Upon entering Champagne Salon, it’s immediately apparent the staff has an eye for beauty; virtually every square in of the salon’s walls are covered with artwork. Nimble hands call upon this aesthetic appreciation as they administer cuts, color treatments, and Brazilian blowouts to hair, or refine features with eyebrow threading. While the salon welcomes walk-ins, the team further demonstrates their commitment to clients by booking after-hours appointments
Picasso Day Spa & Salon takes its name from salon founder David Manaute's favorite artist. In many ways, the stylists channel the painting paragon by treating their clients as though they were canvases, using haircuts, color, waxing, and airbrush tanning to achieve an artistic personal aesthetic. The team makes its process collaborative, though, soliciting input from clients when coming up with a style, unlike Picasso—he pretended not to hear the things his canvases said. Their services take place in a building as equally beautiful as the custom looks they craft for clients. The spa's decor showcases a European atmosphere, and reproductions of Picasso's artwork hang on the walls.
