A youthful, modern glamour sets the stage at ten20, where a friendly staff relaxes and converses with patrons in front of a big-screen television. During the 45-minute “tenfingers” manicure, your opposable knuckle sticks will be equipped with shiny new finger helmets worthy of a Costanza hand model. Put your hands where a member of the skilled staff can see them, and you'll be rewarded with a neat nail trimming. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges. Cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition, leaving your handle bars feeling buttery and spry. After a gentle massage of the arms and hands, a deliberate polishing finishes up your transformation from hand abandon to extreme extremity envy. Over the course of your skin-mitten renovation, use any free appendages to help yourself to complimentary Diet Coke and M&Ms, which you can sip and munch while taking in an episode of Sex and the City, Ellen, or Matlock on the massive monitor before you.
Knowledge is power and at Paul Morrison Colours it is no different. That’s why the salon's team of dedicated stylists are divvied up by skill level and commit themselves to hone their craft through continued education courses. In addition to keeping their shearing and styling skills sharp, the team achieves exceptional hairstyles by choosing Bumble and bumble, Kerastase, and Oribe products as well as staying abreast of the latest hair trends, such as Balyage highlighting and Easihair extensions. Bolstering the staff are two American Board Certified Haircolorists—one of whom is the owner and 35-year styling veteran, Paul—, each of whom can blend up a personalized hair hue that complements individual skin tone, facial features, and vestigial bison horns. The chic salon, decorated with geometric designs and exposed brick walls, also offers reduce rate services performed by new-talent associates, who are guided by the salon's experienced instructors.
