The ever-training stylists at Artistik Edge reveal their passion for the industry by providing the Lake Highlands community with artfully executed hair services. Following the salon's 22-year tradition, salon owner Terri Hoover—a Redken-trained color specialist—helps her stylists enhance clients’ looks with services ranging from haircuts and coloring to chemical treatments and waxing. Services take place inside a bold, open-floor salon space, flanked by thick-framed, floor-length mirrors that confirm whether or not clients' hairstyles match their shins.
Freelance stylist Sarita Renee has been designing eye-catching hairstyles for more than 12 years—one look at her portfolio reveals that she possesses a fine-tuned, artistic eye. In addition to cuts and color services, she specializes in extensions and bridal hair.
At John Salon, owner John calls on his training with Vidal Sassoon and Toni&Guy to lead a team of stylists in beautifying each client that walks through the door. Amid vintage furniture and zebra-print walls, expert employees craft styles ranging from classic updos to modern layers and specialize in European cuts and color. Guests also can elect color processes, conditioning treatments, and beverages such as champagne, wine, or frosty beer.
Q&A with Marshell Dickens, Owner of Hair by Marshell
What inspired you to start this business?
I am passionate about building long-term relationships with my clients by showcasing my hair styling skills, great haircutting abilities, and my knowledge of hair care . . . but mostly I like being independent!
What does your salon look like?
I rent a very cozy suite at Salon By JC with a nice view outside, but it still has a private atmosphere. The . . . decor is slick and uncluttered, yet I have everything I need at my fingertips to do my job. The salon as a whole is very spacious, decorated with beautiful art and filled with comfortable [seating] in the hallways. There is open parking, lots of cool restaurants, bars, and a local grocery store for your convenience!
