A portrait of Audrey Hepburn throwing a flirtatious look over her shoulder sets the scene in this two-chair suite, where stylist Mary Boswell aims to make every client feel like a star. In character as Holly Golightly, Hepburn appears with the iconic chignon and highlights—a look Mary herself can replicate with updos and color treatments.
At Victoria Kelly’s personal Salon Republic suite, white painted trim sits atop the purple walls like delicate lace. The painstaking detail of Victoria’s surroundings accurately mirrors her own work, stylish scissor cuts and bold color highlights done with a careful eye and skilled hand honed with five years of experience. Victoria can give bounce to flat locks with a signature perm or design a fashionably elegant updo complete with tasteful floral sew-ins.
The salon itself also hosts a fully functioning face-waxing station, equipped to remove fuzz from upper lips and stubborn daisies growing from the ear canal.
Hair design gets a distinct artistic spin at Roots Salon & Hair Studio. Owners Miles and Nicole Higgins and Robert Maples sought to assemble a team of hairstylists trained by Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Toni & Guy—a team with the technical flexibility and artistic vision to create unique looks that match each client’s personal style. And whether they’re crafting a haircut, performing ombre or balyage coloring, or styling ‘dos for special occasion, they put their education and vision at the forefront of their work, neatly aligned with the preferences and demands of their customers.

Not everyone can brush the tangles from their own hair, let alone style it. That's why Perfecta Salon & Spa employs a team of stylists who are experts in the intricacies of hair––everything from thickness and texture to color and astrological sign. In the comfort of the cozy studio, clients can request face-flattering layers, or rewire their head's circuit boards with bold highlights.
A tousled updo, a side-swept 'do, choppy bangs—Michelle, owner of Mickey Do’s Hair Studio, tweaks coifs to accommodate any client’s sense of style. But she shines when it comes to edgy 'dos, whether that means a short and spunky bob or an expertly disheveled men’s cut.
