Deluxe Hair & Boutique’s barbers, stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians have clients covered from head to toe in the beauty department. They color hair and keep it smooth with the help of Schwarzkopf, Keratin Complex, and Moroccanoil products. In the mani-pedi section, a technician paints fingernails and toenails using bottles of brightly colored polish. The aesthetician takes care of skin, rehydrating faces and waxing everything from legs to wings.
Like any passionate artist, Shannon practices her craft in all areas of life. When she's not at home painting or creating handmade jewelry, she mans a styling station at Jhon Josephson Salon. Here, she draws from fifteen years of experience styling for both men and women, cutting and coloring their hair, and smoothing visages with facial waxing. Besides being trained with Framesi, TIGI, Joico, and Redken, she also beautifies guests with professional products from Aquage, CHI, and Enjoy—all of which currently line the salon’s shelves. Shannon seldom double-books appointments, allowing her to pay careful attention to the looks of each patron during highlighting sessions or games of peekaboo.
Whenever her kids' bangs began to fall into their eyes, Paula Thurman couldn't help but feel a twinge of anxiety. She knew a trip to the hairdresser was in store, which meant an hour of squirming, whining, and complaining about itchy bits of fallen hair. But it was on one such trip that inspiration struck. As Paula told reporters from the Kansas City Business Journal, ?as soon as I walked [into the salon], a fire went off in me, and I knew it. I saw it and thought, ?I can do this.?? Although she had no experience running a salon or business, Paula had plenty experience keeping kids happy. She decided to combine that with keen motherly intuition and lessons learned from a few business classes to design a special salon for energetic youngsters?Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids was born.
Today, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids has sprouted locations across Kansas, Missouri, and into New Mexico. Amid the salons' mad splashes of color, cheerful stylists snip up new styles and arrange locks into playful pigtails and beehives that are perfectly sized to hide uneaten vegetables. While they work, their young clients sit in chairs shaped like race cars, watching movies or playing video games. As kids are getting cuts, moms can shop for a toy, bow, or bottle of root-beer-scented shampoo for their wee ones in the onsite boutique.
The nail technicians at Design Envy don't simply apply monochrome coats of polish. They're true artists, carefully painting nails with bold stripes, vibrant patterns, and discreet final-exam answer keys. But their services aren't limited to the hands and feet; they also perform rejuvenating facials, waxing treatments, and full-on makeovers.
