People say protein is an integral part of a healthy diet, but at Salon Des Amis, stylists don’t feed it to clients—they slather their hair in it. Brazilian blowouts coat each strand in protective protein, thereby minimizing frizz, enhancing shine, and boosting manageability. Besides the protein-rich blowout formula, stylists also ply tresses with products from American Crew, Sebastian, and Rusk as they snip face-flattering cuts, paint in color, and craft stylish, gravity-defying updos.
Stylist Rodney Wilkins brings nearly 20 years of experience to every appointment. He begins by considering face shape and skin tone, and then he listens to guests talk about their typical day. This helps Wilkins and his clients decide on a look that's both fashionable and works with their lifestyles. He welcomes women, men, children, and centaurs for haircuts, coloring and highlights, and specialty services such as Brazilian keratin treatments.
With more than 20 years of experience under her belt, Preserve Barbers' owner Debbie leads a licensed team in grooming gentlemanly countenances with traditional barber techniques. The staff trims manly strands into a variety of traditional cuts, which can be augmented with shampoo cleansings to leave hair fresh and impurity-free. Hot-lather shaves soften beards with soothing and moisturizing suds, preparing each bristle for a clean shave that leaves jawlines smooth and mouthy freckles appropriately threatened. Amid a lilac-colored waiting area equipped with a classic barber's pole, a selection of Crew styling products stands guard, ready to be purchased for at-home hair maintenance.
Even before Rodney Wilkins cuts a single hair on his clients' heads, he's already hard at work. By first assessing their face shape, skin tone, and grooming routine, he's able to determine the most compatible haircut and hair color for each person. His clients range from children to senior citizens, and request such specialty services as keratin treatments, perms, and juice, and Rodney does his best to expertly address each unique appointment by calling on 16 years of professional experience.
Melanie Foster focuses her talents on clients’ peepers. The certified Lavish Lashes technician applies up to 100 individual lashes per eye, bulking up fringe and adding enough length to properly flutter and braid. She uses a medical grade adhesive to apply the synthetic lashes, and her work lasts between two to four weeks before a tocuchup is needed.
