Fashionable hairstyles are constantly changing. How do you keep up-to-date on popular trends?
I am constantly learning new braid techniques through seminars and paid videos to keep up with new trends. I host a blog that provides free vital information on haircare, skincare, and nutritional needs to help clients upkeep their beauty regimens.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Soon to come to Braids by Jessica is a more varied stock of extension hair for styles so that clients don't have to bring their own extension hair, a Mary Kay cosmetic inventory, and an additional braid assistant to provide for a faster one-stop shop experience for your haircare, makeup, and extension hair selection needs.
Do you do natural hairstyles? If so, what services do you offer?
Cornrows, dreadlocs, flat twist, kinky twist, and individual braids/plaits, all with or without extensions, as well as tree braids, crochet braids, senegalese twist, fishtail braids, and box braids, all with extensions.
G Patton Salon's stylist Jessica Abrahante specializes in giving hair the perfect color. Of course, over her 25 years in the hair industry she's picked up some other tricks as well, including Bumble and Bumble Cutting Classes certification, Wella Color certification, and a creative cutting and coloring course diploma from Toni & Guy in London. Deftly wielding her scissors, she refashions shaggy mops into chic styles or clips away that one lock that keeps getting in a customer's eyes as a warning for the others. Color services include revamping single-process treatments as well as more subtle highlighting, adding eye-catching texture to 'dos.
The master stylists at Visions Hair Studio beautify ladies and gents with haircuts, color treatments, mani-pedis, waxing, and airbrush-tanning services. Top-quality products by Bö Essentials and L'Oréal fuel each spa or hair treatment, resulting in a more lavish experience than diving into a pool of bonbons. In addition to taming wild manes, the salon helps out a number of animal charities by coordinating donations and hosting adoption programs.
G Patton Salon's team of nearly 30 stylists packs an impressive collection of degrees and certifications, and Mikaela Spencer is no exception. A graduate of Regency Beauty Institute, she has earned major pigment cred: Goldwell, Subtil, Kuene, and Redken have all granted her color certifications, as have Coppola Keratin and one very enthusiastic middle-school English teacher. She and her fellow stylists combine their significant knowhow and artistic instincts with the salon's staple of products from Label.M, a professional line of salon elixirs that help keep hair healthy and stylish.
Tru Passion Cosmetics and Hair Studios's owner Sybil Triplett wants to do more than make her clients' hair beautiful--she also wants to make it healthy. In addition to providing a slew of hair care services including cuts, color treatments, and cornrows, Sybil's works to educate her clients about their coif. She teaches guests how to maintain hairs' inherent strength by treating it well and making it to 40 push-ups before bed.
