The comely lady stylists of Barber Dollz brush up on the latest haircutting trends to ensure both male and female clients receive the most innovative techniques and creative colors when they hit the chair. The stylists?called Dollz?boast a staggering repertoire of haircutting skills and are able to shear up outrageous styles such as leopard spots as well as sexy understated cuts including classic bobs. The Dollz begin a style makeover with a massaging shampoo and conditioning and can enhance gentlemen's appointments with a hot-towel treatment and nape shave. Those opting for color or highlights can have their manes analyzed by stylists to ensure that hair can endure the hue-changing process. Clients receive complimentary beverages during appointments, and they can pass some time before and afterward watching flat-screen TVs on the salon's wraparound couch or playing a game of foosball.
Friendly, clean, and educational. These tend not to be the first words that come to mind when thinking about a tattoo shop, but at the Allegory Tattoo, owner Pete Walker and his team, that includes Ronan and Steve, ensure clients' experiences go above and beyond their expectations. The team not only provides clients with current portfolios of each trained tattoo artist's work but also encourages guests to watch the tattooist of choice in action. Each friendly artist is keen on collaboration to ensure the image??whether brought in, chosen from the shop's collection, or conceptually rendered by the artist??reflects the patron's personality and style. Tattoos are normally crafted in one-hour sessions and during multiple visits.
Owner and tattoo artist Pete's past pieces have included a portrait of Betty White, colorful koi fish, and realistic flowers, whereas tattoo artist Steve's portfolio is lined with tattoos of a unicorn, flowers and crosses, and geometric designs. Ample parking is available, and discounts are given to those in the military.

The gentle stroke of a brush. The artistic flourish of ink. As an award-winning Chinese calligrapher during her childhood, the owner of Faces Plus Skin Spa learned how to control her hands, a skill that she has seamlessly transitioned into her work as an aesthetician for the past 20 years. Now, the owner and another experienced aesthetician?who received advanced training in Paris, Milan, and Hong Kong?use their skills to restore complexions with exfoliating chemical peels, seasonal, antioxidant-rich facials, and permanent-makeup applications. The duo customizes each service, educating spa-goers on proper skincare regimens and using natural and organic products to help complexions glow brighter than a sun-powered campfire. Faces Plus also provides advanced beauty services such as the photorejuvenation treatment, which relies on a combination of LumiFacial therapy, crystal microdermabrasion, and light energy to erase fine lines and hyperpigmentation.
Inside Enchanted Nails, digits receive the royal treatment as experienced technician Trish Pillow applies her finely honed nail-pampering skills and a line of high-end OPI, Essie, and Creative Nail Design polishes. Additionally, clients and indulgent agoraphobics can obtain pristine jazz hands and feet from the comforts of home during diva parties.
When Pamela Troyan opened Salon Secrets Spa in 1993, she set out with a clear goal: to provide clients with a refuge from their daily pressures via the best possible salon and spa experience. She staffed her salon with highly trained stylists and technicians, many of whom studied at elite academies such as Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and Aveda. She also enrolled Salon Secrets Spa as a certified Aveda Signature Salon, meaning that all of their services (except nail coloring) would employ all-natural, organic Aveda products. With the salon fully staffed and stocked with elite stylists and luxe products, it was time to open. Since then, not much has changed: Pamela still oversees a team of well-educated stylists and technicians who’ve developed a loyal following of repeat customers and amateur paparazzi. Stylists customize looks with organic Aveda color services, as well as mani-peds, paraffin treatments, waxing, and Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions. The spa staff soothes bodies with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion, as well as massages and body wraps. The med spa also beautifies patients with cosmetic services such as skin rejuvanation, VelaShape cellulite reduction, and spider-vein treatments performed or supervised by a certified plastic surgeon.
