While most 23-year-olds were trying to figure out their career path, Angelo was busy opening his own salon. And three expansions and more than two decades later, he's still at it. Each day he works with his team of talented stylists and aestheticians to accomplish the goal he laid out in 1991: to create a one-stop beauty shop where clients could get all of their aesthetic needs met. To that end, Angelo employs nail artists who pamper the digits of patrons waiting for hair colour treatments to finish processing, as well as aestheticians who dole out rose, mud, or chocolate baths that can be paired with massages, skin treatments, or giant chocolate duckies.
Studio 30 describes itself as “a stylish salon with great stylists and an equally stylish atmosphere,” and the menu of salon services reinforces its commitment to beauty and style alike. Armed with shears, razors, color, and wax, the staff transform clients’ manes, remove unwanted body hair, and perform facials that nourish and revitalize skin.
Within DeJa'Vu Salon Spa and Boutique's walls, expert stylists and massage therapists treat guests to relaxing spa treatments and makeovers. They lead guests to spa chairs for manicures and pedicures, or lead them into serene, private rooms for customized massages that aim to unknot back muscles.
After watching her mother lose her fight with cancer, Lisa Glad promised to dedicate the rest of her life to helping others let go of pain and stress. So she became a massage therapist. She joins the team of Steel Magnolias Spa & Boutique, where all members work tirelessly to help both men and women relax with spa and skincare services. At the spa, aestheticians use Gentle Touch facial treatments, which blend high-tech skincare methods with natural ingredients, for custom facials that cleanse and exfoliate faces and favorite masquerade masks. In addition to Lisa's massages, the menu of services also includes body sugaring, a method of all-natural hair removal. After any service, clients can peruse a selection of wallets, handbags, jewelry, and skincare products in the spa's boutique.
