Balayage and the Science of Hair with April Baxter

The Science of Hair

“I wish I were a magician and I could do whatever you wanted me to do with color. But I have to work within the laws of chemistry to get the look you want – and we might not get there in one appointment.”

Not only does the owner of ‘The Square’ Hair Salon, April Baxter know her stuff when it comes to hair – she can talk about it, too. Big on the science of hair, she does everything for a reason, not just with the hope that it will turn out right.

An American Board Certified Colorist and a Redken Certified Colorist, she approaches hair through chemistry. With a ton of further education, she understands WHY she’s does what she does to get a desired look, not just what to do.

You’re So Wonderful

People are shocked. They are literally shocked.

“OMG, you did exactly what I asked. No one else does that.”

That’s my job, why wouldn’t I?

Meet Alfie, Salon Plaza’s Member of the Month

When I was a self-employed hairstylist, I survived four stokes and a heart transplant. Due to a combination of genetic factors and family-related stress, I gradually lost use of my heart – one valve closed, then another. Meaning, my heart could no longer pump blood properly.

The resulting strokes left me partially paralyzed in my right hand, putting an end to my career as a hairstylist. I was afraid I’d never be able to work independently again.

Then a great miracle happened!
