A soft glow of gold emanates from within Asha Salon and Spa, enticing guests to enter into its spacious haven covered in sunset-colored hues and irregular amber tiles. But the d?cor isn't Asha Salon's only distinctive feature. The beauty haven also attracts patrons with a menu of Indian-influenced treatments and bridal packages. Along with henna hair dying and facial threading, guests are beautified with mehandi art, which consists of intricate designs hand-drawn across the back of the hands and over the palms. Back in vibrantly colored treatment rooms, aestheticians ward off signs of aging with herb and fresh fruit-infused facials, while a Shahnaz Husain's diamond treatment exfoliates the outer layers of the skin with finely granulated diamonds.
