Xena Parsons, renowned NYC stylist, spent Monday with us at Vannity Salon. To say it was amazing would be an understatement. Xena shared her vast knowledge with our team in a hands on Italian cutting and color class. She is by far one of the most captivating people I’ve had the pleasure of learning from. It was an extra special treat as she is Travis Vann’s mentor and dear friend.
It always amazes me when someone as successful and creative as Xena is so willing to share their secret weapons. Xena has been a force in hairdressing for decades and still her excitement towards our industry is infectious.
She currently works behind the chair at Sam Brocato Salon in SoHo where she explained she loves her school teacher clients as much as her celebrity ones. Xena was able to bring us techniques used in her everyday salon life that keeps her at the top of her field. The Italian cutting techniques made me feel like a tailor at a high fashion house. I can personally say it has elevated me as a stylist. We also worked on some mind blowing balayage and what she calls double dipped color. Vannity is excited to share what we have learned from the best in the business. Thank you Xena!
