Dave Faunce has styled for the Emmys, Grammys, and Oscars. He?s styled punk and he?s styled goth; classic and cute-with-and-edge. His work is informed by his rocker sensibility and sophisticated eye, which he honed while training in the style of Vidal Sassoon. This versatility allows him to adapt to all styles, from avant-garde to classic. He encourages communication with each of his clients to give them the cut, color, or style that matches their features and fits their personality. In addition to creating haircuts with styling and coloring, Dave defrizzes locks with keratin treatments, and follows up with his clients postsession to make sure they?re happy with their hair and that it hasn't been mouthing off.
The Udi Salon staff pools its collective expertise to groom clients with a full range of hair services. The stylists hone their skills and keep up on trends by regularly attending hair shows, seminars, and continuing-education courses, instead of doing weekly internet searches for "cute haircuts."
Owner Udi's expertise lies in coloring and highlights using Schwarzkopf Igora and Goldwell products, and other staff members specialize in lushing up tresses with extensions or coaxing them straight with Brazilian blowouts. Products from Enjoy enhance each hair treatment, which is delivered in a sleek white room with black hair stations and leather chairs.
House of Blues Sunset Strip has hosted performances by legendary artists, among them Tupac Shakur and Prince. But the confines of the famed venue are just as remarkable, decorated with artwork by Alan Sainte James Boudrot and weathered tin. That tin was taken from a gin mill in the Delta—mere feet from the spot where Robert Johnson is said to have traded his soul to the devil for otherworldly guitar-playing skills and a pick signed “Beelzebub.” And in keeping with House of Blues tradition, the Sunset Strip location keeps a box of Mississippi mud beneath its stage and showcases the “Crazy Quilt” on its wall.

Conveniently, clients can be in and out with a new look in as little as 30 minutes, as long as it takes Clark Kent to change into Superman now that he has to build his own phone booths.
