Laruen Falls proves that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree?or the hair salon. As the daughter and granddaughter of professional stylists, she started dabbling in the beauty trade at a young age. She studied hair, makeup, and the art of bringing each client's natural beauty into focus, whether it's through masterful contouring or having them wear a magnifying glass over their best feature. Her services at Pravda Beauty range from spray-tanning to lash applications to elegant updos, and she delights in prepping brides-to-be for their wedding day. She can also design themed makeup looks for fashion shows or glamorous nights out.

Green Apple Salon owner Anthony Skoog knows a thing or two about the Matrix haircare line. He has worked as a Matrix master artistic educator for more than 20 years, traveling as far as Mexico and India to train other stylists. Skoog has also reportedly sculpted celebrity coifs and appeared on reality TV.
The salon specializes in corrective color services that employ Matrix products, and they trim locks with dry cutting, a styling technique first adopted by Oscar Wilde. They pinpoint every stray strand and split end in the bright natural light that filters through the loft studio's windows.
