At Michael Thomas Salon, muted yellow walls exude a warm glow reflected in the friendly demeanors of skin-savvy aestheticians and stylists specializing in hair color. Tress tamers revamp outdated hairdos with services that include cutting and coloring, as well as a modern re-texturizing technique that ousts frizz without unrolling curls or forcing brushes to work unpaid overtime. For skin, facials, waxing, and makeup unearth photo-ready kissers, with an ultra-gentle peel harnessing the doting powers of Aveda's All Sensitive products. Beautification unfolds in an airy space with weathered hardwood floors and a high bar where waiting patrons can riffle through magazines or practice sliding empty steins without breaking them.
Local brides. Teens getting ready for formals. President Obama. What seems like an unlikely grouping has something in common: they've all turned to Radura for makeup services. With a cosmetic client list that includes the president, Arianna Huffington, and a slew of other politicians and pundits who Radura’s artists have prepped for the likes of HBO, FOX, and CNN, it's no wonder guests turn to the salon for makeup artistry and instruction. Massages, waxing, and facials also spoil spa-goers, giving them an idea of what it’s like to be Steven Seagal for a day. Hair and nail services—including mani-pedis that use sea salt or no-chip nail polish—keep guests glittering from scalp to toes.
Zeba Beauty's highly trained staff specializes in services that tame unruly facial fuzz and beautify clients' façades, including eyebrow threading, henna tattooing, and eyelash-extending. Using a medical-grade adhesive, the technicians will meticulously apply semi-permanent extensions to each lash, imbuing them with extra length, thickness, and flirtability. The one-by-one attachment process results in a new set of butterfly kissers that maintain a natural look and cause nearby eyebrows to migrate to cheekbones in a jealous fury. With careful maintenance, the longer-than-life lashes can last from two to four weeks, or until a high-powered blink launches them into the cosmos.
Sun Tan City's specially designed devices bathe bodies in an even, bronze glow. The tanning beds ($9–$34) apply a delicate balance of UVA and UVB rays to create the fun-in-the-sun look, with varying session durations depending on the bed's level of intensity—fast, faster, fastest, or instant. The VersaSpa Sunless Tanning System ($34) can provide a natural, even-tonal transformation without the use of UV rays. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, which will then be combined with an anti-aging moisturizing skin treatment. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy treatment and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. Finally, after a few minutes in the comfort air-dry system, your body will be dry to the touch.
Madeline, better known as Maddy around The Skin Renewal Studio, has worked as a certified massage therapist and aesthetician since 1982. Her decades of experience with skin- and bodycare become obvious as she unfurls a range of beauty and massage services for clients. She uses bioelectric rejuvenation to erase fine lines and contour the skin during nonsurgical face-lifts; waxes unwanted hair from the face and body; and alleviates aches, pains, and stress with soothing deep-tissue, Swedish, and raindrop-therapy massage treatments.
Despite excelling in the world of beauty and massage therapy, Maddy has proudly declined to park herself on her laurels. Currently training to become a personal coach, she hopes to help clients cultivate a sense of inner strength by realizing what she’s known all along: beauty starts from the inside, but that doesn’t mean you should swallow makeup. Her studio even symbolizes this notion. The interior drips with aesthetic splendor in the form of hardwood floors, dark wooden tables, plush salmon-colored chairs, intricately patterned rugs, and plants and flowers.

The newly remodeled Hot Heads Salon is a chic, urban oasis where stylists and nail technicians refresh bodies with custom treatments. Dark-blue hues and exposed-brick walls define the space, giving clients a sense of calm as stylists enliven locks with Pureology products, Coppola’s Keratin Complex treatments, and hair extensions that make Rapunzel’s hairstyle seem like a poor excuse for a buzzcut. The salon’s nail technicians also beautify bodies, decorating toes and tips with acrylic coverings and long-lasting gel polish from OPI and other high-end brands.
