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. Of course, they also appreciate the subtly found in delicate high- and lowlights or a slight hue changes such as going from from brunette to auburn. They perform all these services for clients of all ages, but particularly specialize in helping kids and women discover the most fetching way to attract a balloon.
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.
According to Brazilianblowout.com, North Goliad Salon is the only Platinum Salon in Rockwell.
It’s with a classic approach that stylist Mindy Kastendieck updates tresses, making sure that each look melds with clients’ facial features, hair texture, and personality. This attention to detail comes from 15 years of experience, during which she picked up an expertise in color correction and special-occasion updos. But while her beauty tenure has gifted Mindy with a deft hand, it’s through continued education that she keeps abreast of the latest trends.
In the foyer, wrought-iron bars curl up the salon's windows, casting ivy-like shadows across the clay-brown walls. Faux marble tiles guide guests toward private spa rooms for relaxing treatments such as facials, therapeutic massages, and lava-lamp viewings. Further down the hall, an open salon area invites hair renovation with sleek layers, restorative condition treatments, and bold highlights. Clients may also solicit expert nail tech Tina Harrison who draws on more than 32 years of experience for her specialty designer tips, Minx nails, or mani-pedis with long-lasting CND or OPI polish.
For more than 20 years, AIIC-certified master technician Kim Morrow has worked to beautify her clients using her knowledge and experience in permanent-makeup and eyelash-extension application. At The Studio at Rockwall Spa, she helms a team of beauty professionals that enhances features with permanent makeup and elongates lashes with extensions that add thickness without the need for mascara or chunky peanut butter. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair, clearing the way for a custom airbrush tan.
Inside The Hair Gallery, the air fills with the sounds of scissors snipping and hairdryers humming. The stylists at work deftly cut clients’ hair before blow-drying it straight or bringing order to curls. Past these chairs, nail techs top fingers with bright shades of polish while waxing pros hone in on overgrown brows.
