Stay in the Loop

New Salon Offers Several Beauty Services In One Spot

Thursday, June 1st, is the grand opening of Arch Salon & Suites, a new North Loop venture from industry veterans Ali Nanne and Alexis Becker in which independent stylists and other beauty professionals create their own businesses by renting space inside this new facility.

“We have a wide variety of everything, whether it’s hair extensions, cuts, color,” said Alexis (at left in the photo above). “We have nurse injectors for botox filler, facials, spray tans, lashes, brows.”

The new business, opening in the historic International Design Center (built in 1890), features a large, open ground floor with chairs and sinks for stylists plus suites on the mezzanine level for a variety of other services.

“It’s just so grand and it’s almost jaw-dropping when you walk in,” said Ali. “And we just wanted this to feel so luxury and high end. We wanted everyone to just feel like it was an upscale environment compared to all the other rental opportunities out there.”

The two women targeted the North Loop for their new facility because of the demographics of the neighborhood and all the new developments happening on 1st Street North.

“With all the cool things going in around here, the West Hotel and then the new restaurants going in, it was kind of a no-brainer for us.,” Ali said.

They still have two suites and a few chairs available for beauty professionals interested in renting space there.
