In response, she’s made it goal to give clients a safe haven where they can feel confident they’ll get high quality results delivered by an experienced professional.

The stylists at E'lan Hair studio appreciate bold statements, using their skills with shears and dye to craft 'dos with pink tips, blue mohawks, and sparkly extensions.

The setting is a spunky little Hair Junkie salon, where glittery guitars decorate the walls and shiny bottles of hair- and skincare products pack the shelves of rustic wooden bookcases. The leading lady of our story is Dakota Deweese—a skilled skincare specialist with golden hair. She bustles about the brightly lit salon, smoothing wrinkles, banishing blemishes, and rejuvenating skin through comprehensive facial treatments. On some days, she adds volume and glamour to lashes with professional extensions. Dakota is joined by a supporting cast of skilled stylists who snip up new looks, tanning specialists who bronze skin with UV-free spray, and a fairy disguised as a client who graciously grants her three wishes after receiving a particularly relaxing exfoliation treatment.
The staff at North Goliad Salon—a Paul Mitchell Signature salon—aim to keep their clients looking stylish long after they leave. They begin each designer haircut with an in-depth consultation and conclude with in-depth instruction for at-home styling and care. But the real work takes place in between. That’s when the talented stylists refashion hairdos by trimming bangs, sides, and tops, and smoothing out every unruly strand with Coppola keratin complexes, Brazilian Blowouts, and melted Barry White vinyls. The staff uses color and foiling treatments to breathe new life into locks that have lost their hue to fading or aging. Fusion hair extensions, facial waxing, and makeup services round out the services with beautifying embellishments that put the finishing touches on stylish makeovers.
