Staff

When putting your personal appearance into someone else’s hands, you want to be sure of that individual’s abilities. At DeWeese Design Salon Inc., every hair stylist we hire has attended beauty school and is fully certified. Since continuing education is an important part of our salon, we hold training classes every six weeks on average. Some of our stylists also travel to New York City to attend special hair shows and workshops.
