Total Platinum Salon mines Columbus’s pulchritudinous population for its naturally effulgent beauty, regaling clients with the pristine hair and nails usually reserved for prickly, long-dead Egyptian queens. A women’s haircut ($30–$36) or a men's cut ($18–$20) shape amorphous head-jungles back into gender-specific gardens. If you're prepping for prom or a just-for-fun Sesame Street character effigy burning, a special-occasion style starts at $40, and a color retouching starts at $45.

The latest tanning technology and finest products await customers at Bronze Tan Studios, where high-quality beds, spray-tan booths, and a professional staff help transform sallow skin into burnished bodies.

Although the Eye Specialists of Ohio caters to personal periscopes with ophthalmology and optometry services, its aesthetic division also employs medical expertise to address epidermal concerns via a variety of services. Before the hide-healing commences, professional eyeballs will examine your cranial slipcover in a 60-minute skin evaluation designed to identify problem areas and develop a plan of action. Aging skin can relive its glamorous glory days with the 60-minute True Velvet treatment, which aims to hydrate while also promoting cellular activity by barring all microscopic Barcaloungers. The True Cashmere treatment consists of up to 60 minutes of topical exfoliation that targets acne scarring, enlarged pores, and age spots in its gritty crosshairs. Clients can also opt to clear their necks of unwanted scarves and live cats with the True Delicate treatment, which targets discoloration and evens skin's texture on the neck and décolleté. The accompanying silk-and-milk hand treatment exfoliates meat hooks before a paraffin dip seals in moisture. Check appointment availability online.
