Business Spotlight: Lit Salon Park East
Lit Salon, like most of favorite businesses, is an experience. It’s not just a fabulous haircut, but time to unwind and indulge with a little self-care. Lit also abides by the highest standards with its products. You’ll love one of their latest skin care lines—Osmosis, which is free of everything you don’t want on your sin (e.g. parabens, preservatives, etc.). Need another reason to love this locally owned business? Lit partners with Children with Hair Loss to empower clients to donate their locks to kids in need. I chatted with Master Stylist/Esthetician Alysse Gray to learn more about the story behind Lit.
Choose Park City: What sets Lit apart from other Park City salons?
Alysse: Lit stands for Love, Innovation and Talent. Our culture has always been the foundation of everything that we do and we have cultivated a staff that not only provides a superior service but also stands behind these principles. We love to continuously educate ourselves and our guests with the latest industry inspiration.
Our original location, Lit Summit, opened in December 2013 and has six styling stations and a barbershop. Lit Park East opened in October 2017 with four styling stations, two manicure and pedicure stations and two private treatment rooms. Our primary aim is to provide Park City with a premier salon experience and now we have two Lits to better serve you!
What are some of the beauty trends the Lit team is most excited about right now?
As we head into summer, some of the current beauty trends are focused on looking as natural as possible. With hair, we are seeing natural color techniques like balayage and hair painting, while utilizing your natural wave and textures as if you came straight from the beach! With skin, we are seeing clean, fresh faces with a little definition on the brows.
We love that you do so much more than hair. What are your eye and lip treatments like? Any other service that’s great for summer?
YES! We love taking care of your skin with non-invasive, no-down-time treatments! The best summer sun protection is starting with healthy skin. We use Osmosis and Intraceuticals skin care products, which are known for the highest standard in quality ingredients and efficacy.
We have a 60-minute Customized Holistic Facial, in which each step (from the cleanser to the serums and mask) can be customized to your skin care needs using highly concentrated powder actives. The eye and lip masks are pure collagen and hyaluronic acid, made for plumping fine lines, minimizing dark circles and firming your skin in those delicate areas. We also do Oxygen Facial Treatments, which is very soothing for angry post-sun skin.
For those who see a Kamas address and are unfamiliar with Park East … tell us about your retail environment and how to get there from 224.
We are only just barely in Kamas—really only a few minutes from Old Town. The Shops at Park East are a new retail development just off Highway 248. If you are traveling from 224, you can either take Kearns Boulevard toward Kamas, or you can go through The Junction to get to I-80 and take the exit for I-40 toward Heber. Either way, once you get to Exit 4, head east toward Kamas. After a mile, you will see the silver farm-style buildings on the south side of 248. Turn in there and we are in Building B on the front side of the last building, retail Suite 11.
