Sigal Gevojanyan's sizable, multitalented roster approaches beautification and relaxation from all angles with its lengthy list of services for the hair, skin, and body. Visitors can surpass their bodies’ aesthetic aspirations with haircuts, coloring, and mani-pedis, or relieve the aches of sleeping in cramped overhead compartments with the long, flowing strokes of a Swedish massage. The spacious, two-story salon and spa’s secluded treatment rooms grant privacy for body-wrap sessions and waxing, while its manicure area allows guests to socialize as they indulge their hands in a cocoa shea-butter soak and a fresh coat of nail polish.
Vicente Salon’s sleek interior is an apt setting for an image revival. Hairstylists kick-start the process with fashionable haircuts, and in the color lab, colorists use soy-protein-based hair color to give clients a look of youth and radiance. Stylists also offer treatments such as keratin treatments, relaxers, and extensions, and skincare specialists coax healthy tones from clients’ complexions with facials and peels. After a cut, facial, or makeup session, clients can peruse the salon’s boutique to purchase hair and skin products from leading brands.
When Edan Ezer was a boy growing up in Israel, he was so committed to becoming a barber that he left school at 16 to train at a local salon. When he was 18, he joined the Israeli Army and became popular for cutting hair at the army base and styling it with the downdraft of a helicopter. He eventually moved to Los Angeles to work alongside some of the best stylists in the world at high-end salons across Beverly Hills.
Since 2006 Edan has operated his own high-end salon, where he and his team work to pamper, relax, and rejuvenate clients. Stylists massage scalps and snip split ends before creating a sleek blowout that can last for days. For longer-lasting results, they straighten hair with Brazilian keratin treatments, which reduce frizz for months. Another popular Brazilian at the salon is its aesthetician, who removes hair with 100% pure honey and who brightens complexions with facials using natural skincare products.
The stylists at Merci Blowdry Salon specialize in one thing: shampoos and blowouts. Clients choose the style they want, be it sleek and curly, beachy, or straight, and the stylists wash, blow-dry, and style manes with finishing touches from a curling or flat iron.
