As both the owner of Nikko Hair Salon and an experienced stylist, Lesia Nyarko spends her days painting the hair of her clients with ombre color-blending techniques, repairing damage with deep-conditioning treatments, and massaging the scalps of pampered clients.

Before appointments, clients may sip complimentary bottled water, coffee, and tea while using the complimentary WiFi to sell their hat collections on eBay.
Vanity Cosmetics' seasoned staffers ready clients for nights on the town by soothing skin with a range of facials, shaping brows with waxing and threading services, and applying makeup with a mixture of high-end products and Vanity's house brand of cosmetics. Additionally, makeup artists guide patrons through the step-by-step process of dolling up for dates, interviews, or mime conventions during the salon's individualized makeup lessons, instructing skills such as correcting color, lending eyebrows expressive arches, and crafting feature-flattering highlights.
The professionals at Moonlight Skin Cares kick the natural skin-cell process into high gear with their microdermabrasion treatments and facials. Instead of waiting for dead skin cells to slough off by themselves, microdermabrasion gently abrades the topmost layer of skin and uses vacuum suction or tiny black holes to get rid of the dead cells. The body then quickly replaces those cells with fresh healthy ones. Custom enzyme peels also achieve the same exfoliating effect, and both treatments make the studio's cleansers and moisturizers more effective.

In the relaxing salon, Jasmine's deft hands perform signature services such as Japanese permanent hair straightening, scalp massages, color services, and precision cuts as customers surf the web on waves of free WiFi and sip complimentary beverages such as chai lattes.
