Lanza's chair is the hub of activity in
West Hollywood. No flurry, of
snipping, or beauty salon gossiping here. Clients feel relaxed while
being snipped by master scissors with years of experience in the
business. A lot of hair salons say they are the best, but the
service here is above the rest at this salon nestled in West
"I like to take a moment to talk about the client's best features
and how to accent each one, down to the
color and texture of the hair and what best compliments the skin
tone. Every person is unique, and it's important to bring out their
best, and to show the client exactly what I'm doing and why during
their cut," says Lanza, "When it's finished, I walk them through the
styling step by step, giving specific tips so they feel comfortable
with their hair when they go to style it themselves. People love to
learn the little secrets that will make them look and feel great."
Lanza gives his one-on-one attention at the Fusion hair salon, using
his skills to create haircuts that are at the height of style and at
the same time easily manageable. "I do a lot of styles that have
long layers and are relatively low-maintenance," says Lanza. "How
it's going to look as it grows out is an important concern for any
client, and I style hair with that in mind."
The interest Lanza takes in what happens after a
client leaves the hair salon is all part of his special "chair-side
manner" that goes beyond the normal cut and color. He likes to take
it a step further to help improve their overall look and attitude.
"When people like the way they look, they feel good about
themselves. When they feel good about themselves, they can make
things happen." He also uses this philosophy when wearing his image
consultant hat for corporate clients. Is the secret to success,
then, good hair? Lanza's clients will swear to it!
