a French phrase typically used to describe an unfortunate, yet inevitable outcome. The stylists at C'est La Vie Salon flip that phrase on its head, cutting and coloring hair to ensure that their clients never accept lackluster style as just another part of life. In addition to conditioning hair with MoroccanOil treatments and products from Kaaral, Abba, and Silis, the salon’s staff coats nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish and brightens skin with 90-minute Eve Taylor facials.

Katie Starns, a graduate of the Vici Capilli Beauty Institute, worked at multiple salons before starting to practice her face-rejuvenating techniques at Harmony Salon and Spa. Each treatment deploys Dermalogica products, a set of cleansers and masks that can be adjusted to personalize facials. Katie takes particular pride in her ability to help clients overcome skin troubles, whether they stem from acne, rosacea, or an unfortunate tattoo of a favorite vice president.

At Hot Heads Salon, “Keep It Up!” isn’t a motivational phrase. It’s the name of the root re-touch treatment, a title that’s exemplary of Hot Heads’ Salon cheeky service menu. Stylists, including the mother-daughter duo that runs the salon, cut locks but do not blow-dry them during “Shape Up…Ship Out!” sessions and straighten ringlets with “I Hate Curl” straightening treatments. Aside from hair services—which also include highlights, Brazilian blowouts, perms, and conditioning treatments—they also perform waxing and manicures.
