Brava Hair Studio is new-ish to Navarre, but has a following that goes back 15 years from their time in Fort Walton Beach. The salon’s owner, Lisa Rector, lives in Navarre and says this is a better location for her clients because she draws customers from Panama City to Pensacola. Brava specializes in cuts and colors, from the simply beautiful to the vibrant fun colors, and even hair extensions.
“I love when someone with really thin hair comes in and we put in the extensions and they are wowed and smiling because they have ‘normal’ looking hair. It’s great,” Lisa says proudly.
Why do people come to Brava? The answer is simple. It is a beauty experience from start to finish. Brava also uses and sells only the best products available. The award-winning ColorProof Hair Authority line of products is Brava’s best seller.
“The technology infused in shampoos and conditioners has come so far,” Lisa said. According to their website, ColorProof uses only the finest, next generation, super luxury ingredients to deliver superior product performance that dramatically improves hair condition while maximizing color retention.
And, most impressive is the line’s ingredients – all vegan, free of gluten, salt, paraben, sulfate, keratin, phthalate , paba and mineral oils. Lisa says it is also important to note it is carcinogen-free. It was developed by a man whose friend had cancer. Most shampoos, according to Lisa, have ingredients that could cause cancer.
“We put these shampoos in our hair in the shower, and it washes down our bodies and absorbs through the skin.”
There is no fear of that with ColorProof.
In addition to excellent products, the stylists are continually learning new trends, styles and techniques. They take a class, either online or in the classroom, or attend a show to be the best they can be for their clients.
Brava gives clients the full range of salon/spa services. In addition to hair services, Kate Gallardo, massage therapist, helps clients relax and relieve stress. She has been with Brava since the beginning 15 years ago. Massages are available in 30, 60 or 90-minute increments for prices starting at $35, and the results are priceless.
Need skin care? Brava has that, too – Skin By Rhea. Rhea Metcalfe’s premier skin care company is located inside Brava. Rhea has more than 20 years of experience and has worked with some of the best plastic surgeons in the world. She offers facials, chemical peels, dermaplane, microdermabrasion, full body waxing and Brazilian wax.
Brava’s makeup service is extremely popular with brides. The Jane Iredale, GloMinerals and Pretty Vulgar lines are the best in the area. Lisa is quick to say she tests all products before offering them for sale to ensure the products are good enough for her clients.
In addition to all the services the salon offers, Brava also features some pretty unique boutique items, including gourmet food items, wedding things, fun socks and so much more. If you have a special occasion coming up and want a very one-of-a-kind item, just stop in and shop at Brava.
