I moved to Idaho a year ago and was very sad to leave my great stylist in Washington. I wanted an updated, hip look so went searching for a salon that fit that mold.
I finally ended up at Graeber & Company, which is an Aveda salon in Downtown Boise. It is a very large salon with many services available. They have traditional hair and nails service, but also have a day spa that provides skin care, makeup, and massage treatments.
The salon is very clean and trendy looking. A style you'd probably see in the trendy New York, big city salons. The mirrors are mounted on large free-standing doors, complete with knobs. All the stylists are dressed professionally and look the part.
My stylist did a great job of determining what I wanted and then executing it. She gave me suggestions on what may or may not look good too.
Price is decent. It is actually about the same as you would pay going to JCPenney's, but you get the trendy-styles rather than the styles you see from Penney's.
I'd definitely recommend this salon to anyone who wants a trendy, modern experience. It really isn't much for people who want a down-home, country style salon where everyone congregates to gossip though.
