Not everyone can say an Emmy-nominated celebrity stylist does their hair, but the clients of Charles Gregory do. Charles was recognized as head of the hair department on HBO's Emmy-nominated original film Lackawanna Blues, a position he has also held on numerous Tyler Perry films. With such commercial success, it’s not surprising that celebrities such as Halle Berry, Queen Latifah, and Raven-Symoné have also flocked to his talents.
Today, after years spent teaching, medal-winning, makeup-academy-founding, and star-styling, Charles pilots his own salon’s team, which includes hairstylists, a massage therapist, and aestheticians that provide facials, microdermabrasion, waxing, and makeup application. In addition to cutting and coloring, the salon’s stylists can also apply extensions and weaves made from real human hair.
Amid the cozy decor of Salon Deon, expert stylist Kristal Perry can engineer bold highlights, condition the scalp, or sew in an elegant weave to flatter a client's features. Though she specializes in ethnic hair, Kristal styles coifs of every length and texture. Once their hair has been styled, clients can dip their toes into the salon's other beautification services, such as lash extensions that give eyes a more voluminous look without the mess of mascara.
A former nightclub, Club Kiss Salon & Spa still works hard to entertain its guests: they can drink virgin daiquiris, smoke hookahs, and watch live shows as well as getting beauty services. At the sleek, black bar with a white chandelier overhead, guests sip on virgin cocktails as staffers tend to nails. Exposed brick walls are now flanked with a row of white-framed mirrors for guests to admire new hairstyles thanks to cuts, weaves, and other styles. The salon also sells imported virgin hair—high-quality strands that keep the cuticle intact—for use in hair extensions and weaves.
