Recently I was honored to attend the private media mixer for Loop Salon. This new eco-conscious hair haven is located right in the heart of midtown, just off Ponce De Leon, and caters to all hair types and textures. Curly and textured girls will be uber excited to know that they are the only Ouidad certified salon in the Atlanta area and also carry an impressive selection of PHYTO products! The location offers a perfect blend of hipness and health consciousness, and their presence makes a great addition to the revitalization process taking place along the Ponce corridor.

Owners Lindsay West and Rick Thompson made the media mixer a memorable one with their friendly and welcoming dispositions. They style team was also a treat to interact with, as they too added such a positive vibe to the atmosphere. Guests were treated to a tour of the salon, which boasts an eclectic, vintage, funky and chic appeal. The circular Feng shui design is a nod to the business name and their goal is to creative "a full circle holistic beauty experience." We even had an opportunity to chat with the interior designer, Tavia Forbes, and pick her brain about the concept she brought to life!

As for services, Loop will include styling, haircuts, color, blowouts, manis/pedis and other forms of grooming. The salon's mission is to become a beauty haven for everyday working women (of all hair types) with a strong emphasis on proper hair care and maintenance. The PHYTO reps were also on hand to demo their product line and their "nano-scope hair analysis," a system that examines your scalp to give your stylist a more in-depth diagnosis on how to diagnose hair issues and recommend treatment options. Once I'm done with my protective style break I'll definitely stop in for a PHYTO treatment and to see what's going on with my scalp to get a better understanding of how to care for my natural tresses! I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that "Textured Hair Architect" Danielle Carrington is now a member of the Loop family! Danielle did my big chop last year and helped me ease into my new natural lifestyle!

All in all, I'm truly excited about the opening of this salon. The concept is fantastic and I love the "we give back to the community" attitude each of the stylists and owners possess. When it's time to update your 'do, I thoroughly suggest you give Loop Salon a call. I know I will!
