Lights, camera, runway! On May 19, 2017, SALON by milk + honey stylists, Amy, Morgan, and Meesh, along with salon apprentice, Peyton, participated in Austin Fashion Week. To prep for Friday evening’s runway show, the stylists met with the featured designers to create an exclusive hairstyle for the show. It had to be a look that would translate across multiple collections and aesthetics. Together, they chose soft, gorgeous curls — one part glamorous, one part low-maintenance — for the 19 models that would be walking the show. Working backstage is always filled with energy, fun, and inspiration, and this year was no different. Here are some of our favorite backstage snapshots from this year’s Austin Fashion Week.
Blondes, brunettes, redheads, and now pastels? If you’ve checked Pinterest, Twitter, or Instagram, you’ll notice you that the pastel hair craze is becoming more and more popular. Our Hill Country Galleria manager, Rhianon, decided to take on this trend and try dusky rosegold hair! With our talented stylist, Tanya F. at the helm, she was able to go from blonde to the perfect shade of pastel pink.
We’re lucky to have such a talented, inspiring team of stylists, licensed massage therapists, estheticians, and concierges. And as we grow, so does our milk + honey family. Meet the newest faces, and make sure to come in to all three locations to say “hi!”
Meg, stylist at SALON by milk + honey at Arboretum Market
Meg is a beauty industry veteran. After 15 years as a makeup artist and esthetician, Meg sought a new challenge and became a hair stylist. She spent three years in New York, falling in love with her new field, and moved to Austin in 2013. Meg feels a connection to her clients and has a knack for understanding their needs, and creating cuts and colors that are wearable and easy to maintain. She loves creating luxurious blondes, eliminating frizz with keratin smoothing treatments, and cutting sassy pixie styles. When she’s not in the salon, Meg is probably at the movies, cooking extravagant dinners, or playing with her Chinese Crested puppies, Billie and Miles.
Mark, licensed massage therapist at 2nd Street District/Downtown spa
Mark has been in Austin for the past seven years and has been heavily involved in our local dance community. He has two cats whom he likes to spend his spare time with. And when he’s not dancing or chilling with his cats in his down time, he also enjoys yoga and bodywork.
Alyssa, shampoo assistant at Hill Country Galleria salon
Alyssa has been in Austin for the past six months, but she has already fallen in love with the city’s hike and bike trails, music scene, and busy outdoor life. She decided to become a cosmetologist because she loves hair, the salon life, and meeting new people. Her beauty tip is “as long as you own your style, you can pull it off!”
Kim, licensed massage therapist at 2nd Street District/Downtown spa
Kim moved to Austin seven years ago. She loves being outdoors, and her favorite place to be (outside of the spa) is the Greenbelt. Kim became a massage therapist because she really wanted to give something special to other people. Her favorite beauty tip is a DIY oil, mixing castor oil and grape seed oil — it’s great for your skin and hair.
Jordan R., nail tech at the SALON by milk + honey at Arboretum Market
Jordan moved to Austin three years ago from Seattle, Washington. She loves it here, and enjoys going to see any concert or live music. Jordan loves being a nail therapist and being able to make others feel beautiful inside and out.
