At Shehla's Beauty Salon & Spa, a friendly face greets customers right as they walk through the door. After sipping on complimentary cups of soothing hot tea in the waiting area, clients are eventually led back their styling stations, where hair artists get to work performing customized cuts and color treatments. More than just a destination for haircare, the salon space also achieves spa-like status thanks to service offerings such as waxing, threading, facials, and massages.
An enthusiastic and passionate stylist, Michol approaches each client with their individuality in mind. That’s why he keeps 93 colors always within reach, mixing and matching to create subtle hues and shine that belong solely to the client he’s working on. Having trained under Thomas LaDage, a platform artist that performed demonstrations at industry shows, he understands how to work with complex treatments to create the right look that flatters clients’ facial symmetry, complexion, eye color, or the vase their hand is currently stuck in. When performing services such as updos or chemical straightening, he also relies on his knowledge and expert application of hair products from brands such as Paul Brown, which are made with Hawaiian plants and flowers that contain healing and replenishing properties.
Within Oni Hair Studio lies a space called the Lather Lounge. Set off from the main salon, the room invites clients to relax with a drink while basking in the twinkly light of a chandelier or making contorted faces into a mirror framed in ornate moulding. Glam decorative touches extend throughout the salon, helping to uphold owner Shawn Dyer's goal to provide every guest with a relaxing retreat.
Oni Hair Studio is a multicultural salon, with stylists who are proud of their ability to work with all types of hair. They offer salon services such as natural transitioning, extensions, and haircuts that flatter brain shape, educating clients on how to maintain looks at home. Beyond working with hair, Oni's team also relieves guests' tension through massage.
