Jessica Soltero, a six-year veteran in the hair industry, honed her skills at Paul Mitchell cosmetology school. She now works from within the calming, mocha-hued confines of Visual Changes Hair Salon, where clients lend her their hair to obtain chic cuts and color treatments. Instead of outfitting customers’ heads with attention-grabbing road flares, Jessica specializes in making locks pop with eye-catching blonde-dye applications and beaded extensions.

The spa's aestheticians also perform acid peels that improve tone and texture and waxing services that remove unwanted hair by the root.
