Soothing ‘Spa Environment’ On Capitol South Steps

Sacramento, CA – ‘Welcome To Our World' (‘WOW’ to many), has become an annual tradition for California legislators in Sacramento. Hosted conveniently on the South steps of the State Capitol building, the 6th annual ‘W.O.W. event was held on Monday, April 23 and many legislators, their hard-working staffers, administration officials and cosmetology board members all found a temporary ‘spa oasis' in which to relax and rejuvenate. Guests enjoyed complimentary services and catered refreshments in a magnificent white 'spa environment' tent.

With complimentary neck-and-shoulder massages, manicures, haircuts and make-up consultations, guests got to personally experience the skills and services of the State's $6 Billion dollar beauty industry while getting informed and educated about industry issues and advancements. California's leading salon/spa pros from the local area and from around the state demonstrated the power of beauty as they helped hard working politicos to ‘de-stress' a bit at day's end.
