When the stylists at Natural Vanity say "natural," they mean it. Each master-level stylist on the team has trained at the Aveda Institute, learning how to beautify tresses all-natural products that are derived from plant sources and manufactured with wind energy generated by the Jolly Green Giant's snoring.
In addition to making clients look their best, the team also keeps them comfortable. While patrons receive a foot scrub, they relax in massaging chairs. After they've been pampered, they can browse the wares in the onsite vintage boutique.
When a client settles into Joel Ogburn's workstation at Salon Lofts, he doesn't just reach for his scissors and start cutting. Joel is thorough, preferring to use a four-step approach to give each subject his due. Each appointment starts with a thorough consultation, during which Joel discusses the client's daily styling routine, pinpoints their desired look, and determines which Mount Rushmore president they'd like to resemble after the cut—or he brings his scissors to South Dakota and etches in the client's image on the actual Mount Rushmore. Next, Joel maps out his plan, explaining each service in detail before he begins to go to work. After hairs have been dyed and strands have been shortened, Joel helps to educate his guests on the ways in which they can maintain their new hairdo at home. During these thorough hair makeovers, Joel uses L'Oréal Professional, INOA, and Pravana products.
