The sage green walls of Harriman Salon and Spa provide a tranquil ambiance for indulging worthy finger and toe covers. Knowledgeable nail technicians guide patrons into the separate mani-pedi room, where hands and feet can soak serenely, free from the incessant chatter of curling irons known to inhabit the main salon. Manicures begin with a nail shaping, filing, and cuticle conditioning, before Harriman's digit experts coat the keratin in a fetching hue. Pamper paws with a colorful pedicure, which includes a foot soak, softening scrub, and cuticle and nail trim that help erase memories of years spent playing cricket in espadrilles. Groupon holders can choose to upgrade to a French or shellac mani-pedi for an additional fee.
At Tangles Hair Studio, stylists with advanced training tame tresses with custom cuts and color sessions or keratin conditioning treatments. During their precut consultation, clients disclose mane-related hopes and fears to stylists who then precision-cut hair into bobs, bouffants, or Kafkaesque layers. Patrons can also opt for single-color partial highlights, which can, over the course of 30 minutes to two hours, add dimension to drab hair. Next, a L’Oreal Power Dose conditioning treatment, tailored to hair types and frizz struggles, takes 5 to 10 minutes and adds shine that endures up to 10 shampoos or one deep-fried larding. Hair-care packages close with a blow-dry and custom style.
A muscular therapy session at Fix therapy can yield all the benefits of an hour-long massage in just a third of the time. The 20-minute therapy isn't magic, though—it's just astonishingly efficient. Initial sessions at The Fix Therapy start with a review of the patient's medical history and three tests, which assess day-to-day posture habits and resting body alignment. Based on this information, a licensed therapist crafts a personalized cocktail of wellness therapies designed to target and "fix" observed problems with great accuracy. These highly specialized fix therapy sessions could incorporate techniques ranging from reflexology and craniosacral massage to cupping, the art of placing cups on the back to create a therapeutic suction sensation and clear some space in the dish cupboard.
In addition to relieving aches and pains, the staffers work to educate clients on how to avoid injuries and correct poor posture habits that contribute to bodily problems. They also offer acupuncture and aesthetic services, including facials, microderabrasions, and contouring body wraps.
Although creative cuts and color headline the menu at Peanut's Hair Attraction, Peanut and her team offer a number of additional salon services.

Likewise, the waxing specialists whisk unwanted hair from nearly any area of the anatomy while other staff members soothe stressed muscles and minds with gentle massage.
At Precision Hair Salon, highly skilled hair artists and beauty technicians embellish scalps and rejuvenate skin with a host of salon and spa treatments.
