Mother of three Hali Owens has been creating artful coifs for nearly a decade and a half, choosing to steer away from a possible career in criminal justice to follow her true passion. A Vegas transplant, Owens prides herself on her ability to listen to clients, honing in on their wants, needs, and personality to shape memorable styles and give each guest the knowledge needed to re-create the look at home. She wields products from local favorite sidlab as well as Paul Mitchell and Kevin Murphy, skillfully coloring, shearing, and styling manes of guests nestled in chrome treatment chairs amid the original artwork of L'Attrait Salon & Spa. Besides standard salon services, Owens also doles out cosmetic packages including Saturday Night Special and Evening on the Town, in addition for giving tips on how to best water sideburns.
Today, she's a master stylist, but before beauty school, Hali Owens focused on psychology while immersed in a criminal justice curriculum. Since shifting to her true passion, however, she's cultivated a service menu that ranges from bang trims to elaborate wedding updos topped with three-tier cakes. Despite all these choices, Owens advises guests not to get too overwhelmed: "Don’t worry about knowing exactly what you want," she says. "I am glad to help you decide and make the process as easy and stress-free as possible." Customers are able to relax in Owens's chair, knowing they can depend on her 15 years' experience and expert eye to shape and color the perfect hairdo. Her specialties help clients feel their best, and to Owens, that's the best part of the job: "My favorite moment," she says, "is when my client looks in the mirror at the finished look and I can see their confidence rise!"
Esthetician Karlene Wishloff helps her patrons feel even younger with exfoliating facials, gentle microdermabrasions, waxing, and anti-aging light therapy. Rather than using harmful substances such as petroleum products, mineral oils, and well-aged Windex, the seasoned skin expert removes dead skin cells and reduces hyperpigmentation with plant-based products, fruit extracts, and non-invasive applications of concentrated light.
In Color Salon's entourage of expert stylists collaborate with each client's individual features to create personalized styles that complement face shapes, skin tones, and eye colors. With follicular-styling vision, a hair mood-ring decoder, and a wealth of knowledge from academies including Bumble and bumble and Vidal Sassoon, the texturizing team dutifully performs thorough hair consultations and cuts ($35+) as well as full-color services ($95+). Clients can peruse the mane-taming menu to discover skull indulgencies such as a detail color ($45+), which leaves head strands with newly discovered hues in selective regions for added dimension, or the French-derived bailage treatment ($75+), which dapples head canvases with hand-painting color techniques.
The stylists at Belong Salon beautify clients with a full array of salon services, including cuts, coloring, and deep-conditioning treatments. To ensure people leave feeling and looking their best, owner and stylist Norma Miranda offers free consultations and pep talks with hair roots.
