Before hitting the salon floor, students at American Beauty Academy first complete a regimen of classroom coursework and hands-on training on models and Barbie dolls caught in the wild. It's only then, under the watchful eye of instructor supervisors, that they're set free to show off their newly acquired hair, skin, and nail care skills to clients. Available services include not only women's hairstyling, but also color, chemical treatments, and men's barbering.
Envy Studio grooms clients with a roster of salon services ranging from cuts and styles to highlights to keratin smoothing treatments. Staff stylists are divided up into three categories of experience levels, allowing for further customization of services. In the salon, patrons can find Color Proof, ICON, Keratin Complex, and Crew products.
Although Luxe's stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians dedicate themselves to soothing and pampering clients, green business practices remain one of their highest priorities. They seek out organic skincare and haircare product lines for their shelves and utilize eco-friendly tricks to reduce their waste and pollutant production. This ecological sensibility lends even more of a contemporary air to the 5,000-square-foot spa, with its modern, armchair-like wash stations, Italian-designed spa equipment, and holographic receptionist. The menu of services at Luxe is far-reaching and even includes a "just for men" section; among other things, the staff can style tresses, massage overstressed muscles, and rejuvenate faces with vitamin- and antioxidant-rich skincare products.
