The New Black Industries
The marble reception desk should have been our first clue. This salon has an uber luxe, elegant attitude, and the interiors are meant to evoke the impression of being on a fashion set with strategic lighting, full-length mirrors, exposed concrete and a minimalist colour scheme, and they only stock top-tier brands including Oribe, Christophe Robin and, hello, Balmain. There’s even a specific area where the team like to shoot their clients post-styling session for Instagram (theirs and/or yours). We sat down at the bench, which runs down the centre of the salon, for a cut, colour and blowdry, which we can honestly say, is one of the best we’ve ever had.
