Stylist Giovanny “Gio” Jorge uses three-dimensional color and angular crops to create catwalk-ready designer looks that celebrate and accentuate each client’s style. Her extensively trained staff members accomplish their artistic visions using eco-friendly products and carefully chosen chemical services such as Opti Smooth relaxing treatments. An expansive selection of hair-extension styles can also fill out clients’ coifs with natural-looking faux strands. After appointments, newly chopped locks shine in the glow of the salon’s sparkling chandeliers, backlit mirrors, and nuclear-powered blow-dryers.
Salon Eco Chic uses only certified organic haircare products that are plant-based and free of ammonia, sulfates, and chemicals. Armed with these eco-friendly tools, stylists perform precision cuts for men and women, nourishing hot-oil treatments, balayage hair painting, and color treatments via Organic Coloring Systems. In addition, they also offer Keragreen keratin treatments, which are designed to straighten and smooth rebellious strands that tangle up into painful knots and what some might consider obscene shadow puppets.
