As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
Aided by their arsenal of powerful equipment and more than a decade of experience, Dry Door's team of household cleaners divests carpets and floors of built-up grime.

Floor cleaners work with similar care, slathering hardwood, laminate, tile, and linoleum surfaces with environmentally friendly cleaning agents to imbue them with a brilliant shine. The fully insured staffers also resolve water-damage issues, dispatching from their office 24 hours a day to help homeowners in need.
