Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Certified master educator for Brazilian blowouts, Dallia Garza has cultivated a keen eye for style that she wields while working with clients to revamp looks during hair and nail services. She has been a nail artist and stylist for more than 20 years, with four years of experience doing nails and hair for fashion shows and photoshoots. In her cozy studio tucked inside Secret Beauty Hair Salon, the eponymous stylist behind Dallia's Hair And Nail Studio sculpts tresses into works of art with basic cuts and updos and adds dramatic depth with highlights and coloring. For appendages in need of pampering, she smoothes away rough edges during manicure services before topping digits with regular polish, nail art, or a special Shellac formula that lasts up to 14 days, giving clients a break from touchups or constantly wearing steel gauntlets.
Skin savant Stacy McClure tackles epidermal issues with her menu of facials, waxing, and tanning treatments. Hydrating masks unclog pores, gentle chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions buff away dead or damaged skin cells, and back facials detoxify and protect posterior-facing skin. Waxing sessions eradicate fuzz from the face and body with top-shelf waxes before calming lotions soothe freshly pruned skin. McClure’s head- to-toe airbrushing services enhance physiques with golden hues, and her lash-tinting procedures draw attention to faces easier than training butterflies to alight on cheekbones.
Layla Bouley aims to boost her clients’ self-esteem and peace of mind using her skills in aesthetics. She refurbishes wrinkled, acne-riddled, oily, and excessively dry skin during services that range from microdermabrasion treatments to chemical peels. She also combats stubborn hair on lips and chins using bowls of warm wax and applies eyelash extensions to help make third eyes pop.
From behind her styling chair at Designer Glitz and Glamour, Lisa Ross cares for natural and chemically treated hair. With the aid of products by Matrix, Silkology, and Clio, she snips strands, colors hair in vivid hues, and styles tresses into elegant updos.
After graduating from college, Joscelyn Laurence found that she was unhappy with her career choice and didn’t know what to do about it. That uncertainty faded, however, when she decided to take a leap of faith and switch careers. The jump landed her at Paul Mitchell The School Dallas, where she learned the ins and outs of the beauty industry. Today, the experienced stylist has stepped into her latest role as owner of Outside the Lines Salon, where she treats each client with individualized attention as she snips hair into the latest styles. Joscelyn also smoothes frizz with a restorative Awapuhi Wild Ginger KeraTriplex treatment, adds hair flair with rooster feathers, and lends manes prismatic pop with a caramelizing technique that results in honey-colored tones and free drinks from candy tycoons at the bar.
