A “seasoned” stylist is how Keith may introduce himself when asked about ‘how many years’ he has done hair for? Keith is an old school hairdresser that can easily recall doing hair in a salon where no men ever entered and dryer chairs were a necessary fixture. With many years of experience Keith knows how to do permanents exceptionally well – old school (70's, 80's & 90's) haircuts & styles that most young stylists don't have a clue on how to start – as well as – modern cuts & color. You know – “old is new again” in the fashion industry and that goes for hair styles as well.

All services our apprentices provide are at a discount – but the results are superior.
Model releases must be signed prior to any services.
There are several reception team members. Most come to London Calling Salon while attending
Cosmetology school. This allows them an opportunity to learn first–hand how hairdressers,
guests and the salon works – and London Calling Salon gets a reception team that
understands a bit about hair etc. and is also interested in our guest experience. Over the years
most receptionists that became Licensed Cosmetologists have also become London Calling Salon
Our current reception team will be attentive to you while making your appointment, when you arrive, as well as after your services are complete and you are scheduling your next appointment. Our receptionist looks forward to speaking to you and also meeting you when you arrive.
London Calling Salon does quite a few HAIR BALL™ shows through out the year in metro Detroit as well as out of state. "Ernie" is the do it all guy, since 1996, that coordinates the HAIR BALL™ shows through logistics, model hunting, last minute repairs or "jerry rigging" on the spot as well as general repairs and maintenance in the salon. Ernie also produced, choreographed and stared in a HAIR BALL™ show and has been a past M.C.
The "Man of Action". Matt is the go to guy at HAIR BALL® shows and our model "wrangler" extraordinaire. Without the models being on stage at the right time – the show falls behind. This is the HAIR BALL® equivalent to the cowboy, in that he can move the MODELS where they need to be and keep them in line. Get along – little doggy!
