You’ve aced updos, run circles around side braids, and blown away blowout tutorials. So it’s no wonder that this summer you’ve graduated to a ponytail.
Grab a refresher at new salon Clove.
The two-level salon features indie art, vintage styling stations, and cult lines like Mixed Chicks and Rene Furterer. The shampoo room (they call it the tree house) is surrounded on three sides by limbs and leaves. And its midtown side-street locale feels more hip beauty loft than slick styling factory.
Sip fresh tea and shop adjustable cup caddies by Becky Striepe. Get your under-the-dryer jam on courtesy of local band The Constellations. (Yup, the CD’s for sale next to the pretty glass bottles of Moroccan beauty oil.)
It’s a perfect spot to get your head on straight.
And sure beats wearing a dunce cap.
Clove, 165 6th Street, Midtown (404-249-7855). Grand opening party, Saturday, June 27, 7-9 p.m.
