"A good consultation goes a long way." So says Heidi Taylor, who honed her craft in New Orleans before opening Salon Allure here in Pensacola. The motto means that Heidi establishes good communication with her clients immediately, so that each salon service fulfills their personal vision of themselves and matches their unique personality. Taylor has found her mantra to be so effective that she has spread it to her team of five beauty techs, which includes an airbrush-tanning artist and trained massage therapist. Each of her hairstylists brandishes Goldwell hair color—a personal favorite of Taylor—as well as the antioxidant-rich Moroccanoil haircare line as they beautify 'dos with cuts, colors, and highlights. The salon's resident massage therapist personalizes treatments by using specific modalities, such as trigger point and hot stone, to ease out body aches and pains. Alongside a spectrum of salon and spa services, the contemporary beauty studio is outfitted with a petite boutique area that is lined with trendy jewelry, Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, and hand-painted portraits of Rapunzel wearing an impatient smirk.
Some children may innocently point out a person?s imperfections, but as a kid, Lisa Sturt knew how to work on them. As she grew older, she received training in New Jersey, New York, Paris, Chicago, and LA. Now, she brings her talents to Florida in her own salon.
At Brava Hair Studio and Day Spa, Lisa helms a staff of beauty professionals who remove dead skin cells with brown sugar or sea salt. They also swipe away unwanted hair using Lycon Gold wax, which is designed for all skin types. Her hairstylists follow a five-step approach to salon services. It starts with getting to know the client, then suggesting styles based on texture and shape of the hair, educating the client on how to keep hair strong and healthy, and finally, teaching the client step-by-step techniques to create the same hairstyle at home or change it after a spy on the run has adopted the client?s previous haircut.
