Hair is the priority at Blown Salon. In fact, it's all they do. By not stacking his service menu with indulgent extras such as mani-pedis or facials, owner and head stylist Mason Shupe guarantees that the attention of his staff won't be needlessly diverted away from strands waiting to be shaded and sculpted into master works of hair art. Previously an education artist for Sebastian International, Shupe has made it his mission to mentor up-and-coming stylists and has arranged his team––who together comprise more than 100 years of experience––into a tier system that sees junior stylists learning from master hair artists, and master hair artists learning to hone their skills while standing atop a human pyramid. Beyond cuts, Shupe's salon offers the latest keratin-based straightening treatments and helps heads to adopt a new hue with low-ammonia hair color by Italian-based Screen.
