Romana Valji and Salima Nazir have been friends for a decade now, and Sanam's Boutique & Salon —named after Nazir's daughter—represents the blossoming of their bond since they emigrated from Pakistan in 2007. The dream began in their homes, where they designed elegant, richly embroidered shirtdresses and gowns. After a family friend announced she was having a baby and needed someone to help manage her fledgling salon, Nazir and Valji fused both businesses into the beauty haven that it is today.
In the bright front room—where lights resembling movie-set lamps spotlight mod black leather chairs—stylists use Goldwell products to create lush, long layers and glamorous blowouts. A semicircular cutout in the far wall reveals a shelf of OPI polish in the nailcare nook, where a cushy pedicure throne presides over a white table with UV lamps for curing Shellac manicures. One room in back reveals racks of Nazir and Valji's flowing, jewel-toned robes, which they encrust with floral-patterned kora and dabka according to their own taste or alter the shape, material, and color to suit their clients' wishes for elegant gowns or bespoke burlap sacks. The other chamber hides a comfortable table for massages and a diamond-microdermabrasion machine used by the staff's aesthetician in tandem with products from the Parisian skincare line Yon-Ka.

The staff upholds their desire to remain on the cutting edge of new procedures and products through hours of meticulous research, showcasing their findings by constantly updating the spa’s menu of services. Evidence of the team’s shared ambition can be found as they work their aesthetic magic in five offices everyday, removing unwanted hirsute patches via laser hair removal or expunging coffee, wine, and grass stains from grins during teeth-whitening sessions.
