Black Keys Salon

The shining example of my career, Matthew Landis, has been helping to create small successful local businesses. Recently he has helped create a beautiful professional space to bring together a collection of Salt Lake City’s most talented hair professionals.

I am proud to announce the opening of Black Keys Salon at Image Studios. Jared Keys and I have teamed up to create a professional and comfortable environment. Together we chose to join the team at Image Studios to give ourselves creativity, freedom, and success. We are conveniently located at 1850 south and 300 west, suite 102.

Image Studios carries only the highest quality in hair care and makeup. I am proud to be able to offer such fine hair care and hair color to my guests. Some of which include:

Kuene – The 3rd best selling hair color in the world and one of the leads in the industry for product performance and cutting edge education.

Jane Iredale – The original in mineral makeup, is known as the ‘skin care’ makeup due to its nourishing and anti-aging properties.

After my 12 years of experience and 9 years with Aveda, I am very excited to step out of the box and grow as a creative professional while still maintaining my passion for overall wellness.

Come visit me at my new location and expect to receive a truly exceptional experience with supreme product performance in a professional environment. I look forward to serving your future hair care needs; call, email, or text to schedule your next appointment.

Ballet West Fashion Show

The Ballet West Fashion Show was a collaboration with Farasha Boutique and Landis Lifestyle Salon. It showcased fashion, worn by the ballet dancers themselves, and art. The atmosphere was incredible with the runway flanked by two jets, all inside the Million Air Jet Hanger. Art pieces of ballet slippers were scattered for contemplation. Music and lighting creating a elegant and sophisticated ambiance.

The hair and makeup was very chic; the hair big and soft, makeup clean yet bold. I am so lucky to work for a salon that offers me such fun and exciting opportunities to utilize my talents. The entire design team created a positive vibration that lasted all night. We were told by one of the attendee's that we all "sparkled".

THIRST Fashion Show at AVEDA Institute Provo

THIRST was a fashion show put on by the AVEDA Institute in Provo, UT to raise awareness for Aveda's Earth Month initiative. Landis was asked to participate with a small presentation to prelude the main event put together by the students. Landis Lifestlye Salon, Azalea Day Spa, and Remedez Day Spa were eached asked to participate to introduce the students to our salons.

I was asked to head up our portion of the program, which I gladly accepted. I LOVE when I get the opportunity to do hair and makeup for different events.

I asked each stylist to create a hairstyle based on what was inspiring them for this 2011 spring season. The result was a modern twist on the classic wave. Our five models either wore shades of white or a solid bold color, looks which are in line with this spring seasons fashion trends. Makeup consisted of a full face of shades of nude, but in contrast one model wore a bold red lip and one model wore a bold coral eye.

Kim's styled her model with short blonde fingerwaves enhanced with blue eyeshadow at her newgrowth. It complimented the models skin tone and coral eye very well. What a fun look!

Shawn styled his model, who had amazingly beautiful long naturally red hair, by keeping her hair smooth and staight while putting waves in the midstrand of the hair, creating this amazing look that resembled waves in water.

I styled my model, who wore a blonde bob, very smooth with one fingerwave in the midstrand circling her head. A really sexy look!

Thanks to the whole design team! Our small presentation was such a success, we showcased real, beautiful hair.

Nicole's Winter Wedding

Nicole's wedding took place at Sundance with the beuatiful mountains as her backdrop. It was a brisk morning with clear blue skies, bright white snow and deeply colored evergreens. I was able to be apart of it by doing her hair and makeup for both her reception and ceremony. We decided to change her look for the two events; for the reception her hair was left down but styled to have a very romantic feel and for the ceremony we pulled it up in a simple and elegant style for a more formal feel. I think she looked really amazing.
