Salon 1500's dedicated stylists perfect coiffures with an array of salon treatments that use high-quality haircare products from brands such as Bumble and bumble and Eufora. A stylist consults with you and your locks to create the most flattering head curtain and seals in shine with a glossing with deep-conditioning treatment that leaves locks as luminous and hydrated as a sports-drink spokeswoman. After a Bumble blow-dry sets styles, clients can practice poststyling struts in Salon 1500's boutique or confuse other patrons by cat-walking circles around the waiting room's wicker chairs.
Artist AJ Whitney powers his tattoo machine with five years of inking experience and a passion for his craft. From his imagination and from photographs supplied by his clients, Whitney has adorned bodies with crisp scrollwork, colorful depictions of animals, and personal symbols of faith.
Revelations Tattoo's clean and welcoming environment dispels perceptions of thuggish tattoo culture, with its sarcastic longshoremen and rebellious warlocks. Whitney embellishes arms, legs, and backs with an emphasis on safety and hygiene, opening a new set of disposable tubes and needles in front of every client.

The second her clients walk through the door, Ana strives to give them the most relaxing experience possible by delivering meticulously preformed nail services with a personal and friendly approach. Her manicures and pedicures are executed with some of the industry's most popular products, such as OPI nail polish and CND Shellac's long-wearing gel-formula lacquer. Patrons on the go can beautify their tips with Ana's basic mani-pedi, which includes nail shaping, a light massage, and polish. More leisurely clients or retired vacuum salesmen can indulge in a more extravagant treatment, such as hot-stone massage therapy, a moisturizing foot mask, or a refreshing scrub.
Julianna and Thomas, the artists at Overground Tattoo, merge their individual expertise and artistic influences to create inimitable body art for their clients. Julianna’s steady hands have emblazoned clients with such images as a bespectacled owl with textured yellow wings, whereas Thomas has scripted skin with names, flowers, and inspirational phrases such as Love Your Life and Chew Before You Swallow. After augmenting their clients’ exteriors with tattoos and permanent makeup, the duo arms them with pertinent aftercare tips, such as washing tattoos with antimicrobial soap or not exposing them to the sun lest the sun jealously copies them.
