The owner of a local hair salon believes he has the answer to bringing the latest hairstyles and fashion trends to both adults and kids in Long Island City.
Alex Elwart, owner of Phoenix Hair Studio at 10-87 Jackson Ave., said he has expanded the salon into an adjacent space, in order to provide a wide variety of service to local families.
“We’ve expanded the studio to better serve our clients, offering waxing, mani / pedis, hair and lash extensions. We also want the space to serve as a kids’ spa to provide many of these services for children,” Elwart said.
“We will offer hair styling, makeup and nail services specifically for our younger clients, and offer temporary coloring free of charge,” he added.
However, it’s not all about the kids. The salon also offers private, full body waxing for adult clients, and serves groups of bridal parties, reunion goers and emergency “morning-of” appointments as well.
Elwart said he feels that Phoenix Hair Studio stands out among kids’ salons for one important reason: “We are fully licensed by the State Board of Cosmetology.”
The salon will celebrate the two-year anniversary of their Jackson Avenue opening next month, which comes on the heels of the closing of David’s Barbershop on Vernon Boulevard.
“Anyone who’s a fan of Rita can continue seeing her here at Phoenix Hair Studio.”
All appointments can be made by calling 917-373-8973.
