byrde + the b
What can be more idiosyncratic than the way we choose to present ourselves to the world—the way we cut or color our hair, do our nails, choose to use makeup or not?
A new luxury salon in Washington Depot, Byrde + the b, has a talented team of stylists, led by Emmy Award-winning stylist Scott Bond, who bring a cumulative half-century of experience in creating distinctive personal styles that sets its clients apart.
Bond, who has worked on high-profile socialites and celebrities in major salons around the world, opened Byrde + the b in 2017. His work has been featured in makeover segments for NBC’s Today in New York and ABC’s The View. He has also worked on a number of movies such as LA Confidential and X-Men.
At his full-service salon in Washington Depot, he provides everything from cuts, color, hair extensions, Brazilians, balayage, waxing, eyebrows, skincare, light therapy, manicures, bridal services and blow outs, even as he continues to contribute his talents to both film and television.
A new addition to the salon is Byrdeman, a bespoke barber shop catering just to men, including cuts, color, beard trims, hot shaves, waxing and skincare.
Working with Bond are Pilar DeMann, a brows, lash and make-up expert, and Lucy Callaway, a professional hair stylist and makeup artist who completed her training with Bond.
Brows are receiving renewed attention in personal care and DeMann focuses on shaping, tinting, and microblading eyebrows. Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo, that fill empty spots in the brow with soft color. She also does eyelash tinting and make-up.
Callaway began work in television production, assisting hair stylists and make-up artists on set. Inspired, she studied at Paul Mitchell the School and since has worked both in the salon and doing freelance hair and makeup for editorial and commercial photoshoots and bridal parties.
Lizzy Anderson, also a graduate of Paul Mitchell the School, is the resident barber and assists clients with everything from haircuts to hot shaves.
While enjoying the soothing surrounds of the tastefully decorated salon, patrons may be attracted to the original paintings and the select porcelain and ceramics from Sweden, Denmark and Germany that are for sale. Also offered are objects from Marrakech, including necklaces, bracelets, scarves and carryalls.
Extending the retail aspect of the salon, Byrde + the b will host a pop-up shopping event Saturday, October 13th, from 3-5PM, for Cloth which sources ethically produced clothing for babies, boys and girls. Byrde + the b will serve a proper English tea with biscuits.
Byrde + the b is located at 10 Titus Road, Washington Depot. For further information, call the salon at 860-619-0422 or visit the website linked below.
