Owner Yavonda Van Dyke––a licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist––is also a certified educator who, when not busy keeping her staff abreast of the latest practices and styles, waxes beautific to the public during advanced-education classes. Visitors stepping into her full-service salon are greeted by cosmetologists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and manicurists, who work side by side to pamper bodies from fingertip to fascia. After arising from a full body Swedish or deep-tissue massage, clients can hop into the styling chair to relax stressed strands with Japanese hair straightening or an intense conditioning treatment. Old nail polish is swiftly swapped out for French tips or artificial overlays during mani-pedis that may be made extra indulgent with skin-softening paraffin treatments, while facials for ladies, gents, and teens help rekindle glowing complexions by removing dirt, oil, and stuck Halloween masks.
