As a practitioner of the Aveda arts, Kriza Aveda Salon Spa stocks its shelves, cosmetic counters, and salon stations with natural, botanical serums and salves. To pamper clients, the staff peppers each service with luxurious flair—stylists treat guests to a head, neck, shoulder, and hand massage with every haircut, before touching up makeup for ladies. Between appointments, they’ll even trim up bangs to keep cuts stylish or keep head hair from weaving itself into eyelashes. In addition to applying makeup for brides or for special occasions, makeup artists also consult with clients to teach them how to enhance their features and pick the shades that suit their particular skin tone during lessons. Plant-based facials leave skin radiant, diminish wrinkles, or address acne. In every location, the decor mirrors the commitment to naturalism with a light, airy feel, characterized by mostly white walls and plenty of mirrors and glass.

The skilled stylist are consistently on top of their game for special occasions, such as weddings, proms, and quinceañeras. C Salon carves out a piece of its menu specifically for those services—bridesmaid upstyles and bride trial runs, to name a couple. A couple of C Salon's stylists even have experience working for film and television, since it's crucial that the cords running from the camera to the monitor look keratin-treatment-level shiny.
