Filomena has been working with hair since 1999. She started at Wak Shack Salon as the manager before buying it and making it her own as B Parlor. Filomena loves working with a client's natural texture to find a style and color that perfectly suits the shape of the client’s face. She's a Wella Master Colorist; which means you can trust your hair in her hands. Filomena gets inspiration from nature, all human cultures, and by taking advanced education classes and educating other stylists. Her favorite product is Bumble and bumble Cityswept; it's perfect for that lived-in texture on medium to coarse textures.

Emily has worked with hair since 1999 and has found her passion: creating up-dos. In Emily's estimation, the up-do is hair construction in its purest form and allows the highest creative freedom. She is equally enthusiastic about cutting hair; she sees the cut as a delicate balance of construction and destruction. She finds great inspiration in working with a client whose lifestyle and face shape gives her a blueprint to work from. When Emily creates an up-do, she absolutely loves using Bumble and bumble Holding Spray.

Janine has had her hands in hair at B Parlor since 2012. Inspired by everyone's own individuality and style, she loves everything from precise retro styles and bald fades to undone bobs and beachy layers. Since she has graduated our assistant program she looks forward to attending Bumble and bumble university once a year along with all our in house education. "There is no point in falling in line when you can express yourself and what you love with how you look", says Janine. Guided by practicality, whether it's big and bold or smooth and beautiful Janine also tailors each color service to her client. Color, curly, short, long, faded or retro Janine will have you leaving the salon with the knowledge you need to confidently do your hair at home. Her favorite Bumble and Bumble product is the prêt-à-powder because it soaks up oil and extends any blow dry with volume and fullness.
