Devon Watson, owner of Devon Salon, began her career studying theater and received a bachelors degree from Jackson State University. She then channeled her creative energy as an apprentice for Parisian Master Stylist, David Sebbag, in Mountain Brook. Since beginning her professional beauty career in 2007, Devon has continued to expand her education. Trained under the Toni and Guy curriculum and then Aveda for 5 years she has made it a point to attend trainings annually from all leaders in the beauty industry so that her knowledge of the industry is extensive and sharp and on the cutting edge. Devon was the first Salon Suites independent salon owner. She has experience in booth rentals and corporate salons and was looking to be her own boss. She immediately jumped at the chance Salon Suites provides.
“I build looks. I use color, I use extensions, products. I can elongate, highlight the hair, I can put dimension with lowlights. I build a look. I dont just specialize in cuts or color, but I create a whole new look. I believe less is more. I can do theatrics, with body paint and glitter and makeup and hair for the stage, but for daily wear I accentuate peoples best features.”
Devon is a creative artist and pulls inspiration from iconic artists such as David Bowie, Lady Gaga, and Tim Burton. Their success, positive mental attitude, and powerful/creative visions are daring and speak true to who they are. They are not afraid to be who they are and neither should we. With an artistic eye such as Devon’s you don’t have to be. Her favorite iconic look is Marilyn Monroe and describes her personal style as modern classic.
“Bowie, Gaga, Tim Burton. They are people that are just outlandishly, not afraid to be odd and don’t deny it and don’t make excuses.”
Devon’s creative nature bleeds into her free time as well. She is a yoga enthusiast, especially vinyasa flow yoga (and is a yoga instructor). She enjoys travel and most recently has traveled a good deal to New York. She also loves spending time with her 16 year old daughter and devoting time to continued education for beauty and hair.
“I think outside the box but color inside the lines.”
Devon’s products include HaloCouture Hair Extensions, Keratin Complex, Brazilian Blowout, FHI tools, and has more to come.

“That feeling you get when someone looks in the mirror and starts crying because they didn’t know their hair could look so good is so gratifying. “
