We spend a good deal of time heralding the great bars, restaurants and entertainment options in the Downtown area – with good reason. However, there is much more to Downtown Phoenix than some of the best food in the Valley. Downtown is home to a number of businesses dedicated to keeping all of us looking and feeling good. From barber shops to full service beauty salons, the Downtown community is well-stocked with professionals who are ready to help our employees and residents look their best.
Like many other Downtown businesses, for our beloved barber shops the key is convenience at a reasonable price. Whether it’s Gentleman Joe’s near Central & Adams, the Downtown Barber Shop in the Hotel San Carlos or Tony’s Barber Shop in the Luhrs Complex, a great shave and a haircut are only a few blocks away. Longtime Downtowner Tony Verdugo, owner of his eponymous shop, has been cutting hair is his one chair spot for more than 40 years.
If you are looking for a full-service salon, you won’t find another business district in the Valley with more beauty options. Each patron has their favorite, and the possibilities are scattered throughout the area. Downtown Salon Phoenix in the Hyatt Regency and Youngblood Haircutters in the Renaissance Hotel have served travelers and Downtowners for years. You have to take an escalator to the second level retail of the Collier Center to find Perry Monge but word is it’s well worth the trip. Downtown’s newest beauty addition, Par Exsalonce at CityScape, is earning rave reviews and making a name for itself despite being open for less than two years.
If you haven’t taken the opportunity to visit one of our Downtown barbers or beauty salons, its time to make the jump. There is nothing better than taking a break from the grind with a little pampering or returning to admiring co-workers with a fresh haircut. As always, you can find a complete listing of all beauty services in our business directory.
