We’re thrilled to announce that our salon has expanded! We now have two Durham locations. In addition to our Ninth Street spot, we are also now offering full salon and blow dry bar services at Pavilion East (on Erwin Road, right across from the Duke Medical Center).
Formerly The Garden Salon, 140 Salon & Blow Dry Bar’s new location has a hip, energetic vibe and is surrounded by great restaurants (Smash Burger, Chipotle, and Hungry Leaf, to name just a few!). This locale also provides plenty of hassle-free parking and is convenient to Duke’s campus and hospitals and the Washington-Duke Hotel. The interior of the salon is stylish yet intimate, with tons of gorgeous natural light. We think this is the perfect location for bridal groups to reserve for private wedding day preparations.
Like our Ninth Street salon, our new location also carries L’ANZA Healing Haircare and is staffed by experienced stylists who are passionate about what they do. 140 at Pavilion East is anchored by two such highly experienced stylists, Tova Arnold and Kristin Bridge.
Tova has twenty-five years of experience as a stylist and is a graduate of the Vici Capelli Beauty School in Wisconsin. Tova loves Durham because it is vibrant and energetic (two words that could also describe Tova herself!). Colleagues also describe Tova as a true professional – she’s confident in her expertise and will help you to sift through the current trends to find a look that really works for your hair and your lifestyle. A master of precision cutting, Tova also enjoys detail-oriented finishing work – her blowouts are true works of art!
Kristin is a beach-loving girl from Georgia who attended Mitchell’s Hair Styling Academy. Even before attending beauty school, though, Kristin loved doing hair for her friends and family members. Kristin is particularly fond of doing blonde hair – highlights and balayage are her specialty. She also loves a haircut that features long layers. Described by her colleagues as fun, sweet, and hardworking, Kristin helps to keep the vibe positive at the new 140.
And here’s some more good news: hours at our new location will be extended to seven days a week as the staff grows, and evening hours will be extended to 9:00 p.m. Come check us out in our new digs at 2608 Erwin Road (Pavilion East) or give us a call at 919-748-3175.
