Even with his 13 years of salon experience and training from Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Paul Mitchell, it still came as a surprise to Michael S. Krempel, owner and lead stylist at Michael Urban Hair Studio, to get a call from MTV. The producers of MTV's Made had selected a local teen to appear in the show and chose Krempel's salon to give him a makeover to build his confidence as a hip-hop dancer.
In addition to boosting self-esteem on television, Krempel and his staff of stylists give clients confidence-inspiring looks with cuts, colors, and Marcia Teixeira Brazilian keratin hair treatments. Patrons slip into cherry-red styling chairs amid shelves brimming with products from Keune, Mixture, and Kevin Murphy as well as Featherlock feather hair extensions. Those notes of red carry over onto artwork flecked with crimson and cabinets the color of a rebellious bull’s ear piercing.
Suna of Suna Salon & Spa has culled beauty secrets from all over the world, holding aesthetic licenses in Japan, Italy, France, Germany, and the United States. She voyaged from the shores of Istanbul to the wild, unexfoliated beaches of America 25 years ago to establish her first salon. Over the decades, Suna has gathered around her an elite team of beauticians with a range of expertise and an arsenal of quality products.
Her staff brightens nail treatments with Shellac and OPI polishes and deepens massages with hot stones. Stylists keep cranial shrubs in tiptop shape with Schwarzkopf Igora hair color and conditioning products from Moroccanoil. Suna herself specializes in threading, the ancient Middle Eastern art of removing hair with nothing but a strand of cotton and an elaborate system of cantilevers.
Fresh fish, shellfish, and lean meat blend with spices at Maemi Peruvian Cuisine, where South American street fare and carefully plated entrees intermingle atop tables layered in colorful fabrics. Thinly sliced octopus and grilled steak crowned in fried egg showcase Peru’s national cuisine, as do tall glasses of Inca Kola and Cusqueña beer. The chefs put an Asian twist on appetizers, which include Japanese-style tempura and spring rolls, and servers unveil dishes amid booths, Peruvian artwork, and woven tapestries made from repurposed holiday sweaters.
Before each appointment, BU Salon's staff helps clients decompress by serving them a glass of wine or a cup of tea. After guests settle in, a hairstylist, aesthetician, massage therapist, or nail technician leads them away toward their booked service—perhaps having their eyes accentuated with a set of Xtreme Lashes extensions or maybe a cut and style with Kérastase products. The studio envelops visitors in a light, breezy atmosphere where floors of antique-looking wood and terra-cotta tiles hold up free-standing mirrors and modern salon chairs. As one of the few retailers of Jamie Jewellery London, the salon also houses a collection of adornments popular with celebrities such as Kyle Minogue and Sienna Miller.
