To uphold its promise of delivering a New York?style salon experience, Bonne Vie Salon adopted many of its stylists from the city after they earned certifications from Vidal Sassoon and Frederic Fekkai. The salon's d?cor also suggests grandeur worthy of the Big Apple: a golden chandelier, sandy-colored columns, and a flood of natural light greet clients as they enter the 1,800-square-foot space.
The setting befits the salon's high-end services, which include trendy Japanese straightening treatments and a hot cutting method that uses scissors heated above 200 degrees to slice through hair without damaging the ends. Italian-made, naturally derived Davines products supplement each service, bathing locks in luxury so that clients don't have to don a top hat full of caviar.
Recently awarded Best of 2013 Winter Park by Orlando Magazine, the salon sits next to an expanse of reserved parking for clients, as well as restaurants, galleries, and museums. Many of Bonne Vie's hairdressers speak two or even three languages, transforming styling sessions into learning experiences for clients who want to brush up on their wookiee snarls.
