An elaborately dressed, early-19th-century woman welcomes "ladies and gents" from her perch on O'Haira Salon's ornamental entrance sign, which hints at the facility's charming sophistication and playful tribute. Upon entering, patrons are greeted by thematic odes to Gone With the Wind that infuse the salon with romantic flourishes and inspire d?j? vu of past lives as movie buffs.
