Globe Salon celebrates 8 years by moving to Downtown Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV (Jul 18, 2008) – Globe Salon, an award-winning, locally-owned hair and skin care salon, will celebrate its eighth anniversary in October in a beautiful new location in the downtown Las Vegas Arts District. The salon is at Soho Lofts, 900 Las Vegas Blvd South, Suite 130, Las Vegas, NV 89101; the phone number is 702-938-4247.

Originally opened October 31, 2000 at Charleston and Decatur Boulevards, Globe Salon’s July 2008 relocation to the Downtown Arts District fulfills the salon’s longtime “uptown sophistication meets downtown style” approach.

“We are thrilled to finally be a physical part of downtown,” says Staci Linklater, salon director and president of the salon’s parent company, “because mentally, we have been here all along. We have always wanted Globe Salon to be a part of downtown. We feel very much at home at Soho Lofts.” Linklater is a Las Vegas native and the subject of New York Times journalist Linda Lee’s book, Success Without College. She operates Globe Salon with General Manager James P. Reza, also a Las Vegas native and a founder of what is now the Las Vegas Weekly.

In dramatic contrast to salons typical of Las Vegas, the new location of Globe Salon exemplifies upscale urban design, and ultra-efficient use of its 1050 square feet. The luxurious space takes design inspiration from the hospitality industry, showcasing black hardwood floors, glass mosaic tile, dark stained maple panels and bronze glass contrasting with blue walls and luxurious styling chairs. English black paisley wallpaper accents a centerpiece soffit from which hang hundreds of strands of faceted gloss-black beads, imparting the feel of a giant black chandelier. A wall of glass looks onto downtown Las Vegas.

“The salon shape is almost a cube; it feels like a luxurious jewel box,” says salon director Linklater. “The bright white, mid-century modern style of our original boutique was well ahead of its time when it opened, and so is this new space.”

Above the guest reception area, a 46″ LCD panel shows loops of hair shows, fashion shows, and salon information, while state-of-the-art Italian shampoo stations provide guests a relaxing Shiatsu back massage during their shampoo. In a private room behind a hidden door, Globe Salon also provides licensed skin care, including facials, baking-soda microdermabrasion, and body and bikini waxing.

“Designing a new space allowed us to apply what we’ve learned over eight years,” says Linklater. “We added touches of luxury, like our shampoo stations, that give our guests a little something beyond the personal service on which we’ve built Globe Salon’s reputation.”

The architect of record is the Las Vegas firm Parker Scaggiari. Kevin Brailsford (Dallas, Texas) is the design consultant for the owners. The general contractor was Keroles Construction.
