Here, the team of experienced stylists range from "brilliant" to "Jedi of hair," and you can pick and choose your path to beauty. Who knew it could be this easy?How many times have we blindly waltzed into a salon as new customers, nervously clutching our ripped-from-a-magazine picture of an "elegant, yet sexily rugged" celebrity 'do, having no idea who our stylist would be, how much they'd charge, or whether they'd turn us into a toy poodle by the end of it all? A lot to handle, indeed. But what if we could choose exactly how much we wanted to spend on a cut and know that the person holding the scissors is either already a master of the craft or well on their way there? Sounds pretty ideal—which is why we have some serious love for G Salon, an intimate salon and spa on Piedmont where the team of experienced stylists range from "brilliant" to "Jedi of hair," and you can pick and choose your path to beauty. Who knew it could be this easy?
In our opinion, the best gauge of a salon's quality isn't the trendiness of the decor or the cleverness of the place's name: it's the way the customers look when they're leaving. And, honestly, the newly styled people coming out of G Salon always seem to be smiling, strutting their stuff and working that extra sass that comes with a fancy new coiffure. According to owner Craig, that's the long and short of their goal at G Salon: a comfortable, classy environment without a trace of stuffiness or prettier-than-thou snobbery. He's not kidding about the "comfortable" part, either: G Salon also offers a range of spa and aesthetician services, and each stylist, aesthetician and massage therapist is armed with G Salon's arsenal of top-of-the-line products, from French hair care brand Phyto to skin care line Dermalogica. And of course, there's that keratin smoothing treatment that apparently tames your mane into a silken work of art, much like going from this to this. Seems like an upgrade to us.
