Chroma Salon and Nails
Aveda Institute–trained Vannath Duch spends his days as a director-level hairstylist inside Chroma Salon and Nails. An eye-catching chandelier illuminates his work station—a modern black chair, vintage desk, and framed mirror affixed to exposed brick—as he cuts, colors, and straightens hair. When not elbow deep in bowls of hair dye, Vannath grows his brain with new skills formed during classes at Vidal Sassoon, Shu Uemura, and Kérastase.
