The legendary Oscar Blandi Salon has a new home. It still has all the bells and whistles that one would expect from a salon of this caliber (gorgeous workstations, private pedicure lounge, well-stocked product wall) plus a few new ones (Inoa ammoniafree permanent hair color by L'Oreal, a Nespresso coffee bar, access to World Class Concierge).
But the big news is that Blandi's gone green. The building, located at 55th and Madison is LEED certified, and the 9,000-square-foot salon features a whole host of eco-friendly touches: sustainably harvested bamboo floors, energy-saving LED and compact fluorescent lighting, an energy-efficient heating and cooling system and much more.
"When I was lookin for a new salon space, the 'eco' aspect of the building really made an impact on me," says Blandi. "I love that my salon is part of something really important in the world and hope our small contribution has a positive effect on the environment."
