When you’ve been styling hair for more than 35 years, it can be easy to fall into a routine. That’s why Hairs 2 U owner and master stylist Toni Staskus continues to attend classes and hair shows whenever she can, ensuring she stays up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques. Her commitment to education has led Toni to earn master hair-colorist certification from Wella, Clairol, and Redken, as well as certifications in hot-fusion hair extensions and KeraGreen organic hair straightening.
Inside the lavender-walled salon, pop-art paintings and magazine clippings inspire clients to request classic cuts or the modern, asymmetrical looks favored by most Picasso models. Beyond relaxing, texturizing, and perming tresses, Toni and her staff also weave in glitz in the form of feather, tinsel, or party-color extensions and can lend their coloring expertise to tint eyelashes or freshly shaped brows.
The licensed massage therapist at Studio V Salon & Spa administers therapeutic and deep de-stressing massages to clients' tensed muscles, working alongside a brigade of ace stylists, nail technicians, and medical practitioners that beautifies and pampers patients with spa and salon services.

Elsewhere, manicures and pedicures reshape nails, keratin and styling sessions soften and sculpt tresses, and a pumpkin facial coats epidermises in a pumpkin-enzyme scrub that briefly transforms noses into elegant carriages.
