URBAN STYLE CELEBRATES FIRST ANNIVERSARY DURING BATAVIA’S DOWNTOWN BLOCK PARTY
Batavia, IL: One year ago Alex and Gabriel Sosa were busy putting the final touches on their new salon and getting settled in at their new space at 3 E Wilson St. A labor of love transformed the rustic shell into something patrons consistently say, “looks like it belongs in downtown Chicago.” That’s just fine with Alex, lead stylist, and husband Gabriel, Salon Manager. That is exactly the look and feel they wanted and could not be happier with the outcome. One year ago the Sosa’s teamed up with Batavia MainStreets’ Downtown Block Party and held their Grand Opening with lots of fanfare, food and mini-complimentary services. It went over so well, they are again teaming up with the Downtown Block Party to celebrate their first anniversary with an Open House on Sunday, September 5 from 4-7 p.m.
Urban Style is an organic concept salon and spa that does hair color and correction, cuts and styles, make up, all aesthetic needs, massage and special occasion hair and make-up featuring all natural products. Salon Manager Gabriel Sosa says “Green is good and beautiful” and they continue to bring their clients the latest most forward trends and styles in hair, skin and body care without hurting them or the environment.
The salon carries John Masters Organics, Intelligent Nutrients, Organic Color Systems, and are excited about their just launched Priori Coffee Berry skin products.
Urban Style staff has grown to eight and include Salon Manager Gabriel and wife Alex (lead stylist, colorist), David (hair and make-up), Hillary and Alyssa (hair/colorist) as well as Kate and Cassey (skin care services) and Leslie (massage – hot stone, deep tissue & pre-natal). Year two Urban Style looks forward to expanding their current organic lines and services as well as developing a website. Currently they can be found online on facebook or via phone at (630) 406-0230. Hours are: Tuesday 9-6, Wednesday and Thursday 1-9, Friday and Saturday 9-4 and closed Sunday and Monday. Appointments are also available upon request to meet the client’s needs. Co-owner Alex Sosa and husband Gabriel invite everyone to stop by for their first anniversary festivities during the upcoming downtown Batavia Block Party on Sunday September 5 from 4-7 pm. Alex says, “Stop by to meet our friendly staff, to see our unique spa and to enjoy an array of mini complimentary services and a great time with celebratory food and spirits.”
