From hair design to nailcare, the staff at Amazing Grace Beauty Salon elevate all expressions of beauty. Take, for instance, the anti-aging facial: skincare specialists lather each complexion with cleansers in order to draw out a youthful glow and minimize wrinkles.

Meanwhile, massage therapists apply Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to loosen muscles and relieve stress.

At Hidden Oasis, an international team of five stylists rely on a wealth of experience to transform clients with both classic and conceptual techniques. Using only Aveda products, they pamper patrons with hair coloring, waxes, facials, and holistic conditioning treatments. Their signature service, however, is the salon's Blow Dry Bar. Here, stylists start each appointment with a relaxing scalp massage and shampoo, followed by a luxurious blowout. The salon's decor is just as stylish as the dos that leave the Blow Dry Bar—from the brightly lit, modern styling space with its nature-inspired artwork, to the dark and calming massage rooms.

Of course, it helps that she can draw on 15 years of experience in the beauty industry to craft her healthy, holistic remedies.
