Drawing on an aesthetic education with Aveda and Vidal Sassoon, Glo Salon’s Nicole Diaz crafts chic hairstyles using Bedhead products in a loft salon. Clients grab a complimentary beverage before taking a seat beneath pieces of local art in the exposed-brick salon for a hair consultation in which scalp-owners discuss a desired look or a fear that the portraits overhead are watching them.
A scalp massage’s soothing kneading precedes the highlighting service, which weaves bright, complementary shades into manes to add dimension to and liven up monochromatic locks. A deep-conditioning treatment then seeps into strands, softening rough cuticles and preventing frizz from radiating outward and merging with nearby shrubbery. Stylists then reshape strands into a face-flattering cut, taking time to show patrons which products and tools they need to achieve the same look at home. Salon sessions conclude with a brow shaping, fashioning trimmed arches that accent eyes as elegantly as grey fedoras top downtown buildings’ gargoyles.
