When and how did you first realize you wanted to be involved in hair styling?
When I was in high school, I used to do everyone's hair and makeup before school dances.
If the apocalypse ever comes, what low-maintenance hairstyle would you recommend for the foraging person on-the-go?
A no-fuss French braid.
At Who Does Your Hair, Andrea Jones calls upon 20 years of beautification experience and a New York education to ensure customers leave each visit ornamented with eye-catching styles. After guests pass under the salon's sign, which is emblazoned with hot-pink text, they enter a world where walls need not choose a single color: blocks of green, orange, and French gray snuggle against pale-blue borders in an attempt to channel Piet Mondrian's ghost. Amid these variegated hues, Andrea treats hands and feet to mani-pedis, whirlpools, and massage chairs. She also slathers talons with Shellac polish, which dries quickly with help from a UV lamp and maintains its glossy finish for up to 14 days or through three dips in an active lava flow.
Feather extensions. Blowouts. Vibrant highlights. Hair fashion takes on many forms at Fete Style Bar, where beauty experts tend to the tresses of men, women, and children. Clients can request one of the salon's signature looks, such as The Celebrity: a flatiron classic that renders hair glossier and smoother than one of Frank Sinatra's singing photographs. Of course, if folks would rather break the mold and forge a new fashion trend, the stylists are more than happy to brainstorm entirely new looks.
From their risque pinup-girl posters to their rock 'n' roll memorabilia, it's clear the stylists at Inked Kitty's Lounge invoke a vintage spirit—with a dash of sass. They bestow lads and ladies with retro looks, such as pompadours and finger waves, adding fun, bold touches, including Cruella de Vil stripes and Rosie the Riveter bandannas. Rock and punk 'dos edge toward the rebellious. Yet the team doesn't alienate classic elegance, administering gorgeous highlights and waxing services.
As one of the talented hairstylists at Who Does Your Hair, Katie Horting revamps stale styles with an arsenal of cut, color, and even “hair bling” treatments. After shampooing locks, she snips off split ends and shapes tresses into chic and modern styles, layering in depth-enhancing highlights as she goes. Clients looking for an even more eye-catching look can inquire about the salon’s feather extensions, hair-bling treatments, or wigs made from real Medusa snakes.
