“We have two client comfort waiting areas. One is more traditional and brightly lit; the other is super cozy with a ventless gas fireplace, flat-screen TV (featuring a looped video about our salon), leather sofa, candles and dim lighting. Clients immediately feel welcomed and relaxed. Many clients apologize for remaining in the areas because they don’t get to relax like this anywhere else. ‘That, I tell them, is not a problem at all.’”
