At Byblos Hair Salon, a team of industry veterans and young talent combine to harmonize time-tested techniques and recent trends. Under the leadership of owner and artistic director Joseph, the senior staff works hand in hand with a crop of next-generation stylists to help develop the skills needed to craft personalized looks and razor-sharp pairs of origami scissors. The stylists snip and sculpt amid an atmosphere that echoes their modern approach and surrounds clients in sleek marble accents, black and white tiled floors, and an open-ceiling design. The team also maintains a rich online presence, and their website's media gallery showcases fashion-focused photos and videos captured under the beaming lights of an on-site media studio.
Styling stations, pedicure chairs, and lounge areas pop up throughout Noir Salon & Spa's large studio amid sandstone accents and wall tones plucked from a pale dawn.
