Welcome to Metropolis.
You have arrived.
We’re so excited that you’ve chosen our talented team, & we look forward to meeting you. Let us show you how we will make you look & feel your very best, starting with your first visit.
Your experience starts when you use our online booking system. We know choosing the right services can be difficult & overly technical so we’ve simplified your choices found below, with brief descriptions to better help you decide. The first options under “New Client Services” is where you begin. After booking, next stop is the salon.
Downtown Columbia, especially Main Street, is growing! Parking is easiest directly across the street at the Cannon Garage on the first floor & ramp, or there is metered street parking if you prefer.
Once inside, our friendly Operations Team will greet you & give you a brief tour of the salon. After you’ve checked in and been offered a beverage (adult or otherwise), you’ll be introduced to your Stylist for your consultation. We love when you come prepared to talk about what you want & don’t want. We encourage you to bring photos to show us what you love & hate. We’ll discuss the amount of maintenance that’s right for you & how frequently you’re willing to visit the salon. By sharing all of these things with us we can better understand your wants & needs, in order to provide the perfect service for you based on your lifestyle & activities. We will plan out not only your first visit, but a long-term plan to ensure all of your goals are met.
Once you’re all settled & comfortable, our magic will begin; from a custom blended color, to the best cut for your face shape, we guarantee you’ll be happy when we’re finished.
New Client Service Menu
New Client services are custom made to allow us enough time & product to help you reach your goals. These appointments are intentionally longer than our maintenance services & are priced accordingly. At Metropolis, our prices & services are based on your hair, not your gender. When booking, please choose the option based on where you hair is currently, not your desired result. All color & highlight services are booked with a Finishing Service. You may choose between:
Shampoo & BlowDry: $11 - $16, Shampoo & scalp massage followed by a basic round brush blow-dry.
Professional BlowOut: $34- $49, Shampoo & scalp massage followed by a BlowOut, including hot tools.
Shampoo, Haircut, BlowDry: $45 - $65, Shampoo, scalp massage, & custom haircut with a blow-dry finish.
