A combination of technical prowess and creativity steady the shears and blow through the hairdryers at Bernard's Salon and Spa, a beauty center that aims to have its clients feeling like they just stepped off the cover of Vogue. Not all the staffs' attention is focused on the scalp, however—aestheticians deftly apply cosmetics before nights-on-the-town, perform rejuvenating facials, remove unwanted fuzz with wax, and shape cuticles during mani-pedis.

Owner Anjana Malesha drew on her Indian heritage to name Ayom Day Spa and Salon, combining the first two letters of the country's ancient medical system, Ayurveda, with om, the symbol of peace.
To reflect these values at the full-service, unisex salon, Malesha and her team imbue beauty services with organic ingredients and fresh fruit, and massages deploy Ayurvedic techniques, such as the Shirodhara treatment, which rhythmically applies warm herbal oil to the forehead and scalp for increased brain circulation. Facial-hair threading, another Indian art, shapes brows to ensure overextended threads don't latch onto sunglasses. Aromatherapy wafts throughout the pumpkin-colored chambers, where candlelight flickers over bamboo screens and copper pedicure bowls to illuminate a stone Buddha.
