As guests leisurely recline on leather salon chairs with a glass of wine, stylists craft stunning new ‘dos using scissors, flat irons, and premium products from brands such as Redkin and Moroccan Oil. These hairdressers, who keep up with the latest trends through consistent training, also perform other salon services, including deep conditioning treatments, facials, lash and hair extensions, and waxings.
Jerome Hagood loved his job at Hair Art & Co so much that he decided to stay for good. So he and his wife Rhonda bought the business in 2004. Seven years later, they moved to a new location, where they continue to beautify clients just as the salon’s original owner had since 1983. The current team includes hairstylists, aestheticians, and a horde of invisible friends. Together, they keep customers looking sharp with haircuts, mani-pedis, facials, waxing, and more.
From within Carlos and Bella Salon, stylist Lina Bahou brings shine and structure to coifs. She repairs damaged hair by lopping off split ends and nourishing strands with deep-conditioning treatments. During color treatments, Lina helps clients select a hue to complement their skin tone and lifestyle.
At Drybar, a pair of scissors or hair-coloring foil is nowhere to be found. That?s because the business?s founder, Alli Webb, opened the shop strictly for blowouts after her in-home business skyrocketed. Featured extensively in the media, each of the more than 37 white-hued, airy shops revolves around a center bar where customers sit for around 45 minutes as stylists blow-dry, straighten, and curl their hair. From a menu booklet, clients select a cocktail-themed hairstyle, such as The Mai Tai, which imparts beachy waves, and The Manhattan, which streamlines locks with a sleek finish that mimics the straight lines of downtown New York and can be outfitted with a tiny doorman who hails cabs for you. The staff at Drybar also crafts updos, travels on location for an additional fee, offers high-end products and tools available for purchase, and tallies bar tabs so that customers can pay for multiple blowouts at once.
Shoppers happening past Mina's Salon's glass storefront at The Shops at Willow Bend will catch glimpses of master stylists cutting and coloring coifs against an elegant backdrop of black-and-white damask. The team's 26 years of service and proficiency in hair telepathy make selecting an appropriate product for each set of tresses simple, with colorfully stocked shelves offering the latest nourishing elixirs from Kérastase Paris and restorative hair masks by Moroccanoil. When not busy sculpting strands, the staff also pampers overworked hands and overdanced feet with relaxing massages and warm paraffin dips and leaves skin silky smooth with waxing services that expand southwards from the brow.
