Jodene Gomez founded Evolution Salon with a single goal in mind: to treat individuals to hair and skin services tailored to their needs. As she has learned from her diverse base of clientele—"I have customers that are tattooed guys and customers that are 70-year-old ladies," she recently explained to the Valley Journal—those needs are not always the same. To achieve the look that each client has in mind, Gomez’s stylists augment their own skills with several lines of professional salon products. Among their favorite product lines are the plant-based White Sands and the Zerran hair-smoothing system, the latter of which straightens locks without the use of formaldehyde or a repurposed electrical outlet. Before or after their treatments, clients can browse the salon’s inventory of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics and MidiQueen handbags.
While Blue Ox Hair Color Salon boasts membership in the Professional Beauty Association and the National Salon Association, its stylists have represented the business by competing in the North American Hairstyling Awards every year since 2004. These experts in the field specialize in accentuating their chic cuts with a wide variety of color treatments, such as corrective color, balayage, and ammonia-free color gloss. In doing so, they call upon both their years of experience and products from high-end brands such as Paul Mitchell.
California runs through Kellie June’s veins. She was born on the Central Coast, and only left briefly to get a professional skincare education and beautify models on photo shoots and fashion shows in Austin. But as soon as she returned, she quickly funneled her newfound skills into helping people in her home state. Today, she flaunts her professional techniques in rejuvenating facials and peels, elegant makeup services, and wink-boosting eyelash extensions and tinting procedures. She also excels at waxing, wielding a gentle touch and thorough post-care instructions for each of her bikini, Brazilian, body, and facial waxing services to ensure skin stays smooth and comfortable.
