From within Shimmer Hair Salon, stylist Melissa Wright acts as a magician of sorts. As her clients sit in chairs, transformations occur before their very eyes?from dull hues that turn multi-dimensional to frizzy tresses that become shiny and smooth. It's not a sleight of hand that renders these looks, however; it comes from high-quality Aveda products and a stylist who excels at her craft.

Stylists at Elite Edge Hair Salon cut and color the manes of male and female clients, realizing the style goals laid out in a complimentary personal consultation. Behind their sleek leather styling chairs, stylists carefully weave So.Cap hair extensions in more than 81 different colors and three different textures, which last for up to six months. They also coat unruly strands with keratin straightening treatments, which work to keep hair as smooth as the freestyle raps of an audiobook narrator.

After graduating from the University of Aesthetics, Lisa founded her spa with the goal of tailoring each treatment to each client's needs. Lisa specializes in facials, but guests can also treat themselves to medical aesthetics, waxing treatments, and personalized service.

Advanced facials use steam, custom masks, and deep cleansings to thwart acne and tone complexions, while others take a more clinical approach with face-lifting enzymes and peels. Men's mugs are treated to A Quickie and the Skin Tune Up, which trues the wheels inside pores. The corrective back facial combines a massage with a pore-clearing bout of steam-assisted extractions.

Staffers use both hard and soft wax to depilate brows, legs, and unremovable toupees. The team is serious about hygiene: their 10 Commandments of Waxing include never double dip, never recycle wax, and always wear gloves. Packages, such as the three-hour, champagne-inclusive couples retreat, combine massages and facials with extra mood-bolstering scents and treatments.
