Each bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. And the expert staff at Quarzo’s Hair Salon know just what it takes to help the bride and the rest of her bridal party achieve that special look.
“We specialize in the latest styles for women and men of all ages,” said Diane Shumar, a hairstylist at Quarzo’s Hair Salon. “Our salon is the one-stop shop for haircuts, coloring and highlighting, perms and much more. And we always offer the very best in master barbering.”
Typically, Shumar or Patty Franks (another stylist at Quarzo’s Hair Salon) will meet with the bride and other members of the bridal party for a consultation several months in advance of the wedding.
“We discuss different styling options,” said Shumar. “Some brides like to wear their hair up while others like to wear their hair down. We will customize that look so it flatters a bride’s facial features and works with her headpiece. During the consultation, we will also give the bride an estimate for how much our services will cost.”
On the day of the wedding, the bride and her bridal party will vist the salon to have their hair styled. Color highlighting or refreshing should be done several days before the wedding, Shumar added.
The groom and the groomsmen can also schedule appointments the morning of the wedding for clipper cuts, traditional straight razor shaves, shaving around the ear, and eyebrow and facial hair trimming.
Family owned and operated, Quarzo’s Hair Salon has been offering the highest quality service in the Brownsville area since 1910. Several members of the Quarzo family are continuing that tradition, including Richard Quarzo, owner and barber, and his children: Diane Shumar, a stylist, and Ricky Quarzo, a barber.
“We pride ourselves on personalized service and give our customers the best value,” said Shumar. “We also build long-lasting relationships with our customers and look forward to taking care of all their hair care needs throughout their lives.”
Located at 115 Thorton Road in Brownsville, Quarzo’s Hair Salon is open Tuesday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Evening hours are also available by appointment.
Appointments are highly recommended for women’s hairstylists, but walk-ins are also accepted. No appointments are needed for the barber shop.
