Beverly Hills Color Bar
Leaning on a strident application process, Beverly Hills Color Bar recruits stylists for their artistic handling of complex color treatments, expertise with all types of hair, and their outgoing personalities. Colorists work outside the boundaries of traditional highlights as the quirkily named services denote, splashing hair with spots of color during the You've Been Punk'd, or making eyes pop by highlighting a few strands up front with the Face Framer. Notable for its industrial aesthetic and splashes of color, the airy salon looks like it was designed to house the minimalist sculptures of Donald Judd, and like any good contemporary-art exhibit, the salon's black-wood color bar displays a meticulously arranged spectrum of hair-dye products. Carefully smeared black paint gives texture to the poured-concrete floor, and geometric, gray leather salon chairs offset full-length mirrors rimmed in vibrant tangerine.
