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. The treatment leaves skin impeccable, like a recently buffed and oiled slab of marble.

At Roosters, gents maintain time-tested headscapes within a haircut haven reminiscent of an old-fashioned barbershop.

Unearth neglected jawbones with the signature seven-step facial shave, in which facial experts employ hot-steam towels, a deep-cleansing facial massage, moisturizing lotions, and a smooth shave to leave cheeks as smooth and chiseled as Michelangelo's David after a moss removal.
