The Blaze Difference
At Blaze, we believe in doing one thing and doing it better than anyone else — hair.
In 2007 William and Noah Keck opened Blaze salon with the intent of creating one of the finest hair salons in the Midwest. Over the years Blaze has grown into a professionally dedicated staff of more than 25 with two locations comprised of individuals focused solely on cutting, coloring, conditioning and texturing hair.
Today's salon and its team of hairdressers have remained true to that original vision of exceeding the expectations of its customers. We continue to hold true to our goal of making you look and feel your very best. It is who we are, it is what we do, it is our passion.
Owners William and Noah Keck began their salon endeavor with a passion for creating beautifully cut and colored hair. That passion still exists and is fueled by the realization of their vision for creating the client-centered salon Blaze, where clients enjoy unique hair styling solutions based upon global fashion and trends.
To achieve this, William and Noah continually travel around the world learning new techniques, studying fashion movements and searching for the highest quality hair products available. By investing this time and effort, their clients are assured individualized services and treatments.
Their philosophy also focus on client wishes. At the start of each and every appointment stylists address client needs and desires during the Complimentary Consultation. This important time allows for clear communication and ensures that clients will look and feel their very best after visiting Blaze.
The core belief of Blaze is that continual education is essential to maintain an exceptional level of service. Their skills, techniques and products are ever-evolving to parallel the ever-changing world of fashion. Investing a considerable amount of time, energy and resources to their education, Blaze stylists travel to fashion hot spots like Los Angeles, Milan, London, New York and Miami to further their knowledge of fashion trends, color methods and cutting techniques.
These travels allow them to enhance their knowledge by exchanging, experiencing and ultimately mastering the latest techniques and trends. Services like their Balayage, French Cutting and Styling are among the many techniques that are a direct result of continual education.
