Warren Wilkes Salon is quite capable of cranking out pretty hairdos with dazzling highlights, but its owner is also able to deal with the wind- and sun-ravaged hair that only comes from frequently riding a motorcycle. According to an Examiner.com article, Warren, a biker himself, knows exactly where to add layers so that the hair still maintains a great shape even after being smooshed under a helmet and tied with hair bands. He even tells his long-haired clients to place covered hair bands in tresses every 3 inches in order to keep hair protected from the elements and frog plagues.
When Warren and his stylists are not tending to bikers’ hair, they correct color, add hair extensions, and create updos. Aestheticians work alongside Warren and his hairstylists, beautifying faces with microdermabrasion and lash tinting.
