Trends come and go, which is why the stylists at Fossa Hair Studio keep abreast of their constantly changing industry with Schwarzkopf's continuous education classes. Guided by their ceaseless schooling, the team masterfully uses both Schwarzkopf's original product line, as well as its Osis line, to expertly style hair into simple everyday looks or fun and innovative colour designs. Frizzy-haired clients will take a special liking to the crew's stock of Moroccanoil; the anti-humectant locks in moisture and shine all while blocking frizz and stale styles better than living in a human-sized hamster bubble. Once highlights and colour treatments are set and split-ends sheared, the crew enhances facial features with full makeup applications.
Fossa's space is almost as elegant and chic as its stylist's work. Simple taupe walls flank three sides of the salon, while rustic bricks create the fourth portion. Crystal-like chandeliers sparkle over the space's black styling chairs, which face black-framed mirrors. Adjacent to that area, customers can lean back in plush leather reclining chairs in the salon's esthetics space. Customers relax amid limestone walls and infloor heating for a variety of services such as nail and waxing services, eyelash extensions, facials, and makeup applications.
Celia Piper, master stylist and proprietor of Flair Home Hair Studio, employs her extensive experience working with senior stylists and colour technicians and her continuing education in advanced cutting and colouring techniques in order to help her clients find their most becoming hairstyles. She operates from the comfort of her own home, eschewing what she refers to as the "assembly-line" feel of downtown salons, and her keen eyes and hands perform precision cuts, stylings, and colour services with Moroccanoil and Schwarzkopf products. A complimentary consultation precedes all visitations, during which time clients can disclose their desired hairstyle and the exact number of marshmallows they can stuff into their mouth.
When beautifying the heads and bodies of his clientele, Yetmir Keqa of Salon Yetmir draws from eastern European roots, an apprenticeship at James Brett Coiffure, and a natural stockpile of dry wit and sincerity that helps to ease minds. During hair services for men, women, and youth, Mr. Keqa caters to his subjects' personalities and penchants for auditioning for shampoo commercials, using products by Davines and colour infused with milk protein. Facials and massages soothe away stress and brighten countenances, and mani-pedis leave extremities ready for first-impression handshakes. While clients admire glossy black treatment chairs and full-length, thick-bordered mirrors, they sip a complimentary macchiato that lightens the mood and keeps hair awake long enough to say goodbye to its split ends.
