We recently did a Q&A with Heat, a wonderful salon in Lansing!
Tell us about yourself!
Heat is special because it was born from two very different perspectives. Co-Owner and Founder Dan Buccilli brings his passion for hair and creativity to Heat as head stylist, while Co-Owner Molly Chan’s passion for Heat was born more from providing people with an amazing experience that impacts their day in a positive way. Chan is not a stylist, just a blow out addict, as she calls herself. Chan treated herself to the affordable luxury of getting her hair blown out twice a week while going through the journey of her husband’s cancer battle. The time she spent taking care of herself and loving herself was a blessing and a reprieve from the ugliness of cancer. Chan had such a positive experience during such a difficult time, and Heat was born to give this same positive experience and feeling to our clients, including our brides. As East Lansing’s newest specialty boutique salon, we are very popular among the community for the unique services we offer. Specializing in all things blowouts, hair styling and finishing, just no color. We also offer airbrush make-up application, manicures, pedicures, and even private parties. We use Bumble and bumble. products and have a team of four stylists including Buccilli. Heat has had so much success since the opening in August 2014 that they have now created a menu of bridal services.
