Technicians at Barbarella Beauty greet guests with a snack and complimentary wine or coffee as they sink into Human Touch massage chairs. During pedicures, feet soak in an elegant crystal bowl and pipe-less jet whirlpool technology are designed for both comfort and cleanliness. Because the team members only service natural nails, they avoid the chemical vapors often associated with synthetic applications, so guests won't have to cringe at unpleasant odors. After feet have been citrus scrubbed or peppermint masked, the staff can finish them with a Rockstar glitter-toes look that is as dazzling as the salon's sparkly ceiling.

As their polish dries, clients can explore the boutique's selection of eye-catching jewelry and accessories. Alternatively, they can take advantage of the crew's other talents, including body waxing, facials, and haircuts performed in front of makeup mirrors that are reminiscent of a celebrity's dressing room.

Haute Tan Airbrush Tanning’s trained and certified airbrush technicians immerse skin of all hues in plumes of gentle bronzing mist. Rather than subject customers to mechanized tanning booths, their steady hands spritz skin evenly to prevent streaks and splotches. The bronzing boutique also stocks a collection of swimsuits to complement burnished bodies as they strut through sand or frolic through neighbors’ sprinklers.

Following the age-old mantra about doing one thing and doing it well, The Green Room's staff members stick almost exclusively to waxing. They use this service to sculpt brows, neaten bikini areas, and clear male torsos front to back. The only other service offered by the salon?s staff is tinting brows and lashes, both of which enhance the eyes and provide an effective disguise for getting past speakeasy grates.
