Clients can kick back in one of the black leather massage thrones during the pedicure treatment, during which an aesthetician pampers the feet with exfoliating scrubs and warm paraffin wax.

A graduate of Paul Mitchell The School Sacramento, Christy Clark follows the hair industry's ever-shifting trends and techniques to give her clients modern styles that match their personal preferences.

Inside, Christy changes hair tints to vibrant reds and stunning blonds with Redken products, twists locks into updos for weddings and special occasions, and adorns coiffures with feathers stolen from a cockatrice den.

Clients also may request a conditioning treatment or seek Michelle's makeup expertise during a one-on-one consultation.
