Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I suggest a different style that is suitable.
Fashionable hairstyles are constantly changing. How do you keep up-to-date on popular trends?
I go to hair shows, take classes, and watch YouTube.
What's the biggest mistake you see clients make when they style their hair at home?
They use too much heat.
Led by senior stylist and owner Liz Sarvinas, the expert team at Hair by Ell gives hair a fresh start with Paul Mitchell, It's a 10, and Joico products during haircuts and deep conditionings. After a stylist seats a client before his or her own personal, triangular haircutting station, the two work together to pick a fitting style, working through options such as ombre coloring, asymmetrical bangs, or a perfect cowlick. Once hair is shed of split ends and extra weight, clients can choose to add body with extensions or depth with highlights or a perm.
At Lloyd's Beauty Salon, total transformation is possible. Sure, the stylists can perform a simple trim or cut coifs for men, but they can get imaginative with relaxers, permanent waves, a range of weave extensions. To support hair health, clients can opt for argan hot oil applications or protein treatments. Kids can update looks with cornrows or pin-ups, just in time for their first interview at the lemonade stand.
For more than 20 years, Hair It Iz's Deja "Dee Dee" Walker has been weaving, wrapping, and generally beautifying 'dos. Along with the boatloads of training already under her belt, she keeps up with the latest trends and techniques, specializing in short, eye-catching styles accented by spikes, tight curls, and flips. Beyond her signature specialty, her services include cuts, color treatments, and weaves.
An Aveda Concept salon and spa, EcoBliss beautifies and becalms with eco-friendly products and services that protect both clients and the environment. Each environmentally conscious service comes with a comforting cup of tea, a scalp, neck, and shoulder massage, and an unspoken invitation to Mother Earth's cocktail lounge. Refurbish frowsy frontispieces with a strand-sculpting cut snipped by an Aveda-certified Michelangelo of mops ($35), or pamper paws with an earth-minded pedicure ($55). A half-hour Elemental Nature facial ($50) will revivify visages eroded from the stress of work, weather, and multiple sprays from trick boutonnieres. EcoBliss also provides an array of coloring, waxing, and brow services to meet guests' glamorizing needs.
The stylists at Xtreme Hair Salon firmly believe that a good haircut translates to a good mood. They've been cheering clients for more than 12 years at their respective stations, flanked by warm, sand-colored walls and products from Wella, Sebastian and Kenra. Each of their appointments commences with a consultation, which outlines aesthetic goals before anyone reaches for the scissors. Because the staff constantly adds to their education by attending workshops and physics lectures on the pigtail constant, visitors can trust in their ever-evolving expertise.
Every stylist onsite has different specializations, including razor cuts, updos, and custom coloring. However, the salon's services aren't limited to the scalp; employees can also wax unwanted hair, apply cosmetics for special occasions, and airbrush bodies with sunless spray tans.
