I’m a Carnegie Hill resident and some days I really need a blow out, but I don’t have the ambition to walk or take a cab for the journey to my regular spot. Instead, I opt to blow out my, hair believing I can create that “just walked out of a salon look.” Alas, I never quite achieve it, and after an hour of wrestling with the blow dryer and tugging at my hair I invariably end up with a healthy measure of self-inflicted stress and my hair pitifully tied up. This is not what I would call “self care!”
Well now it’s time to relax.
Much to my joy (and my locks relief), Val More Salon is part of the new wave of businesses bringing convenience and high-quality services to Carnegie Hill.
With 20 plus years in the industry, Val’s passion for his work stems from many years spent along-side one of the elite stylists in the salon world. His expertise and approach have earned Val the well-deserved nickname “The Hair Whisperer” by the many loyal clients that travel from far and wide to sit in his chair. And after my first visit to his gorgeous new salon, I can understand why.
From the moment I opened the door my experience at Val More’s was luxurious and relaxing. I was graciously welcomed with warm smiles from the staff that offered sweets, coffee and tea. I immediately took in the elegant interior, with exposed brick walls, and sleek glass cases displaying a thoughtful selection of hair products. I loved seeing Living Proof and Alterna Caviar — both sustainable and non-toxic products — as some of the items sold. Contemporary photography hung on the walls, lush orchids adorned the counters, and the space’s soothing palate of sleek black, white and grey was illuminated by well-designed lighting. All this prepared me for a feeling of being pampered and spoiled.
I was not disappointed. I nabbed a seat in Val’s chair where he seamlessly transformed my ratty locks into a flowing, smooth hairstyle that kept up with me the next two days. (I’ve already been back a few times for blowouts and can’t wait to try out the many other services too!)
