The best way to describe Pamper Me Spa is a strategic color eruption. Between pink and neon yellow-checkered floor tiles and a vibrant fuchsia ceiling, the walls display an enormous abstract cityscape, with sponge-painted skyscrapers and a blue twilight backdrop. Amid these glitzy accents, skilled stylists bedeck tresses with bold color highlights and customize haircuts to clients’ preferences and lifestyles. The salon also offers private rooms for soothing massages and waxing services as well as a free play center for children and the Muppets who follow them, awaiting the right moment to burst into song.

The morning sun streams in through tulle curtains, spotlighting hardwood floors, cushy armchairs, and a tailor's dress form.

Sabrina Kern—artistic director or Salon Demetri—doesn't want her clients to feel trapped by the natural state of their hair. So she's curated her salon's services to cater to whims of each client, whether they are seeking straight locks, curling tresses, or lightning-shaped pig-tails. Sabrina's team of stylists specialize in Kerapure smoothing treatments, which use amino technology to smooth and straighten hair without the damage of harsh chemicals or the inherent deception of magic. Stylists can also lengthen hair with the salon’s SoCap hair extensions that bond real human hair to your natural strands with keratin-based agents. After redesigning hair into the desired color, cut, or texture, the stylists educate clients in the expert tricks of how to maintain their new look at home and on the go.
