Joni's on Broadway
Recently I've been discussing some of the newer spots on Broadway, and now it's time to mention a classic. I've been a client at Joni's on Broadway for several years, and each time I visit, I leave feeling relaxed and renewed. It's such a combination of things- the atmosphere in the salon is classy and gorgeous, the music is always the right combination of soothing and upbeat, but really, Joni herself is such a nurturing, warm person, and you can't help but feel refreshed after spending time with her. She truly cares about each of her clients, and takes the time to make sure they are happy with their look. Joni says that the goal of her salon is for people to feel the presence of God and to be able to relax and unwind. It really is a special place.
Once, I read this article in Marie Claire about a salon that offers a $1000 haircut, and really, I thought, a $24 haircut from Joni's isn't all that different. Like the $1000 haircut, clients usually have Joni and the salon all to themselves, making for a rather peaceful experience. Also, Joni is always willing to talk at length about what the client wants from their cut, problem areas and solutions. She often serves a beverage, like a cup of her favorite tea, and she is able to provide deep conditioning treatments when needed. My favorite perk at Joni's, however, which I've never experienced at any other salon, is the amazing scalp massage Joni provides during the shampoo. She was a licensed massage therapist in Minnesota, and she utilizes that training to help her clients feel extra-relaxed. It's a real gift!
Joni offers a wide variety of services- haircuts, color, highlights, manicures, pedicures, facial waxing, facials and more. To schedule an appointment, call 524-9211.
