Led by senior stylist and owner Liz Sarvinas, the expert team at Hair by Ell gives hair a fresh start with Paul Mitchell, It's a 10, and Joico products during haircuts and deep conditionings. After a stylist seats a client before his or her own personal, triangular haircutting station, the two work together to pick a fitting style, working through options such as ombre coloring, asymmetrical bangs, or a perfect cowlick. Once hair is shed of split ends and extra weight, clients can choose to add body with extensions or depth with highlights or a perm.
Helping customers enhance their looks and boost their self-esteem is the mission at Georgeana Enhancements, where staff members offer an array of cosmetic services. For weight loss, they prescribe meal plans, administer B12 injections, and perform Liposonix treatments that break down fat cells using ultrasound energy. They can also remove facial lines with Botox injections and erase enamel discoloration with either Boost or Zoom! teeth-whitening technology, instead of a fire hose.
Little did Alicia Imani know at 14 years old that her first jobs in salons and spas would inspire a passion for the beauty industry and a future career. Now at Painted Faces, the licensed cosmetologist provides makeup services including wedding-day applications for brides and their attendants and on-set applications for photo shoots. Using cosmetics from MAC, Chanel, and Lancôme, Alicia leads classes where she teaches clients how to apply makeup properly and create looks that work best with their features.
Sonya Fletcher's career started in an unlikely place: her neighbor's scalp. While growing up, Fletcher tended to the hair of neighbors and her own mother, beginning a lifelong love for styling and cosmetology that led her to open Sonya Michelle Hair Spa. Her expertise in braiding, twisting, and weaving keeps her nimble fingers in high demand, but that's not all the salon offers its clients. The service menu also includes moisturizing treatments for curly, kinky, and wavy hair that can be prone to dryness, as well as keratin treatments that imbue locks with smoothness, shine, and the ambition to audition for shampoo commercials. Clients can also come in for color services that can transform looks with vibrant hues.
