Decorated with framed playbills and mirrors surrounded by bright lights, Box Office Hair resembles a celebrity’s dressing room where guests feel like they’re the stars of the show. The salon’s beauticians, who boast skills that range from stylist to master consultant, reimagine hairdos with basic cuts and coloring as well as treatments that yield more-dramatic effects, such as spiral perms and block coloring with three different hues. Brazilian keratin treatments tame wild, frizzy strands for a camera-ready finish, and extensions let short hair act the part of a longer, thicker mane, which gives clients an acceptable excuse to intimidate zebras at the zoo.
With his electrifying smile and edgy sense of style, Donny Dinh fits right in among Xander Blue Salon’s urban-chic decor. Donny draws on his knowledge to snip and style hair according to the latest trends. In addition, Donny also uses Goldwell dyes to enliven hair with highlights or help spies disguise themselves as their more stylish twin.
Even as a little girl, Arlene Gray knew she wanted to be a hairstylist, and she has spent the last 27 years fulfilling that dream. After training in New York City, she moved south, eventually opening A's Hair Salon. Not only does she continue to treat hair to her expert styling services—including colorings, cuts, keratin treatments, relaxers, and extensions—but she also shares her knowledge with others as a cosmetology instructor and volunteer stylist for cancer-related charities.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
The stylists at Top Image Salon & Spa orbit patrons on the almond-hued hardwood floor, their hands flitting around heads as they cut, color, and deep condition hair. Global Keratin products smooth locks, and massaging pedicure chairs gently ease neck and back tension from Atlas Halloween costumes while technicians coat nails with polish. In a private room with a wall mural of tranquil water, patrons bask in a treatment bed during massages, waxes, and applications of permanent makeup.
