There’s a certain New York City element to Salon Perri, and not just because proprietor Charles Anthony underwent training there. He and his staff believe that NYC is more than just a location; they see it as a symbol of beauty and sophistication, and they cultivate Manhattan-esque looks that could garner a second glance in London and Paris, as well as the Big Apple. Their elegant haircuts, flattering color treatments, and keratin infusions factor into this philosophy, as do mani-pedis that complete the picture of put-together glamour.
But though the stylists work to craft big city styles, they do so with the charm of an intimate small-town salon. Take, for instance, the men’s lounge, where cold beers are served during hot-towel treatments, haircuts, and massaging shampoos. Salon Perri also features beauty services exclusively for young adults who need more glamour to advance to the next clubhouse level.
Hairquarters has cultivated a mature elegance throughout its 40 years in business. In the salon, sconces are mounted on the wall like dark wineglasses, casting a glow on the polished hardwood floors. Vintage mirrors reflect the stylists as they transform tresses with high-end Keratase and Aveda products. Deeper into the facility, pedicure nooks outfitted with black leather banquettes and gold throw pillows offer a soothing retreat, enhanced by the rippling water of footbaths. Guests may also relax in a private room as facials or microdermabrasions are administered by the spa’s skilled esthetician
