Like practicing parkour, keeping up with the latest fashions allows one to catch the attention of passersby and look cool and composed even when hanging off a high-rise ledge. Look dangerously stylish with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get $150 worth of designer clothing at Jbat Boutique.
Located inside the Douglas Carroll Salon, Jbat Boutique functions as the Triangle’s Milan, containing an explosion of designer clothing and accessories that teeters on the cutting edge of fashion. Professional fashion consultants help swap out parachute pants for up-to-the-minute pants styles ($158–$248), such as the versatile David Kahn denim line, Italian leg coverings by Farinaz and Fabrizio Gianni, and soft-hued Lauren Vidal khaki capris.
Instead of throwing on a heavy rug with a head hole cut into it, shoppers can fetch fetching tops ($88–$198) in the form of summer knits from One Girl Who, bright Rebecca Beeson sleeveless blouses, and Coco Mezon tie-dyed tanks and tees made from handmade fabrics and hand-dipped cotton. Meanwhile, accessory addicts can get their fix with designer sunglasses from Roberto Cavalli and Tom Ford ($395–$595) to make sophisticated statements without even opening their mouths.
Douglas Carroll Salon and Spa
Before setting out on his own, Douglas Carroll earned his stripes through years of training, studying under three-time British Hairdresser of the Year Anthony Mascolo and winning more than a dozen international awards along the way. His accolades earned him a client list peppered with athletes and TV personalities, and his cuts found their way onto the cover of numerous trade magazines.
Now the owner of his own salon and spa, Douglas oversees master, senior, and junior stylists who believe in his goal of exceeding client expectations with haircuts and color treatments. The Douglas Carroll Spa specializes in all-over pampering, doling out skin and body treatments that leave pores glowing and stress vanquished.
