Allure likened the hairdo-renovating experience at Ginger Group for Hair to speed dating. Referring to the salon’s creative director, David Hockney, the magazine writes, “He fired off questions about our likes, dislikes, and profession.” Using the information he acquired, Hockney crafted a face-flattering, personalized hairstyle that the contributor described as “love at first sight.”
Putting clients in the hot seat is common practice at Ginger Group for Hair. The stylists take personalized services very seriously; individuality, after all, is half of their philosophy. The other half? Education. Trained in European techniques, each stylist has obtained advanced education in time-honored cutting, coloring, and snake-taming techniques. Yet, the learning never stops. The team stays hungry for knowledge about the salon industry’s latest innovations and always seeks new ways to develop and build on its practices.
As a result of the team's dedication, its haircare services have earned acclaim from clients and multiple shout-outs from Allure. Ginger Group for Hair’s success can also be attributed to the quality of its hairstyling products. Every service enlists help from environmentally conscious Texturizze products, which are enriched with natural, sustainably sourced ingredients that are friendly to Mother Nature’s receding hairline.
A chorus of snips and clips rings out across Hazel Street Salon, where owner and master stylist Dervisa leads her staff through innovative hairstyling treatments that utilize organic color and styling products. Dervisa's stylists take her lessons to heart and call upon their own talents as they revamp hairdos with cuts, colors, or KeraGreen straightening treatments that unkink frizzy curls and extensions crafted from garden hoses. As they shuffle around the chocolate-colored salon chairs that line the studio, they consult the reflections of full-length mirrors and shiny wooden floors until cuts are to their clients' satisfaction. On the other side of the salon, aestheticians beautify skin with makeup applications, mani-pedis, and brow waxings.
