What's Special at Douglas Carroll Salon, Spa and Boutique?

In a word EVERYTHING! One of North Carolina's finest treasures, Doug is an internationally-renowned stylist whom we are lucky to have right here in Raleigh. His award-winning salon, spa and boutique is a buzzing mecca of chic luxuries.

My hair can best be described as "difficult". I have been to countless stylists over the years, the majority of whom cannot blow out my hair to my satisfaction, never mind getting the color "right". If you are in the Raleigh area or plan to visit, I recommend Doug for what is certain to be THE best haircut and style of your life! He is an incredibly talented artist who is in high demand so be sure to call a few weeks in advance for an appointment. I received my all-time favorite style, color and highlights from Doug a couple of years ago when I first met him through My Carolina Today ~

Prior to meeting Doug, I had been to his salon many times as another of my favorite stylists had worked there until she moved away. Always observing, I often wondered if Doug's assistants know how fortunate they are to work by his side. This week after Doug cut my hair, his assistant, Brandon Partin, colored it using All-Nutrient Professional Haircolor. More on All-Nutrient in a bit, but first let me tell you about Brandon. Clearly he has not wasted a second learning from Doug this past year. Their style and technique are uncannily similar and since Doug is the best stylist I have ever been to, I could not pay Brandon a higher compliment by telling him so. Aside from being extremely talented, Brandon is courteous, fun, attentive, professional and, like Doug, a perfectionist. I understand why so many women and event planners seek him out for special occasions. Also worth noting is Brandon's signature head massage. It was so fantastic, that I asked him if he took a course in massage therapy, he said "No, it just comes naturally". ☺ And...Voila! ~ 

All-Nutrient left my hair shiny, bouncy and healthy looking. {LOVE the layers, Doug!} Brandon created the curls with just a blow dryer and a few fabulous products. The benefits of All-Nutrient Professional Hair color include:
  • Certified Organic Cream Base
  • Sulfate-Free Haircolor 
  • Effective MicroProtein System for Effective Repair and Restructuring Inside the Hair Fiber 
  • Even Distribution of Color Deposit and Intensity 
  • Greater Conditioning System 
  • Non-Progressive Oxidation Process 
  • Incredible Tones ~ Shimmering Translucent Shades
For those with frizzy hair, Doug's private label, Argan Collection Style Creme, is FANTASTIC and my new not-so-secret weapon!
