The salon's new home is just around the corner and up Summit Avenue from it's previous location at 206 Sherman Ave. Inside it is sophisticated and comfortable, with a black and silver color scheme on the main floor with touches of red and, chandeliers that sparkle. Its clients, who include men, women and children, will walk into the salon's main floor where they will be able to take advantage of the full array of hair care, from coloring, cutting, hair styling and blow outs, as well as make-up services along with manicures and pedicures.

Sublime now offers spray tanning and eyelash extensions.
Spa packages and gift certificates are available and the spa is "kid friendly," said Cordillo.
