Looking for a Great Salon? Look No Further than Black The Salon in Royal Oak!

I frequently use Instagram as a tool to discover what is going on around our city. This medium turns me onto what my peers are up to and what I need to check out and learn more about. Over the last year I have closely followed a lot of make-up artists and hair dressers. I love seeing what kind of cuts, colors, or looks that they are posting. I use these style ideas as inspiration and incorporate what I like into my own style.

I have been following a hair dresser named Natasha Vranic for the last year and I am obsessed with what she does. She is a great hair dresser and a color guru. She uses reds, blues, purples and all the colors of the rainbow in very unique ways. The hair styles she does are outside of the box and extremely classy at the same time. A few weeks ago I asked her if we could come in sometime and see what she does in person. People are always asking me where they can find a great salon in the Royal Oak area and I figured this would be a great way to show people what Black the Salon was all about.
After I reached out to Natasha I ran into a male friend who had just gotten a new hair cut. He looked great and I had to ask where her got his new look. When he replied Black the Salon I was intrigued. I wouldn't think of this gentleman as the kind of guy that would drive across town to get his hair done at a fancy salon and I needed to know more. Turns out that he was a long time friend of the owner Jeph Wright and he was a long time customer of the salon. At this point, I knew that Black the Salon was the kind of place that our readers needed to know about. Christie and I ventured out to talk to the Jeph and Natasha on camera to learn more.

What we found was a beautiful full service salon in the heart of Royal Oak Michigan.  The salon was founded by Jeph in 2009. It is a very high end establishment and features its own line of products. Before Jeph became a salon owner he was actually an engineer and he knew what he wanted when it came to products. Since he couldn't find what he wanted on the market he created those products along with a chemist. He took out all the fillers and created a line of products that just have what you need to have nice hair. I personally have been using their shampoo, conditioner and leave in styler for the last few weeks and couldn't be happier with the results. The products are light, but also conditioning, which I need on my overly bleached hair. I am blown away by the quality of the salon and their styling products.

Black the Salon is a beautiful place that is doing all sorts of cool things, including styling fashion shows and styling photo spreads. They even had an event in the lobby behind their establishment that featured a coffin. They are approaching hair styling in a whole new way. Check out the videos that we did with Jeph and Natasha to learn more about our visit.  Special shout out to Natasha for letting us watch her work, she is extremely talented and we were in awe of her.

If you like what you see, do not be scared to call up and book an appointment, or better yet, use the app. You will love the experience and walk out with a smile on your face, we guarantee it. To find out more about the salon check out their website here.
