A custom-built color bar includes USB ports and outlet plug-ins so clients can stay connected during their services.

Owner’s comment: “When clients are escorted to the shampoo area, they are taken through doors that are more than 100 years old and into a calm, dark room with five Yume salon chairs. Clients lay flat while the stylists take them on a sensory journey of scalp massage, hand massage and a peppermint oil and hot towel treatment.”
