Best Salon With A Conscience 2010
When this swanky salon with the cheeky name opened last year, it became an instant success — at least with MT readers, who named it best hair salon and best nail salon. A year later, Curl Up & Dye continues to be a reader fave, and it’s no wonder, because the salon’s indie chic decor — purple walls, sparkling concrete floor, mod chandeliers — creates an atmo that’s posh yet free of pretension, and the gracious and professional staff works beauty magic. The salon boasts products too — including its own Cass Corridor brand — that aren’t tested on animals, are almost always natural, organic and fairly priced. Whether you’ve been massaged, coifed, manicured or shaved, you’ll stroll out feeling brand-fucking-new.
