What makes you feel pampered? Is it a day at the beach with a good book or is it shopping with your girlfriends, or maybe a spa day and lunch? Whatever fits your definition of being pampered you can find it all within walking distance in Anna Maria City.
The Pine Avenue restoration project has another new and fabulous addition to its portfolio of shops and eateries. Salon Salon on Pine Beauty Boutique & Spa opened in December of last year, offering visitors and local residents a full service salon in the heart of Anna Maria.
Salon Salon on Pine is the second salon on Anna Maria Island owned and operated by Annie Petitt and her husband, Jeff, and their daughter, Nikita Fosmore. The first Salon Salon of AMI is located at 3612 E. Bay Drive in Holmes Beach and opened in November 2009. In Holmes Beach, the shop captures the look and feel of an upscale urban salon, but on Pine Avenue, in keeping with the casual Old Florida feel of the street, they have adopted a beachy chic décor.
The aqua blue walls designed by Fosmore simulate waves washing up on the sand as the color fades from dark to pale aqua, and the reception desk designed out of reclaimed wood appears to be a weathered piece of driftwood. The natural color of the concrete floors perfectly sets off the attractive display of products available to purchase.
Salon Salon exclusively sells Bumble & Bumble hair products, Murad skin care products and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. They also have their own private line of body care products as well as other hair and body care accessories. The staff at Salon Salon is all trained in the products offered for sale, and they are also used at the salon.
One of the more unique and exciting additions to Salon Salon’s product line are custom fragrances by Aromachology. Aromochology gives you the experience of creating your very own fragrance at their perfume bar. It’s a great idea for a special event like a wedding, where each member of the wedding can design her own special scent, and makes a thoughtful gift by giving an empty bottle for the recipient to later take to the perfume bar and mix a customized scent.
Salon Salon has a full menu of body treatments with oils, scrubs and mud wraps, several different massage treatments including deep tissue and aroma therapy as well as many facial options. It has three attractive treatment rooms, one with a shower, and an area to relax.
Manicures and pedicures are done in a lovely separate room away from the traffic of the reception area, and of course, hair styling, color, hair extensions, foils and conditioning are all available. Salon Salon offers Clarisonic skin cleansers and spray tanning and a full waxing menu.
Salon Salon loves to host parties and do many wedding parties, special birthdays and even baby showers. Gift certificates are available for all services and make wonderful gifts. Both Salon Salon locations are full service offering essentially the same beauty and spa services. Both locations work together in accommodating the needs of their clients, and if one of the locations is booked for a particular service, Annie will do her best to get you an appointment at the other.
Annie and her family are very excited to be part of the Pine Avenue experience and want to thank their very strong local following for helping to make their new shop a huge success already. She says she and her staff have a great passion for the spa business and love to make people feel good. Their mission is to take very good care of their clients with the hope that visitors and residents will keep returning.
Whatever your definition of pampered is, you can bet you’ll find it at both Salon Salon locations – the one that could be on Fifth Avenue and the one where you can dig your toes in the sand, relax and enjoy.
