Named a Salon of Distinction by Salon Today, the waterfront beautification abode's ultramodern décor features clean lines, modern salon seating, and a floor-tom table illuminated by stylish track lighting. Spontaneously sprouting strands can be coaxed back into a svelte head sculpture with services such as a haircut for women ($60+), men ($50+), or kids ($35+), while vibrant mop tops can be stylishly striped with a set of full highlights ($180+) or simply single process-colored ($70+) to complement skin tones and match a shiny suit of armor. Established by a veteran salon swami who has also spent many years working as a music producer, Salon Rock styles handsome heads and luxurious locks with expertise and a rock 'n’ roll edge. A team of mane magicians expertly tailors and trims tresses with skill and precision, many of who educate student stylists on techniques, products, and how to keep frizzy hair from being blown away and rolling down the street like tumbleweeds.
During 20-minute spray sessions, bronzing artists from Tan De Lis gild pale pelts with mobile spray-tan services that come straight to patrons' doors. Aestheticians first set up a tanning tent in about three minutes in a location of the client's choosing, be it in an office, in the backyard, or on the roof of the local bank. Lone-tan rangers can then opt for individual tanning sessions, and up to six people can take advantage of tanning parties, which include a complimentary bottle of champagne, as a prelude to birthday shindigs, girls' nights out, or bachelorette parties. The natural-looking bronze color lasts between five and seven days and is free of the orange streaks that can occur with take-home tanning creams or meltdowns at the burnt-sienna-crayon factory.
The mirrors lining Tiffany Lee Hair Design’s serene, white walls reflect a narrow, boutique hair studio filled with shelves of Goldwell coloring products. Within these intimate confines, artistically inclined stylists set to work on all types of hair, cutting, conditioning, and coloring locks and dressing up ‘dos with feather accessories as clients repose in cushy, black salon chairs interspersed with verdant potted plants. The haircare team is dedicated to delivering a personalized experience with every visit, eschewing the impersonal atmosphere and mechanized assembly lines of bigger salons.
Sub-Image Salon's stylists can get downright avant-garde with the looks they design: angular cuts, serpentine updos, color so finely variegated as to be almost opalescent. Of course, they'll also apply their immense creativity to the task of perfecting tamer cuts and color. Straightening treatments and perms can also be used to drastically change a person's or shag carpet's appearance.
Not only do the Commisso family⎯three bothers and their parents⎯own Commisso and Company, they also make up the salon’s staff of stylists and colorists. The family of hair gurus cut and color manes inside the sleek salon, whose black-and-white theme runs from the sheer white curtains and black salon chairs to the mandatory tuxedos worn by all who enter.
