Any visitor stepping into Strand Café Ultra Salon for the first time will know immediately that this is the right place for a unique beauty experience. With a talented staff and a mission to bring “an artistic interpretation of beauty” to every client, Strand Café is the Short North Arts District’s go-to spot for those looking to inject some personal expression into their beauty routines.

Owner Christina Crump took her vision of interpretive beauty to the Short North hoping to settle in an area with a flair for individuality.

“They really embrace outward thinking,” she notes of the district’s residents, adding, “they very much support the artistic vibe.”

The Strand Café “menu” offers full body waxing, hair, and makeup services as well as a full nail spa, allowing staff and clients to get imaginative with nail designs or stick with the natural look. “It’s not just plain polish,” says Crump.

While the Strand Café concept thrives in a vibrant community, a newcomer may choose from a diverse array of beauty services to suit an individual style.

“We do all kinds of hair, skin, and nails for whatever you may be looking for . . . conservative or really funky,” says Crump, “I do everything.”

Those looking for their next girls’ night out should also know that Strand Cafe is glad to accommodate birthday or bachelorette parties where groups can get glammed up in good company.

This social salon also hosts a variety of events throughout the year and features original artwork regularly.  Most recently, Strand Café commissioned local artists to paint a wall-spanning mural embodying each painter’s personal interpretation of beauty.

Repeat customers and first-timers alike are encouraged to take advantage of Strand Café’s convenient online booking.  Appointments can be reserved at any time, 24/7 on the salon’s website.

A consultation with the creative, multitalented staff is sure to have any newcomer inspired.  Whether just exploring the neighborhood or seeking out the perfect makeover experience, Strand Café Ultra Salon is the place to go for a one-of-a-kind beauty experience.
