Since I just moved to Missouri, I have heard many things about the Skyline Hair Salon, located downtown in Kansas City, Missouri. After checking it out and reading some great reviews, I found it to be quite interesting and very affordable, even though the salon itself has an expensive feel to it, a wash, haircut and style is only about $45, which is quite reasonable; as I have spent a lot more than that in just a chop shop.

The Skyline Salon is on the fourth floor at 2001 Grand Blvd. They do haircutting, nails, waxing, and hair color. They also have a chic boutique that you can browse in while you are waiting for your appointment, and they sell Bumble & Bumble hair products that smell good enough to eat.

The hair salon itself is a very trendy, open and airy salon with a fantastic view of downtown Kansas City. When you walk into the salon there is someone to greet you, and they offer you something to drink, such as bottled water, tea, coffee or wine. The waiting area is very comfortable and roomy and you get the sense that your visit is going to be quite satisfying.

When you get your hair shampooed, you get the best message and there is a screen right in front of you that plays movies, that was quite interesting to me, as I had never seen that in a salon before other than in the waiting area.

When you first make your appointment, they match you with the best stylist that is going to meet your needs. They have stylists that specialize in color and even a stylist that specializes only in blondes, go figure.

I was really impressed with the amount of time that the stylist asked about my hair, and seemed really interested in giving me a good haircut. I have been a stylist for many years and have worked in places where they get you in and out of the chair so fast without even a thank you maam, and not because they are rude but because of the limited time that we have to do a haircut in a really fast paced salon. But The Skyline Salon was not like that, they really took their time in making you feel comfortable and rest easy that you are in their hands, or your hair is in their hands rather.

Everyone looks really chic and stylishly dressed, and at first I thought that I would be intimidated by this, but the friendliness of everyone put me right at ease, and I was very satisfied with my haircut, which was surprisingly less than $50.

Bumble and bumble products.

For 30 years Bumble and bumble hair products have really been popular in the hair industry because of their fantastic products, from their shampoos, to their therapy treatments. Bumble and bumble are sold in salons with the same name and are also carried in various salons throughout the U.S and abroad. Many celebrities rave about Bumble and bumble and I have even seen these products featured on Oprah. They smell great and make your hair look fabulous.

Cabel Nathaniel's designs

Nathaniel Renewal

Right next to the Salon is a cute little boutique that was quite interesting called Nathaniel Renewal. He is a local designer that has very contemporary styles that are referred to as“basement-fashion”,  it wouldn’t be anything that I would wear, but I found it interesting nonetheless. The designer is named Caleb Nathaniel, and he likes to refer to his designs as simple but has a progressive edge to them. Most of the designs are done in his basement, using paint and bleach. All of his designs are done by hand, so when you buy something in his boutique, you are getting a Nathaniel Renewal original. He even recycles clothes and adds his exclusive designs to them, and gives them a more modern look. I gotta give him kudos for his creativity, for turning his ideas into a great business for him, and becoming a popular entrepreneur.

(basement·fashion (béismənt-fǽƒən) 1. n. a genre of fashion that breaks from the traditional mold of screen-printing. Designs are created by hand using normal household items (such as bleach and paint.) Each piece of clothing is typically an exclusive, one of a kind.

I noticed that the prices of his clothes were pretty affordable also, the t-shirts were about $20, the jackets were about $40, and women's skirts were in the area of about $25-$30. All in all I thought it was interesting to learn about his designs.
