Nancy Hernandez found her first client at the age of 16, and she didn't even need to leave her house. After experimenting with her sister's hair and spending more than 15 years in the beauty industry, Nancy now owns her own salon and spa, where she cultivates a stylish ambiance and concocts her own line of beauty products. Her experienced staff primps clients with a range of pampering services and employs products by Kérastase, Dermalogica, and Bumble and bumble. They also shade epidermises with Golden Sol spray-tan formula, which gives skin a bronze glow without the risks associated with lying under the sun's rays or a melting gong.
