Jorge and Jessica opened Antidote Salon in 2009, combining his hair-cutting skills and her make-up artistry to cure their clients of tired styles. Today their salon is known for its emphasis on customer service, its wide range of skin treatments, and for being part of the Aveda network of salons. But Jorge and Jessica's main focus has always been on their clients. Every visit to the salon side starts with an in-depth consultation about the client's needs and lifestyle to create just the right look. Throughout the salon, the team designs new 'dos and treats skin solely with Aveda products that are as friendly to the environment as a venture capitalist who just found out leaves are worth their weight in gold.
The imported Spanish wax that aesthetician Laura Joy trusts for body waxing contains rosins and beeswax, which not only quickly uproot hair (at a lower temperature and with less pain than other waxes), but also soften the skin. It makes sense that even her waxing products dote on skin, since Glow Skin Therapy caters mainly to the epidermis. For straight-up skincare such as facials and peels, Laura enlists natural derma e products.
If Chris Tam?s work looks familiar, it might be because you've already seen it on TV, film, and in print. Prior to going into skincare 13 years ago, Tam was a makeup artist, helping stars shed their normal-people looks before getting in front of the camera. Now, with her own aesthetic practice, she tends to skin and follows through on a commitment to treat her clients exclusively with all-natural clinical services. Such treatments include custom facials, microdermabrasions, makeup application, and eyebrow shaping.
In case it's not obvious from the name, Spank Salon is a place with personality. Every inch?from the white-and-mirror futurism of the styling-chair area to the fire-engine-red lobby?makes this fact immediately apparent. And when stylists pick up their shears, dyes, and makeup brushes, Spank's creative perspective shines even brighter. Of course, many opt for simple trims and classic cuts, savoring the salon's commitment to quality products (Kerastase, Unite) and talented artists no matter what 'do they seek.
