Kindal Farwick can transform dull hairdos into fashion-forward styles with nothing more than a pair of shears. While that trick is impressive enough on its own, she also takes things a step further, enhancing shine with highlights or all-over color treatments for both men and women. Yet, despite her talent and love for everyday salon work, Kindal’s real passion lies in specialty hair and makeup design. Whether she’s designing for weddings, runway shoots, or other special events, she can custom-create just about any look, whether it’s a polished up-do or bouncy curls arranged so strands fall in just the right place. She completes hair masterpieces with brow waxes and flawless airbrush-makeup applications. Clients who fall in love with their dolled-up eyes and lips can come back later for a makeup lesson, picking Kindal’s brain for tips on re-creating the look.

More than 20 years of experience have given stylist Becky Durkin at Dimensions in Hair Design plenty of opportunities to learn what kinds of hairstyles work with what types of people. During her consultations—which precede every cut, color, and style—Becky carefully weighs factors such as facial shape, skin tone, and the current condition of the client's hair. Even though she's confident in her understanding of face shapes and style choices, she always listens to her clients' ideas and pairs them with looks that suit their lifestyles.
Salon Concepts' Sharon Jemisen has been a master stylist for nearly three decades, and in that time, she's mastered a variety of services, but she's particularly adept at working with natural hair. She enhances it with braids and twists, but she can sew in natural-looking weaves, as well, or relax hair to make it straighter than the Leaning Tower of Pisa after. She also makes over manes of all types with precision cuts and all-over color.
