Owned by renowned colorist Wendy Walicek, Deseo Salon is the future of luxury hair color and design. "I wanted to revolutionize the every essence of a stereotypical hair salon and give each client what they truly desire for their look," said Walicek. "Deseo is a culmination of inspiration from all over the world, mostly focused on the Latin regions. Inspired by the unmatched experience I had at a hotel in Playa del Carmen, the goal of Deseo is to transport our clients to a place where they instantly feel welcome, relaxed and at the same time energized.”
