This popular full-service salon and spa occupies the same former foundry building as an art gallery (Gallery Imperato) and a restaurant (The Wine Market), creating the potential for an entire day spent wandering the huge, sun-lit rooms of this enormous historic brick and wood building. The hair salon area is large, with lots of chairs and stations, so there’s never a long wait.
There are eight spa treatment rooms, offering everything from massages to microdermabrasion, hair removal, and even Botox treatments; the comprehensive services list is one reason for Studio 921’s popularity. The other is the staff, who have developed rabidly loyal (and satisfied) customers and clients that keep the store bouncing and busy.
