2014 Capitol Hill Block Party

See the picture above? If you look in the upper left corner- you will see Emerson Salon!

Our salon is situated right in the thick of the Capitol Hill Block Party that closes down E. Pike St. between Broadway Ave. and 12th. Ave in the Capitol Hill neighborhood July 25, 26 and 27th. There will be lots of food, 5 performance stages of music and the weather should be absolutely gorgeous!

If you intend to have an appointment that weekend for a hair service, we have a couple key points to share with you:

  • The only accessible entrance to Emerson Salon during festival days is at Broadway and E. Pike St. The entrance is only for patrons of Frame Central, Retail Therapy and Emerson Salon and you can let security know you are headed to Emerson Salon.
  • Parking in the salon’s neighborhood will be limited so plan to leave a little earlier if you are driving.
  • If you have a hair service booked during Block Party, YOU CAN GET A DAY PASS to the FESTIVAL! It is good for one admittance to the day of your choice- just make sure to tell your stylist which day you prefer.

Who are we excited to see at Block Party??
Matt & Kim, local phenom Katie Kate (who releases her new album “Nation,” digitally next week!), Dum Dum Girls, Pillar Point, and A$SAP Rocky!

The Brazilian Blowout treatment is back, and I like it! Doing smoothing treatments has been one of my specialties for a while. I’ve had mixed results with a few of the different brands, but, this one seems to be the best one. Come in and see me for a treatment! The price is dependent on length and thickness, starting at $90.

“Through the use of a Brazilian Super Nutrient Complex and a proprietary polymer system, the Brazilian Blowout actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.”

Join the Road Trip

Did you know that Emerson Salon has a theatre artist in its midst? Indeed we do! On top of her daily duties as hair extraordinaire- D’Arcy Harrison has reignited her craft in the Seattle fringe theatre scene by auditioning for Theatre Puget Sound while working with a reputable Stella Adler Acting Coach, Charles Waxberg ( D’Arcy has an extensive background in theatrical production, performance, in addition to set and lighting design after receiving her BFA in Acting at Emerson College in Boston, MA.

The most recent show D’Arcy will be performing in is called, “Cedar and the Redwoods,” and it is an original ensemble driven tragicomedy put on by Copious Love Productions. The play follows 20 something Cedar as she receives news of a family death and drives from San Francisco to Portland, OR for the funeral. Cedar is not alone on her drive though; the stress has exacerbated her schizophrenic condition and her other personalities are distracting her. She must battle her personal demons as well as ghosts from her past as she struggles to survive her journey through the Redwood forest.

Come see the show and be part of this poetic piece’s Seattle debut!!

March 14, 15, 16, 22, 23, 28, 30 and April 5, 6. Pay What You Can: Thursdays (14+ 28). Doors at 7pm, all performances start at 7:30pm at Washington Hall on 14th Ave and Fir (Central District).
