Classified as Redken Elite Salons, both Metro Salons locations staff a stable of stylists who keep abreast of the latest techniques with ongoing training in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Appointments start with complimentary consultations, wherein patrons dish on their favorite looks and show stylists their 10 favorite hairs. Then, hair pros draw on Redken, Wella, and Coppola products for a variety of services, from painting on highlights to trimming split ends. A final style ensures clients walk out ready to pose for sidewalk photo shoots or star in traffic-cam footage for the five o'clock news.
