MTF: What sets you apart from the other hundreds of salons? Why are you unique?
Maria: I have went to a bunch of salons and always try and see what kind of ambiance they are providing and I’ve noticed most salons are straight business always trying to sell the products instead of themselves which can be uncomfortable to a guest just trying to be pampered and unwind. My salon has a laid back homey feel. Providing professionalism however delivering a feeling as if the guest is amongst their girlfriends.
MTF: My Top Face was excited to hear about your bridal services and events can you explain your inspiration behind this and what you provide to the brides?
Maria: Haute Air is best known for our bachelorette and bridal party events. Due to our homie atmosphere we provide what some have called pregame parties. Most girls like to get together before going out and get ready together. Haute Air gives you this girly gathering in a private party providing our pros to glam you up, a little bubbly to get you started on the night and their favorite music to jam out to.
MTF: What is this season’s most popular hairstyle that you enjoy doing for the clients?
Maria: we find that the beach sexy/Victoria secret hair is the favorite amongst the clients. It’s also our favorite due to the amazing reactions we receive from achieving this look only using a brush and blow dryer. while most salons use hot tools and curling irons, we like to wow our guests and really show off our skill.
MTF: MyTopFace is eager to know what products every girl should carry with her to keep the blowdry and glam makeup stay fresh?
Maria: there are few essentials that a girl should have to touch up her style and makeup.
To keep the fullness, apply bumble and bumble thickening hairspray at the root area. It comes in travel size and is perfect for keeping in their purse.
To keep the makeup looking fresh they can blot the excess oil with oil absorbent sheets and some lipstick to reapply.
MTF: How much time does it take to accomplish the ultimate Victoria Secret blowout and makeup glam?
Maria: a blowdry usually takes no longer than 45 minutes and a makeup application takes about 30 minutes. To perform both services our pros need roughly an hour and 15 minutes to complete a guest.
