Harmony Salon's staff of aestheticians and nail technicians take pride in their ability to make clients look young again, working to improve the appearance of faces, fingers, and toes. Techs file, buff, and shape nails on hands and feet before applying the clients' choice of polishes from trusted brands such as Essie, OPI, and Exclusive Brand Dip. When they're not working on nails, the staff focuses on guests' faces, clearing away hair with standard waxing or eyebrow threading—a more gentle method that involves weaving brows together into a majestic tapestry.
Inside Classie Nail Care Salon, nail artists deck out nails in styles that range from elegant to bold and sassy. They use everything from acrylic enhancements to long-lasting OPI gel polishes, which come in a range of colors and designs. These colors can be further enhanced by nail art, which puts a special touch on manicures without adding a prosthetic finger just to see if anyone notices.
Cofounder Tina Mui-Wong boasts a passion for the beauty industry that spurred her to earn a cosmetology license before completing high school and establish a pair of spas that have thrived for more than 25 years. In a 2010 interview with Pasadena Magazine, Mui-Wong admits to being a "product freak," which is reflected in her role as developer of Amadeus's signature line, T.E.A. The staff and salon has appeared in the film Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, graced television screens on ABC's Extreme Makeover, and exhibited their handiwork on the Rose Bowl queen and her court of chrysanthemum noblesse for two decades.
Amadeus takes pride in its custom massages, and re-trains every nail technician in-house to ensure updated mastery of the hand jive. Guests receive slippers, robes, and complimentary skin consultations upon request, and may pad down the scented hallways after their treatment to decompress in a eucalyptus steam room.
Yolande Carson has her stylistic feet in both the historical and modern world. She graduated from On Set Motion Picture Hair Academy with a focus on wig and period hairstyling. She used those skills to add an air of authenticity to historical films, indies, and music videos—where even a star’s hair can demand its own trailer. Now the owner of Scissors Paper Rock Salon, Yolande draws on her 27 years of professional experience to lead a fleet of deft stylists as they shear and color locks using Enjoy haircare products.
Where the Scissors Paper Rock’s stylists leave off, skilled aesthetician Tatiana Siegfried picks up, perfecting skin with waxing and facials that incorporate custom masks. Before they leave, clients can drop by the salon’s boutique, which stocks purses, jewelry by Zoe Kanemitsu, and vintage dresses.
