Inside a white bungalow-style building on McNeil Drive, Selma Berlet, Kerem Ozen, and Sarah Starling, a trio of devoted hair artisans, make up the core staff that engineers their business' meticulous brand of highlights, perms, and other hair services. Regular clients arrive for prescheduled appointments with their preferred stylist knowing that the principled staff members refuse to rush through any hair, nail, or beauty service. Kerem, for example, honed his methodical approach during the course of a 35-year career spent in the hairstyling trenches, where he learned the value of thoroughness and taking your scissors out for dinner and a movie once in a while. Along with his colleagues, the master-level stylist and color specialist wields an arsenal of pro-grade products by Redken, Paul Mitchell, and the in-house line Kenneth and Russ.
