Witchell Salon Luxury

Friday, 24 February 2012 11:06

The David Witchell Salon and Spa welcomes guests into a three floors of Old World turn-of-the-century charm brought up to date with the very latest in hairstyling techniques and coloring. Architect John Haydn’s drawings of each decorative detail stand as proof that nothing here was left to chance, from the geometric design of the inlaid wood paneling to the wooden railing of the mezzanine and the wrought iron display case and lighting fixtures.

One might speculate that the bow windows of the upstairs storefront became the leit motif for the softer lines that subtly define the distinctive style of this business: the graceful lines of the mezzanine overlooking the lower floor, the semicircle counters, and even the oval looking-glasses throughout. This is a one-stop retreat where guests can concentrate on both outward and inner beauty for a truly total look from top to bottom. Earthy elements of stone and wood essences instantly instill a sense of well-being while the intricate decorative detail evokes a sensation of continental Art Nouveau, offering a welcome reprieve from the straight lines and cool neutral colors of more "modern” design, with calla lily white globes on floor lamps, velvet scrolls of overstuffed chaises longues, self-standing work stations that recall the phone booths of yesteryear and the arabesque lines of the wrought iron furnishings and accessories. Witchell, twice nominated for best hair stylist in North America, set out to create his own flagship store, and succeeded with this combination of small-town USA charm and classic continental luxury.
