Owners Kerry Dixon and Molly Erickson met over a salon receptionists’ desk. Molly was working her way through school behind the desk, and Kerry was painting nails in front of it. They dreamed of creating their own salon, and eight years later opened Brilliant Hair Studio, a Redken-concept salon. At the studio, Kerry and Molly manage a team of stylists and nail technicians who attend frequent Redken symposiums to keep their techniques and secret stylist handshakes current. Funky red swivel chairs and a striped orange wall abut shelves of the salon’s signature products, as well as a jewelry boutique with unconventional and refined necklaces.
