Shear curtains cascade down the golden, faux marbled walls of Salon La Diva. A marbled black and gray design covers each workstation, where stylists cut, color, curl, and braid hair.

Quinn keeps skin soft and smooth to the touch with her focused waxing treatments. She uses blue hot wax for most of her clients, but is happy to switch to soft wax for those with sensitive skin. She conducts each of these sessions from inside Salon Domani, a full-service salon situated steps away from the Factoria Mall. While waiting to see Quinn, guests can surf free Wi-Fi for pictures of stylish naked mole rats or lounge in one of the lobby's overstuffed chairs.
With a legacy stretching back more than 45 years, All About Hair pairs each of its styling stations with skilled artisans who mold manes for men, women, and children. Dedicated to honing their skills through continued education, these stylists demonstrate their professionalism while employing products from Joico, Redken, American Crew, and Biolage. In addition to haircuts, their roster of hair services includes feather extensions, Japanese hair straightening, and keratin straightening treatments. When they aren't primping coiffures, they render facials using both European and American ingredients and techniques. While extracting unwanted hair, they use a low-temperature wax comprised of natural resins and sun-bleached beeswax that avoid irritating the skin, unlike the Blue Man Group's uniform. They can also treat ultrasensitive epidermises to Brazilian blue hard wax.
