AQUA Salon & Spa is intended to be a complete safe space for relaxation and pampering. Our mantra is that there is "always yes", so when calling to make an appointment you will very rarely hear "no." In addition, our salon and spa are built on talent, experience, and community. You will find that AQUA Salon & Spa, kindness and familiarity are some of our top priorities and qualities. It is a home to all of us, with warm professionalism at every chair.
AQUA was opened by Brenda Dimon in 2016. Her daughter Torrie is a stylist here, as well. That sense of family is what threads the salon together so seamlessly and makes our guests feel so comfortable, relaxed, and trusting.
In addition, we are tightly committed to the best service from the minute you walk in the door, to the moment you sit down for your appointment. We are 100% dedicated to the highest quality of service, product, and experience. At AQUA, guests come first. Always.
