The stylists at Pin Up Hair Salon don’t want to transform their clients in quiet. They want to engage their clients and know what look they desire before cutting off split ends, adding color, or creating a permanent wave. They also like to educate their clients on how to get their desired look at home.
Indy Laser Lipo takes over for failed diet and exercise attempts by shrinking fat cells with lasers. Technicians apply two LipoLaser paddles directly to problem areas⎯including the sides, chin, arms, or thighs⎯allowing the noninvasive lasers to penetrate down to fat cells, where they break the cells’ membranes and cause them to release their contents into the body and shrink. After undergoing treatments three times a week for six weeks, clients may expect to lose several inches from the targeted areas, giving them the confidence to show off their swimsuit-ready body and fit into their old high-school locker.
In her 30 years as a licensed cosmetologist, Donna Bretzman has owned and managed two salons and shared her long-earned know-how with students at several cosmetology schools. She most enjoys helping a client find his or her own unique look and implementing that look with precision cutting and styling. A talented colorist as well, Donna punches up hues with color treatments, highlights, and color correction, all performed in a private setting.
With a crew of well-trained shear-wielders at its helm, Allure Salon revives, revamps, and relaxes patrons in a chic, romantically lit atmosphere. Mane makeovers commence in the shampoo room, where locks are lushly lathered with a deep-conditioning treatment that will help soothe them of their frizzy tendencies and idolatry of painter Bob Ross (a $30 value). Next, the savvy head artists will assist in selecting the right cut for each client's face shape, lifestyle, and personality (a $34–$43 value). Using an arsenal of top-notch tools and skills acquired through advanced workshops, the strand sculptors will then go to work snipping, shaping, and styling overgrown neck shrubs into the bobs, pixies, layers, or trapezoids they were always meant to be.
Hairstylist Courtny Ellis’s 26 years of experience have helped him hone his ability to find a flattering cut and color for any client’s face shape and skin tone. The Redken–approved stylist works out of a salon drenched in natural sunlight, which provides the ideal lighting to see the depth of fresh highlights or to help hair to sprout flowery blooms at its ends. In addition to traditional cut and color services, Courtny also alters hair's texture with deep-conditioning treatments.
