What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? I was once donating my time for a charity event. The event was to help women with breast cancer. As I finished my guest's hair, I noticed that she was crying. She said that she never thought that she would feel pretty again until that day. We hugged and cried together. THAT was the best feedback.

Black, leather seating, elegantly spare walls, and copious light reflecting off the hardwood floors sets the tranquil setting of Singhaar, a salon, spa, and Indian apparel boutique.

Toni J, also known as Katy, grew up around beauty professionals. When she was a little girl, she watched her grandmother press hair in the kitchen and tagged along with her mom whenever she went to her cosmetology classes. Today, Katy skillfully sculpts multicultural manes with formal styling, precision cuts, color, and extension techniques and draws from an arsenal of products by DevaCurl, Goldwell, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology. When she isn't working on everyday dos, Katy designs coiffures for runway models, and this work has earned recognition from EncoreHD Hair Magazine.
Serenity Salon not only respects its clients, but also the earth. That’s just one of the reasons the stylists at Serenity Salon sprinkle their clients manes with all-natural, gluten-free Surface professional styling products, made of botanical oils, vegan proteins, sugars, and corn starches. These products accompany stylists' skills during signature cuts, styles, conditionings, and shampoos that seal in moisture and block out humidity, which can cause mold and unruly flyaways. To complement styling services, the salon offers color services, Babe hair extensions, and Brazilian keratin treatments.
