The windows themselves are constructed of individual panes of a special glass – very thick and with a unique ridged pattern. The closest match that could be found to repair the missing and broken panes came from a glass dealer in Chicago.
The work of stripping off old paint and repairing the mullions and glass panes is started earlier this week.
Baez, a Monrovia resident, has operated her salon business at that location for the past 20 years. According to a press release, the facade renovation is being undertaken in conjunction with a name chance of the salon to Xylem Salon & Spa.
"Aveda is an all-natural product line, so the name Xylem was chosen because it is the part of a plant that delivers water and nutrients from the soil to a plant’s leaves, and because the salon has embraced an eco-friendly business approach," the press release states.
