Booking a service

Since students are performing the services under licensed supervision, clients can find largely discounted rates compared to regular salon pricing. Owner Larissa Catapano, whose school is named after her son, Mason Anthony, ensures, “You won’t be compromising the salon experience and customer service for cheaper pricing. It’s our mission to still provide our clients with the highest quality of service, and our new campus helps make that possible.”

Clients can book a variety of facial servicesincluding microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, and chemical peels — or try a lash lift, wax, or eyebrow tint. Haircuts, colors, and styling appointments are also available as well as regular + gel manicures and pedicures. Looking for a discounted massage? Massage therapy students will be able to take clients by the end of the year.

Services can be booked online or by calling (614) 710-1025.
