As an Aveda concept salon and spa, Belliard's Hair Design Studio and Spa naturally augments its services with the wholesome, herbal products Aveda has become known for.

Stationed across the spa's hardwood floors, hairstylists shape manes into fashionable 'dos, massage therapists dish out a repertoire of kneads, and nail technicians accent fingertips with OPI Gelcolor. A warm fireplace collaborates with subdued lighting to soothe clients sitting in sleek styling chairs.
A combination of technical prowess and creativity steady the shears and blow through the hairdryers at Bernard's Salon and Spa, a beauty center that aims to have its clients feeling like they just stepped off the cover of Vogue.

Massage therapists, meanwhile, use swedish and deep tissue techniques to ease tension from the body, making clients appear more relaxed, approachable, and less likely to pop a neck vein.
