Expect to see more local luminaries flipping their fabulous hair up and down France Avenue: Veteran hairstylist Jason Deavalon, a fixture in Uptown for 16 years, is moving his esteemed styling chair to new quarters at the back of Wow Bar, where he is creative director. See him there starting tomorrow, Feb. 1.
This merger was always part of the grand plan for Deavalon and Wow Bar CEO Parrel Caplan. For the blow dry bar, which faces stiff competition across Minneapolis, Deavalon’s presence adds cache, and another stream of traffic. The move also serves as a fresh new calling card for Deavalon, whose clientele is generally a bit older than the blow dry crowd. I don’t think Deavalon’s faithfuls will mind pointing their SUVs to 50th & France. (Spalon Montage might not love it.)
Deavalon regulars needn’t worry: assistant Gina Capocasa is also relocating to Wow Bar, along with popular nail tech Rhonda Hansford. Services include cuts, color, hair extensions, nails, lip and brow waxing, and of course, blowouts. Wow Bar, 5037 France Ave. S., Mpls., 612-824-8939
