Libby Mastbaum, stylist at Salon Ventures, specializes in making men, women, and kids look their best. For the men and children, she snips out dapper or mussed styles. When it comes to women, she pulls out all the styling stops with a slew of services, including giving hair a sleek shine with a flat-iron style session. For longer-lasting make-overs, she performs color services, particularly all-over highlights, which give hair more depth and dimension than a Stargate at the deep end of the public swimming pool.
Latitudes Salon pampers clients in a relaxed atmosphere enhanced by comprehensive care. For Brazilian blowouts, skilled stylists consult with beauty seekers in order to understand their aesthetic and maintenance-oriented goals. Then, using a formaldehyde-free, açaí-based smoothing complex, an aesthetician coats each shaft of your hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. A stylist will then blow-dry and flat-iron your locks, reproteinize, and rinse and blow-dry again.
The sounds of snipping shears and lively chatter fill the interior of Utopia Salon & Day Spa, a full-service beauty emporium where professional stylists twirl around salon chairs as they cut and color hair to match the unique personalities of their clients. Among these stylists is Ali, whose wealth of experience finds a worthy outlet in her comprehensive repertoire of treatments. Ali’s highlights and coloring treatments infuse hair with the most common shades of summer, from the rippling yellows of a sunset to the vivid pinks of a sunburn. When she isn’t cutting and coloring hair, she adds texture and shine to strands with frizz-busting keratin smoothing treatments.
Liza has seen a lot of hairstyles in her more than 34 years of experience, some good and some bad. She makes the good ones even better and completely overhauls the bad ones, using her clients' natural features and personal preferences as her inspiration. Whether Lisa's crafting a new style or simply softening hair with a deep-conditioning treatment, her clients can always expect friendly chatter and open lines of communication. She finishes each of her haircuts with a blow-dry, saving clients the trouble of driving to the nearest airport and crawling in an unoccupied jet turbine.
