Bulbs circle the ceiling of MarKirk Salon, pouring light down onto black styling chairs as clients watch their hair transform in the reflection of a giant ornamental mirror. The salon's talented stylists use Redken and Chromatics hair products as they clip and sculpt their way through the hairstyles of men, women, and children, transforming overgrown and disparate locks into cohesive 'dos. The team members' extensive backgrounds and training renders them capable of much more than scissor-wielding, however: They draw from Keratin smoothing certifications, Japanese straightening licensing, and balayage highlighting expertise to perform the salon's many additional treatments. The stylists also assist with hair extensions and help brides perfect their looks to impress guests or overshadow the plastic bride humbly smiling from atop the wedding cake.
