While indie retail therapy is aplenty in the Arts District, Downtown dwellers have few options for getting groomed — until now. West Hollywood's stylish salon Benjamin debuted its DTLA digs yesterday at One Santa Fe, that high-end lifestyle center that's been rolling out retailers since opening last year.
Covering 1,620 square feet, the fashion-faved chop shop will offer the same menu as Benjamin WeHo, including women's cuts starting at $110, men's cuts at $85 and up, blowouts for $55 ad up, and color service ($90 to $250 an up). Add-on treatments like deep conditioning, hair repair, and more will also be served up.
There'll also be a curated collection of beauty and haircare products from Selects, the stylish apothecary shop helmed by salon founder Benjamin Mohapi and Genavieve Lynch, plus a selection of Poster Child Prints art (which are also available for purchase, should you want to recreate Benjamin's cool walls at home).
Benjamin Arts District is open Sunday and Monday from 10am to 6pm, and Tuesday through Saturday from 8am to 8pm.
