Behind the pedicure thrones at P'Zazz Hair, Nail & Day Spa, a sprawling mural depicts rural splendor with arching columns in the foreground. But those very columns come to life in the spa at the nearby manicure station. Along with busts of figures from antiquity, these fixtures create a neoclassical ambiance every bit as elegant as the services and results rendered.

Aestheticians perform facials, peels, and body scrubs using PCA products. The team can also primp hair and add color to it, or they can work on nails to make them as attractive as a butterfly that understands chaos theory.
