Dynese M. Hess, a certified acne specialist, massage therapist, and aesthetician, combines her 25 years of experience with medical-grade skincare products to cleanse and clear complexions in customized facial treatments. During a custom Classique Essential facial, Dynese steams, cleanses, and polishes weary mugs before evicting freeloading grime from pores during extractions. While aromatherapy stimulates olfactory glands and nimble fingers knead out shoulder, neck, and décolleté aches, troubled frontispieces soak in the mollifying benefits of a customized facial mask, leaving skin as energized and refreshed as a mug of hot coffee after its morning bath. Alternatively, Dynese reins in out-of-control blemishes with prescription-free, clinical-therapy acne treatments for guests suffering from acne grades I to IV. Dynese will perform a skin analysis and collect intelligence on backgrounds, lifestyles, and espionage agents in order to apply the appropriate treatment and to propose a home-care regimen.
Flanked by bright-red walls, stylist Jillian Marker trims and transforms hair, adds depth with color, or infuses dry locks with hydration. Alongside Jillian, the savvy styling staff at Vanity Chair Beauty Salon inspires outer beauty with a gamut of salon and facial services. Aesthetician Alexie Rae Francisco-Siu tends to skin surfaces with facials that brighten tones and correct imperfections. Amid the soothing sage colors of the spa room, a waxing wrangler can lift away unwanted hair, shape brows, or remove improperly placed googly eyes.
A believer in natural skincare, aesthetician Rani of Rani’s Organic Facials and Threading shudders when she reads the unpronounceable ingredients inside many skin products. That’s why she sidesteps harsh chemicals altogether and relies on all-organic ingredients for her chocolate facials, salt glow back treatments, and fruit facial bleaches.
Rani’s belief in natural spa services extends to facial hair removal, which she performs with pure cotton thread. Drawing on 20 years of threading mastery, she deftly sweeps across upper lips, chins, and eyebrows. Through her efforts, Rani gently removes hair while keeping irritation to a minimum, unlike when metal bands play libraries or crowd members read sonnets at metal concerts.

Hair at the Ritz’s stylists join the long-enduring battle to tame wild strands with a one-two combo of frizz-fighting treatments. Clients tired of chasing flyaway strands on a daily basis yield their locks to the Keratin Complex hair-therapy system or the Zerran RealLisse vegan formula, which is packed with wheat, corn, and other crops imported from the moon. Both treatments straighten kinks, enhance shine, and block frizz for months.
Although smoothing topsy-turvy tresses is one of Hair at the Ritz's specialties, the salon can handle far more than a few disobedient curls. Stylists knowledgeable on the latest beauty trends cut, color, and style hairdos for men, women, and children, reimagining manes with the help of Enjoy, Moroccanoil, and Matrix products. Nail technicians, meanwhile, buff and polish fingers and toes, and aestheticians remove unwanted hair with warm wax. Hair at the Ritz’s team also puts the finishing touches on outer appearances with hair extensions, henna tattoos, and even permanent makeup.
