The sea-foam green and beige interior lined with Christmas lights and art gives Stars Organic Salon a cozy feeling. Clients can sit back and listen to live vocals, or enjoy a cafe meal and a glass of wine during services. The ambiance is so welcoming it feels like nothing could ever harm you, and once you look at the back of the salon's chemical-free products, you'll realize you were right. Certified-organic colorists and stylists only use organic salon treatments, and eschew the harsh chemicals and ingredients that damage hair. They rely on the power of plants in shampoos that incorporate the natural sunblock of sunflower oil, and in coloring products that use toxin-free organic oils to create long-lasting, dimensional tones. This helps to not only give clients stylish and original 'dos, but also healthy locks that maintain styles better.
A warm, welcoming salon, Boardroom provides masculine customers with grooming services in a relaxed, upscale environment.
