The word yaax literally means ceiba tree in Mayan, but it represents the Tree of Life. At Yaax Salon & Spa, owner Claudeth Garcia and her staff embody its name through wellness treatments aimed at achieving inner balance and outer balance with nature. The staff is so committed to nurturing healthy tresses that they custom hand mix many of their hair products chairside using a carefully selected mélange of organic ingredients. The now-worldwide salon got its start in trendy Seoul, where a progressive approach to Yaax's hair, skin, and nail treatments keeps the inviting salon free of harmful, unpleasant odors produced by artificial fragrances and formaldehyde.
Men and women both get the royal treatment in the salon chair at Yaax Salon & Spa. With training from acclaimed salons ranging from Vidal Sassoon to Toni&Guy, Yaxx's staff is well-equipped to revamp locks with chic cuts and gentle color serums by Organic Color Systems. Stylists also zap frizz with zero-formaldehyde keratin and japanese straightening treatments, which can last up to 12 months.
