Lotus Beauty follows the intertwined lives of five multigenerational women, inviting you into Reita’s salon where clients can wax lyrical about their day’s tiny successes or have their struggles massaged, plucked or tweezed away.
But with honest truths and sharp-witted barbs high among the treatments on offer, will the power of community be enough to raise the spirits of everyone who passes through the salon doors?
“Women come, women go. We pamper them, preen them, make them beautiful. Make small talk. Never know what’s really under their skin.”
