It Salon’s internationally trained team of Goldwell- and Brazilian-blowout-certified stylists enhances tresses in a modern setting, replete with exposed-brick walls, shag carpet, and an overhanging, whimsical light fixture. Under the side-long glances of the lime-green ceramic Buddha heads, stylists snip and style hair into face-framing ‘dos using products such as Arrojo and Moroccanoil. Favored strands lighten up during a partial-highlights session, adding a sun-kissed shimmer to indigenous hues. For manes in need of an attitude adjustment, a Brazilian-blowout-certified stylist coats strands in a specialized açaí solution that delivers a shiny, frizz-free finish for up to 12 weeks with no downtime for showering, swimming, or dunking for midmorning snacks. Clients also receive 10% off any salon products, and may upgrade from partial to full highlights for an additional $20.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
The stylists at It Salon arrived at their chairs from different parts of the world, but they all share a passion for hair design and artistry. From the salon’s president and “sovereign empress of the Richmond salon community” to their very own “perm queen” (as they describe themselves on the salon’s Facebook page), each of the half-dozen strand savants has a special talent, boasting certifications in products such as Goldwell hair color and Brazilian Blowout smoothing systems. Men and women of all ages step into the chicly weathered brick building for a clip and, if they like, a glass of wine or beer. Before the appointment, they lounge in a dramatic black-and-white waiting area lit by a chandelier that resembles an enormous pompom or exploding snowman head.
