Like so many things in life, Studio Seven Hair is a family affair. Started by a business mogul mother and passed down to a daughter nearly two decades later, it’s no wonder the salon has been so successful—it has the savvy of two generations of women behind it.
If Studio Seven is anything, it’s a labor of love. During the salon boom of the 1990s, founder Nancy Frazier opened combined the best of spas and hair salons into one business, opening up a 6,000-square-foot space that catered to the beauty lover’s every need. In 2000, Frazier retired, leaving her beloved business in the hands of her daughter Alisha Deluca.
Just like you might imagine for someone who literally grew up in the salon, Deluca has a savviness to her and a desire to make Studio Seven a destination for innovation, not just the average neighborhood hair shop. While Deluca admits she still gets plenty (sometimes unsolicited) advice from her mother, her vision is paying off.
Studio Seven may have cruised through the millennium, but that didn’t mean it was exempt from needing a makeover (just like so many of its clients). In 2016, Deluca renovated the business, taking down dated partitions and essentially starting from scratch. She even hired a professional to educate the team about the psychology of guests coming in to have their hair done so that she could better fill those needs.
In short, Studio Seven is meant to be a third place—not home, not work—where clients can take a deep breath and relax. The “super accommodating” staff, and luxurious, clean space are exactly the vacation from everyday life we all need sometimes.
When it comes to color, Studio Seven is all L’Oréal Professionnel—so much so that the business has earned the brand’s Black Elite ranking. If you’re looking for stylers or skincare, IGK and FarmhouseFresh products lines the shelves.
This is where the genius of Studio Seven lies: It’s not just a place to get your hair colored or skin pampered. You’re part of a holistic experience that’ll leave you wanting to book that next appointment before leaving.
Above all else, Studio Seven is known for its color. Whether you tried to get that unicorn silver everyone seems to have on Instagram and ended up with a dingy version or want a professional’s help trying a color trend, corrective color and vivid shades are two of the salon’s most highly sought-after services, according to Deluca. The 18 stylists on staff are also skilled when it comes to hair extensions—everything from halo extensions to hand-tied extensions are available. If you’re just trying them for the first time, prepare for a consultation to determine which type of added hair fits best with your lifestyle.
