Street Style: April Fernandez

When you call Bazzak or come in for an appointment, April is typically one of the first faces you will see. She’s been with us for close to a year now and is an essential part of the Bazzak team. April is great at what she does and seamlessly manages all the goings-on at the salon, which can be quite busy at times! She’s warm, friendly, intuitive, and is one of the most stylish people we know! Our staff and clients all enjoy her bright personality and outgoing nature. Be sure to say hi next time you see her!
