Sacred Lox Hair Boutique’s licensed hairstylists continually lengthen their list of mastered services. They’ve most recently added for-purchase hairpieces and extensions to the salon’s boutique area, which doubles as the entryway to a salon where they cut, color, and straighten hair. The team of experienced hands behind these services includes a licensed braid-and-natural-hair cosmetologist who specializes in advanced weaving techniques. Her skills go on full display during the salon’s weaving classes, which help students learn to adhere different types of hair to scalps or jack-o-lanterns suffering from gourd-pattern baldness.
