Designers Hair & Makeup Studio's stylists have seasoned their scissors with years of experience cutting, coloring, and styling all types of hair. Their hairstyling and makeup artistry combine to prettify ladies before weddings, dates, and girls' nights, and eyebrow shaping and eyelash extensions grant the ability to out-wink a flirty giraffe. The studio also offers skincare and makeup lessons, as well as haircare classes that teach how to tend to relaxed, natural, or curly hair.

Stylists commit themselves to updating their skills in order to stay at the forefront of current trends. Along with free consultations, the team presents products from Moroccanoil and Aveda, a fully stocked refreshment bar, and free WiFi—which stands for wireless fishing, aka, achieving the impossible.
Relaxation master Leslie Newberry knows that, while stress is universal, escaping it is personal. That's why she tailors each of Hairdressers Inc. relaxing services to meet the unique needs of every client. She and her team shorten hair with cuts, upgrade plumage with feather add-ons, or lengthen manes with Lox hair extensions that come in 39 color options. Makeup artists accentuate features with professional applications and strategy sessions that are clients with take-home tips and color charts. The studio's nail technicians also stay busy, offering everything from simple trims and skin exfoliation to deep wraps and paraffin treatments that help refresh hands and feet after morning jogs through a network of drainage pipes.
The sound scissors make as they slowly but confidently close over a thatch of hair is as comforting to Brandy Wyrick as a child’s security blanket. She first heard that sound at a young age as her mother ran the gleaming edges through clients’ manes in her salon. Brandy spent weekends playing with mannequin heads as a child, later graduating to real heads at Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy. Today, she recreates those same snipping sounds inside Hair By The Square and during any open mic event she comes across.
