April Robbins, Stylist

I’m a junior stylist at Dolce Lusso Salon and Day Spa in Park Road shopping center. I’ve been with Dolce since 2015. I went to the Aveda institute Charlotte in south end right after high school in 2013. Following school I was accepted into Dolce’s prestigious protege program. I have taken numerous classes with some of Aveda’s top educators including Janelle Geason, Jimmy Girgenti, Jon Reyman, Dusty Rhodes and TJ DeMarco. I specialize in hair color, blonding services and balayage. I’m also certified in keratin complex treatments and cosmo hair extensions. My favorite Aveda product is our cherry almond shampoo and conditioner. It is very light and gives your hair the moisture that it needs. It also smells amazing! My favorite hair trend would have to be the “lived in” color. You can achieve this look by doing balayage, babylights and shadow root. It’s soft, natural and very low maintenance. It’s perfect for the girl who loves beachy/boho vibes.

Christian Hathaway, Stylist

Education & Experience
I obtained my cosmetology license in 2009 from the AVEDA Institute of Charlotte where I was chosen for both the Edwin Neill Full Potential Award as well as the PBA Beacon winner based on both artistic accomplishment and commitment to the styling industry. Since 2010 I’ve enjoyed working at Dolce Lusso while continuing to advance my skills and knowledge through education with a focus on creative cutting and advanced hair color techniques. My clientele is just as diverse as my skill set… I’m not only proficient in women’s cut and color- I have also mastered a variety of services for men and children.

About Me:
Since I was a young child I’ve been drawn to the creative arts. After nine years of managing a clothing store, I knew I needed a greater outlet for my artistic expression and creativity. As a hair stylist, I enjoy attending advanced education classes to help expand my talent and keep up to date on current trends. I like to both help clients maintain their classic look as well as help them change things up with a more dramatic, edgy look. Outside of work I channel my creative energy into making music, painting, and DJing at different venues around town. I look forward to meeting you and collaborating with you to help personalize a style to suit your needs.

Favorite Aveda Product: Style prep smoother

Glenn Cody, Stylist

Education & Experience:
– I graduated from the AVEDA Institute here in Charlotte, April of 2018, where I was awarded Valedictorian of my graduating class. While in school I attended many Hair/Fashion Shows; Catwalk for Water (2017), Breast Cancer Awareness Hair Show (2017), Catwalk for Water (2018), Repurposed Fashion Show (2018). I was also selected as the cutting specialist in the Edwin Neill Full Potential Competition (2018). Upon starting my career with Dolce Lusso, I have taken many continuing education classes; Full Spectrum Deep Color, Face-to-Face, Advanced Face-to-Face, and Bridal Makeup classes, along with Intro to AVEDA Skincare and Cosmopolitan Hair Extensions.

Specialties and Fun Facts
– I really enjoy short haircuts, I.e. pixie/lixie, and creative colors. My favorite AVEDA product is Control Paste, it has the perfect amount of hold and flexibility. A fun fact about me, I am a HUGE Theatre and Band geek. WICKED is my most favorite musical of ALL TIME, I have two tattoos dedicated to it in fact. In high school I was in our marching and concert band and can play 7 different instruments. I was also the lead role of my small town’s, Alma, GA, first live musical, “Back to the 80s” in which I had to rock a rat-tail (don’t judge me it was for the cause). Today in modern hair cuts I LOVE a bold bowl cut, yes I said a bowl cut.
