A gold mermaid watches out over the bustling activity inside NY Splash Beauty Salon. As jets of water splash up against the gilded sculpture, clients seated at the reception bar relax before and after treatments, soaking in the sounds of tiny crashing waves. During appointments, stylists pamper patrons above the neck with haircuts, color treatments, and makeup applications. On the spa side, nail technicians clip, buff, and coat keratin covers with vibrant hues. Their waxing experts remove unwanted follicles from legs, arms, and faces in procedures that take less time than shaving or securing an eviction notice for squatting hairs.
