Jennifer Stockdale has completed Redken and TIGI color classes, as well as learned trade secrets from celebrity makeup artist James Ryder. She puts this extensive education to use pampering clients with classic and cutting-edge haircuts and coloring techniques. The multi-talented stylist doesn?t just apply her expertise to hair, though?she also waxes off unsightly fuzz on upper lips and eyebrow regions, as well as expertly applies makeup for days at the office or nights on the town.
Tucked inside Sola Salon Studios, Zach Raph Hair's decor is practical and stylish, much like the stylist's work. Walls peek out from glass shelves filled with products by Redken and Neuma and a window view overlooking Lake and Lyndale. Amidst these mod details, Zach sets to work snipping split ends into sleek layers, adding bright ombre highlights, lengthening locks with extensions, and styling hair into Bio Ionic blowouts.
When nails need a helping hand, Laura Gronholz is there. At her post within Amenity's Hair Studio, she draws on years of experience to groom cuticles, shape fingernails, and gently remove piranhas affixed to big toes. During her signature spa pedicure, she also removes calluses and softens skin with warm towels and a hydrating mask.
At her self-named salon, stylist and Redken master colorist Cyril champions healthy hair. She has experience with hair of all ethnicities and stays abreast of the latest beauty trends in order to impart clients with the looks they envision. She also specializes in chemical relaxing, extensions, weaves, conditioning treatments, and facial waxing.
Hannah and Jennifer dig deep into clients’ psyches to extract their innermost style desires, much like Freud, who double majored in fashion. Regardless of the individual client’s lifestyle and preferences, they can design a new look that suits them, since they’re trained in both current trends and classic techniques. That doesn't mean they use outdated products, though. They pour out Wella Professionals, Moroccanoil, Brocato, and Kaaral products to nurture tresses. The duo activates the power of these lock elixirs to render haircuts and coloring, but also transforms customers' appearances with waxing and tinting services—something hairy cars need, too.
