The lowdown: Fashionistas, be warned: this five-month old Brickell salon is not for those seeking to come out looking like their same old self. This spot is all about transformation. Owner Trini Warner, a French beauty expert and stylist, opened this full service salon and spa with “masstige” — prestige for the masses — on her mind, meaning that those who step inside expecting to get a luxurious haircut, massage or facial of their choice at a reasonable price won’t leave disappointed.
The ‘hood: Tucked in the downstairs area of a brand-new Brickell building, the spot defines “Downtown chic.” Parking might be hard to find in metered spots available in the area, but you can also valet park at the building next door for $10. The walk is short and quick.
The vibe: Sleek white walls and chairs, bright lights and cozy spa rooms make for a high-end, yet friendly, salon which brings French sophistication to clients.
The highlights: Here style and personal service come first. As soon as you sit on your chair, a highly trained stylist will sit you down for a recommendation to assure that you’ll leave with what you wish for. The salon and spa uses L’oreal Professionnel products — Warner is the brand ambassador for the line — and highlights include the base color ($60 and up), shampoo/cut with a head massage ($40 and up) and the Tailored to Me Facial ($90), which will leave you glowing. In need of an extra pick me up? Add-ons, such as an eye mask ($30) and aromatherapy scents ($20) are also available with each facial.
The sweet deal: Mention this story when you book a Tailored to Me Facial and obtain a complimentary eye treatment or receive a free L’Oreal Serie Expert Powerdose Treatment with any service purchased.
