As the owners of The Art of Hair Salon, Hanh Tran and David LouSana share two concerns: helping their clients to progress in terms of beauty, and helping their stylists to progress in terms of knowledge. On most Mondays, Tran leads in-house classes that equip the salon's stylists with new skills and advanced techniques. The rest of the week is the stylists' proving ground, and they rise to their mentor's challenge by deftly chopping split ends, transforming hair color, and adding extra length with So.Cap. hair extensions. During these treatments—each of which includes a blow-dry and style—they rely on 100% certified organic hair color and products from Keratin+.
Not to be outdone, the salon's aestheticians wax away facial hair and enhance features with professional makeup applications. They tailor their treatments to individual clients, working with them to add seductive shades to eyelids and seductive mustaches to upper lips.
