Chris Chase Salon

When owners Christopher Perkins and Mitchell Chase Slabach opened Chris Chase Salon in May 2007, they aimed to raise the bar of luxury in the burgeoning West Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The 2,000-square-foot salon features a clean yet welcoming design, mid-century-style furnishings and elegant touches that give the space the look and feel of a European atelier.
