Shirin Salon's eponymous founder earned her first cosmetology degree at the prodigious age of 14 before gathering diplomas from L'Oreal, Schwarzkopf, and Vidal Sassoon and opening her own shop in 1987. Today, Shirin and her team of stylists pamper coifs and visages with salon services that include haircuts for men and women, vibrant highlights, and relaxers. Threading and wax technicians absolve bodies of unwanted bristles, and natural-looking eyelash extensions add a flirtatious flutter to attract potential mates and mistaken butterflies. Bridal packages enhance the most striking features of spouses-to-be with makeup, manicures, and gravity-defying updos. Crystals dangle from wall sconces and ceiling lights, casting the salon's white orchids and black-and-chrome chairs in a soft, twinkling glow.
