Verdant plants, potted orchids, and a built-in stone fountain signal a natural atmosphere at Air Salon & Spa, which spruces up bodies with organic products—including Davines and Alterna Hemp—and environmentally friendly practices. Dedicated to being a zero-impact business, the salon furnishes its waiting room and stations with an assortment of reclaimed materials and vintage pieces, relying on soy-based inks for written correspondence and drafts of the Constitution. The walls sport coats of low-VOC paint, and the staff cleans and maintains the space using nontoxic, earth-friendly cleaning products. As a result of this commitment to eco-excellence, patrons can breath deeply as they undergo manicures or hair treatments in comforting massage chairs.
The salon and day spa at Moderne may not be far apart physically, but each one feels like a completely different place. The bustling salon is home to a trio of stylists who boast specialties in hair design, extensions, dimensional and corrective color, and Brazilian blowouts, which leave hair straighter, sleeker, and perfect for princes’ climbing attempts. This bustling salon floor slips away as guests enter the doors to the day spa, where they’re greeted by relaxing music. There, massage therapists perform deep-tissue and hot-stone massages, and a nail technician paints fingernails and toenails. The aestheticians can also custom-blend facials, peels, and back facials for clients.
