Wearing a flower behind your ear can add vibrancy to any hairstyle, but the stylists at FLiP Salon go a step further?they infuse hair with sunflower oil. Botanical extracts from castor, jojoba, and other plants are the calling cards of their Aveda color products. They meticulously apply the color, creating looks with names such as Sunkissed Blonde?a mix of highlights and lowlights that emulates natural flaxen hair more convincingly than a wig made from straw.

That particular shade is owner Shannon Kitchen-Juarez's signature color. Shannon has created it after more than 25 years of experience in the salon business and training from acclaimed names such as Toni&Guy and Bumble and bumble. She and her team strive to accommodate more than just those who want blond locks. Their color ranges from subtle to bright and audacious, and includes ombre highlights. Brazilian blowouts, updos, and haircuts round out their list of services.

This attentiveness has sharpened the stylists' expertise with short styles, earning the salon a place in 7x7's list of Four SF Salons Specializing in Short Cuts.
