Glossy black and fuchsia walls plus neon lights and chrome fixtures deliver plenty of flash for the open floor plan. But you hardly notice 10 minutes into a sublime wash and head massage (made even more enjoyable thanks to flatscreen televisions set above the shampoo chairs). Stylist Mallory Zuidema asks long-haired clients to stand while she clips so she can better see how her wet cut is shaping up. The pro gave our tester a mane makeover, taking her waist-long waves to mid-back and wielding a razor to craft bold, brow-skimming bangs.
