Though most people don’t associate scissors, needles, and popcorn with one another, all three play a big part in Design House Salon’s continuing allure. The salon’s owners, Chantelle Pasychny and Kurtis Brown, blend their passions for hairstyling and acupuncture in a menu of spa services designed to promote well-being from the inside out. Along with their beautifying hair treatments and chi-balancing acupuncture sessions, they nourish bodies with munch-ready popcorn that they purchase from the nearby Kernels Popcorn store.
When they aren’t snacking or counting how many popped kernels fit in a jar of Barbicide, clients can tune in to the wall-mounted television or admire the decor’s minimalistic theme. Nestled inside the historic Hudson Building, the salon goes for an industrial-chic look that incorporates the structure's original concrete pillars and reclaimed pieces of wood.
