Sophi is a sibling of the successful Phia Salon in the Short North Arts District, and is a boutique style salon studio and salt spa. Sophi houses a collective of skilled, synergistic individuals, who are focused on health, advanced training, and integrity. We believe that beauty lives at the intersection of wisdom and wellness, and we’re committed to excellence in the client experience.
Our clients and staff say it all. Their happiness has proven the success of the Phia Salon concept. We’ve blended the excitement, support, and development potential of larger companies and salons, with an entrepreneurial spirit of a small, locally-owned company. The result has been consistently recognized nationally among Salon Today's Salon 200.
We are proud to partner with Davines for both color and retail. We love their extraordinary quality, unbending commitment to the environment, and B-Corp status. Davines color is infused with plant pigments, palm oil and quinoa proteins, and the products are second-to-none. In the rare instance where there is a result that cannot be obtained with Davines color or retail product, we are pleased to have access to Pulp Riot and Pravanna.
