What?s your favorite part about your job?
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
In 2005. I grew up as an artist, but wanted to express art through nails, makeup, and tattoos.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
BS in hospitality management and entertainment management, and Florida nail technician and skin care specialist licenses.
Cosmetologist Marie Charles brings more than 20 years of experience in the beauty and fashion industry to her salon, Marie Hair Designs. In addition to working for top fashion names, such as Chanel and Armani, she?s perfected looks for styling shows across South Florida at Neiman Marcus and Saks. Tapping into this vast knowledge base, she beautifies her clients with everything from cuts and styles to hair-extension weaves and keratin straightening treatments.
The staffers at New Creations Hair Salon & Spa specialize in beautifying men and women from head to toe. The stylists revamp 'dos with on-trends cuts and color with the aid of Goldwell products. Beyond hair, they tend to the rest of the body with waxing, mani-pedis, and permanent makeup services.
The technicians at Brow Obsession by anarkali specialize in threading, waxing, facials, henna art and makeup. They use hypoallergenic cotton thread to remove unwanted hair, and because they don't want to waste customers' time, clients can book their appointments online 24/7.
Stepping through the door of 1160 Hair is like tiptoeing into another dimension. Pink cherry blossoms hang from the ceiling in defiance of the physics of the real world, and a big-eyed girl and the Mad Hatter peer from swirling paintings on the wall.
Owner Wendy Kahn envisioned her salon as a fairytale-like experience, a whimsical place where aesthetic fantasies become reality with hair care, facials, and mani-pedis. Today, she presides over a salon that indeed looks plucked straight from Alice in Wonderland or a Tim Burton film. Depending on what room guests are in, they'll experience a different aesthetic. In the manicure area, pink velvet seats slide up to black-and-gold tables. In the shampoo room, with artificial-turf floors, a plastic trophy moose head watches from the wall above chairs that are the bright red of a fire truck discovering a “kick me” note on its back. In the salon area, clients sit in white leather chairs in front of gilded antique mirrors, donning leather-print smocks to protect their clothing from errant hairs.
Just as its name promises, Xtension Xpress is dedicated to quickly giving guests longer, fuller locks. After purchasing top-quality hair in-store or turning locks they brought with them, patrons sit back as double-track installation weaves extra strands into hair. The salon's custom extension procedure outfits customers with their extensions as quickly and efficiently as possible, like April Fool's day at the DMV. Other coiffure-boosting services include feather extensions, perms, and trims that clean up 'dos.
