The friendly beauty professionals of Tanglz are like a family. In that vein, each client they’ve welcomed into the full-service salon in the past decade has also become another member of their clan—luxuriating in their customized hair, skin, nail, and body treatments. To enhance haircuts, hair color, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments, Tanglz stylists rely on Redken, California Smooth, Aquage, and Matrix haircare products, and the salon's nail techs reach for OPI and Young Nails products. Nail techs are also trained in CND nail treatments and specialize in french manicures, from the traditional pink and white to the new trend of capping each finger and toe with a tiny graduation cap. Tanglz also offers facials, full-body waxing, and massages for all-around relaxation and aesthetic options.
Catrina Hull has not only been gifted with an artist's touch—nail polish being her medium—but fate has also bestowed her with the gift of gab. Within Salon West, the personable technician treats acrylic and natural nails to Shellac, glitter, and other polishes as she cheerfully chats up her clients, learning about their lives and, hopefully, making a new friend in the process. Though she's ever-friendly, Catrina is more than happy to soothe skin with paraffin and callus treatments while her clients talk on the phone or listen to their iPods. She also packs up her paints and brings her nail services to senior citizens, busy businesswomen, and other clients in their homes, offices, and blanket forts.
After appointments, some of stylist Melina Cruz's clients strut confidently out the door, while others pose for the camera for photo shoots and fashion shows. Prepping models for professional photo shoots has allowed Melina to stay current on the latest style trends, and to transfer that knowledge to her regular clientele during her signature cuts, hair coloring, and keratin treatments.

It's no coincidence that the predominant imagery at Neptune 7 Salon & Spa is that of water. The salon's team of stylists pays special attention to this most vital of elements, painting their walls an aquatic blue and enhancing their haircuts with deep-conditioning treatments that inundate follicles with hydration. Thankfully, the menu at their full-service spa doesn't stop at the scalp. Other treatments include waxing, massages, corrective facials, and hydrating paraffin mani-pedis. There's even a teeth-whitening treatment that helps conceal stains caused by drinking coffee or idly chewing on the wrong end of your quill pen.
Blithe Salon’s staff includes hair stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists who work together to refresh body and spirit. For a new look from the shoulders up, clients can settle into a styling chair for a haircut, keratin straightening treatment, or color service. The skin becomes the focal point during European facials and microdermabrasion treatments, each of which is performed by a 22-year veteran of the skin care industry. Massage therapists Carolyn and Michelle, meanwhile, offer respites from the daily grind with soothing and therapeutic treatments such as hot bamboo massage.
