The sounds of snips and relaxed sighs join together in a chorus that fills 10th Avenue Hair Designs, where 22 beauty professionals cut locks in classic and avant-garde styles, massage weary muscles, and lavish skin with facials. Skilled stylists pepper this uninterrupted song with lively chatter as they stroll around salon chairs, tending to unkempt hairdos with expert highlights, straightening treatments, and natural-looking extensions. Just outside a splash zone sprinkled with cropped strands and shampoo suds, the salon’s nail technicians brighten appendages with cherry-red and blush-pink coats of polish and chip-resistant Shellac.
Further removed from the action on the salon’s main floor, a massage therapist stationed in a private treatment room kneads away knots with Swedish strokes and gently applies pressure to feet during reflexology sessions. The salon’s focus on natural remedies is on full display during facial treatments, in which aestheticians pamper and rejuvenate skin with handmade scrubs, lactic and natural flower acids, and facials that incorporate seaweed.
