A diverse staff of hair specialists and an aesthetician helps About U Salon beautify bodies with meticulous attention. Many staff members have decades of experience in the industry, which they use to clear skin with specialized facials and waxing sessions, as well as add depth to hair with highlights that mimic thin rivulets of rain on the solitary window of life. All services are performed with high-end products from brands such as Paul Mitchell, Mantra, and Joico.
The stylists at Mitchell's Salon & Day Spa have beautified Cincinnati-area clients for the past 30 years. During that time, the staff has grown to more than 400 employees across five locations. They've also garnered several press mentions, including their most recent victory in The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013. These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.

They flaunt their skills alongside resident aestheticians, who further enhance physiques with waxing, makeup applications, airbrush tanning, and mani-pedis that utilize OPI and Creative Nail Design polishes.
