When the founder of Spasation Salon & Spa travelled to Europe and Asia in the late 1990s, he was looking for ways to improve his already bustling salon business. Instead he found inspiration in the indulgent Turkish bathhouses, prompting him to design a day spa that draws upon their ancient and sophisticated luxury and tuxedoed rubber duckies. His original concept rapidly grew into brick-and-mortar reality when he opened the flagship location of Spasation Salon & Spa in 1998. In the elegant day spa, staffers dole out haircuts and indulge clients with relaxing deep-tissue massages and signature facials amid a lavish and blissful backdrop of ceramic tile, white oak, and brushed silver.
