Renown uptown celebrity hairstylist Frederic Fekkai has opened a chic new 3,000 square foot Soho salon which provides high end clientele with: hair styling, coloring, manicure, pedicure, waxing, brow grooming and make-up application. Last week, I was one of the lucky gals on the receiving end of their services. The talented and sweet Creative Director, Fabrice Gili cut and coiffed my hair making me feel like part of the glamorous elite.
The salon has a very hip, energetic and calming aura to it. There is no sign out front, it's open, airy and industrial. It features private changing rooms with a coat check, a separate spa/pedicure area, as well as a central, yet private, hair washing room. This room was really something special. It was adorned with built in flat screen TVs and Japanese ergonomic electric chairs to adjust you when it's go time at the sink.
I especially appreciated my five minute long intense scalp massage and the refreshing cool rinse to help close the cuticles on my hair shaft to keep it looking shiny. I also had the option to cocktail or not - after all it was happy hour time at the salon!
This location offers extended hours to specially cater to its dedicated clients. While at the salon, feel free to relax on the dark brown leather lounges, have an espresso at the long coffee bar in the center of the room, catch up on Sugar site surfing or download some music. The salon has both a Wi-Fi connection and iPod docking stations.
