Housed inside a rustic brick building in downtown Tacoma, a trio of stylists—Mia, Missy, and Amber—sling L'Oréal products as they cut, color, and alter the texture of clients' hair. Meanwhile, in private treatment rooms enveloped in warm earthy tones, massage therapist Abrah calls upon custom techniques and hot stones to break apart stress and assuage muscle pains. The salon's aesthetician, Kylee, also works in the private treatment rooms to pump up lashes with synthetic extensions and strip away surplus fuzz with waxing treatments for the face, full body, and dorsal fin.
If not for a display case brimming with products for hair and skin, one might confuse the welcoming L'Oréal salon for a friend's posh home. The ebullient space boasts comfortable living-room furniture and delicate chandeliers flanked by lilac wall hues and wood trim.
