The expert staff at Tangles Salon & Spa attend ongoing workshops to keep their scissors sharp and their nail files rough. Armed with Aveda products, stylists shape locks, correct color, and repair dry strands with botanical therapies preceded by soothing scalp treatments. Nail technicians dip toes into ceramic pedicure bowls brimming with fresh water and the spectacles of ceramics teachers.

At 1,200 square feet, the salon is well equipped to handle all manner of salon services, from basic haircuts and permanent waves to facials, waxing, and nailcare, all performed by enthusiastic students eager to show off their talents on real customers instead of reluctant teacher's aides.

Inside Studio Bordona’s full-service salon, a team of stylists enhances clients with high-quality products. Goldwell color transforms coifs with striking hues, and styling gels from KMS and Aquage add body and hold. Aestheticians pull from plant-based Aveda or anti-aging Bioelements skincare lines during a range of facials.
When it comes to alleviating pain, Macey swears by the art of reiki. The fourth-degree reiki master shares her knowledge during sessions designed to bring balance to the body’s chakras. Reiki eases physical pain as well as emotional ailments, such as anxiety and depression.
The seasoned staff at Lotus Salon stays continuously informed on current trends, working to outfit clients with sleek hairdos and artfully sculpted nails. During complimentary consultations, stylists take time to listen to each patron's haircare desires and dream-journal recitations, then devise personalized designs to fit varying facial shapes and skin tones. Staffers are thoroughly trained in the chemistry and intricacies of hair-color treatments, and they enlist top-quality products from brands such as Scruples and Amika to bolster the comprehensive slate of services.
In addition to mane maintenance, Lotus Salon's aestheticians refurbish busted nails during thorough manicures and pedicures, and they bronze bodies with airbrush tanning. All services are designed to enlighten clients on the tools, skills, and Cartesian philosophies necessary to re-create looks at home. Mirrors embedded into dark wooden frames complement Lotus Salon's earth-tone palette, and cushy leather chairs wait to cradle guests.
