6 Salon is opening its first location downtown in a Bedrock-owned Lofts at Merchants Row building at 1441 Woodward Avenue. It will be the boutique salon’s third locations, with others in Royal Oak and Birmingham.
The new 3,900-square-foot space was designed by M1/DTW. Build-out recently began and the salon is expected to open in the fall.
When finished, the salon will have 18 cutting chairs, two manicuring stations, two pedicure stations, two makeup stations, and also offer barbering with hot shaves. 6 Salon says it will employ between 35-40 people.
“When I’m out of town and talk about our business, I usually say our salons are in Detroit, understanding that people may not be familiar with Royal Oak or Birmingham,” co-owner George Nikollaj says. “I’m excited to be able to say that we’re in Detroit proper now.”
Owners Nikollaj, Johnny Nikollaj, and Tomy Lulgjuraj started 6 Salon in 2003. In that time, it’s won Hour Detroit’s “Best Salon” award on six occasions, most recently this year. It also won Salon Today’s “Salon of the Year” award in 2014.
Prices for cuts start at $30, hair coloring at $40, and makeup at $75.
