Like Santa Claus's wardrobe, East West Salon & Spa draws inspiration from multiple continents and multiple centuries. In addition to pampering guests with services ranging from microdermabrasion facials and bikini waxing to haircuts, the one-stop shop for women introduces visitors to a wealth of centuries-old non-Western salon treatments. These include natural henna hair coloring for infusing scalps with an earthy, yet vibrant color, or eyebrow threading, an ancient Persian hair-removal technique that removes fine, tiny hairs. Alternatively, stylists prepare clients for weddings with specialty bridal packages or adorn them with South Asian finery from the boutique's selection of sarees, kurtis, bangles, Indian jewelry, and purses, as well as 14- and 18-karat gold diamond rings.

Jones lead a knowledgeable staff in revivifying visages and skin with a diverse array of aesthetic and surgical procedures.

Nonsurgical treatments, such as chemical peels, adeptly tackle blemishes without the need for obtrusive tools. Laser hair removal uses the latest technology from Alma Lasers, providing a virtually pain-free treatment for all skin types.
