Gemini Beauty Lounge & Boutique's full suite of beautifying services sends people home looking like a completely new version of themselves. The staff includes stylists who specialize in color services, as well as creating edgy, modern hairstyles. After the stylists sculpt the hair clients want, a licensed Electrologist can remove the hair they don't. Gemini's nail techs scrub or colorize digits with long-lasting coats of shellac. The salon's massage therapists treat the rest of the body with body wraps and massage, while aestheticians treat the skin with facials. Visitors even get a chance to swap out their wardrobe before heading home with a quick visit to the boutique, where they can transform their appearance with new clothing, jewelry, and designer lotions.

With a staff of stylists and aestheticians from all different backgrounds and ethnicities, Diverse Salon really knows something about handling all colors and types of hair and skin. The stylists can do everything from a wash, press, and curl to weaves, extensions, and braiding. The aestheticians rely on skincare consultations to ensure they use the correct G.M. Collin products during European and collagen-renewing facials. And Tiffanie, the onsite nail expert, can help clients choose the regular or shellac polish that looks best with their skin tone.
Angela’s Salon & Boutique’s stylists have garnered a base of loyal regulars thanks to their commitment to maintaining their customers’ comfort and privacy from the moment they walk through the salon doors. The coiffeurs regularly hone their skills with ongoing training, ensuring that their menu of services features trendy treatments such as MoroccanOil hair masks alongside timeless salon staples including hair extensions. Throughout the day, staffers can be found buzzing about their styling stations, gilding strands with multidimensional highlights or wrangling drooping locks and thought bubbles into elegant updos. The team complements its hair-ameliorating services with treatments such as airbrush makeup applications, facial waxing, and eyelash extensions.
At Just Perfect Threading & Salon, many customers are left wondering how they hadn’t tried out threading earlier. After all, unlike waxing treatments, threading doesn’t cause the delicate skin around the eye to wrinkle. The skin-friendliness of threading is only one of the benefits of this ancient Eastern technique practiced here, where trained aestheticians loop and pull out rows of hair to skillfully shape eyebrows and swiftly remove unwanted hair from the face and body. Much like the world’s most accomplished marlin fishermen, the only tools these aestheticians use are a cotton string and a trained eye. They also accent newly smooth skin with henna tattoos, adding a fun, temporary design to hands, feet, or your skin area of choice.
Dedicated exclusively to hair design, 227CRUZ offers any service pertaining to tresses. The staff relies on professional products from Redken and other top brands to fortify single-process color treatments and subtle ombre highlights. They also offer styling for men, using name brand serums to put the finishing touches on sharp, contemporary cuts. After a cut or color service, clients can opt to have their hair simply and elegantly styled, or request special treatment, such as flat-iron work or an updo.
Melanie at Krush Salon is part of a team of 26 experienced hair stylists. She and her colleagues use products by brands such as Unite, Kevin Murphy, and L'Oréal to bring out the natural beauty of their clients. They can achieve such results through ombré hair treatments, waxing or chemical peels for the skin, and deep-tissue or Swedish massages for tense muscles.
