Salon 130’s owner, Jena—a 28-year veteran of the beauty industry—graduated from MaChere Beauty Academy and worked as a hair-color educator before opening her full-service salon and spa. Along with a staff of licensed manicurists and aestheticians, certified massage therapists, and experienced stylists—including Niki LaBelle, who earned the _Lansing State Journal_’s People’s Choice Award for Best Stylist in 2011—she pampers patrons with a range of spa and beauty services.
Pale green trim and pastel walls invoke a playful ambiance in the salon, where stylists cut, color, and coif hair. Manicurists pamper hands, feet, and eagle talons with traditional, Shellac, and acrylic nail services, including one-hour pedicures set in private spa rooms. In the spa, three soothing facials and two body wraps purify skin, and chemical peels, spray tans, waxes, and makeup applications augment clients’ beauty. Cares wind away as massage therapists draw on Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and trigger-point techniques to knead away aches and pains.
