The locally-owned, full-service Aveda Lifestyle Salon & Spa has been a popular destination for kama‘aina and visitors at Ala Moana Center for over 6 years.

Honolulu, HI – HO‘ĀLA SALON & SPA (“Ho‘āla”), the popular, award-winning full-service Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa at Ala Moana Center, is pleased to announce that it will be opening a second location at Ka Makana Ali‘i in Kapolei in Fall 2016.

Owner Lititia Thomas said the new location is approximately 1,800 square feet and will offer the same services as their larger Ala Moana location, and include ten salon chairs, two spa treatment rooms, a nail salon, and the full line of plant-derived Aveda products in their retail area. Thomas is also proud to be working with local designers from Philpotts Interiors to create a chic and sophisticated, nature-inspired space which perfectly complements the Ho‘āla brand.

“We are very excited about opening our second Ho‘āla at the beautiful new Ka Makana Ali‘i this year.  We felt the quality of the project, the tenants and the location were the best match for us.

We know the market well and are looking forward to bringing our special brand of care and luxury services to the families and visitors of West O‘ahu that have brought us our loyal following and numerous awards over the past six years. ” said Thomas, a West O‘ahu resident.

All Ho‘āla salon and spa services are performed by a highly trained and dedicated team of licensed professionals using Aveda products, exclusively,” added Thomas. Our goal with each and every guest is to have them feel beautiful, healthy, appreciated, and empowered after their visit. In addition, we continually strive to maintain a beautiful facility and incorporate wellness into each guest experience, and also share Aveda’s mission to care for our environment.”

Thomas will soon be hiring for the Ka Makana Ali‘i location. Those interested in applying for salon, spa, nail salon and retail team member positions may send a resume and cover letter to lthomas@hoalasalonspa.com with “I want to join the team at KMA” in the subject line.
