The independent stylists at Main Place Salon usher clients into a sun-filled studio where leafy houseplants are flanked by inset lighting above and sleek hardwood floors below. Within these relaxing confines, heads bask in the attentive services of industry veterans, who harness their decades of experience to bestow cuts, color, and style designs to match the latest trends or the neighbor's couture shrubbery. Each of the staff members enjoys the salon's liberating perks—such as setting their own schedules and vacation time—which allows them to fully enjoy their work and in turn happily create new looks for their clients.
Polish bottles in reds, yellows, pinks, and blues stretch across the mint hued walls like a rainbow, providing fitting decoration as skilled nail technicians deftly shape nail shields to an eye-catching symmetry. Clients can also request specialty nail art in intricate designs such as hearts, stars, or Picasso-esque representations of Lounge owner Anna Batkhuu.
The staff at Spa Soma treats clients with a varied menu of aesthetic, weight-loss, and medical beauty services. They work to pair a gentle, warm environment with high-quality medical treatments, such as laser hair removal. They also offer seven different types of massage, dispelling the notion that beauty procedures backed by scientific research must be performed in a cold, sterile environment devoid of human life. These effective treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injectables, and dermal fillers, which reduce telltale signs of age, such as wrinkles or tattoos written in Sanskrit.
A full-service salon complements the center's aesthetic medical services. Here, staff members perform customized haircuts and clip nails during express and spa mani-pedis.
