Blue Velvet Salon at 2834 Culver Road in Mountain Brook is listed as one of the 100 Best Salons in America in the August issue of Elle magazine. It's the only Alabama salon on the list.

"We're awfully proud. It's pretty exciting," said salon manager Charles Earle. "With all the phone calls and attention that has come from it, we couldn't be happier."

A Dallas woman flying into Birmingham for a business meeting last week saw the list and called the salon for an appointment after landing. "That kind of thing is fantastic for us," Earle said.

Earle said the 13-year-old business, owned by Rachelle Perrin of Birmingham, was selected based on an extensive survey the staff completed earlier this year and the magazine's discussion with many in the beauty industry.

Named after the movie, "Blue Velvet," the salon offers haircuts, coloring, deep conditioning, permanent waves, hair extensions, body waxing, and eyebrow and eyelash tinting. Its seven stylists and support staff like to use Bumble and Bumble hair products on its female and male clients, and will even order lunch from nearby Olxea's for busy clients.

Last year, Elle magazine tapped Richard Joseph SalonSpa and Oak Street Hair Group, both of Mountain Brook, among America's 52 top salons.
