Hair stylist Stephany Hinton applies fun and stylish Featherlocks to a customer’s hair.
She’s all about hair: the right cut, the right color, the right look. Stephany Hinton specializes in styling and other hair services at Tru Salon, located at 1223 S. Harvard in Tulsa.
In addition to cuts and color, Stephany offers corrective coloring, highlights, perms, and up-dos for weddings and formal occasions. She begins by asking every new customer what he or she likes best about their hair and what they least like about it.
“Facial features are important but lifestyle also makes a big difference in creating the right look,” she explains. Stephany loves when customers bring in pictures of the color they want to achieve. “Everyone’s perspective on color is so different. What’s golden to one person may be orange to someone else. But when I see a picture, I know exactly what to do.”
One of Stephany’s most popular requests now is feather extensions. These natural feathers attach to your hair to add style without damaging hair or breaking the bank. Feather extensions come in a wide range of colors, lengths and sizes. Imagination is the only limit to what can be done with them. Try one or two in a natural shade to provide a subtle effect, or several vivid fashion colors for a dramatic look.
Teens like to match outfits, select school colors or get matching extensions with a significant other. Even moms and dads are asking for the fun look that is so popular with runway models and celebrities. Feather extensions can be washed, dried, flat ironed, curled and cut. Since they are real feathers, they will not wear out and will last up to eight weeks without reattachment. Stephany has just received a large shipment of all kinds of feather extensions. She offers a discount to parties of five or more.
Anyone who is an avid swimmer or outdoor summer enthusiast knows how Tulsa’s extreme humidity takes its toll on hair. Stephany uses the Keratin Complex treatment to overcome frizzy, dull or over-processed hair. Keratin is the key structural component of hair. It is the protein-building block that gives the hair shaft its shape. When broken down by chemicals or effects of natural elements, there’s a problem. The Keratin Complex treatment gently penetrates the hair cuticle, without unpleasant fumes or odors. It is safe for all hair types and leaves hair soft, smooth, shiny and luxurious for as long as six weeks. “Customers just love the shine,” says Stephany. “And it does wonders to tame frizzies and natural curls.”
Tru Salon is also home to two other stylists – owner Cassidy Nelson and Brooksey Souders, as well as aesthetician Amber Sousa. Its convenient midtown location at 1223 S. Harvard makes it easy to access from the Broken Arrow Expressway, I-244, I-44, the University of Tulsa and downtown Tulsa.
Stephany works by appointment on all members of the family. She can make every day a good hair day. Give her a call at (918) 688-0255.
