  It was only three years ago that Nader Lotfi
  and business partner Lina Rodrigues took
  over a small salon. “Now there are 28 of us
  working together,” says Nader. “It’s an area
  favorite and a grand success.” Their guest-
  book contains international names as well as
  names of important area figures. To stay on
  the cutting edge of fashion, the staff travels
  to New York, Los Angeles and Europe. And
  they meticulously train within the salon. Their
  loyal clients know that at Salon Nader they
  will get a cut and color that is modern and
  low maintenance. In addition, the style will go
  from day to night and will move freely, yet re-
  tains its shape. “We believe that a client’s
  hair should reflect the individual and reveal
  the client’s features,” says Nader. Their
  knowledgeable stylist, color specialists and
  esthetician combine their innate creativity
  with an understanding of the craft to bring
  clients the best styles for every season. The
  philosophy of the salon is to treat the hair as
  an organic material. Customer service is the
  number one priority and the staff gives one
  hundred percent of themselves, making
  clients always feel welcome. The warmth
  and energy are felt the moment a client
  walks in the salon and they always leave with
  a smile.
