The stylists at Concept36, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, create bold new looks with haircuts and color treatments from their color bar. Their skill with hues can be seen in their highlights, ombre dyes, and color-corrective services, which erase DIY mistakes or signs of science fiction. The nail technicians on staff perform express and full-length mani-pedis with upgrades to paraffin-wax dips and superdurable Shellac polish.
Highlighted by a black-and-white color scheme, high ceilings, and exposed ductwork, Erika Taylor Urban Spa’s industrial aesthetic stands in contrast to its botanically based spa treatments. And though the skincare and massage services involve plant-based emollients, they also leverage cutting-edge techniques and technologies. For instance, HydraFacials resurface skin and deliver an intense dose of moisture via an instrument that loosens and lifts away dull skin cells by creating a vortex. Hair and nail treatments round out the service menu, helping clients become beautiful from head to dewclaw.
Moroccanoil, Design Essentials, and Kenra hair products help Voda Hair Design’s stylists revamp their clients’ manes.

Industrial-looking workstations host men and women during anything from simple haircuts to fancy updos with cascading curls.
Offering a wide range of skincare and waxing services for men and women, Jolie Laide owner Jillian Brice and her skilled staff streamline skinsuits like a fleet of human Zambonis. Clients can choose to gloss over their lifemobile components with a 45-minute back purifying ($35), 20-minute eye treatment ($15), 45-minute skin therapy session ($75), and more. You can also apply your Groupon toward more pronounced pampering such as an aromatherapy saltscrub ($120) or an enzymatic mudwrap ($135). Being cocooned in super-mud (known in the biz as "beauty filth") also gives you more time to appreciate Jolie Laide's inviting atmosphere, spacious facilities, gentle pastel colors, and touches of retro décor.
