Scott Torok's eye for beauty wouldn't stop wandering. He saw inspiration wherever he looked, whether it was in a fashion magazine or up the length of a skyscraper. Eventually, it was his knack for identifying beauty in geometry and architecture that led him to hair design—he studied with Aveda and Vidal Sassoon before he opened Descend Salon. There, he styles hair and showcases art from a rotating cast of painters and sculptors.
Scott's team of stylists all have similarly impressive pedigrees. One is the former artistic director of Elizabeth Arden's The Red Door Spa, and others have had their work featured in commercials, fashion shows, and photo shoots. Their services include traditional cuts and, in stylist Shannon Debin's case, dry cuts, which allow her to see how the hair will look and move day to day. The staff also offers ombre and baliage highlights, extensions, and straightening treatments that are far more professional than just tying a pebble to the end of each hair.
