Long-time beauty pro Danielle Schepisi opened her own salon three months ago, and diligent beauty editor that I am, I visited her lovely little jewel box of a salon this afternoon and was treated to a fabulous blowout by Argentinean Christian Villaverde (aka the King of Blowouts). What was cool (other than the silver bead curtains and blue mosaic walls) was that all the blow dryers were hanging from the ceiling, dangling like little swords of Damocles over the chairs. One tug down to head level and they turn on; release the dryer and it pops back up and turns off. Schepisi discovered the system after a second surgery for carpel tunnel syndrome didn’t alleviate her problems. “My symptoms were so severe, I could not even lift or hold a blow-dryer and I was afraid I might not be able to do hair anymore,” she explained. “The Freestylist system suspends the dryers from the ceiling, so they are essentially weightless. It literally saved my career.”
Not only ergonomically correct, but so efficient it’s a wonder it hasn’t yet caught on in other salons. You heard about it here first!
