Bred as half salon, half spa, Scott Talbot Salonspa overhauls men's and women's stale looks with a menu of hair, nail, and skin treatments. Armed with products by Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil, stylists enhance hair color with highlights and gray blending or break into a cutting frenzy by snipping off split ends or transforming floor-length hair into chic bobs to ward off overly aggressive princes.

Aestheticians and massage therapists guide guests into a quiet spa room for one of five specialty facials or a Swedish massage.
