The words stylish, smart and elegant don’t always come to mind when you think about businesses on the beach. On an island framed by beaches, we’ve become accustomed to a casual beachy style, but there’s a new business in town that thinks beachy can be more, in fact they think it can be beachy chic.
Salon Salon of AMI is a new salon and spa on Anna Maria Island which opened in November of last year in Holmes Beach. Annie Petitt and her daughter Nikita Fosmore have designed a spa and salon which is so posh Fryou’ll think you’re on Fifth Avenue rather than East Bay Drive. The cool elegant motif has just a hint of the beach with its sandy color floor, pale tinted walls and wicker furniture all reflected in the mirrors and understated lighting.
Nikita Fosmore is the third generation in her family working as a salon professional. Her grandfather was a North American Platform hair cutting champ and her father Jeff Petitt, who also works at Salon Salon, is a hair and color specialist who has owned and operated two other salons. Annie Petitt, who coordinates the business end of the salon, has been visiting Anna Maria from Michigan since the 1960s. Her grandparents owned a home on the island and she and her husband currently live in Holmes Beach.
In addition to the Petitt family, there are five vibrant women rounding out the staff; they’re hip, young and experienced and provide a variety of salon and spa services.
Haircuts and styling for both men and women by Aveda trained master stylists, color and color retouch, foils, glossing treatment and permanent waves are some of the hair services available. Classic manicures and pedicures as well as French manicures and pedicures to pamper your fingers and toes. A variety of massage services are available in Salon Salon’s two serene massage rooms including couples massage. Brow waxing, tinting, lash tinting and makeup applications are offered, as well as a full menu of wedding services for the entire bridal party.
Salon Salon carries exclusively a full line of Bumble & Bumble hair products as well as Youngblood mineral based makeup. Their prices are competitive and walk-ins are always welcome.
Nikita Fosmore likes to call Salon Salon beachy chic, and when you see the silver sea turtle and egret sculptures on the walls, you’ll probably agree. Visit Salon Salon for a smart and stylish spa experience, where elegance is always chic even if it’s on the beach.
