Que Blankenship, owner of Plush Hair Lounge, keeps her eye on a wide variety of sources for inspiration, from couture catwalks to classic starlets to edgy urban settings. Whatever the look, she works to make it accessible to her clients' lifestyles by selecting flattering hues, enhancing the hair?s natural motion with cuts, and sculpting styles that stay sultry with little attention. Before stylists begin any treatment, they make good on the promise implicit in Plush Hair Lounge?s name by providing customers with a complimentary glass of wine and a scalp massage whose motions mimic the brain waves produced by dreams about cuddling a cloud. When Que and her staff aren't subduing frizz with keratin treatments, lengthening locks with extensions, or crafting special-occasion updos for proms and weddings, they teach clients how to keep their hair healthy with at-home regimens.
Under the leadership of founder Christie Shumate, the licensed aestheticians at Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center perform custom skin treatments with detailed analysis. Shumate was inspired to form Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center after paying a visit to a plastic surgeon who, she discovered, donated his summer months to helping those who couldn't otherwise afford treatment to recover from burns, as well as working with children who were born with facial defects. She brought together a collection of less-risky aesthetic services designed to help her clients look and feel good about themselves, and now her staff offers laser cellulite reduction, custom facials, organic chemical peels, ear candling, and aqua foot detox.
Technology gives an extra kick to the spa services estheticians perform at A Little Skin Studio. In addition to the Clayton Shagal products they use during 12 kinds of facials, they rely on LED light therapy and microcurrent tightening to fight acne and signs of aging. Unlike people who have been beaten senseless with scepters, the studio?s not afraid of a little flair; treatment rooms bear funky zebra-print rugs.
Nature’s Spa and Wellness offers an array of massages, body-wrap and scrub treatments, and facial and waxing services, administered by a talented staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians. A 60-minute Swedish massage ($80) repeatedly pats one on the back, and a tender-touch facial ($65), which uses Dermalogica and Eminence skincare products, cleanses, exfoliates, moisturizes, and glowifies faces. For de-furring, wax brows ($15), chest ($50), a full leg and bikini ($80), and more. If allergies or too many nights spent drinking whole cashews have clogged your inner well-being, go for the popular ultimate-detox body wrap ($140). A lymphatic-draining brush will prepare the skin for mineral cleansing before an herbal mud is applied and the skin is cocooned in a heat-holding wrap. Finally, a massage flushes out negative byproducts, leaving your body clear. This 105-minute treatment includes the spa tub, dry sauna, and detox tea.

City Barbers' friendly staff at Uptown and Highland Creek specializes in the shearing, shaving, and four-part harmony expected of an authentic, old-time haircuttery, while using technology and sports to lure the most modern of men. Each workstation is equipped with its own flat-screen TV and comfortable black-leather chair, making it easy for clients to imagine what it'd be like getting a professional-quality haircut at home. The haircut will be performed by a skilled pair of scissors wielded by a skilled hand, then topped off with a complimentary straight-razor neck shave that will leave your skin feeling as smooth as a well-oiled fire truck.
