Behind their salon chairs, the stylists at 3rd Avenue Studio cut, color, and deep condition their clients' manes with Bumble and Bumble, Paul Mitchell, and Kevin Murphy products. They also re-texturize hair with thermal straightening, Brazilian blowouts, and relaxers. Away from the salon floor, nail technicians pamper clients with manicures and pedicures enhanced with chip-resistant shellac polishes. Additional treatments include body waxing and therapeutic facials.
Warm water cascades over locks as a stylist gingerly massages Paul Mitchell shampoo into scalps at the salon's specially designed wash house, located in a secluded nook of the salon. Stylists at The Art of Hair—a Paul Mitchell focus salon—are all educated in the advanced coloring systems and coiffing techniques of the brand, and many have decades of experience creating head-turning looks for their clients. If there's a single tenet the stylists strive toward in their services, it's to provide superior care for each man or woman who sits in their chairs, helping clients to walk out of the salon more dashing than when they arrived. Along with cuts and color, the stylists also perform Japanese hair straightening, facial waxing, men's grooming, and nailcare.
Miniature spotlights shine from the ceiling at XOXO Salon, illuminating dark wooden floors, leafy-green walls, and freshly cut styles. Accomplished stylists Rocco and Chazz Ciufi run the salon, overseeing a crew of 15 cut-and-color specialists who call upon professional products by Ken Murphy, Pureology, and Keratin Complex to update women's, men's, and children's 'dos. Stylists illuminate locks with streaks of full or partial highlights, and smooth frizzy and curly hair with keratin treatments and Dominican blowouts—specifically designed for extra-coarse strands. Brightly colored feathers accessorize hair, and Choice Cylinder extensions safely add length to natural hair without the use of glue, heat, or black magic.
Before there was Bloom Salon Plus, owners Richard Robb and Patti Saunier worked alongside the Bloom Salon Plus team at another salon and spa. When that one closed down suddenly, the group decided to stay together. They strove to build an environment based on trust and mutual cooperation. And that was how Bloom Salon Plus was born. It rose from the ashes of that old salon and spa, like a phoenix or a butterfly wearing a flameproof suit of armor.
