When sisters Jessica Barton and Eslie Greene opened Salon Sovain, they aimed to keep the space true to its historic Chelsea home. Antique furniture, including rustic armoires at styling stations and glitzy chandeliers hanging overhead, unfurl across the space’s dark-wooden floors while windows give a view of a street lined with historic brick buildings. Of course, the sisters had to add a few modern touches. They drenched some of the walls in vibrant pink—which complements the other walls’ exposed brick—and created a white, textured reception desk with flowers. Within the classically styled salon, the duo showcases their talent, excelling at creating fashion-forward looks with chic cuts and color treatments with the aid of Redken, Wella, and Joico products. They arrange strands into elegant updos or unconventional Valentine’s Day gifts and repair years of damage with hydrating conditioning treatments. Jessica doubles as a nail expert too, tempting clients with standard or Shellac manicures topped off with OPI or CND colors.
As natural light pours through large windows in Michael Susanne Salon, so do scenes from the bustling Ann Arbor Farmers Market. Clients watch market-goers fight over the most eligible farmer outside while hair artists send dead ends floating delicately to the floor and nail technicians wield files with the care and precision of a violinist’s bow. It takes a professional hand to brandish instruments that transform appearances with such grace. Luckily, hairstylist Pam Sample has spent more than two decades in the industry. Her specialty is coloring, for which she uses Dikson Color products imported from Italy.
The students at Scholars Cosmetology University trade their notebooks and pencils for scissors and nail files, studying the latest techniques to master soothing spa and salon services according to the State Board of Cosmetology's standards.
