The corner of Melrose and Kings Road is about to get even hotter. In addition to scoring a Rebecca Minkoff boutique (stay tuned for opening date), the hub will soon be home to Society—our city's first membership salon. Founded by former Sally Hershberger stylist Sam DiVine and industry guru Ashley Kight, the premiere beauty studio will be unveiled at 8327 Melrose Avenue this Wednesday, September 10.
In addition to offering a la carte services and treatments, Society hosts three membership tiers that are billed on a monthly basis: The Social (unlimited blowouts at $80/month), The Standard (unlimited blowouts, haircuts and single process color at $120/month) and The Signature (unlimited blowouts, haircuts, single process color, highlights and low lights at $180/month). There's also a men's package called The Sophisticate that hooks up unlimited haircuts for an affordable $60/month.
Society will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 5pm. To attend Wednesday's grand opening, email RSVP@societysalons.com. (Bonus: partygoers will all receive a complimentary blowout certificate that's valid within 14 days.)
