Andrew’s Hair Salon also offers expert facial waxing services, keeping eyebrows shaped and upper lips and chins smooth to help clients impersonate wax mannequins at Madame Tussauds.

Additionally, facials and waxing refresh visages and skin, and a kaleidoscope of packages such as Girls’ Night Out, Working Girl De-Stress, and Me, Me, Me, Me blend several treatments into a single session.
