The stylists at Hair Emporium cut and color tresses, creating looks that are refined, bold, dramatic, or artfully sculpted into a sombrero—whatever suits the client's fancy. They use professional products from lines such as Moroccan Oil and NEVO, 100% vegan shampoos, and conditioning treatments that come in biodegradable packaging.
Fashion trends are always evolving. That's why the dedicated stylists of The Parlor Salon undergo extensive additional training with top design houses such as Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon, and Wella to keep their skills sharp and their repertoire diverse enough to meet the styling needs of any client. The salon harnesses Bumble and bumble products to keep hair smooth when styling it into a new ‘do or to recall fond styling-chair memories during complimentary bang trims between appointments. Many of the stylists bear training in cutting-edge treatments, such as Liscio Japanese retexturing and Platinum Seamless hair extensions, which use high-quality Remy cuticle hair to create faultless extensions that are undetectable to the eye, the touch, and the carnival's "Hair must be this long to ride" signs. Whether clients come in for a quick wax or a full day of styling, coloring, and makeup services, they're free to savor a bevy of complimentary refreshments.
