You don't need to read their bios to realize that the stylists at S.A.F.E. Salon were once beauty-industry educators. All you need to do is sit in one of their chairs for any service, whether it's a cut, color, or a keratin smoothing treatment, and listen as they regale you with tips and tricks for post-salon care. With 19 years of collective styling experience, Josh Elkins and Brandy Deason both have a well-honed eye for fashion, and they whip up glamorous hairdos infused with color and texture. In addition to a stylish new look, the emphasis on education means that clients also leave with expert advice on at-home maintenance and how to keep from fraternizing with shower drains.
