Lisa Power Salon in Seattle has just released its signature looks for 2011. Each look focuses on creativity, versatility and color and features an actual client of the salon. Highlighting bold, deep color and celebrating creativity, each look is topped off by the use of everyday, “found” pieces as hair accessories—a twist on the traditional updo.
“This release is all about versatility,” explains owner and stylist Lisa Power. “We wanted to show women creative uses for things that they likely have lying around their homes right now.” Items such as hemp cording, leather, and pin-curl tape were used on the hair as both an accessory and as a tool to complete the look.
“On one of the models, I used a piece of hemp cording that I pulled from my personal jewelry-making kit,” smiles Power. “We wanted to showcase the simplicity and ease of these looks, but ultimately create a dramatic presentation. Style doesn’t have to be difficult. This year will be about having fun, using your imagination and versatility.”
In December of 2010, Lisa Power Salon received Seattle Magazine’s “Best of the Decade” designation in the beauty category. Lisa Power Salon also won the “Best of Western Washington” contest in 2009 in the “Best Hair Color” category and was designated as the home of the best hair color in Seattle by the October 2009 issue of Allure, where the salon was the only Northwest location included.
Power has been in the hair industry since 1986 and opened Lisa Power Salon in July 2006. Education has always been a top priority for Power as she has spent most of her career training stylists and educators around the world. She spent six years as the lead educator for I.C.O.N. International, was the creative lead at her previous salon, and was a 13-year member of the Sebastian Artistic Team. —Amy Dodds
