Junior & Hatter salon open in Wynwood

The lowdown: Bonnie and Clyde, Laverne and Shirley, Tarzan and Jane — duos are the bee’s knees. So allow us to introduce you to Wynwood’s latest couple — Junior & Hatter salon.

As for the quirky name, “Junior & Hatter represents a duality in character — almost like a Jekyll and Hyde. ‘Junior’ being the grounded representative of who we are, and ‘Hatter’ being the mischievous and misunderstood artist,” co-founder Andrea Battista says. Partner Mario Silvestri adds, “We specialize in both men and women’s hair and offer the experience and services of an upscale, high- end salon in an artistically cultivated setting.”

The ‘hood: Inside the Wynwood Building, the twosome handpicked the Wynwood Arts District in Miami because their brand complements the neighborhood’s energy and like-minded artsy setting.

The ambience: You won’t spot at an-all white palette here. The 1,100-square-foot space is the result of Battista and Silvestri’s life-long veneration for hair, fashion and design. It’s replete with reclaimed wood installations, bronze, copper and cast iron finishes, and one-of-a-kind vintage pieces — many of which Battista found on his world travels and refurbished and reupholstered.

The highlights: Guests can expect men’s ($45) and women’s haircuts ($80), blowdries (starting at $45) and updos ($90 and up). Color offerings consist of single process (starting at $65), partial highlights ($80 and up), half-head highlights ($120 and up) and full-head highlights (starting at $160). Nail services include manicures ($18), pedicures ($32) and polish changes ($10 to $15). Junior & Hatter also offers the option to book a blow dry with a lesson on how to do it like a professional at home.

‘Downton Abbey’: A more stylish Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) is emerging in Season 4.


    ‘Downton’ costumers transform Lady Edith

    Poor, sad Lady Edith. Early on in Downton Abbey, the PBS Masterpiece Classic family saga, it seemed that the much-overlooked, undervalued middle sister of the Crawley clan had been dealt a bad hand. Her assertive nose, wan manner and decorously dowdy wardrobe had apparently rendered her marriage prospects slim to nil. Be kind to her; she has so few advantages, her mother urges Edith’s sister Mary. To which Mary peevishly replies that Edith has none at all.
