A MIDTOWN 'DO' ... Monica Foster Salon at 2699 Middlefield Road launched its new name in the Midtown Shopping Center in Palo Alto in February, livening up the former DS Newman Salon by adding new furniture and a paint job of a warmer tone of beige with a gray accent. Co-owner and stylist Monica Foster said of salon clients, "We treat them like friends and want them to be comfortable." The salon features eight stylists and colorists with various fortes (cut, color, extension), using products by Sojourn, Rene Furterer Paris and Prive. They also provide the keratin treatment that focuses on smoothing out frizzy hair to make it more manageable. Foster said she plans to add three more stylists from Menlo Park to the current hair team. Makeup and facial waxing are also available.
