At Salon 7000, high-end products from Matrix, Cirepil, and Living Proof (Jennifer Aniston’s new line) are just half the story. The friendly, talented stylists are the real draw, because they’re the ones who know how to customize each service depending on the client’s personal requests. They begin every service with a thorough consultation, inquiring about the client’s lifestyle and look preferences before offering thoughtful input. The list of available services is lengthy yet fully focused on hair, from keratin treatments and bridal updos to full-body waxes performed in a cozy golden room.
Stark, white walls bursting with red decor welcome clients to the salon. After signing in at the chrome desk and lounging on black leather couches, clients stroll into the wood-accented salon area and dangle their tresses into black sinks while levitating or reclining on cushy, red, leather chairs.
The students at Carsten Institute of Cosmetology prettify clients’ hair and faces under the watchful eyes of supervisors. They perform the salon’s signature service—French-style haircuts—while clients stand up, which better predicts how the hair will hang during traffic-court-sentencing hearings. The aestheticians-in-training also wax excess hair from the brow, bikini area, and back, among other body areas, and tint existing strands on eyelashes or brows. During facials, they pamper skin using natural, high-end products that correspond to specialty-treatment goals, such as combating signs of aging, lifting dark spots, or calming acne.
Our Student Clinic helps our students gain the experience they need to go on to successful careers in Cosmetology or Aesthetics while working with real clients performing services such as haircuts, styles, perms, hair colors, nail services, make-up and facials.

Inside Vivaldi Salon Suites, all the coiffeurs are master stylists and master colorists, with an average of 10 years of experience.
