Sharp Styles Salon
Owner Zebrina Looney and her energetic, multicultural staff empathize with clients who have been stung by the arrogance that sometimes permeates swanky salons. That's why they take pains to communicate style suggestions and treatment details in a way that clients can understand, infusing strands with glamorous formal and everyday styles in a non-intimidating atmosphere. The employee roster brings together fresh beauty-school graduates and veteran stylists who all share the same love of hair and dipping french braids in french dressing. Their diverse career accomplishments include publishing work online and in magazines, styling for professional photo shoots, and serving as educator for premium hair-product manufacturers such as Paul Mitchell and Biolonic.
A flat-screen TV and complimentary coffee, soda, and snacks contribute to the salon's laid-back atmosphere, and decor accents of wrought-iron wall art and granite countertops exude an aura of streamlined sophistication.
