Owners Angi Snodgrass and Cathy Sturm helm a team of beauty professionals who tend to locks, nails, and waxing with salon and spa services that feature high quality products from brands such as Davines, Aveda, and Brocato. A sudsy shampoo first strips dirt, oil, and fedoras from hair before skilled fingers massage scalps and shoulders against a scentscape of relaxing aromatherapy. Stylists then wield a frizz-foiling combination of a blow dryer and flatiron to endow locks with a polished finish. Next, a chocolate manicure lavishes hands with a warm, chocolate paraffin treatment, a nail trim, and a fresh coat of polish. Clients stay cozy by sipping herbal tea and resting napes atop a warm neck wrap. As a tasty farewell, the salon sends each guest packing with chocolates and a sample hair product bundled together in a complimentary goodie bag.
Cass & Company Salon
After stylist Angi Snodgrass opened her salon, she dubbed it the Cass & Company Salon to foreground the importance of her entire team. The tight-knit crew, designated Level 4 to Level 1 stylists, hone their techniques at workshops held across the country and even teach new talent on site.
Within the chic space, the stylists cut, color, and retexturize locks, fortifying strands with helpings of Benniefactor, Reference of Sweden, Aveda, and Gage for Men products. They do their work next to the salon’s sleek grey walls and under a ceiling lofty enough to allow someone to fly a kite beneath it. Elsewhere in the salon, technicians perform Aveda facials, body waxes, and massage therapists administer deep-tissue massages in private rooms.
