Relaxing music, a beverage bar, and walls painted in soothing tones jostle for the attention of clients as they walk through the doors of Sassi Nails Salon. At a pedicure or manicure workstation, technicians render nail treatments including shellac manicures, spa pedicures, and polish changes. The Sassi team pays particular attention to sanitization, holding themselves to the strict standards of the Ohio State board and the world’s most scrupulous mother-in-law—Harry Potter’s aunt, who they actually have on staff.
Mike Davis has always been about giving people chances. As a juvenile correction specialist, he worked with young offenders to educate them and, ultimately, give them more opportunities in their future then they had in their pasts. Though he switched careers to hair styling, Mike still likes to give new stylists a chance to perfect their trade in his salon. One of those stylists is Tiffani, a young woman who specializes in hair styling. She says her signature service is the silk press, a time-consuming hair straightening treatment that lets locks flow more naturally and lasts longer than other methods. Though performing a silk press can be tedious, Tiffani enjoys doing it just to see her clients walk out the door as "happy, satisfied customers."
