J Christopher Salon
When Christopher Walsh opened J Christopher Salon, he clearly envisioned a cool retreat where his clients could relax amid the hustle and bustle of downtown. Surrounded by leather banquettes and a futuristic reception desk, the Matrix-certified master educator and colorist snips drab strands into flattering, up-to-date 'dos. The stylists at his shop are all educated by Matrix as well, and they use those top-shelf products to color, straighten, and condition clients' hair. Opti.smooth straightening treatments get rid of frizz and make hair more manageable, and highlights add dimension to flat, monochromatic locks.
