The Style Lounge, the forthcoming blowout bar and then some, is looking good on its promise of a spring debut at The Linq. The plywood is down and the large windows look out onto the entrance to Brooklyn Bowl and the newly opened Sprinkles. Located just a few yards from the entrance to the High Roller observation wheel, the services here range from a "voluminous, Victoria's Secret-style blowout" to the High Roller and its big bun.
Look for 11 styling stations, six pedicure chairs, six manicure stations, four make-up stations and a wax and spray tanning room.
But perhaps most intriguing, the added attraction of a full-service bar, partially created to encourage men to sit a spell. The salon's Vanitini makes the menu.
Managing partner and stylist Andeen Rose — who has created looks for Eva Longoria, Courtney Mazza-Lopez, Jewel, Audrina Patridge, Nicole Scherzinger and more — is behind the 2,030-square-foot salon. She says services here include blowouts, up-dos, braids and clip-in extensions as well as manicures, pedicures, head-to-toe waxing, make up services and spray tans. The salon will also offer on-call, on-site and in-room services across Vegas.
The company's Facebook page reveals the new stations in place, with the mirrors featuring ornate purple trim matching the Style Lounge logo.
Vanity is also building a private lounge for groups of six or more. Bachelorette, bridal, "Girls Night Out" or birthday parties can make a reservation and tailor the services.[Photos: Inside/Facebook, Outside/Bradley Martin]
