The owners of Hush Hush Bang Bang have provided a fun, eco-friendly work environment for their team of stylists for nearly a decade. While designing and building their salon, Kara and Wade incorporated recycled and reclaimed materials to create a functional and convivial atmosphere established on sustainable practices. The space now welcomes guests into an airy environment accented by lime green and vibrant florals, invigorating minds as hair techs invigorate manes with cut, color, and extension services. The stylists stay up to date with tress trends and new styling techniques by taking regular "field trips" to industry classes, and they use a mix of high-end and vegan hair products to accommodate all clients regardless of which shampoo they prefer to squeeze onto a baked potato.
In an effort to give back to the planet and the community, stylists actively participate in recycling and water-saving initiatives and volunteer with the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Beams of sunlight pour through the windows of Newport Hair Design, bouncing off ornate mirrors, peering through tall plants, and gliding across sleek, cherry-wood cabinets. The salon?s talented stylists mimic the modern aesthetic of their ornate styling stations as they shear inches from locks, light up hairstyles with gleaming colors, and level out frizzy locks with japanese-straightening and keratin treatments. After outmoded hairdos have been updated, manicurists take the beauty-boosting baton and run with it, trimming, filing and reshaping the nails on fingers and toes. Waxing technicians complete top-to-bottom makeovers by removing hair from the face, limbs, and Brazilian regions, leaving the body as smooth as a figure-skating saxophonist.
At The Wax Parlor, staffers spend their entire day primarily focused on only one thing: waxing. While whisking away hair on the body or face during one of their services, they uphold rigid sanitary standards, never double dipping or flat-out licking a wax stick once they?ve used it. They also stock their salon and online boutique with numbing cream for those looking to diminish as much discomfort as possible.
The only non-waxing service they offer is airbrush tanning, which can put the finishing touch on a new, hair-free look.
Stylist Katie Wang has an appetite for trends. During her 12-year career she has designed the coifs of models for runway and editorial shoots and represented companies such as Wella Professional Color and Sebastian as a top stylist. The smooth, knotted updos and Brazilian blowouts in her portfolio reveal an impressive manual dexterity and a penchant for sleek, Scrunchie-free looks. Wang exhibits her artistry within JM Studio, which features simple and contemporary decor.
