Tommi Salon and Spa welcomes guests into a “beauty heaven”, as Allure magazine dubbed it, where trained aestheticians silkify skin with efficient waxing sessions. A friendly strand eradicator’s professional-grade wax and disposable tools can deforest hair patches sprouting along the chin, across the arms, or forming Rorschach tests on the back. Bottom halves also exercise their right to smoothness as fuzz is whisked from the lower legs or bikini region. Tommi Salon and Spa’s staffers strive to orchestrate a clean and comfortable depilation, which may last from 5 to 45 minutes depending on the amount of hair and the severity of each strand’s attachment issues.
A colorful exterior sign welcomes guests into the 12,000-square-foot serenity sanctuary before they traverse a first floor bedecked in handcrafted lighting fixtures and photographs snapped by Tommi’s professional shutterbugs. The salon and spa occupies a third floor bathed in neutral tones and natural lighting beneath vaulted ceilings that complement the arias that the spa’s aestheticians sing to each client.
The three-story Tommi Studio grants patrons access to beauty treatments, a photography studio, and wedding services all under one roof. Inside the pulchritude paradise—dubbed a "beauty heaven" by Allure magazine—trained stylists dress tresses, and massage therapists melt tension from muscles with Swedish, pressure-point, or deep-tissue kneadings. Aestheticians blend treatments for custom facials and build baking-soda volcanoes at the spa lab as guests unwind with a cup of hot tea in the environmental holding area. The aesthetic experts can also coat keratin in pretty polish at one of six pedicure stations featuring aromatherapy footbaths or take advantage of the third-floor sanctuary's vaulted ceilings to amplify impromptu rap battles.
