What makes your Spa and Salon different?
In an industry where 90% of the business models include booth renting and commission, we take pride in employing all of our service providers. Because we have an established team-based model we are able to offer clients the benefit of standardized and consistent techniques that deliver predictable results. The compensation model for this team-based system allows us to offer the very popular No Tipping policy to our clients. We like to say “do you tip your doctor, or your attorney” putting us in a class above our industry peers. Our employees have the benefit of strong compensation and educational opportunities, creating a highly systemized company that was recognized for these efforts as a Top 200 Salon in recent years.

Favorite Salon Services product you can’t live without? Why?
Davines This is a Dry Texturizer
Spray. It’s referred to by clients and our staff as “gold.” The smell alone will easily sell this top retail product, but once it is in the hair, it remains to be the best-selling product that clients continue to want us to restock. It magically converts your hair into any style you want and you can’t over use it or under use it. It can be used on all hair types and does not create residue but provides the hair texture and grit the user desires.
