One of the trickiest parts of going to Midtown is finding parking (especially for free), but luckily Studio 31 has a large lot during business hours. Don’t let the valet signs fool you, the lot is shared with other businesses with different operational hours, so they’re up for grabs for salon patrons. Studio 31 has a unique setup that allows stylists to lease their booths for independent practice, while also providing a network of support for their roster. Reception has an intimate knowledge of services offered and can expertly place newcomers with the proper choice of stylist, all of whom are educated via the Toni & Guy (TIGI) training system. Their entire crew is dedicated to continuing education and cutting-edge trends in hair and styling, held to the highest standard by salon owner Kimberly Michelle, even offering in-house education on a monthly basis. Stylists specialize in everything from advanced color services like balayage to Brazilian blowouts and keratin treatments to men’s grooming and barber services.
This is a luxury studio offering luxury services, so sit back and enjoy the complimentary water, coffee, wine, and light snacks. Their Midtown location has an industrial yet feminine aesthetic, exposed brick and rafters juxtaposed against chunky-framed floor length mirrors, high-glam chandeliers and pops of aqua accents.
