A team of master stylists, aestheticians, spray tan artists, and extension specialists bustle around Bliss Hair Studio, working to live up to their name and provide clients with a blissful experience. To that end, this full-service salon and beauty spot offers on-trend hair services, from precision haircuts to color treatments and formal updos, powered by products from brands such as Pureology and Redken. Clients can have unwanted hair removed in a private waxing area, toes touched up during a spa pedicure, faces soothed with a detox facial, muscles unwound with a massage, or skin sun-kissed with a custom airbrush spray tanning session.
Eterna MedSpa's dedicated staff of doctors and beauty specialists provides clients with an array of customized, medically-based services. The treatment will begin with a skin consultation in which an experienced face mechanic checks epidermises for compatibility with the treatment and worn down fanbelts causing nasolabial folds to squeak with every smile. Faces continue to garner attention with the dermaplaning service (a $100 value), which exfoliates dead skin cells lounging along the outer layers of the skin. Utilizing a sharp blade and a steady hand, the pain-free process is designed to shave off dull skin cells and fine hairs while requiring no downtime. To complement newly silkified complexions, skull blankets are finished with a sunscreen application infused with liquefied compliments on your newly glowing visage.
The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.

Zip Fitness's staff strives to keep intimidation from creeping in to each of the five gyms. To welcome all exercisers—even those who have never had gym memberships before—Gym Geniuses stroll through each location donning bright-red shirts that signal their availability to help guests operate the various machines and guide them in drafting fitness goals and coming up with routines for the day. They've stocked each location with strength equipment from brands such as Precor and Life Fitness, and a guided strength circuit's 30-minute full-body workout takes the guesswork out of toning physiques. Rows of cardio equipment include treadmills, ellipticals, and upright and recumbent bikes, along with rowing machines and StairMaster step mills. For stretching and ab work, bands, balls, and body bars abound, and free weights include dumbbells, barbells, and tamed school bells.
Gold memberships unlock additional perks, such as unlimited access to Hex II tanning booths and the ActivTrax online fitness and nutrition coach, which plots out workouts and offers nutrition tools tailored to each user's goals, from slimming down to having the flexibility to comb your hair with your feet.
