At Brilliant Hair Studio, co-owner Kerry Dixon—a nail technician with 20 years of experience—and her staff add some pizzazz to acrylic-nail additions with nail candy accessories, adorning tensomes with glitter, crushed seashells, flowers, california raisins, and rhinestones. Alternately, for the mani-pedi, staff buff and shape digit hats before Shellacking them with one of more than 24 smudgeless shades. Technicians then move to pieds to slough off dry skin, trim cuticles, and shape toe talons before massaging wearied heels and calves. Finishing touches include a Rockstar gel and glitter application for feet more posh than employing a jaguar to drive your Jaguar.
Brilliant Hair Studio
Owners Kerry Dixon and Molly Erickson met over a salon receptionists’ desk. Molly was working her way through school behind the desk, and Kerry was painting nails in front of it. They dreamed of creating their own salon, and eight years later opened Brilliant Hair Studio, a Redken-concept salon. At the studio, Kerry and Molly manage a team of stylists and nail technicians who attend frequent Redken symposiums to keep their techniques and secret stylist handshakes current. Funky red swivel chairs and a striped orange wall abut shelves of the salon’s signature products, as well as a jewelry boutique with unconventional and refined necklaces.
