A tangerine accent wall serves as a single pop of color in a stark white salon stocked with chrome-and-white furniture. Natural light warms the space, illuminating Salon Amour’s beauty experts as they employ hair and makeup products by Aveda to revitalize tired strands and restore beauty to dull visages.

Aveda's eco-friendly products come in packaging made from recycled materials and contain ingredients derived from the essences of plants and flowers.
