Even from the first step inside Chau Bella Salon & Spa, it’s hard not to feel like you’ve entered a different world. That’s because every single surface is pure white, from the welcome counter and floors to the white cabinetry and chairs, all the way up to the shimmering chandelier that lights it all. Perhaps it’s all meant to suggest the purification that takes place inside, which includes facials that cleanse the skin and signature massages that clear the mind. Or maybe the bright-white decor is a subtle nod to the spa’s popularity with brides, who trust the salon to apply their makeup, style their hair, and, when the salon gets out of grad school and the time is right, propose.
