Not everyone can brush the tangles from their own hair, let alone style it. That's why Perfecta Salon & Spa employs a team of stylists who are experts in the intricacies of hair––everything from thickness and texture to color and astrological sign. In the comfort of the cozy studio, clients can request face-flattering layers, or rewire their head's circuit boards with bold highlights.

Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I tactfully guide them to a choice that will flatter them more, maybe using some of the elements they like about the other style.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
I offer my clients cold drinks, and I can also do makeup, mani-pedis, and scalp massages if they schedule them in advance.
At Victoria Kelly’s personal Salon Republic suite, white painted trim sits atop the purple walls like delicate lace. The painstaking detail of Victoria’s surroundings accurately mirrors her own work, stylish scissor cuts and bold color highlights done with a careful eye and skilled hand honed with five years of experience. Victoria can give bounce to flat locks with a signature perm or design a fashionably elegant updo complete with tasteful floral sew-ins.
The salon itself also hosts a fully functioning face-waxing station, equipped to remove fuzz from upper lips and stubborn daisies growing from the ear canal.
