Also commonly known as ‘New York Fashion Week,’ this eight-day event is known to be the Mecca for fashion and hair stylists alike. Fojt has been selected by L’Oréal to style for runway shows featuring designers Monique Lhullier, SUNO and Thakoon.
James is set to leave Houston for the bright lights of New York City on Sept. 6 and will participate in one show a day during his “whirlwind” long weekend in NYC! While we will miss him here at Urban Retreat, we couldn’t be prouder to lend him out for such a hugely rewarding experience!

KHOU-TV’s Great Day Houston selected the Urban Retreat team to work their salon magic on a deserving dad who was in desperate need of a man-makeover.
Todd Parker is a proud dad, husband, and accomplished photographer. The one thing he lacked was an updated look that reflected his creative, modern, and hip personality. Stylist Todd Ramos took on the challenge of revamping Parker’s outdated look with a vision that was refreshed and refined.
Once a new wardrobe had been selected, Ramos led Parker to the trusted and gifted hands of the Urban Retreat team. With an open-minded attitude, Parker allowed Hair Stylist Bryan Nguyen to chop off his long locks, a cut that was far past due.
The transformation did not stop there. Edward Sanchez was ready to take Parker to the next level, threading. Threading is an ancient method of hair removal. From ear hair to eyebrows, or what Sanchez refers to as “my-bros,” no unwanted hair was left lingering.
After a day of fittings, trimmings, and “manscaping,” the transformation was finally complete. Parker’s look went from an untailored, lackluster hippie to a sophisticated, clean-cut, handsome professional. It goes to show what a difference tailored clothes, a quality haircut, and a little threading can make. Parker is a magnificent dad and husband and now he has a magnificent new look to match.
