At her Midtown salon, Nefertiti provides a calming refuge from hectic city life, viewing herself as much a "spiritual coach" as a hairstylist. Her focus is on providing natural hair care to men and women, helping clients embrace their inner beauty as much as the natural kink and curl of their hair. This holistic philosophy is evidenced throughout the entire enterprise, which features all-natural, organic products and — along with standard salon services such as massages, facials and nail care — energy balancing and shamanic healing massages.
