Color & Style Think Tank for Hair

Some of his clients call him ‘Edward Scissors Hands.’

Some say Ed Blum, co-owner of the award-winning Makeovers Salon + Spa in Easton, Mass., just outside Boston, earned the nickname due to his seemingly magical hair styling abilities and innate fashion sense. Others say the name derives from his frenetic, ceaseless push to be at the forefront in introducing the latest styles and trends in his salon.

Whatever the case, the internationally-recognized Blum says it’s not too early to gear up for Spring and Summer 2016. And to maintain his reputation for staying ahead of the curve in America’s $20 billion hair care services industry, Blum has created a unique ‘Color & Style Think Tank” comprised of his staff who together have decades of hair styling experience. Blum founded Makeovers Salon 28 years ago with his wife Norah Blum.

“We have the most talented group of people who are always bringing new ideas to me and our clients,” says Blum. “We encourage creativity and sharing and now we’re putting our heads together in a more formal way. Expect some dramatic style and color surprises to come out of our little Zip Code!”

Blum has styled some very famous heads over the last three decades, and Makeovers Salon + Spa has won Boston Magazine’s ‘Best of Boston’ and ‘Readers’ Choice’ Awards over 18 times in all beauty categories. He is a Northeast cutting and styling champion and has consulted on hairstyles for Good Housekeeping and Brit + Co.

Last Fall, Blum served as a consultant to the L’Oreal stylist team during Milan Fashion Week where many of the Spring’s looks and colors first appeared.  Many of those head-turning trends were spotted by Blum in Milan and Istanbul and are among recent and planned  introductions by him and his team.

Ed Blum has been the stylist for ‘Days of Our Lives’ soap opera star Kristian Alfonso (Hope), and for TV’s Judge Maria Lopez. Makeovers Salon & Spa was the set for the Disney pilot, ‘Postcards from Heaven’ with medium Maureen Hancock, and casting calls with ‘The Rock.’

Among the ‘top secret’ trends that the Makeovers’ ‘Think Tank’ is readying for Spring are hair painting techniques such as  ‘Cyber Color,’ color contouring, color palettes, ‘ecaille,’ color melting, and Balayage. “I can’t go into too much detail right now,” say Blum with a characteristic mischievous twinkles in his voice. “Stay tuned.”
