Owner Kim Vu started her career as an investment-banking consultant, but along the way discovered her love of beauty, fashion and design—all of which are fused together at this two-story salon. Although you won’t find Vu wielding a blow dryer, she hired nine staffers to offer traditional hair and spa services. Women can enjoy a full range of treatments, including cuts ($45–$125), single-process color ($70–$170), partial highlights ($95–$250) and Oribe conditioning treatments ($55), while men can nab chops ($45–$65) and color ($70). Guinot and Valmont products are used for spa services, such as waxing ($8–$50), facials ($80–$245) and deep-pore cleansing ($125–$180). Drop by the salon on Thursday and Friday between 7 and 10pm for Champagne + Blow ($35), the perfect precursor to a night out, with blowouts, music and plenty of gratis champagne.
