Smooth & Sleek
Make a mane statement with this chic and effortless look. Natural hair is cleansed and blow-dried. Then, strands are braided down in a circular pattern all over the head, and human hair extensions are sewn in. Subtle, long layers are snipped throughout to frame the face. To style, prep mane with a thermal protecting product and run a flat iron through lengths. Finish with a mist of shine spray.
Celebrity stylist, and owner of Q. Shamone Salon in Atlanta, GA, hair pro Q. Shamone is turning himself into a household name. After quitting his “regular job” to go to beauty school, he opened his own salon to do hair his way. Celebrities including Kenya Moore, Claudia Jordan, Mimi Faust and Tameka “Tiny” Harris are only a few who frequent his chair.
So what attracts the stars to this salon? “I tried to set an environment [that] wasn’t too feminine and wasn’t too masculine,” shares Shamone about his salon environment where clients are offered complimentary water, coffee and wine. But, what really appeals to his famous clientele is that there is a “no-paparazzi policy.” He explains, “Nobody is going to be taking pictures…Ninety percent of the time, my celebrities come to the shop because they like the environment.”
