When Lori Scharmann founded Hair Proz Salon in 1991, she didn't expect it to become the institution it is today. More than 20 years and a new partner later, the salon's staff comprises many of the original stylists present at its opening, and they draw on those decades of experience when performing each of the salon's varied services. They revamp both men and women's looks with a lineup ranging from facials and manicures to haircuts and full-coloring treatments. To keep their transformation skills current, all stylists undergo continuing education classes and sit down for regular interviews with the most innovative 'dos. They carry products from brands such as Skinceuticals, Moroccanoil, and OPI to help clients maintain their new looks outside the salon.
