From within Shimmer Hair Salon, stylist Melissa Wright acts as a magician of sorts. As her clients sit in chairs, transformations occur before their very eyes?from dull hues that turn multi-dimensional to frizzy tresses that become shiny and smooth. It's not a sleight of hand that renders these looks, however; it comes from high-quality Aveda products and a stylist who excels at her craft.

At a young age, Sara Parisi knew that her fascination for hairstyling would turn into a career.

The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.

Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.

Though the intimate Claudio James Studio Salon only has two workstations, it overflows with passion and excitement from its duo of resident hair specialists. Owner and hairstylist Claudio James Carrera is in charge of the cutting and conditioning services, from trimming the tresses of children and adults to smoothing and hydrating strands with Brazilian Blowout Zero treatments and deep conditioners infused with fruit acids and essential oils. At the other chair stands colorist Angie Meza—a 5+ year veteran of the coloring and makeup industry—who foils highlights and sheathes locks in all-over color from Goldwell products and a bottle of liquidated Skittles. The pair also exclusively uses concoctions from Aveda, American Crew, and Moroccanoil in their bright blue-colored shop, and offers a 7 Day Guarantee, which allows each client to have their hair fixed free of charge if they are unsatisfied with the original outcome.
