Last year, the successful salon moved to a new 3,000-square-foot, bi-level SoHo location with an industrial-chic décor, and creative director and partner Manuela Giannini came on board. Among the many expert color services offered at Maria Bonita Salon & Spa, balayage is a particular stylist specialty. "People have been crazy about sun-kissed brunettes and brighter blondes," Lacerda says. "We recently have been blending clients' root color with highlights, which creates an effortless, natural-looking color blend. We call it 'blurring the roots.' This technique is defi nitely a client favorite." Hair M|W PORTLAND, OR | @hairmw With three successful men's salons already in Portland, OR, Celeste Trapp opened Hair M|W in 2014, offering expert grooming and beauty services to both men and women in two separate, neighboring studios that share a lobby. The pampering experience at Hair M|W includes such extras as aromatherapy, a complimentary glass of wine or locally crafted Widmer beer and warm beanbags draped around the neck during color consults—especially popular on chilly winter days. When it comes to hair color, many male clients opt for the salon's gray camoufl age blending service, while highlights—both balayage and foil—are popular with female clients. Recently, the salon launched a well-received Frequent Dyer Express Base Color Service program, where clients receive a discount on monthly base color services, as well as 15 percent off other services and retail, with a yearly membership. "Basically, we do your base roots, we rinse you, we put you in a bun or a braid, and we send you out the door," Trapp says. "A lot of clients love this option to save money and time." Spoke & Weal PALO ALTO, CA | @spokeandweal Eco-conscious Silicon Valley tech workers now have a new beauty destination to visit since Spoke & Weal opened in Palo Alto, CA, earlier this year. The fi fth location of the Aveda salon for co-owners Jon Reyman and Christine Thompson relies on a foundation of technical effi ciency in cutting and color application to deliver expert services in a timely manner while respecting the integrity of the hair. When it comes to color work, natural-looking hair reigns at Spoke & Weal, from lived-in balayage to double-process and creative color looks. "Our inspiration comes from the natural world around us—how color refl ects in nature and its cycles," Thompson says.
