Eleven 11 Salon
The recipe for the runway-ready styles that emerge within Eleven 11 Salon begins with its location: a 3,000-square-foot studio designed by architect Eddie Maestri and interior designer Jamie Carroll, situated in Dallas's luxurious Uptown neighborhood in front of Hotel Zaza, and across the street from Hotel Crescent and the Ritz Carlton. In this spa-like setting, stylists—many of whom also serve as educators for leading beauty companies—call on both time-honored and cutting-edge techniques to create stylish, flattering looks for men and women.
The service menu goes far beyond haircuts and styles to include hair extensions and bold color treatments ranging from classic highlights to balayage, a freehand technique that creates a gradient ombre effect to suggest time spent lying on the beach or coloring your hair in a sunset. The staff can transform hair's texture, too: Japanese straightening treatments leave hair smooth and straight until it grows out, and Brazilian Blowouts control curl and boost shine for up to three months. Aesthetic experts also perform makeup applications and bridal services. The salon extends its regular Tuesday through Saturday business hours to include services by appointment on Sundays and Mondays, so clients with strapped schedules can always find a time that works for them, seven days a week.
