Daniel Lewis is a born-and-raised southern gentleman with a passion for highlights and an obsession for Dolly Parton. He opened the first Green Peridot salon in Tallahassee, Florida and later expanded his dream and his business to the Dallas metroplex. For six outstanding years, the Green Peridot Dream Team has developed a guest experience full of energy and fulfillment for the mind, the body and the spirit by using high-performance, botanically based products that follow Aveda’s vision of connecting beauty, environment and well-being.
Kerri Dahir found hair styling to be the perfect outlet for her inner creativity; she is addicted to using color and lines to exude beauty. After hearing so many wonderful things about the Green Peridot family, she joined the team and has been impressed with the atmosphere and talent ever since. Kerri says her co-stylists make every workday so fun and exciting—she loves knowing she can turn to any stylist to learn different techniques and innovative styles. For Kerri, hair coloring is the easiest way to bring a style to life, so it’s no wonder why she loves Rene Furterer’s Carthame line so much. “It is PERFECT for blondes with dry hair! Everyone could use a little moisture!”
Holland Deacon’s sister had been a client of Daniel’s for years, so when a position with our team opened up, Holland was the first to show interest. Inspired by the Aveda experience in every visit, Holland wanted to be a part of something more than just another beauty salon; she wanted to learn from some of the best artists in the industry. Holland adds to our fun and fresh atmosphere with her big smile and eager work ethic. Holland is a believer in Rene Furterer’s Naturia Dry Shampoo. “It’s perfect for mornings when you need a little extra sleep!”
Emily Jackson loves Aveda’s earth-friendly, proactive attitude paired with Green Peridot’s promotion of a positive, productive and friendly environment. As a professional hair stylist, she believes a happy work environment creates a happy experience for her clients. Emily strives to bring out flair and personality in her clients through her technique; she loves seeing transformations in her clients, but tends to focus on emphasizing natural beauty through precise cuts or bold, dramatic color. For every finish, Emily says Aveda’s Light Elements Texturizing Creme adds weightless texture for a perfectly light hold.
Ursula Lindsley is our personal Dream Team cheerleader whose contagious smile is her signature trait. After graduation, Ursula looked for a salon that had tons of chemistry between the stylists and decided Green Peridot was where she belonged. Ursula says she was inspired to seek cosmetology after realizing her childhood dreams never went away. Ursula is obsessed with a fabulous blowout; even while she coloring and cutting, she is already thinking of how to finish out her clients. “When people look good, they feel good. I get so excited thinking about what the final product will look like!” She is a firm believer in Rene Furterer’s Tonucia conditioner because it’s treatment-oriented with a fantastic aroma.
Tiffany Maldan is inspired daily by her interactions with clients; she spends her time behind the chair sharing stories with clients and loves getting to know them personally. Tiffany takes pride in her work and is always absorbing as much as she can from Daniel. Her passion is hair color—she loves the challenge of dramatically changing color and seeing instant new life in the hair. Anyone who has spent time with Tiffany knows Rene Furterer’s Lissea line is her go to product group, because “frizz is no one’s friend.”
Erica Rondon was already a superb hair stylist when she came into Green Peridot for a haircut, but within one hour, she fell in love with the upbeat atmosphere and energetic team; she applied for a position that same day and is now proud to call Green Peridot home. Erica loves bold color: “Fiery reds, bombshell blondes, classic brunette… I love each and every one!” To keep color protected and vibrant, Erica uses the entire Okara line from Rene Furterer but loves to finish with Brazilian Blowout Root Boost for lots of volume.
