The technicians at Karma Salon Spa, an Aveda Concept Salon, revivify nails with Aveda products and hues from OPI within an airy, earth-toned space. After luxuriating in a warm bath, hands lap up the spa manicure's medley of exfoliation, massage, and moisturizer before techs clip, file, and coat nails in a client-selected hue. Guests recline in burgundy massage chairs for the spa pedicure, where feet and legs bask in similar coddling, but with an additional massage and foot mask to seal in moisture and fuel cross-appendage rivalries.
As they wait, guests take in the stylish, elegant décor of the salon, bordered by olive and burnt-orange walls and speckled with faux-antique furniture. Expansive windows let in boatloads of natural light and inquisitive Peter Pans.

Karma Salon Spa
Rays of sunlight bounce off of glossy wooden floors, filling Karma Salon Spa with a peaceful energy. The staff bustles between olive and burnt-orange walls, chatting cheerily with clients and arguing with the studio's antique-style furniture.
As an Aveda Concept Salon, Karma Salon Spa uses botanically derived ideas and products. Nail techs tend to appendages draped over burgundy massage chairs, and coiffeurs man standalone styling stations. Within the salon's private rooms, aestheticians wax away unwanted hair and revive weary faces, bodies, and minds via plant peels and body treatments.
