Monica Bhatia has worked in the fashion industry for years, styling subjects for photo shoots and even prepping models for the runway at New York Fashion Week, according to her website. At Hair Tech III in Richardson, she and her team of stylists frame clients' faces with chic, flattering hairstyles. They clip precise cuts, infuse tresses with gleaming highlights and full color, and perform Brazilian blowouts that tame frizz so hairs will stop picking up radio signals. Patrons can also opt for waxing sessions that leave smooth expanses of skin on the face and body.
Penny Whittington is a whiz at getting rid of overgrown hair. She uses her trusty pair of scissors or a miniature weed whacker to cut off split ends and unwanted length, transforming manes into new styles from classic to cutting-edge. At Studio Nouveau, Penny and the rest of the stylists support charities such as American Cancer Society and Locks of Love.
Mandy Mizzell has been a licensed stylist in the Dallas area for six years and currently works out of the upscale Firewheel Salons space. Inside her private treatment suite, she nimbly uses scissors to create one-of-a-kind looks that fit each client's aesthetic tastes and personality. In addition to haircuts and color treatments, Mandy specializes in hair extensions that can help people get the look of added length without having to sew scarves into their hair.
Linda Evans wields the scissors behind Sassy Shears at The Salons at Bella Suites, continuing the work has occupied her hands for more than 30 years. Although she snips away anywhere from 1 to 15 inches of hair on any given day—leaving clients lighter and more stylish—her signature service is color. She prefers Paul Mitchell color products for their thorough coverage, and they pair nicely with her preferred moisturizing conditioner from It's A 10. While she works, she provides clients with complimentary beverages to sip on, as well as the occasional bit of sample product to take home and experiment with by making one's pet shih tzu resemble Johnny Depp as closely as possible.
A specialty salon and spa for young girls, Sweet and Sassy offers girl-sized treatments in a fun, girly setting. The Party Princess package gives the royal treatment with a mini-mani, mini-pedi, and party updo. The digit-revitalizing procedure includes a soak in the spa tub, scented sparkly lotion, and choice of rings, toe rings, and nail art. The updo provides shimmery hair spray and a signature glitter star that rivals any Christmas tree topper or eerily beautiful supernova. Once the makeover is complete, girls can strut the catwalk, capture their new look with a picture, and draw each other using charcoal briquettes for pens and sheets of plywood for paper.
The stylists at Method Hair Studio share 30 years of industry experience, which they put to use during cutting, coloring, and chemical treatments. They’ll craft everything from cutting-edge to classical cuts and then accentuate the new hairdo with professional highlights or color. On top of keratin treatments and updos, they also offer ear piercing and makeup services.
