Bloom Hair Studio
It's unlikely that anyone will ever confuse Wichita with New York City, though Manhattan is just a few hours away. Bloom Hair Studio, a concept salon influenced by the stylish artists' lofts and galleries of SoHo, is another slice of the Big Apple where you'd least expect it. The studio's stylists keep their hands on their shears and their eyes on trending fashions, crafting looks that would be right at home on the runway. But they don't limit their offerings to haircuts and highlights. Clients can also get their nails painted with vivid polish during relaxing mani-pedis.
