With more than 35 years of industry experience under her belt, salon owner Susan Randall has arranged the manes of TV personalities and recording artists. Her passion for continuing education led her to become one of Tennessee's first specialists in Great Lengths hair extensions. Susan's zeal for ongoing education also inspires her highly experienced team—including two Redken master specialists—to annually replenish their hairstyling toolboxes with new techniques and products. The resulting expertise comes across in thorough consultations, during which staffers combine the client's vision with their own savvy to design customized clips, natural and dimensional color, or functional beehives.
Within Blue Dahlia Salon, teal and pink walls complement black-and-white checkerboard flooring, and white paper lanterns merge their light with round bulbs that frame Hollywood-inspired vanity mirrors at each styling station. Whoever designed the salon didn't mind bucking convention—and neither do the Evo concept salon's daring stylists. Platinum-blond pixie cuts and bold magenta streaks add a fashion-forward tinge to their edgier clients, and even their traditional updos and ringlet styles often benefit from an innovative touch.
