Salon with a View

Con­struc­tion is mov­ing along smoothly & the move date is approach­ing fast. We are very excited!

Steam Pod

The steam Pod is a high tech­nol­ogy steam straight­en­ing iron that releases a con­tin­u­ous flow of high pres­sure steam. The steam heats up hair pro­gres­sively, pre­vent­ing heat dam­age while cre­at­ing a pol­ished, blow-​​dry, last­ing finish.

Torlen Mini

Use at home or on-​​the-​​go for pre­ci­sion touch-​​ups and speedy styling.
