About this business
From Our Editors
If a person is a reflection of her environment, then there is only one word to sum up Marie, one of A La Mode Studios' resident beauty experts: style. Chic decor hits visitors in the face as soon as they step through the studio's doors. On the left is a wall striped in off-white and light brown, and on the right is a wall of solid turquoise. The color schemes are completely different, but they complement each other perfectly—much like Marie and her fellow staffers.
A La Mode Studios isn't a typical salon or spa, and not just because it isn't located underwater. It's a collective of talented aestheticians, stylists, and other beauty professionals, each of whom leases a personal studio space. There, each independent contractor can add his or her personal decorations and products, and of course, administer their own lineup of beauty services. For Marie, that means cutting, styling, and coloring chic hairdo's for men and women. Between appointments, she and her fellow professionals often collaborate and share expert tips.
