A wall bisects Hello Beautiful Colour Salon & Art Spa's honey-toned studio. On one side, styling stations line up with mirrors mounted on easels. On the other side, a lounge combines the feel of a beauty boutique with that of a café. Shelf upon shelf of products from Biolage, Moraccanoil, and Pravana surrounds funky red tables where clients sip and shampoo their hair with coffee.

Meanwhile, Hello Beautiful's aestheticians tend to the body with chemical peels, facials, and a relaxation massage.
