The earliest salons were informal gatherings where B-list philosophers gibbered away so they couldn't hear themselves dying of plague. Get an earful of the modern salon’s soothing hair-dryer purrs and scissor chop-chops instead with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of services at Salon Dragonfly.
Soaked in sleek, modern elegance, Salon Dragonfly coddles world-weary locks and skin with its selection of beauty-boosting services and botanically based Aveda products. An experienced fleet of stylists descends upon frazzled strands, snipping them into stylish shapes with expertly administered haircuts ($45+ for women, $30+ for men) or adding chromatic appeal with partial ($70+) or all-over highlights ($90+). Rejuvenate skins sullied by years of sunning in volcanic calderas with a completely natural facial ($60+), or blink unabashedly with a full set of battable Xtreme eyelash extensions (price upon consultation). Salon Dragonfly also paves smooth dermal surfaces with its waxing services.
When Jen Phumin and her mentor Janice Jones—a 40-year veteran of the beauty industry—opened their salon, they chose the name Salon Dragonfly because of the dragonfly's association with change, adventure, and prosperity in Asian culture. Together with a staff of trained stylists, they seek to fulfill their clients' desire for transformation. After consulting with guests, stylists use Davines, Morrocanoil, DevaCurl, and Jane Iredale products during trims, formal styling, and color treatments. As they work, the salon's expansive windows bathe stylists in natural light, and dragonfly artwork and sage-hued walls inspire tranquility.
