Whether online or in-person, Allure Beauty Lounge outfits epidermises with a slew of high-quality products. Licensed aestheticians man the brick-and-mortar boutique, where they dispel four types of facials—such as the Organic Apple Soufflé treatment, complete with hot towels and an apple-spice mask. They also smooth skin with fruit-acid chemical peels and waxing for the face and body. The team dolls up brides and prom queens for their big day, and teaches budding makeup artists all the essentials, from applying concealer to playing up their cheekbones, third eye, or lips. Online, customers can fill their electronic shopping carts with mineral eye shadow, smudge-proof mascara, and cream foundation in 19 shades.
Le gustaría un masaje? If you answered "sí," then Verde Wellness & Massage is perfect for you. If you frantically tried to remember your high-school Spanish, drew a complete blank, and became stressed thinking about how practically everyone but you is fluent in at least two languages, well, Verde is perfect for you too. Its therapists can dissolve that stress, and if you want, help you practice your español.
The team kneads away aches and releases tension with more than a dozen massage modalities. Swedish massage boosts circulation with long, flowing strokes, table Thai massage increases flexibility with assisted stretching, and Dojo sports massage relies on a special lotion to treat sore muscles. The signature massage includes extras such as aromatherapy, hot stones, and a scalp massage that proves more satisfying than repeatedly walking under trees with low-hanging branches. Verde's therapists also inject some diversity into the center's services with their slate of reflexology and chakra-balancing therapies.

Inside a dynamically designed orange-and-brown space, Chocolate For Your Body’s techs summon the skin-polishing power of cocoa when performing facials, manicures, and pedicures. They mix natural ingredients such as raw cacao, fruits, and spices to concoct revivifying elixirs that they then paint onto skin, recruiting Éminence organic skincare products to further enhance epidermises. A roster of thoughtful seasonal treatments tackles specific woes associated with each season, such as the winter-specific dry skin and temporary tattoos left by snowmen.
The staff can also crown freshly cleansed façades with permanent makeup or eyelash extensions, and they harness Wella and Schwarzkopf products for hair services, which include cuts, coloring, and conditioning treatments.
The hair artisans at Tease Salon & Spa transform limp locks into shiny and bouncy bouffants through stylish yet easily maintainable haircuts and lessons in home care. Tress pampering begins with a sudsy MoroccanOil shampoo to remove grime and dried paint, and then a luxurious, 15-minute MoroccanOil hot-oil treatment infuses strands with strength and moisture. Finally, a master stylist snips and clips strands into the client's desired shape with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by artists responsible for painting zebras' coats. Tamed tresses fall smooth and silky under the heat of a blow-dryer, transforming 'dos into magnets for coworkers' fingers.
