  • There’s a brand new color room in the back, where clients can sit around a communal table and gossip, have a drink, and catch up on the latest celebrity news.

  • The color room doubles as our style library, lined with books ranging from art history and design to the classics, for your skimming pleasure.

  • A souped-up makeup station for Viviana to work her magic, carrying Becca Cosmetics , a line exclusive to Ulta, Sephora and Lord and Taylor.

  • Two blow-dry stations for after a color service or a quick mid-week pick-me-up.

  • A gorgeous patio lined with twinkling lights and lush greenery, to transport you from Philadelphia to a peaceful oasis while you wait for your appointment to begin.

  • A re-designed treatment room and shampoo area featuring the treatments you already know and love.

  • Last but never least, plenty of WINE — because we believe your trip to the salon should be an absolute treat.
