A Little Bit of Brooklyn in Vegas

by Marc Jay
02.05.2010

After a stressful week, I needed something to help me wind down, so I decided to head over to Arcs to see my little friend Brooklyn for some TLC. Brooklyn is one of the best stylists in Las Vegas, catering to celebrities, corporate CEOs and anyone who wants to get treated like a VIP. If you have never had the salon's "Sex in the Sinky" shampoo/massage then you’re missing out.

Marc Jay: If you can hear the water running in the background, I’m now getting the most incredible shampoo and head massage, which I believe they call, “Sex in the Sinky.” It’s really the greatest invention and giving me the “Sex in the Sinky” now is Miss Brooklyn. Say hello, Brooklyn.

Brooklyn: Hello (laughs)

Marc Jay: Now, I’m doing this interview while I’m having my hair washed, which is something I’ve never done before, so I’m at a bit of a loss for words; but tell us about what I’m actually receiving now.

Brooklyn: We believe the foreplay to any great experience starts with a great shampoo, so we do a 10 – 15 minute head, neck, scalp and shoulder massage to set us up for a great shampoo, haircut, color or style experience.

Marc Jay: Now, I’ve been to a lot of hair dressers and had my hair washed many times, but this really is an experience that everybody that’s reading this on Clubplanet should come and explore. Now, you have two hair salons in Vegas, tell us about their locations.

Brooklyn: We have two located in Mandalay Bay – one on the beach level next to the spa, which is our original location, and then we built a second location, where we are right now. This one is called “Arcs,” which stands for A Robert Cromeans Salon and it is located in Mandalay Place which is the shopping area between Mandalay and Luxor.

Marc Jay: Now this is the number one hair salon in Las Vegas, so naturally a lot of celebrities come in. So, what kinds of people have come in here to get their hair done?

Brooklyn: We’ve had all types, everyone from the CEOs of the hotels to Tera Patrick whose hair I did for the AVNs, everyone from the porn stars to the CEOs (laughs). But some of our favorite celebrities that have come in are Reese Witherspoon, Oscar De La Hoya, and we did Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas. We get a lot of athletes and fighters from the UFC; Punkass, the guy from Tapout, comes in every time there’s a fight to get his head shaved. Brandon Flowers from The Killers lives here and comes in when he’s in town. Actually, I’m having Teri Hatcher, we’ve done Joss Stone... the list goes on.

Marc Jay: So it’s the who’s who in Vegas and the A-list crowd from L.A. Now tell us, you’ve been cutting hair for a long time, when did you start and how did you get into it?

Brooklyn: I fell into it. I started off as a reservationist, worked my way through school and I’ve been a stylist for six years. I mean, our boss is the artistic director of Paul Mitchell so we do a lot of shows and a lot of education all over the world. I was really lucky to fall into it. I was a guest of the salon before I started working here and I just really liked the energy and I liked the people who worked here, so when I decided to go to hair school, I thought this would be the best place to be cause it was my favorite place to hang out.

                                                                                              ***

Marc Jay: So, now I’ve moved over to the chair where I’m now getting my hair cut by the beautiful Brooklyn and one thing you should know about her is that she has an adorable child, and has this job, so I want to ask, how do you manage to do those two things at the same time so successfully?

Brooklyn: That’s what happens when you become a mom, you learn to multitask (laughs).

Marc Jay: You just juggle your job and having a child at the same time?

Brooklyn: Yeah, I mean, the job is the easy part, having a baby is the hard part. But as a mom you learn to do a lot of things at once and you have to be good at a lot of things at once.

Marc Jay: So if people want to come in and specifically see you, which they should do because you’re the best in here, what days of the week are you here?

Brooklyn: I’m here Wednesday through Saturday from 10 – 6 so you can just call and make a reservation.

Marc Jay: And I know there’s a special offer for our Clubplanet readers, tell us a little bit about that.

Brooklyn: Well, we have two offers. The first one is offered by the whole salon and it’s a free color consultation where we like to ask “are you in love with your color?” With that, any time that we do any color services, we give a complimentary take-home kit so that way you have some products to take home with you to ensure your color. We’re also celebrating our “rituals” which are experiences back in our Lather Lounge. We’re infusing sugar scrubs and Perrier and different kinds of conditioning treatments, and if you come in and mention that Marc Jay sent you, we’ll offer you a complimentary beauty ritual.

Marc Jay: So we have an exclusive gift just for you, so take care and come in for your free beauty ritual while I enjoy the rest of my haircut.
