At Hot Looks Hair Salon, stylists aim to discover each client's personality and create a haircut that tells his or her story. Led by 30-year industry expert Carol Colantuono, the team specializes in adding texture and shape with razor cuts and accentuating natural hues with color and highlighting techniques. Colantuono designs clients' looks with a sense of style influenced by her apprenticeship with stylist Barry Leonard at Crimper, one of the top salons in Center City, and all of her staff have undergone extensive training in the Vidal Sassoon and Sexy Hair lines. She hands clients a complimentary cup of coffee or glass of wine before beginning specialty treatments such as hair extensions that add length and volume or feather extensions that help clients blend in with migrating flocks of ornithologists.
Helmed by sisters Chris Powell and Linda DelRosso—a duo with more than 35 years of salon experience—Hairtique Designers Inc. revitalizes hair and skin with an array of salon and spa services.

The salon builds on the sisters' 35 years of experience and keeps current on coloring and styling trends through its dedication to continuing education. Their tenacious talents earned them a 2012 reader's choice award in Trib Total Media for best beauty salon in Pleasant Hills.
