Through a commitment to continuous education, the stylists at Clique Salon have learned that hair fashion is a limitless art. Regional and national seminars furnish their infinite utility belts with evolving techniques, which they then apply to cuts, color treatments, and other services at their Houston studio. However, they do preserve one constant: a commitment to environmental health. Their stations remain free of aerosol and are stocked with natural haircare products, including formulas from Aveda, Modern Elixirs, and Tea Tree. Positioned within these fresh surroundings, the hair gurus begin each appointment with a consultation, during which clients sip on wine or another beverage as they describe what direction they want their locks to take. As the stylists cut, dye, and condition strands, they also dispense aftercare recommendations, enabling patrons to preserve their new color without hiring an art-restoration specialist each week.
Cavemen often paid pterodactyls to eat their hair, a symbiotic relationship that provided nourishment for one party and cavewomen for the other. At White Salon & Skincare Center, visitors can appreciate the evolution of beautification amid an inviting atmosphere with sleek, modern décor. Experienced hair sculptors will transform fallow follicle farms into vibrant scalp foliage with thick layers of head canopy infused with rich nutrients. Clients will receive a radiant highlight or lowlight and a lustrously softening Kerastase conditioning treatment. Each look-updating cut and style treads the line between a classy demeanor and fashion-forward sensibility.
While staff at Marq Salon uses styling products from brands such as Moroccanoil, Pureology, and Redken, they know good hair doesn’t come from products alone. That’s why the stylists and nail artists there keep their skills sharp with continuing education, making sure they can replicate the latest trends, unlike time travellers who only brought along sweatpants. They put those skills to use beneath shelves of Coppola keratin treatment and Redken colors. Across the salon, emery boards rasp against nails, and warm paraffin melts around fingers. Therapists warm smooth stones for massages as aromatherapy oils elicit deep inhalations. An airbrush-tanning technician dispenses the eco-friendly, organic solution by hand to create an even, all-over glow that doesn’t require drying time.
