JANUARY 2019 | | 31 COURTESY OF SALON INGÁ; GETTY IMAGES WHAT'S UNIQUE EDUCATION OPTIONS: Building upon what she learned as an apprentice in Austria, Handing brings that same level of top-to-bottom professionalism to her stateside salon. Staff learn all aspects of the business, including front desk and customer service, and can opt to train for a specialist or generalist position. "I want to make sure I give my team the proper tools to succeed in this business," says Handing. TEAM SERVICES: A tag-team ethos allows clients to experience the best of multiple worlds all at once. To wit: Clients can indulge in a facial while their haircolor processes or get a mani, pedi and haircut simultaneously. Clients can also opt for blow-dry services administered by two stylists in concert. "Our guests rave about our team blow-drying because we complete the style in a fraction of the usual time!" Handing thrills. COMMUNAL TABLES: Rather than staring at themselves at a station, clients sit at a community table while their haircolor processes, prompting conversation or allowing them to type away on a laptop comfortably. REFRESHMENTS: Cucumber and lemon water, iced and hot tea, coffee, white wine RETAIL LINES: Kérastase, Repêchage, Keratin Complex, RevitaLash, Rikoko, among others COLOR LINES: TIGI, Artègo TYPICAL CLIENTS: The suburbs feed a steady fl ow of busy moms while the salon's close proximity to downtown serves up a large professional base. MOST POPULAR SERVICE: High Lights, which uses a technique Handing created that "allows us to stay with the round of the head while doing a root touch-up at the same time and preventing overlap," she says. The reception area boasts an inviting aura meant to mimic a cozy family room. A clean, streamlined aesthetic includes white lacquer cabinets and minimalist design. Mother-daughter team Inge Handing and Tanja Catoe.
