Over the years, the French phrase “joie de vie” has made its way into English vernacular. Roughly translated into a “joy of life,” it is a quality attributed to those who cheerfully and outwardly show their happiness. In a way, this quality is what Shannon, the salon owner, tries to create every day. A beautiful new hairstyle can put a smile on anybody’s face. She strives to create styles that make her clients feel stunning all the way until the next time they walk into the salon, doing so with whatever is necessary, be it cuts, color, perms, or updos that make generous use of strung-in strands of spaghetti. She takes pride in the fact that most of her haircuts simply style themselves, meaning they grow out beautifully, are easy to maintain at home, and keep the person smiling. As a symbolic reflection of Shannon’s color prowess, her salon walls are bathed in vivid orange paint, and the exquisite, iconic hairstyle of Audrey Hepburn looks down from a painting in the waiting area to offer a bit of inspiration.

The beauty professionals at Rain Salon upgrade the health and look of skin, hair, and nails. Stylists transform drab hairdos with a pair of shears and then enrich color or modify texture with special formulas that straighten tresses or turn them into slick, wavy lasagna noodles. Aestheticians concentrate on the skin that spans ear to ear, buffing away fine lines during microdermabrasion treatments and replenishing vitamins and moisture during facials. Tending to hands and feet, nail technicians shine up nails with chip-resistant and traditional polishes.
When the stylists at Hair Candy Salon & Spa look at a head of hair, they see nothing but stylish possibilities. Depending on the client, they might add dimension with partial highlights, lengthen hair with extensions, or use keratin treatments to tame stubborn frizz and curls. Once they've transformed manes, the beauty experts turn their attention to the rest of the body. They wax unwanted hair and smooth skin with more than a dozen facial treatments, including a therapeutic pumpkin mask with the same nutrients that keep jack-o'-lanterns from ever getting pimples. In addition to these services, the staff uses FDA-approved lasers to prevent and reverse hair loss.
Not only has Erik Berntsen apprenticed with makeup moguls such as Chanel, Smashbox Cosmetics, and MAC Cosmetics, he has also sojourned to L.A. to train in the art of camera makeup, runway makeup, and permanent cosmetics. Berntsen is also a member of Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals and is also an advanced certified permanent cosmetics professional (CPCP). Using indelible colored pigments on the lids, he is able to make lashes appear fuller or cause eye color to stand out. When artfully applied to the brows, these hypoallergenic hues can also enhance the symmetry of the face, and they can even be applied using ultra-fine, individual hair strokes for a shockingly natural look. The pigments—which will not smudge and can last for years—can also be used to infuse color into the lips, making them appear fuller and more symmetrical or to add a beauty mark to mask a problem area or cover an already-existing beauty mark that has let itself go.
Lavender walls surround Vanity Junkie's easygoing stylists as they transform patrons from head to toe with salon and spa services. Experienced hands carefully snip new hairstyles and infuse heads with color using products from brands including Redken, evo, label.m, and Pureology. Frizzy heads can be smoothed out, whereas perms convert flat tresses into well-orchestrated curls. Staffers also rejuvenate countenances with facials and microdermabrasion treatments, and extract or add hair to body areas with waxing and hair extensions, respectively. As stylists work, Vanity Junkie's street-facing garage door floods the main space with natural light that gleams off mirrored tables and a dangling chandelier. Before and after sessions, customers lounge at an in-salon bar enjoying coffee, beer, wine, and the comical screams of shorn locks as they fall to the ground.
