The name — Skullz Salon — is probably the first tipoff this isn’t going to be your grandma’s beauty parlor.

Successful in Kent since 2007, the owners of the salon that specializes in razor cuts, hair color and body waxing are opening a second location at Highland Square in the former home of Revival clothing store.

Amanda Boyd, 34, said she and partner Angelique Manns, 36, live in Highland Square and wanted to do business there.

They hope to open in mid- to late July, but ramping up is tougher for them than most.

To work at Skullz, stylists must not only have a cosmetology license, but complete a 12-month apprenticeship to learn the salon’s six signature cuts and six signature colors.

“That way, when a customer walks in, no matter who they see, they get the same thing,” Boyd said last week. “We have high quality control.”

Apprentices work at a separate location and don’t set foot on the Skullz Salon floor until their yearlong training is complete, she said.

At the moment, two classes of apprentices are busy training, and the salon is looking to hire more.

Most Skullz clients are millennials or young professionals, Boyd said, but they have customers from toddlers to people in their 80s.

You can find pictures of their work — along with before and after shots — on their Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SkullzSalon/) or Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/skullzsalon/) pages.

Last week, their clients included a woman with a razor-cut bob dyed a dark cherry red and a young man who came in with shoulder-length hair and left with a mohawk standing at least 8 inches from his scalp.
