Gia Clarke and Nicole Vaiani have been working in salons in Newton for several years, and now they have branched out on their own to start Vaiani & Clarke Salon.
The new salon at 15 Cypress St. in Newton Centre, and the pair hopes to bring a youthful vibe to the area.
Vaiani & Clarke takes over from a former salon, and the space used to be a bank, which is evident with the large safe in the back of the salon.
The salon specializes in Keratin, Brazilian Blowout, Deva Curl and all the colorists are Goldwell Certified.
"All colors we custom make so they match your skin tone and eye color," Vaiani said.
Coloring products are also available for those who are pregnant or those looking for natural options.
The salon also is the exclusive provider in Newton of a number of products, including Orbie, Balayage, Lift Lab and NuFace.
The salon will host a grand opening celebration on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Food and drinks will be served, vendors will have free samples and there will be a raffle. (See the invitation above).
New customers can come to Vaiani & Clarke for a complimentary conditioning treatment.
