A happy client once declared that if Nancy Chao's skincare skills were a restaurant "she would have six stars." The compliment arose out of a 10-year relationship between customer and aesthetician, a longevity that testifies to Nancy's consistency. The thorough approach Nancy takes to beauty began before her spa days, when she worked as a medical professional. From inside a dermatologist's practice, she learned the intricacies of skin and how to write prescriptions for barbed-wire tattoos—one writes them with the same ink used in barbed-wire tattoos. Later on, when she opened her own spa, she was able to utilize lessons learned about the body's largest organ and the importance of personal attention to clients. At Beauty Garden Salon & Spa, Nancy meets each new client for consultations. She adapts the revelations of these meetings when designing a plan specifically for each person and their skin's many nuances.:m]]

Gazing into the mirror at Avenue Salon can be difficult, since it's so hard not to stare at the mirrors themselves. Like the benches outside, they are kaleidoscopic mosaics of chips and colors, whose vibrant, funky frames are indicative of the salon's attitude and aesthetic. So is the red racecar where toddlers sit to receive their first trim or practice their pretend parallel parking. And this aesthetic also carries through for adults as they redesign their 'dos with color treatments and straightening procedures orchestrated by the practiced hands of bilingual stylists.
Decorative tile floors, mosaic-framed mirrors, and faux marble walls welcome clients inside Hair Discovery. Situated at one of the green marble-topped workstations is Frances, a stylist with a knack for classic, precision, and razor haircuts. Frances’s other talent is using a kaleidoscope of hair dye to highlight strands, create an ombre effect, or camouflage locks for outdoorsmen and women.
