Like any small business owner, Ofella Slater started out small. She always loved makeup, and her natural talent with the makeup brush was so evident it inspired family and friends to constantly seek her help as they prepared for big events. That hobby soon turned into a professional calling, and before long Ofella found herself doing makeup for brides and fashion shows––when she wasn't busy strutting the catwalk herself, that is. Her modeling career hasn't gotten in the way of her work at O Spa Salon though––in fact, it gives her a keen understanding of what it feels like to be both in front of and behind the camera, allowing her to build a rapport with the teens, brides, and everyday clients that sit in her makeup chair. She even leads comprehensive makeup lessons where she shows clients the colors and techniques that look best on them and invites clients to bring their home makeup bag so that she may pinpoint which items should stay and which should be cannoned into space.
Ofella and her aestheticians know that makeup is no replacement for healthy skin, and so they offer a slew of skincare services.

To complete head to toe transformations, O Spa Salon also offers hair styling, tanning, and nail services and employs a licensed massage therapists who kneads away stress with five different styles of bodywork.
