Our facility is open to the public, and clients receive hair and spa treatment services for an affordable cost.

We ensure all services are completed in a luxury, comfortable environment. The salon and spa is built with 11 spa treatment rooms along with a manicure and pedicure room. We also have reclining chairs to deliver enhanced client comfort. All our services are performed under the guidance and supervision of our licensed instructors, meaning clients can feel good knowing their treatment will run smoothly and the products used are vegan and cruelty-free.
