French Twist Salon
As a hairstyle, the french twist transforms a humdrum ponytail into a stylish updo with nothing more than a simple turn and a few clips. The stylists at French Twist Salon apply similar logic to everything they do, celebrating easy-to-achieve creativity and inspiration whether they're trimming hair, painting nails, or filling their boutique shop with jewelry. Some of them, such as makeup artist Hollis Wright, possess very focused specialties; others emphasize a jack-of-all-trades approach helped along by products from L'Oréal and Pureology. A few even add spa services to the salon's repertoire, banishing stress and unearned signs of aging with cleansing facials and massages.
