For many, going to a salon is more than about just getting a haircut.
It's an experience. A transformation. A new expression.
For Tacoma's longtime and iconic Embellish Multispace Salon, those statements could not be truer, especially now.
The salon is moving from its location at Court D in downtown Tacoma to its new digs in downtown's Theater District, at 727 Commerce, Suite 200. The grand opening is slated for April 25, and it promises to be one big party. The general public is invited to a special open house that evening from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. to celebrate. Patrons can expect to enjoy food, beverages, prizes and some great promotions throughout the evening. Pacific Northwest fan favorite musical performing artist Kim Archer will make a special appearance.
The move and the celebration mark some exciting new territory for owners Athena Renee, Trish Lecy and Eleanor Carpenter and their team. The management team, who affectionately call themselves the "Trifecta," for the personalities and skills they bring to the salon, are eager to honor each other, their beloved team, clients and many supporters in their craft. The new space just furthers that mission and vision, and it opens up new possibilities and excitement; however, it's not without fond memories of what was before.
"The new space is a bittersweet departure from the iconic ‘purple building,'" said co-owner Renee. "Everything evolves. The new iteration of Embellish. To honor a new partnership and direction, we came together with a shared vision that communicates our personalities and sets us up for future growth.
"The new space provides state-of-the-art LED lighting, which will give us the best possible results," she continues. "Our shopping space is expanding into indie, small batch, cult favorite, organic and more healthful approaches to beauty. Our rich hardwood floors will give a warm glow, making the space welcoming with a cozy waiting area to enjoy tasty local beverages. The new environment sits in a pocket of creative enterprise. Being a destination location on Court D, we have never known the luxury of foot traffic. Having two entrances, on both Pacific Avenue and Commerce Street, will increase the accessibility for clients. We are so excited to have pedestrian traffic."
So after the big celebration, what's next for the business? While there are some great plans in the works, like expanding staff and services (including offering Sunday hours beginning in the summertime, which is unique in the industry), the team will continue its synergy, support of one another and pride in serving the local community.
Renee sums it up best.
"We are the go-to salon for boutique hair and the latest and greatest in beauty gems. When Trish partnered with Eleanor and me, the greatest commodity ended up being our camaraderie. It's the reason we turn the key every day. We love being together and making beautiful hair. We dual consult as a part of our culture, which is not something that happens much in the hair community. We bounce ideas off each other with the client during their consultation. Our clients have the whole team invested in their style results."
