They follow the French method, which takes into account each client’s facial proportions, cranial structure, and lifestyle before styling their hair.

Sparkling pink walls and Asian-inspired lamps add to the atmosphere of color-coded luxury. Facials, waxing, and massages round out the menu of beautifying services.

They can ease muscle tension with soothing, hot-stone massage, or perform a lymphatic-drainage massage to facilitate recovery from surgery. A skincare expert can deeply cleanse skin during a stress-reducing spa facial, or address mild scarring or acne with a medical-grade chemical peel. To target cellulite, the crew might recommend noninvasive, roller-based Endermologie sessions or minimally invasive mesotherapy injections.
They also offer mani-pedis, hair services, and holistic healthcare, and do it all within a clean, chic spa environment that aims to cultivate a tranquil vibe. Collections of earth-toned rocks line the bottom edges of the walls, leading from the white-on-white reception area toward treatment rooms that branch off from a hallway that is elegantly adorned with sheer, white drapery.
