Maybe you just moved to Downtown Las Vegas, or maybe you were an early adopter. Perhaps you arrived from another city, eager to be part of the urban revitalization and resurgence that Globe Salon’s founders envisioned years ago. Or maybe you are longtime Las Vegas resident who recogizes the potential of urban living and decided to give it a try.
For whatever reason, you now find yourself living in Downtown Las Vegas at The Ogden. Living among all those hotels on the edge of the East Fremont Entertainment District action can be a little odd. But soon you find your bearings and start to discover Downtown Las Vegas outside the party zone. You begin to wonder where the locals hang out. Where they shop. Do their laundry. Get their hair cut. That’s when you might discover Downtown’s decades-old Arts District. Here, an authentic local scene is growing, driven by passionate entrepreneurs who put everything on the line to open their doors and serve you.
Here, just nine blocks south of Fremont Street and your home at The Ogden, is where Globe Salon stands. Opened in 2000, Globe Salon is a service-focused, luxury boutique hair salon. We’re one of just a handful of Nevada salons honored by Elle magazine on its list of the Top 100 Salons in America. Twice. Style bible Black Book selected us for inclusion in their Las Vegas Guide, and W Magazine spotlighted our efforts with a write-up during the annual MAGIC fashion convention.
Opened way back in 2000, Globe Salon has been in the Soho Lofts tower since 2008, so we understand Downtown living. We’re staffed with many native Las Vegans and proponents of Downtown, so we understand Las Vegas. Many people say their hairdresser is like a therapist; our staff is also your Las Vegas concierge, pointing you to all the newest and hottest spots our city has to offer. And if you don’t want to stray too far, our neighbors at Soho Lofts include the Contemporary Arts Center Gallery, The Goodwich, and The Millenium Fandom Bar.
There are hundreds of salons in Las Vegas, and thousands of hairstylists. That can be intimidating. What makes Globe Salon stand apart is both simple and significant: Our hairstylists are professional experts accountable to Globe Salon’s respected guest-centered standards. No excuses. We take care of everyone from some of the city’s top attorneys and executives to some of its flashiest bartenders and entertainers. We serve as many men as women, and everyone gets a relaxing shampoo in our exclusive massaging shampoo chairs. The majority of our guests drive to us from Summerlin and Green Valley for a reason, and you are so close you can walk.
But if all that that isn’t enough to give us a try, how about this: Enjoy 30% off your first visit with Globe Salon. Just show proof of your Ogden residency and we’ll take care of the rest. One visit is all we ask. One visit is all you need to see the difference.
We understand that Downtown Las Vegas can be a unknown quantity for some of you, especially since most of our guests drive to us from the surrounding suburbs of Summerlin, Green Valley, Seven Hills, and the like. Fear not! Getting to Globe Salon is a quick 15-minute jaunt for most, and parking is about as easy as a downtown can get. Keep in mind that, despite our Las Vegas Boulevard address, Soho Lofts, the luxury residential tower that is our home, faces north on Hoover Avenue.
So, parking at Globe Salon? Here you go:
• All of Globe Salon’s free parking is on city streets. That means you’ll need to make sure your car is displaying valid license plates and a current registration sticker.
• Hoover Avenue between Las Vegas Blvd and 4th Street (directly in front of Soho Lofts) is free 3-hour parking. Hooray!
• Hoover Avenue west of 4th Street is free parking without a time limit. Huzzah!
• All along 4th Street is free 2-hour parking, and is usually under-utilized. It’s great for shorter appointments like Fabulous Blowouts, event styles and haircuts.
• Prefer parking in a lot? The lot directly across from us (the Hoover Lot) is a metered city parking lot, generally $1 per hour.
See how simple that is? See you at Globe Salon soon!
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!

This week, Globe Salon’s licensed aesthetician and self-proclaimed skin care fanatic Eva writes her first blog, featuring tips about how to care for your skin as the seasons change:
At last! The Las Vegas valley has cooled down from the squelching summer heat. The long summer days have gone, leaving behind layers of dull, dead skin cells that diminish your skin’s appearance. And just as cooler weather prompts us to change our wardrobe, our skin care routine must add some layers as well. You may be noticing symptoms like flakiness, chapped skin, and an overall tightness. All are caused by the change in weather, and it happens especially from summer to fall when the air really dries up here in the desert.
To ensure your skin stays vibrant, hydrated and supple in the cooler months, adding exfoliation to your regimen is key. Exfoliation removes the dead layer of skin cells from the skin’s surface, making the skin appear brighter and more youthful. It also allows the skin to absorb serums and moisturizers more efficiently, helping them penetrate healthy layers of skin and making them more effective. I like to do my exfoliation twice a week, at night, to keep my skin glowing. It also reminds me to carve out a little extra “me” time to take care of myself.
There are two different categories of exfoliation: manual and chemical. This gives you a plethora of options from which to choose for your personal skin care ritual. Manual exfoliation is exactly what it sounds like: Physically removing dead skin cells using a scrub, brush or washcloth. Microdermabrasion is a popular example of a professional-level manual exfoliation. At Globe Salon, we offer a baking-soda based microdermabrasion treatment that is very gentle in comparison to the traditional service (which uses harsh metallic crystals) while achieving stunning results.
Alternatively, a chemical exfoliator uses chemicals, acids, or enzymes to literally nibble away and digest dead skin. Think of it like little Pac-Mans on the surface of your skin! Look for ingredients like glycolic acid or fruit enzymes when investing in a chemical exfoliant. At Globe Salon, we use a BioElements enzyme-based exfoliation in all of our facial treatments. For example, our essential facial — the 60-minute Corrective — uses a mixture of papaya and pineapple enzymes. We also offer at-home exfoliation treatments that we will customize for your skin after any in-salon facial treatment.
Manual exfoliation is best at improving the texture and tone of skin showing conditions like flakiness or scarring; chemical exfoliation is effective at refining large pores and diminishing hyper-pigmentation from the sun. Both methods are wonderful at reducing fine lines and wrinkles and removing yucky dull skin, and both are most effective when administered together by a professional. When it comes to finding the best approach, it’s best to allow a licensed aesthetician to examine your skin and help design a regimen tailored for you. So, come in and experience a results-oriented facial at Globe Salon and help defend your skin against seasonal changes. You will feel refreshed and rejuvenated — and look it, too! We look forward to seeing you soon. ~Eva
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!

If you are someone interested in joining a successful, professional team in an award-winning, stable salon environment; a salon where an active management ensures that your day goes as smoothly as possible; a salon where working as a valuable member of a professional team will not only vault your career to new heights, it will also help you realize personal goals as well; a salon where creative passion is paired with an advanced eductional foundation and exceptional service; a salon that attracts a healthy mix of locals from across the valley, as well as visitors to Las Vegas, drawing them to our city’s burgeoning Downtown revitalization… If this sounds interesting, then perhaps Globe Salon and you should meet.
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).
