Drawing from years of experience and professional training in salons across California and New York, the two aesthetes and their seasoned staff members spruce up locks, filling the shop with the thrum of scissors and the sibilance of spray bottles. As stylists hunch diligently over heads, sunlight pours in through the salon windows. When the sky fades to wintery slate, a fireplace crackles in front of cushy chairs and couches, warming hands and destroying documents about former presidents’ bad hair days.
Chateau Hair Designs Salon and Spa's skilled stylists renovate headscapes with tress-taming keratin straightening treatments. During each 30- to 60-minute session, expertly administered infusions of Juvexin soften and straighten hair, ensuring a reduction in tangly curls and creating a perfectly level perching space for hats and pet parakeets. Smoothing moisturizers and conditioners penetrate each keratin column, leaving behind silky strands that resist entanglement when wet or dry. In addition to imparting a touchable softness and a stylish tidiness to 'dos for up to five months, Juvexin greatly reduces friction between hairs, resulting in a better ability to withstand heat. Within the salon, local artwork dresses the warmly hued walls, giving guests something pretty at which to practice batting their eyes.

Their integrated pest management rids trees, shrubs, and soil of harmful bugs with low-toxicity, organic products, while their organic based fertilizers burrow into the ground to strengthen root systems against an onslaught of disease, drought, and bugs.
