The staff at Lucia's...the salon on main is tasked with carrying out an ambitious mission: "To provide an experience, not just a service."

Upstairs from the bustling hair studio and spa, The Wine Bar at Solaire offers a quiet respite amid lush curtains and soft lighting.

As its name implies, Salon 180 isn’t known for playing by the book.

Though they have years of experience cutting and styling hair, the salon’s team of stylists claims particular expertise in chemical treatments such as corrective color procedures and highlights. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists ease tension with full-body Swedish techniques or targeted sessions that narrow their focus to sore pitching arms or stiff vestigial tails. Just as the stylists and therapists draw on professional products to enhance their treatments, the spa’s skin and body specialists use advanced toners and technologies such as radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen production and clear skin of blemishes.
Hair on the Square LLC, a L'Oréal spa and salon, nourishes skin with facial treatments incorporating kosher products that are not tested on animals.

Single-layer singature facials promote healthy skin by using substances already present in the epidermis to stimulate the natural healing process, combat oily skin, and train pores in the art of forgery.
