For more than 14 years, master stylist Dennis Lee has developed expertise in hairstyling while hopping from one prestigious salon to another, participating in Passion magazine photo shoots, working at fashion weeks in New York and LA, and styling the hair of royalty. Now at Armando, a Joshua Christopher salon, he cuts and styles hair based on individual texture, thickness, and proximity to balloons. He uses color techniques grounded in geometry and renders keratin treatments to reduce frizz while increasing shine. With every service, he takes into consideration the client’s needs, desires, and individual characteristics.
Karen Clinkenbeard’s 25 years as a hairstylist have taught her many things, but one sticks out: a cut isn’t over until the hair has been dried and polished. She believes that this extra step elevates a haircut into a work of art, and this commitment to detail extends to all the services inside of her salon, Studio K. Here, Karen and her stylists offer haircuts, creative coloring, and their specialty—Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy, which sends keratin deep into the hair cuticle, removing 95% of frizz and 100% of hair rebellion. Free beverages and WiFi are available as additional perks.
Katie Shumway believes that hair is an investment, so it should be treated with care and love. This is a philosophy she developed during her education at LA’s Toni & Guy and Vidal Sassoon, where she learned to tailor hair to the individuals' face shapes, personalities, and lifestyles. Katie transforms tresses out of Furioso Salon. In addition to offering cuts and color treatments, she can nix unwanted hair from brow boundaries with a signature waxing session.
Wendi Spaeth has been cutting, coloring, and styling hair for more than 20 years, but it would be a mistake to think she's old-fashioned or stuck in her ways. Rather, she keeps up with the latest developments in her field by engaging in continuing education, a fact that allows her to provide trendy cuts and cutting-edge color services.
