Like a loaf of bread in a space shuttle with a broken sunroof, hairstyles can grow stale between salon visits. A 45-minute coif-cultivation session, in which the stylist takes into account face shape and lifestyle, energizes follicles and forges a salon-fresh look. In the one-hour Dermalogica facial, an aesthetic augur examines skin in order to customize a course of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing session with Dermalogica products.

Maggie Rose isn't just a nail artist. She's an artist, period. Ever since she was in kindergarten, she's been drawing, painting, and sculpting ceramics on every available surface, including ceilings on Opposite Day. Nail art is just the latest medium she's conquered?and despite the common phrase "painting your nails," she actually views the process as more akin to ceramincs. At Joanelly Beauty Gallery, she sculpts nails, paints them, and even adorns them with accessories. That is, after she pampers them hot towels, moisturizing salves, and paraffin treatments.
