Veteran stylist William Edge wields 20 years of experience as a platform artist and world traveler to lead the staff at his eponymous family of salons, spread across Texas and Tennessee. At each location, teams brandish an arsenal of all-natural Aveda products forged from plants and environmentally friendly ingredients found across the globe. Equipped with such powerful conditioning and coloring supplies, they curtail unruly locks with shaping, shading, and retexturing services, and enhance radiant tresses with spa services, such as massages, facials, and makeup applications. Additionally, the salons' seasoned crew helps hone future stylists' skills at Prodedgy, its own training salon for emerging talent.

First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.

Tasha, one of the expert stylists at Art of Beauty Salon, has seen most types of strands, and can wash, snip, and wrangle any of them into trendy 'dos. She also enhances her clients' natural looks with several types of artificial hair, including sew-in extensions and the same sort of custom wigs worn by the world's most stylish spies.
At Salon De Percée, modern hanging lights cast a honey glow on the salon's red-and-white curtains, which drape across the ceiling like pigtails.
