Wondering what this exclusive and pricey salon is all about? MODERN’S Beauty and Fashion Director Maggie Mulhern checked out the scene and learned all about what makes Lisa Chiccine’s Salon a luxurious destination for her high-profile clients. Upon entering the salon, you are greeted by Lisa herself in the reception area. According to Lisa, appointments are all made a year ahead of time. All credit card information is kept on file so that at the end of the appointment the guest can be on their way without worrying about money transactions.

While being pampered the guest is treated to gourmet coffee, exotic tea, champagne, and chocolates. Pretty much when booking an appointment here the client can request any kind of refreshment/pastry they would like in order to make their experience more comfortable.

Lisa shows in the episode her cutting and shampooing areas, with glimpses of her products. Clients to her salon not only get beauty advice tailored to their hair and individual style, they also receive complimentary concierge services, including Internet access and dining reservations. Lisa says on her website, “It’s your very own VIP lounge.” Lisa also guarantees that if you book at her salon, it will be the best haircut and color treatment you have ever had…(see on her website).

So for the prices, here’s a taste of what she charges:

Hair cut: $450
Highlights: $550
Blow Dry: $200
Outside Booking: $200

For a complete list of the prices, you are just going to have to watch the episode! So tune in now!
