La Prestiges Salon and Spa combines s8alon and spa services under one roof to save clients from wasting gas driving all over town for their aesthetic and relaxation needs. A one-stop pampering shop, the salon and spa houses a staff of beauty professionals who reshape shaggy hairstyles or craft complete makeovers using Paul Mitchell products along with their very own comb and scissor savvy. The aestheticians can treat skin with pumpkin, chocolate, or vitamin-C facials and set skin aglow with spray tans. Nail technicians dazzle hands and feet with mani-pedis and tiny, breathtaking nail designs, whereas makeup artists enhance the natural beauty of facial features with skilled cosmetics application and optional helmet-mounted spotlights. Meanwhile, laser techs use laser light to remove unwanted hair from the face, arms, and legs.
