What sets you apart from other salons?

We all work as a team and we want our clients to feel completely comfortable going from one stylist to another. Many of our clients use several stylists from our team for different services—they might get their hair colored by one stylist and a cut and blowout from another. If a client is working with a stylist and decides to go in a different direction, we understand. We encourage our clients to try out various members of our team until they find the right fit.

We all have our strengths and we each specialize in certain things. We often come together as a team to discuss a client’s goals, hair texture and length to determine which stylist can best address that particular person’s needs. We also bounce ideas off each other to help our clients achieve the look they’re going for. The most important thing is for our clients to be happy. We’ve used this personalized, flexible approach for more than 25 years.

How do you keep up with the latest trends, techniques and products?

Once a quarter, we bring in an instructor to demonstrate something new—everything from haircut trends and color techniques like balayage to looks we’ve seen on Pinterest and Instagram. As artists, it’s essential for us to hone our skills and seek out ideas and inspiration. We stay current with the latest trends so that we can always deliver what our clients want. As an exclusive Goldwell salon, we’re committed to using the best products available, such as pigments that offer beautiful, longer-lasting shine and multidimensional shades that change with the light. We take the time to find out which products are ideal for each of our clients. Our ultimate goal is to help them look and feel their best.
