Verdant plants, potted orchids, and a built-in stone fountain signal a natural atmosphere at Air Salon & Spa, which spruces up bodies with organic products—including Davines and Alterna Hemp—and environmentally friendly practices. Dedicated to being a zero-impact business, the salon furnishes its waiting room and stations with an assortment of reclaimed materials and vintage pieces, relying on soy-based inks for written correspondence and drafts of the Constitution. The walls sport coats of low-VOC paint, and the staff cleans and maintains the space using nontoxic, earth-friendly cleaning products. As a result of this commitment to eco-excellence, patrons can breath deeply as they undergo manicures or hair treatments in comforting massage chairs.
