It’s far more than an ordinary “barber shop” but Elegance Studio is the place on Melrose Ave. for the ultimate barber shop experience.
The shop offers haircuts and specialty design cuts, bald Elegance shaving, trendy styles, beard trimming and shaving, beard color, wax and facials, mustache trims, and eyebrows. In short, men can be super stylishly coiffed and supremely hip all over with a visit to the salon.
Despite the glamor of the scene, it’s simple to experience Elegance Studio. Guys can pick their own barber online – there are nine barbers and two stylists currently available, schedule an appointment, and come on in. The booking system has been designed so that barbers can take their time with every client. With a personal television in front of every barber’s chair, a comfortable lounge area with sports playing on one of eight big television screens, and even a photoshoot area so that clients can share their new look on social media, Elegance Studio has thought of just about everything guys want.
The salon is part of a parent company, Elegance USA, which has been offering high quality, unique cosmetics worldwide for over 20 years. Nationwide, Elegance USA also offers pro educators to service barbershops carrying their products.
Elegance Studio team members include the salon’s original celebrity barber team. Yadiel Alberto Rodriguez, a.k.a. Arod the Barber connected with Ramon Zavala and Marcus P. Hatch in El Paso, Texas. They began assisting with barber competitions around the country, and bringing Elegance hair, facial, and shaving products into barber shops. The trio became sponsored barbers at the salon, and focused on getting every man the right look. Today, clients can book Arod and MP, along with a cadre of other hair artists, as well as shop the Elegance pro line of hair and skin care products.
From hair care bundles, styling paste, and clear, skin-protecting shaving gel to facial care the Elegance line is distinctive, high-quality, and designed to be kind to skin, hair, and beard. One popular new product is the Elegance Black Mask, a deep cleansing peel-off mask made with vitamins and plant extracts to soften skin while removing dead cells, excess oil, and blackheads. Another new product: beard oil that helps to eliminate flaking and improve beard health.
But products aside, it’s the styling at Elegance Studio that draws clients for life. From creating unique, artistic designs and patterns for the hair to simply a stellar cut or color, these barbers are pros all the way.
And are you a hungry man? There’s food catering available with 48 hours notice. And, accompanying every service, clients receive a free drink and blissful hot towel service.
Don’t think their celebrity barber status means clients aren’t treated as if they were the celebs. In fact, the staff is well known for enthusiastic personal greetings and conversation along with leisurely, scheduled appointments that never rush the cut. Plus – the music is happening, and the salon vibe is chill. Open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, it’s easy for guys to look “elegant” the Elegance way.
