Robin Drolla Melancon and her staff pride themselves on handling any emergency that pops up at Nola Hair Salon. Her stylists have performed hair and makeup for six bridesmaids that needed to be wedding-ready by noon, and have squeezed in a shampoo and blowout at 7 p.m. for a businesswoman who had just gotten off a plane from Singapore and had a late dinner meeting.
