Before Deborah Pufahl opened Hidden Beauty Hair Salon in 2004, she had practiced her craft for 16 years. So, the transition was as easy as melting butter with F-16 jet exhaust. Likewise, to make the transition from an old hairstyle to a new one easy for her clients, Deborah and staff offer complimentary tea and coffee during hair appointments. Her clients' transitions vary. They may leave with highlighted hairdos, locks smoothed with La-Brasiliana keratin treatments, or shortened bangs. Beyond haircutting, coloring, and styling, Deborah administers a slate of more than 10 waxing services.
The experienced and educated staff at Salon Three Sixty focuses their efforts on hair and nails. Using products by Thermafuse and Goldwell, they cut, style, and color hair. With OPI and Essie nail products, alternatively, technicians perform a full slate of manicures and pedicures, even adding hot stones or nail art. The staff can complement their core services with waxing and makeup application, as well.
The stylists at Serenity Hair Lounge are big fans of a fashionable contradiction. Inside their appointed workspace, rustic wood floors and muted, faux-marbled walls provide a chic contrast to the polished hairstyles and vibrant hair colors that parade out the door. To really make manes shine though, stylists can tame unruly frizz with a Brazilian blowout that leaves locks smooth, soft, and less likely to attach itself to dryer sheets.
Bellissimo the Salon's team of stylists have trained at prestigious salon programs, including Paul Mitchell, and they keep up with their style schooling, attending seminars to stay abreast of trends and changes in the industry. Perhaps its this focus on continuing education that allows them to perform such an array of beautifying procedures. Hair services range from cuts and colors to perms and keratin treatments, and other spa treatments include massages in several modalities, teen and anti-aging facials, and head-to-toe waxing.
Oneblowdrybar has decreed that "full of hot air" is no longer an insult: the blow dry bar's menu only has one primary item, and it's the blowout. Of course, there's variety to be found in the treatment, which results in looks named after trendy New York spots. The Soho, for example, leaves waves loose and free, whereas the Lincoln Center incorporates pins and braids for a sophisticated updo.
Joel Warren and Edward Tricomi, founders of Warren-Tricomi Salon & Spa, a network of hair salons stationed across the country, are known for their upscale line of styling products and celebrity clientele.
