After rubbing elbows with talented experts, Krista Curry became the creative director of Textures Salon. Now she pours 20 years of experience into her team of stylists, who sculpt tresses with products by Redken and American Crew. Before beginning any of their services––which range from cuts and color to keratin treatments and bridal up-dos––they welcome men, women, and children into their orange, box-shaped styling chairs and warn them not to touch the shiny red eject button.
Although they both hail from the Mediterranean, pizza and falafel don't often appear on the same menu. Diners at Rome's Pizza, however, might be prompted to wonder why—it turns out it's quite possible for one kitchen to carry both dishes off nicely. In a 2004 review, the Current's Alejandro Pérez praised the pesto pizza's "light, crispy crust and full-bodied flavor" and the falafel sandwich's "hot, crisp patties."
This juxtaposition isn't the only surprise on the extensive menu. Sure, you can get red sauce and pepperoni atop your pie, but Rome's specializes in white pizzas slicked with olive oil, herbs, and smoked garlic. Strombolis and calzones fold in on themselves to make for a hearty meal or a high-powered alternative to a water balloon, and sandwiches and pasta display the same love of big portions and off-the-beaten-path ingredients. On the Mediterranean side of the menu, there are also staples such as dolmas, hummus, and gyros.
Owner Shaune Haas and the team at Bang Salon & Day Spa are always looking to stay up on modern beauty trends, which is why their menu has recently expanded to include color services with Paul Mitchell's new ammonia-free formulas, and lash extensions that range from natural to dramatic looks. The salon's sunless tanning services are contemporary as well, using Norvell's organic airbrush formulas, which are cruelty-free and infused with anti-aging antioxidants. Bang Salon also offers skin treatments, ranging from the acne-fighting Deep Cleanse to the anti-aging Cyto-Luxe facial, using pharmaceutical-grade gloTherapeutics products for results-oriented skincare. Of course, you can still get a good, trendy cut and color here?Bang's stylists are more than capable of updating your look with ombre color, extensions, or a keratin smoothing treatment that was flown in from the future.
Koko FitClub’s innovative technology imparts the benefits of a personal trainer without any of the drawbacks, such as scheduling conflicts, steep prices, and handshake obligations. Digital keys help patrons to unlock their custom training plans, which are displayed on a fleet of cardio and strength-training machinery. First, clients elect one of Koko’s exercise tracks—including weight loss, pain relief, and muscle building—so computers can design personalized routines based on individual goals, measurements, and starting fitness levels. Plans transfer from the computer to a Koko Key, which, like a USB drive or a desktop wallpaper of a guard dog, safeguards digital documents. The key fits into each of Koko FitClub’s cardio and strength-training machines, which display the number of reps or intensity of intervals needed and how to tweak any off-kilter techniques. Each 30-minute workout presents a fresh routine to keep minds engaged while clients blast through traditional exercise plateaus.
