To earn the title of stylist at Bruce Todd Salon, all team members must complete one year of advanced in-house training. Schooling does not end there, as each stylist must participate in continued education to stay current with industry trends and celebrity poodle fads. The rigorously tested stylists craft vibrant styles with high-end Goldwell color products, and finish said styles with equally top-notch products by KMS California. In addition to hair services, the salon also offers waxing and nail care.

At the age of 11, Peggy Newlan began sculpting her mother's hair into beehives and french twists. She practiced on friends and family members, her fingers becoming more and more adept as she styled manes and picked locks. Despite her innate talent for hairstyling, Newlan pursued a career in accounting and banking. Eventually, she returned to her true calling, joined ooh la la Salon, and purchased the company in 2003.
Newlan now leads a team of stylists, as well as a massage therapist and a skincare expert who is an educator at Florida Academy. The beauty specialists perform a variety of services, from cuts, highlights, and ionic hair straightening to nailcare and spa services such as facials, massages, waxes, and spray tans.
