Salon Ivy's skilled stylists offer a bevy of hair-care services, cultivating and harvesting men's and women's headtop fields. Women can prep for a fancy dinner or fancy dinnertime-fancytime with a shampoo and style ($30), or update their look entirely with a basic cut and style ($45) and all-over hair color ($65+). Men can blend in with younger men with a camouflage color ($30+), which refreshes fading hair tones, or keep locks from lingering in front of eyes with a basic cut and style ($30). All haircuts take place in private rooms, allowing the utmost individualized attention while the stylist focuses on one head only. Other services include waxing, makeup application, and extensions. For all of Salon Ivy's pampering procedures, only the highest-quality products—among them Schwarzkopf, Pureology, Moroccan Oil, and Viva Curl—are used.

Artful nails may take center stage at Hot Tips, but that doesn't mean they get all the attention. When they aren't busy creating custom nail designs or applying acrylic tips, the shop's aestheticians ten to the rest of the body's beauty needs. After waxing away stubble from the brows, underarms, legs, or back, they help customers show off newly smooth contours by steering them toward a sunless spray tanning system that hydrates as it bronzes. Lashes and brows may be tinted to match a new hair color or to convince strangers that you really are a natural blue-nette, while trained technicians can also apply single synthetic lashes to give lend an added dose of drama to every wink.

Urban Zen Yoga Studio helps gym-goers hone their flexibility, mental clarity, and core strength with a slew of yoga classes. In basic yoga classes, students nail down alignment, breath control, and postures, many of which can be performed with variations. Then, they can move onto more challenging styles, such as hot Vinyasa. In a studio set to 95 degrees––or about 308 Kelvin––they follow a tough series of poses inspired by Bikram, ashtanga, and kundalini yoga.
