The team behind Chez Beaute Salon and Spa primps patrons with services amid stately wooden styling stations, tile floors, and orange accents. Hairstylists mold manes with products by Redken, Pureology, Paul Mitchell, and Brazilian Blowout, and makeup artists paint faces with custom techniques and products by jane iredale. Beauty techs tint fa?ades with spray tanning and nourish epidermises with skin treatments by Dermalogica. They also evict unwanted hair with wax, enhance beloved fuzz with brow tinting and lash extensions, and adorn hands and feet with OPI polish. Massage and bodywork heighten the relaxation. At the front of the shop, a boutique area with jewelry, hats, and scarves equips guests with accessories before they return to the outside world and their robot overlords.

Q&A with Miranda, Nail Tech
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We do offer water, tea, juice, and magazines at the reception area.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of the job is feeling satisfied when I see the beautiful outcome. Especially when the client says "I love it." I love to give people a little relaxation and pampering after all the time they spend with work and family.
"If you don't look good, we don't look good."
That's the tagline?and philosophy?with which hairstyling legend Vidal Sassoon made a name for himself. Through the decades, he garnered a large following of clients who trusted his ability to create hairstyles that worked with their bone structure, or that fit perfectly within their favorite sombrero. Sassoon passed away in 2012, but his philosophy lives on inside Jessi James Salon & Spa. There, Vidal Sassoon-trained stylist Mica Popovich draws on more than 20 years of experience to create hairstyles that?in the tradition of Sassoon himself?flatter the features of each client.
Kelly Morse’s first client was a Barbie doll. From a young age, she knew she’d be a hairstylist, but she didn’t leave anything up to fate. After becoming a certified cosmologist she pursued further training from Sexy Hair, Matrix, Pravana, and Paul Mitchell. Kelly is also a certified Redken Master Specialist, which she uses to the benefit of her clients at To Dye For. Using the latest Redken treatments and products, Kelly and her team of stylists offer haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments. They also offer feather extensions and formal styling for weddings to proms to after-hour parties for rowdy prom chaperones.
It takes a lot of people to keep Chez Beaut? Salon and Spa running smoothly. The team there includes more than 20 hair specialists, not to mention experts in skincare, nail decoration, and body treatments. This diversely talented staff is the reason Chez Beaut? can offer such a breadth of services, from makeovers with Jane Iredale makeup to hair color services with Pureology and Redken products. Waxing and spray tans round out the menu, making guests feel confident enough to hang by the pool or lie down in traffic in their swimsuits.
Seasoned stylist Melissa Rascon brings her training from prestigious institutions such as Vidal Sassoon and Aveda to her chair at Hair by Melissa Rascon. Aside from haircuts for women, men, and children, Melissa also beautifies strands with highlights, relaxers, and gloss. She also tames wild tresses with keratin treatments, which rely on a formaldehyde-free formula to keep hair smooth, shiny, and wholly unattractive to mad scientists for 8 to 12 weeks.
