Visitors step through M Salon's doors and see a space divided into two distinct halves, each varying an aesthetic of black, white, and red. On the salon side, stylists possessing an artistic bent consult each client, considering face shape and lifestyle before delivering cuts and color work to emulate looks straight from recent runway shows. To complement their fashion-conscious approach, the hair designers rely on high-end products ranging from Moroccanoil to Pureology. On the spa side, aestheticians dispense beautifying services such as mani-pedis using OPI polishes and waxing using the Cirepil depilatory line. M Salon's staffers go to exceptional lengths to cultivate guest comfort. While clients relax, the team is known to supply beverages, order and pickup lunch, or audit-proof clients' income taxes.
