WAXHAW, NC – From the moment you step onto the wrought-iron fenced porch of the white French-modern style house, you feel you are at the home of your best friend–you’re tres chic best friend with a flair for beauty and style. Moss & Black, an upscale, full-service, luxury salon and spa, has all the benefits of a top-of-the-line big city spa with the warm and welcoming vibe of Waxhaw’s small-town charm. Owner, Jennifer Mosblech aims to give you the ultimate experience in beauty!
When you enter the salon and spa, you are immediately enveloped in relaxing hues of pastel pinks and purples, enhanced by the custom chandelier lighting. Salon Director Stacey Thomson greets you with a warm and welcoming smile. There is a plush waiting area with boutique clothing, jewelry, and accessories for you to peruse. The main salon and spa area is an open floor plan with plenty of natural light and beautiful artistic accents. There is a separate, quieter area for facials, eyebrows and lash services, and waxing services.
Mrs. Mosblech moved with her husband, children, and three Pomeranians to Waxhaw 15 years ago from New York. She fell in love with Waxhaw the moment she set foot here, knowing that this was where she wanted to raise her family and start her business. Jennifer is following in the footsteps of her mother, who was a hairdresser with a salon in New York that Jennifer grew up in. Jennifer showed a natural talent for hair cutting and styling at an early age and started working with customers by the time she was eighteen before she even attended beauty school. Since that point, Jennifer graduated from beauty school, took classes from the renowned Redkin Academy, and has invested $7,000 to $10,000 in advanced education classes and seminars, such as invisible weave extensions, advanced blonding, and vivid reds/brunette color enhancements, to perfect her craft.
Before opening Moss & Black, Mosenblech was employed as a private stylist. She has extremely high standards for both herself and her staff and aims to give her customers the absolute best when it comes to beauty and self-care. Each stylist that works at Moss & Black is the top in their field, boasting years of schooling and ongoing educational classes. Mrs. Mosblech requires each stylist to apprentice under her for two years before taking customers on their own, where they learn the finer points of customer relations, style, and the art of cutting hair.
Whether your look is timeless or trendy, Moss & Black has a luxury service for you. Her staff is proficient in current trends like French cutting, which involves softer layers for a youthful and modern look, and has specifically trained staff for African American hair, including braiding and crochet braiding techniques, and a keratin anti-frizz treatment that lasts for nine months, with no harsh chemicals–it is even safe for children too. They have indulgent options for color melting and toning, dimensional reds and brunettes, Balayage, Foilayage, Ombre, and even gray coloring for those that want to grow out their natural grays with vibrancy and shine. Moss & Black also offers glossing shine, keratin treatment, and men’s haircuts as well.
In their aim to be your one-stop beauty destination, Moss & Black offers decadent spa options as well. They offer luxury manicures and pedicures, including a jelly pedicure. The jelly pedicure is unique to the salon and involves bathing the feet in warm gel and essential oils that magically turn back to regular water at the end of the pedicure. The all-natural scrubs are salon-made with scents like brown sugar vanilla, pumpkin, cranberry, and a new citrus experience being made just in time for spring. All scrubs and manicure and pedicure essentials are sterilized and individually packaged for safety. They offer decadent facials performed by an award-winning facial technician, Alona Schimonov, microblading, lash extensions, tinting, and lash lifts by the brow and lash expert Omesha Torres, and total body waxing by waxing specialist Casey Leigh. Moss & Black also holds Botox and Filler events once per month with Dr. Jennifer Bizuneh.
Moss & Black is pleased to announce a brand new French line of Kerastase luxury prescription hair care which they alone are approved to carry in the area. The indulgent products include a wide array of mix-and-match formulas that will help meet your specific hair needs. For example, those with blonde and thin or limp hair can use a hydrating and volumizing formula that is not only safe for blondes but will prevent breakage too. Moss & Black is also bringing the blow-out back. Mosblech was highly trained in New York in the best techniques and has passed those skills on to her staff. A blowout is the perfect pre-date service with the results lasting for days. Thursday and Fridays Moss & Black have a Blow Dry Happy Hour; please visit their site for more details.
To give back to the community that she loves, Jennifer and Moss & Black are creating goodie bags for local teachers with a 15% off-for-life pass. With everything teachers have gone through in the past year and a half with virtual learning and all of the effects of COVID, Jennifer wants to offer them some time to relax and rejuvenate after all of their hard work. Jennifer is also working with charities assisting women in crisis where the women can come to Moss & Black as guests and receive free haircuts and coloring to help them feel beautiful and get them back on their feet again.
Jennifer and the staff at Moss & Black are warm and sincere. Their goal is to bring your outer beauty up to match the glowing radiance of your inner beauty. Clients have felt so well-loved and cared for at Moss & Black that they tear up at the results Jennifer and her staff provide. The luxury services at the salon and spa are transformative and the staff is approachable, making clients feel just as comfortable as if they were spending time with their best friend. We will be hearing more about the individual staff members in upcoming issues of the Tri-W News. Jennifer wants you to think of Moss & Black Salon and Spa as your home away from home, complete with complimentary beverages and refreshments, where you can relax between treatments or just spend a little time reconnecting with yourself. Moss & Black wants you to leave your salon and spa experience feeling as beautiful on the outside as you do on the inside, full of vitality, positivity, and confidence.
