SF Fashion Events: Dior – A Life in Pictures, Venus Superstar Trunk Show, Beauty Expo + More

This usually quiet down around these parts when a holiday weekend is on the make, and this week is no exception. But you can still find plenty of worthy adventures in style in the coming days. Drawing us out this week are the Dior: A Life in Pictures collaboration between Code Salon and The Factory, a Venus Superstar Trunk Show at Castro boit Fiat Lux and the weekend’s annual Beauty Expo from the SFFAMA. Also catching our attention this week are Wednesday’s Steven Alan Dossier Launch Party at the retailer’s new location and a Skimlinks Workshop hosted by SF Fashion + Tech for fashion publishers that delves into the latest in affiliate marketing.

And of course, as you know, it doesn’t stop there. We’re adding new fashion happenings all the time. Find details on these and other upcoming San Francisco fashion events waiting on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.

Inside SoMa’s Code Salon

Movable stations and mirrors allow the salon to shift its interiors to accommodate classes and events.

In the shampoo rooms, bench-like beds instead of chairs make for a comfortable angle during shampooing.

Another unique design touch in the light-filled salon.

Curious about Code, the latest salon to open South of Market? Feast your eyes on a few juicy shots of the oh-so-SoMa interiors, which are done up with an industrial-meets-chic attitude that fits seamlessly into surrounding neighborhood.

During our tour of the space last week, the newly-opened beauty destination showed itself to be both surprisingly spacious, with high ceilings and expansive windows letting in a serious amount of natural light, and space-conscious, with movable mirrors and stylist stations designed to give way for events and classes and a separate shampoo room created to offer clients respite from the hustle and bustle of the main floor. While a great deal of attention was obviously given to the salon’s design, we found it to still be an approachable salon with an outgoing, highly knowledgeable team headed up by Founder Cheryl Snodgrass and Master Stylist Louise Frost.

The full Aveda product line makes it an ideal place for anyone who can’t get enough of the Shampure scent (ourselves included).
