Salon Blue bolsters stylists' expertise through carefully calibrated training programs, helping to earn them name-checks in magazines such as Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and InStyle. The hierarchy at the salon begins with creative stylists, who hone their craft through ongoing education as they collect the six golden curling irons required to ascend to the level of artistic director. To obtain the top rank as a master director, stylists must study under hair gurus such as Vidal Sassoon and John Sahag, and they often show off their skills as platform artists at beauty shows.
Though their titles vary, stylists at every level of expertise can deliver haircuts, color treatments, and makeup applications using Jane Iredale mineral makeup. Floor-to-ceiling windows fill the salon's minimally decorated floor with light and allow straightening treatments to set via photosynthesis.
