Solace Salon and Spa Stylists Use FreeStylist™ System To Make Their Blow Dryers Weightless

Panama City Beach, Fl– May 6, 2008 – Area residents don’t have to wait until this week’s edition of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to see how the FreeStylist™ makes salon blow dryers weightless and hair stylists very happy. Stylists at Solace Salon and Spa, in Pier Park, have been using the FreeStylist and their clients have been rapidly spreading the word about blow dryers ‘hanging from the ceiling.’

“We wanted to enhance our guest’s salon experience by streamlining the stylist’s station, removing the tangled cords, and making the blow dryers weightless for our stylists as well,” said owner Jennifer Staerker. “Our stylists love their FreeStylists because it makes their styling service so much easier to provide to our guests.”

The FreeStylist was recommended to the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” design team and team leader Ty Pennington by New England distributor R.G. Shakour and will be included in this week’s edition of the popular ABC show. The installation also includes the world premiere of a new salon lighting system that provides a more accurate light resource for hair color service, and it uses 75% less electricity.

“Ty and his team do a fantastic job in using green technology for their family builds,” said Blair Hopper, CEO of FreeStyle Systems, LLC. “Our products have been designed to be eco-friendly and low energy. We’re proud to introduce our new lighting system on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and we know that the stylist will enjoy our technology while using less electricity.”

This special episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition airs May 11th 8PM on ABC.

Jennifer Staerker will be available for media interviews by phone or at the salon for television interviews and B-Roll video footage for VOSOTs or packages.
