Voted Best Hair Salon, Best Hairdresser, or both by Mountain Xpress readers for eight years running, Wink Salon & Boutique boasts a fleet of skilled stylists that includes past master designers for Rusk International and an educator for Wella Hair Color. The green-certified salon’s hair whisperers employ Goldwell products to shift hair shades for jaywalkers on the lam and are all certified curlaborators with DevaCurl, making them well suited to manage curly manes. As the stylists snip locks with precision, nail technicians paint fingertips with Essie and Shellac polishes, and brow artists shape and shade over-eye arches with threading and tints made from all-natural vegetable dyes.
Inside Wink's boutique, jewelry and gifts crafted by more than 30 local artists beckon eyes toward the glint of recycled metals and vintage beads. An active member of the community, the business has teamed up with various organizations, such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, and hosts an annual drive for Manna FoodBank.
