Salon Paz borrows its name from the Spanish word for peace, which is exactly what the staff hopes to bring to the customers who enter into the relaxing, sage-green space. After admiring the salon's artwork––which is all created by the staff––clients settle in to plush, chocolate-colored styling chairs to put their strands in the hands of seasoned stylists or put their feet up to enjoy the soothing massage that accompanies each pedicure. They'll also enjoy peace-of-mind knowing the salon reaches for high-quality shampoos and conditioners from Paul Mitchell and complexion-clearing skincare products by Keyano. They also use all-vegan hair color by Pravana, which are free of sulfates, sulfites, and parabens, and are never tested on animals, no matter how much they beg.
