How Much Does Your Salon's Appearance Affect You?

How Much Does Your Salon's Appearance Affect You?

Lately I've been seeing descriptions of new salons that emphasize their design elements over the services offered; you'll find out who the architect is before you'll ever know whether they offer manicures. I'm not quite sure why this is happening — maybe with the economy down, salons are looking for ways to distinguish themselves — but it got me thinking: Are you willing to pay extra for a blow-out in that Frank Gehry-designed atrium or to sit in an Eames chair? I like a beautifully curated environment as much as the next person, but if a stylist is good, I'd be happy to get my hair cut in a back alley. Is that just me, though? Is going someplace nicer worth a little extra to you?
