While clients are being pampered, music swirls through the main rooms of the upbeat salon, and private treatment rooms provide seclusion for facial waxing. Romantic crystal fixtures send prisms of light across blue and violet walls, accented by inspirational messages such as "You look gorgeous" and "Your SAT score does not define you."
