Elan Sassoon Opens Mizu Salons
Partners with Mandarin Oriental in Boston and Bumble Vets in New York
BOSTON, October 16 /PRNewswire/
Mizu Boston, the first of two new salons by Elan Sassoon opens today in the new Mandarin Oriental, Boston hotel. Mizu New York will follow in early November at its tony Park Avenue locale, headed up by famed Bumble and bumble veterans, Damian Santiago and Michael “Vaughn” Acord, who partnered with Sassoon on the venture.
“My goal is to create the best salon possible,” Elan Sassoon, said. “We recruited a group of talented stylists who are guided and inspired by design, then created an environment that promotes peace, balance and an appreciation of beauty.”
Both locations invested in top architects-Niall McLaughlin Architects in Boston and Leslie Jill Hanson in New York-to achieve the desired salon aesthetic. Each space incorporates experience-enhancing technology like Myvu glasses that offer television and movie entertainment in the stylist’s chair, WiFi, and use of complimentary laptops available to every client. To further streamline the experience, at the end of an appointment, wireless check-out systems will complete any service and product transactions while sitting at the stylist station, shortening time spent waiting to pay at reception.
Mizu Boston and Mizu New York will offer haircutting, hair color/highlighting, blow dry, and up-do services starting at US$125 for a cut and US$250 for color. Plans are in the works for additional salons in Los Angeles, London and Dubai. A new salon academy, one of only two in the world to offer dormitories, is slated to open in Boston fall 2009.
