Maria White has been a stylist for decades, and as the owner of Natural Beauty by Maria, she brings her lifetime of skills—and her effervescence—to the styling chair every day. She specializes in both natural and chemically treated African American hair. Her hair services include sculpting curly coifs, smoothing strands with relaxers, and painting manes in vibrant hues, such as red ombre color or blond highlights. Maria is also an eyelash-extension expert who adorns lids with lush, peeper-framing fringe.
Led by industry veteran Michael Branan, Hippie Jack's Barber Shack prides itself on keeping its old-school barbershop vibe while still offering the latest in men's hairstyles. The extensively trained staff snips hair into classic and new looks, trims beards and mustaches, and shaves face stubble until chins are as soft and smooth as a lamb wearing sunglasses.
It’s no coincidence that Salon Bloom’s name makes a reference to nature. The staff relies on certified organic products when styling clients, including organic keratin treatments to make hair sleeker and shinier without chemicals. Aside from their products, the staff is sure to follow environmentally conscious and green practices, such as reusing dulled shears as hair sticks.
Focused almost exclusively on hair services, Paggios staff clip, color, and style the 'dos of their clients. Inside the quaint, stylish studio, small mirrors dot the wall alongside a row of stylists' chairs where men and women can kick back during cuts or even special-event updos.
