Salon Fusion?s team of six stylists tends to tresses with luxurious products from Brazilian Blowout, Moroccan Oil, and Aquage. Deft scissor hands shape unruly locks into custom ?dos, lengthen tresses with Babe extensions, and smooth strands with advanced Brazilian blowouts, which boost shine more subtly than a teaspoon of mirror shavings. To complement head-hair services, seasoned techs can also wax away unwanted stubble throughout the body, bronze physiques with Fake Bake spray tans, and enhance facial features with expertly applied makeup.
You won't find the stylists at Blast Blow Dry Bar wielding scissors. Instead, they take manes from frazzled to polished using only blow-dryers and hot tools. Inside one of the Bar's four locations, blow-dry recipients choose from a list of seven style options ranging from sleek and super straight (The Skinny) to full, flowing, voluminous curls (The Glam). Each blowout includes a shampoo and conditioning treatment so that finished locks look and feel healthy and strong, and the staff can even add-on a hair treatment shot to help repair scalps suffering from dryness or seasonal allergies.
Beyond blowouts, Blast Blow Dry Bar also offers services such as up-dos, facial waxing, and professional makeup applications. And, for those looking for a makeover that lasts longer, the staff can administer a Brazilian blowout, which smooths frizz and conditions hair, leaving it shinier and straighter for up to 12 weeks.
Hannah and Jennifer dig deep into clients’ psyches to extract their innermost style desires, much like Freud, who double majored in fashion. Regardless of the individual client’s lifestyle and preferences, they can design a new look that suits them, since they’re trained in both current trends and classic techniques. That doesn't mean they use outdated products, though. They pour out Wella Professionals, Moroccanoil, Brocato, and Kaaral products to nurture tresses. The duo activates the power of these lock elixirs to render haircuts and coloring, but also transforms customers' appearances with waxing and tinting services—something hairy cars need, too.
Whether applying makeup to clients or creating a new line of products, makeup artist Nicole Fae concentrates not on concealing flaws, but rather on highlighting each individual?s beauty. The cosmetic devotee brings this philosophy to her expansive retail emporium, where she vends her original line of foundations, eye and lip makeup, and lotions and cleansers. Knowing that the ability to correctly apply makeup, unlike the ability to correctly execute a flying barrel roll, is not innately coded in every woman?s DNA, Nicole also hosts one-on-one private lessons to teach proper application and color use tailored to the individual and occasion. Additionally, the aesthetic artist invites groups of six or more to cavort at brow parties, where she demonstrates how to maintain eye arches in between wax visits.
Everywhere you look inside DD Style, you'll find a stylist or an aesthetician doing what she's best at. Over in the salon chairs, clients dictate how they want their new hairdos to look and watch as their dreams are cut and shaped into reality. On the other side of the salon, technicians paint nails with vivid color and aestheticians lead their clients into private rooms for waxing treatments.
When it comes to hair, there isn't much that stylist Christine can't do. She cuts, colors, and styles hair with an expert's touch, and even offers a full menu of texturizing services that includes perms, keratin hair-smoothing treatments, and folding hair into origami swans. Christine works out of Cyd and Friends Salon, a contemporary space on a quiet, tree-lined street.
