Kristin Lowrey, a certified massage therapist and aromatherapist, invigorates frazzled frames with healing touches and organic products in her relaxing treatment room. A 30-minute head, neck, and back massage realigns spines curved from prematurely performed candy cane impersonations. Using various massage methodologies, such as Swedish and deep tissue, Kristin parts seas of tension, leaving muscles as relaxed as Atlas post-retirement. An herb infused salt glow body polish gently exfoliates corporeal covers, leaving behind well-moisturized skin.

The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess.

A follicular fashionista weaves the bold colors and intricate patterns of a three-piece feather extension into lackluster locks, bequeathing noggins with bursts of avian flair and the confidence of a peacock at a penguin wedding. Each 5- to 10-inch feather is affixed to hair with a silicon bead, and the process usually takes about 15 minutes. The colorful tufts can endure washing, curling, and flat-ironing and may last up to three months, or until the feathers burst into flames and reincarnate.
