T?n Vangard isn't the kind of salon that shies away from edgy looks. Sure, the staff at the newly opened salon conditions hair with restorative oils and exfoliates skin with facials for men and women. But there's a darker, more rebellious element at play here. This is apparent not only in the radical hues that come from the color bar, but in the fact that the salon is also home to a professional tattoo parlor. A chorus of humming needles provides the soundtrack while trained artists ink custom butterflies, pinup girls, and pinup girls with nightmarish butterfly heads. Creative (and healthy) spa cocktails dial back the alternative vibe a bit; try the aptly named Beautini, which blends pomegranate, white tea, and coconut water. The salon also functions as a barbershop, where clients can opt to sip on a latte from the in-house coffee bar, as they check out the salon's unique art-covered walls.
No scissors are allowed at SWANK blow dry bar. But the stylists don't miss them?a blow dryer and a suite of styling brushes is all they need to send each guest out the door looking like a million bucks. This blow-out focused beauty bar transforms all types of hair?thick, curly, straight, long, whatever?with speedy, yet relaxing blow-dry treatments that include luxurious extras like complimentary mimosas and scalp-massaging washes. For hair in need of a little extra care, the stylists can also include a deep-conditioning treatment, and the salon even offers blowouts specifically tailored for kids and men.
Anthony Joseph says that the most important part of his job happens before he even lifts his shears: it's the consultation, where he learns the client's vision and gains inspiration for the look he's going to create. Afterward, the Aveda-trained stylist snips locks, brushes on highlights and color, and nourishes strands with deep-conditioning treatments. Throughout, clients sip on a complimentary glass of wine as soothing music plays in the background of Joseph's private studio.

Light floods through Vior Salon's windows onto orange accent walls and wood floors the color of chocolate.
