On Saturday, October 15, from 6-9pm, Globe Salon invites you to join us for a celebration of our 16th anniversary — eight of them in Downtown Las Vegas!
The party will be at Downtown’s Tenaya Creek Brewery (831 West Bonanza Rd, 702-362-7335), another local success story that began life in 1999 and recently relocated to a beautiful new downtown brewpub. Tenaya Creek has evolved into a full-scale craft brewery, and attendees will enjoy a Happy Hour priced selection of Vegas-made craft beer (Happy Hour to 7pm). Wine and soft drinks are also available.

Globe Salon just completed an anniversary photo shoot with Square Shooting Photography, L Makeup Institute, and wardrobe stylist KT Moss. The party will showcase a selection of those photos.
Attendees will also enjoy the sounds of Jessica Manolo (to 7pm), whom Las Vegas Weekly called one of the “Best New Voice in Vegas.” Guests of Globe Salon will also sample complimentary snacks from the Rolling Fusion food truck (while supplies last!), samples of gelato served by downtown’s Art of Flavors, and tasty donut samples from Donut Bar. As a bonus for current guests of Globe Salon, the first 50 to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org will receive their first two drinks on us (with a confirmation email), so RSVP now!
The event’s charity partner is the Rape Crisis Center, so bring cash and be prepared to win some great prizes donated by local businesses.
All of us at Globe Salon are thrilled to have made it so far, but we couldn’t have done it without you. Come raise a glass on Saturday, and we’ll celebrate together!
Parking: Tenaya Creek has its own lot on site.
We haven’t hosted a First Friday event at Globe Salon for a few months, and there is no better month than November to do another. The days grow shorter, but the weather is near perfect and holiday season is fast approaching. As Thursday is the 13th anniversary of the day we first opened (as well as Halloween and Nevada Day!), November’s First Friday presents a perfect opportunity to host a fall event, and to raise a glass for our anniversary.
Please join us at the salon on Friday, November 1, from 6–9pm, for a fall celebration. Since it’s First Friday, we’re hosting Birds of a Feather, an exhibit featuring new multimedia works by homegrown artist Sam Reza. Since it’s a party, we’ve asked DJ Rex Dart (you may know him from the Double Down Saloon and Velveteen Rabbit) to crank out some of his super eclectic grooves. And since it’s also Dia de los Muertos, we’ll have some tasty Mexican snacks, a pitcher of margaritas, and a bottle or two of bubbly, for good measure.
We’ll also be launching our Thirteen-Dollar Deals, including $13 Brow Waxes (when added to any other Skin Care Service; reg $23), $13 Kerastase Instant Treatments (added to any cut, color or blowout; reg $20) and $13 off any full size shampoo + conditioner pair (all available through Thanksgiving only).
So guests, neighbors and friends, we hope you can stop by this First Friday and enjoy some art, music and a good time with your friends at Globe Salon, right in the heart of Las Vegas and its downtown Arts District!
WHAT: Your #DTLVsalon does First Friday right
WHERE: Globe Salon, of course
WHEN: Friday, November 1, 6-9pm
Parking tight? The meters along Fourth Street (right by the salon) are almost always available; cash or credit.
Every few months, the team at Globe Salon gets the urge to do something fun on First Friday, the homegrown arts festival that has blossomed into a full-blown street fair and block party for the revitalizing downtown neighborhood we call home.
What better time to join the fray than May, the month Las Vegas was founded (and just a few blocks from us at Main and Fremont streets!). This year, our young city celebrates its 108th birthday, and we’d like you to join us for a celebration.
Native Las Vegas artist Jerry Misko will show some of his signature neon-inspired works, while DJ Carey Cowart (who you may remember from our Fashion Fling) provides the music. And, we’ll be toasting our town with a tub full of a tasty treat called The High Roller, provided by The Lady Silvia.
Art, music, cocktails… Plus, we’ll have some great retail offers, Vegas-themed rings from another native, The Jeweler’s Daughter, and drawings for complimentary skin care services at Globe Salon. Also, as our neighbors at Amanda Harris Gallery are opening a new exhibition that night, you can make Soho Lofts a great jumping-off point for your First Friday festivities.
Whether you stop in for a quick hello, or stick around a bit, make Globe Salon a stop on your First Friday tour this week. We’d love to see you!

Getting hired at Globe Salon is not easy; it’s a careful, multiple-step process that takes time. That process is an important one that helps us find the right fit for our close-knit family of professionals. But we need to grow; our success demands it.
As mentioned in this article in the Las Vegas Sun this week, Globe Salon will be holding a screening event on Monday, April 8, from 11am–2pm. We hope that this Casting Call will help to shorten the time required to properly screen candidates and find the right ones to join our team.
We are specifically seeking hair professionals with less than three years experience (for an accelerated Fast Track Assistant Program) and recent graduates (for our Full Assistant Program). Please visit the Join Our Team page for important details on what we seek and what to expect at Globe Salon. In fact, we encourage you to browse our entire website to see if what we do is right for you.
Candidates must bring a resume (including professional, educational, and/or personal references), your current Nevada State Board of Cosmetology license (or, if you are a student with less than 100 hours remaining, or a recent graduate, a letter of recommendation from your school), a portfolio (if you have one), and prepare for the possibility of an immediate preliminary interview.
WHAT: Hairstylist Casting Call
WHEN: Monday, April 8, 11am–2pm
WHERE: Globe Salon
NO PHONE CALLS.
We hope you set aside some of your Black Friday budget, because today is Small Business Saturday, and lots of your favorite locally-owned and independent shops are celebrating with specials. At Globe Salon, we’re offering 20% off all retail items (limited to one item per SKU, please), and a free copy of the beautiful book, Crave Las Vegas: A Guide to Women-Owned Small Businesses, a $25 retail value free with any retail purchase and while supplies last.
Plenty of businesses around downtown are participating in Small Business Saturday, so to help you find some of those deals designed to get shoppers to support local business, the Las Vegas Review-Journal has published a brief on the events. After stopping at Globe, make sure you skip around the Arts District (say Hi! to our pals at Electric Lemonade and Trifecta Gallery), browse new and vintage furniture and home accessories along Main Street, and then skip north a few blocks to the first Neon Bazaar, a shopping fair showcasing some great local businesses and offering a chance to score unique items for the holidays.
Have fun, and we hope to see you today!

WHAT: Globe Salon Fashion Fling III: Down the Rabbit Hole
WHERE: Tim Bavington Studio, 418 W Mesquite Ave LV NV 89106
WHEN: Saturday, November 10, 2012, 7:30pm–11pm
WHY: celebrate Globe Salon’s 12th anniversary & benefit LV ArtReach
Valet Parking • 21+ • Cocktail Attire
Many of you know that Globe Salon has donated quite a bit to many charities over our 12 years. We consider ourselves citizens of a vibrant, healthy community, and we love to give back whenever we can. It’s been way too long since our last major event (a fundraiser for Three Square), and finally the time has come for another Globe Salon Fashion Fling!
Tickets are limited, so please buy them now for Saturday, November 10 and join Globe Salon for Fashion Fling III: Down the Rabbit Hole, a charity party celebrating the salon’s 12th anniversary. The event will be held at the studio of internationally-renowned artist Tim Bavington (418 W Mesquite Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89106). Valet parking will be available on-site.
We have a host of set designers, A/V artists and event specialists, along with some of our favorite restaurants, transforming the Tim Bavington Studio into a super-cool party venue, so prepare yourselves for a wonderful, artistic evening of eats, stimulating socializing, and an “Alice”-themed fashion show produced by Globe Salon and showcasing clothing from the Gypsy Den, makeup by L Makeup Institute, and hair by the Globe Salon team (with creative direction by our own Samantha O’Brien).
For Fashion Fling III, Globe Salon has selected as its benefactor the LV Art Reach program of Casa de Luz, a 501(c)3 non-profit committed to furthering the arts by and for inner-city kids in Las Vegas. LV ArtReach provides quality opportunities for underprivileged youth to expand their skills and self esteem through new creative forms of expression and the unique mentorship of local artists.
Our location host, the internationally-renowned Las Vegas artist Tim Bavington, has designed an impressive limited-edition t-shirt (Tim’s first foray into clothing design) that will be available for purchase only at the event. There will also be a small-but-powerful silent auction (did someone say iPads? Jewelry from the Jeweler’s Daughter? Photos by the kids at ArtReach? Yes, please!). All proceeds add to the donation. Most event costs are being provided or underwritten by our generous community partners (see below), and Globe Salon hopes to donate close to 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales to LV ArtReach.
Tickets are available by clicking HERE. Bundles of four (4) save 10%.
Please note that we are limiting the number of attendees so that everyone can enjoy comfortable socializing and plenty of eats and drinks provided by our sponsors. Because of this, we do not anticipate selling tickets at the door. We hope you can join us!

If you haven’t yet been to Las Vegas’s very own homegrown storytelling event, The Tell, you are missing out on a particularly satisfying piece of authentic local culture. Launched by local attorney, writer, man-about-downtown — and, yes, Globe Salon guest — Dayvid Figler, and sponsored by Seven weekly, The Tell is inspired by other nationally famous storytelling events such as NYC’s The Moth and Portland’s Back Fence — both of which have invited Mr. Figler to tell stories on their stages. Locally, even the Globe Salon team has found itself on The Tell stage, with both Samantha O’Brien and James Reza sharing stories with storytelling aficionados. Think of it as a live version of This American Life.
The latest installment of The Tell is coming Thursday, October 18. Usually held at the El Cortez, this time, in advance of the Vegas Valley Book Fest, the event is being staged at downtown’s Mob Museum, in the recently restored historic federal courtroom. The theme is “I Fought The Law,” and will feature stories told live and off the cuff by longtime Review-Journal columnist John L. Smith, actor Joey Kern, Metropolitan Police Dept cop/poet Harry Fagel and more.
Tell tickets are available here, and they are going fast (Figler says, “Keep trying even if it says Sold Out; we’ll be releasing SRO tickets soon!”). Don’t say we didn’t tell you.
We’ve been around long enough to remember life before First Friday (this month is the art and street festival’s 10th anniversary … and our 12th!), so you can believe us when we say it is truly amazing how this event has grown, particularly during the past year. Setup now starts the day before to accommodate the tens of thousands of people who come into downtown Las Vegas each month, and there truly is something for everyone. Las Vegas has never seen a festival this successful outside of the 1970s heyday of Helldorado, when that western festival brought almost the entire community together. If you haven’t been yet, tonight is going to be big one, so leave yourself plenty of time and wear shoes made for walking!
At the Soho Lofts building, Hoover Avenue will be buzzing with activity, including our signature B4 First Friday event, Bubbles, Braids, Buns & Blowouts (6:30-9pm), as well as the opening of an exhibit by the Vegas Vernacular Project at Amanda Harris Gallery, right next door to us. This cool project aims to photographically document all the old, (mostly) hand-painted signs around downtown before they are lost to progress. So, please, stop by Soho Lofts tonight, and join us for a street’s worth of activity!
The pumpkin decorating contest returns to First Friday this month, and take a look at whose 2011 pumpkin is front and center on the flyer …
Why, it’s Globe Salon’s 2011 entry, Bride of Frankenstein …
We’re honored … and we’re prepping our 2012 entry, Rapunzel …
See you Friday at Bubbles, Braids, Buns & Blowouts!
