THIS EDITION OF #wantlocal shines the spotlight on a business that is artistic, refreshing and keen on detail. It’s a business that elevates expectations and standards. Locally-owned and independently-operated, the Jekyll and Hyde Salon started in 2012 on a small artist’s budget. Over the past few years it has outgrown its original space and set up shop at the intersection of High Street and Pacemont Road in Clintonville.
Jekyll and Hyde prides itself on being an urban, trend-setting salon that offers products and services at competitive prices. They strive to bring world-class hair designs to the Clintonville community. As part of that mission, the salon has recently become the first Columbus salon to offer full product lines and color lines exclusive to the Davines brand, which is a family-owned Italian company renowned for it’s all natural, eco-friendly products.
An unsuspecting visitor to Jekyll and Hyde would be surprised to discover that the salon is more than what you see at street level. The basement houses massage tables that even hold the promise of a couple’s massage. Overall the interior design and attention to detail sealed the deal for me. The space still retains much of the historic charm with ornate materials dating back decades. The salon features modern design additions and various examples of repurposed furniture to pay tribute to the history of the space. You really must pay a visit to appreciate it.
Appointments can be made by phone or on their website. Jekyll and Hyde is an appointment-based salon, however walk-ins are welcome at anytime.
