Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Like the newly coiffed clients who emerge from Evian Salon & Day Spa's front door, the bright-red chairs lining its styling floor demand attention with their vibrant, modern appearance. The salon's stylists and aestheticians craft looks that let their clients stand out from the crowd via designer haircuts and expert colors. L'Oréal, Moroccanoil, and Kerastase products help glamorize manes as stylists revamp them at stations equipped with blow-dryers that drop from the ceiling, just as they do when airplanes make emergency landings at fashion shows. Further back, in the day spa, tranquil Buddhist-inspired artwork signals a change of pace. Private treatment rooms brimming with orchid-themed images foster a sense of tranquility as aestheticians customize facials and massage therapists ease muscle tension with hot stones and aromatherapy.
