Detlev’s approach takes into account the history and evolution of hair design as well as modern techniques and training. Trained in Germany, Detlev acquired the title of Master Stylist. The highest degree a stylist can achieve. Having a master degree, he is known for his ability to create looks that enhance his client’s individuality.
Born in Chicago, Jim moved with his family to Miami as a child, and he’s been here ever since. It was the creativity of the beauty industry that first attracted him, and he’s been expressing his own creativity through hair and makeup for more than 20 years now.
Though certified in every type of product used by detlev hair studio, Jim possesses a special enthusiasm for hair color—specifically red. “I believe that deep down inside, we all want to be a redhead,” he confides. “It’s a color that everyone can wear. It’s youthful, it’s daring, and different reds can be used to change the whole tonal value of hair. Even red or copper highlights can add a lot of dimension to brunettes.” At the end of the day, Jim says he receives the most personal gratification from making his clients look—and feel—good. “I like to encourage them to push their look a little, explore and branch out.
Renee has been in the beauty industry for 17 years—and 15 of those she has spent working with Detlev. The two first met when she was a teenager. “He used to cut my hair when I was 15,” Renee notes. When she finished high school, Detlev took her under his wing professionally. As her mentor, he inspired and encouraged her to attend the prestigious Aveda Institute in Minneapolis. After completing her degree, Renee spent a year and a half working with Van Michael Salon, in Atlanta, before returning home to the Miami area.
Skilled in all areas of styling and hair care, Renee says her passion lies in chemical services, from color and color corrections to hair relaxing. Ask her what she finds to be the most fulfilling aspect of her job, and she will reply without a doubt that it’s the relationships she’s developed with her clients. “They trust me,” she says. “They come in looking one way and leave looking another, and they feel good about themselves. I just really like making women look beautiful.”
