Salon Azano believes that beauty is on the inside, but looking great doesn't hurt, either—in fact, it can help give a nice boost of self-esteem. To that end, its staff of licensed stylists are constantly taking classes and training in the latest styles and hair trends to help clients look their best. Stop in for hair styling with organic Eufora products—everything from creative color to Keratin smoothing treatments—along with nail and waxing services. You can also get some sun-kissed highlights, or have eyebrows waxed before treating fingers to a gel French manicure and a quick thumb war.
The stylists at Studio M Beauty Boutique have two goals: give clients the look they want and ensure they leave with the knowledge and tools to re-create it at home. This dual-mission helps to explain why the team is so methodical during each and every hairstyling session. First, they hold a one-on-one consultation with clients, discussing past experiences and current expectations in detail before executing the first snip. Then, they take care to explain exactly what they're doing and why they're doing it so that clients can pass the written exam that follows each haircut or color treament.
In addition to their hairstyling services, the staff at Studio M Beauty Boutique also pampers hands and feet with spa mani-pedis and can wax away unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body.
With services such as ombre hair color, permanent straightening treatments, and braiding at her salon, Marijana Hair and Color, Marijana Dinic clearly knows what's on-trend in the world of style and beauty. She and her staff help customers stay on top of the latest styles by creating a gradual dark-to-light hair-color effect, by smoothing frizzy locks, and by twisting strands into playful fishtail, waterfall, and French braids.
They also add hues to hair in the form of highlights and single-process color, create face-flattering haircuts, and add extensions using human hair or yarn.
Natural light floods through the salon's floor-to-ceiling windows onto cozy leather sofas and lush hardwood floors. Further into the space, hanging plants are situated at individual cutting stations, where owner Peggie and her skilled stylists have been transforming the tresses of downtown Westwood for more than 20 years with their 25th Anniversary coming up on July 27, 2014. Clients can solicit Patti, Jamie, or Tracy for elegant Matrix highlights or defrizz unruly hair with Dawn, who's certified in keratin straightening treatments. The staffers can also nix unflattering fuzz from upper lips, chins, and bionic metal limbs during personal waxing sessions.
Whereas many color products merely lock hair in a coat of shiny chemicals, stylist John Anthony has trained in enough academies to know those chemicals can damage hair over time. That's why he treats his clients with all-organic hair-color products that eschew every trace of ammonia, parabens, and plastics, leaving hair vibrant and free of toxins. With more than 23 years of experience, he leads hand-selected team members who share his philosophy as they administer cuts, Brazilian blowouts, and hair-extension services.
Stylists at Salon Niki are armed with an arsenal of the latest beauty products from Brazillian Blowout, TIGI and Matrix to add sleekness and shine to manes. The nail technicians also stock up on new products including long-lasting gel polishes, which resist chipping for up to four weeks.
