If you want your salon to impress the critics of New York magazine, follow Salon Champu's lead and double down on customer comfort. At the full-service vegan salon, the staff—helmed by seasoned stylist-aesthetician Richard Cacace—augments its hairstyling, laser hair-removal, and anti-aging services with complimentary wine, tablets, and WiFi, which is computer talk for Windows Five. With customers relaxed and unwound, the staff gets to work using advanced diode lasers and vegan Unite products from London to revamp appearances. For further proof that Cacace's blueprint is working: the salon has attracted press from the New York Times and CNN Living.
