Snuggle up in a cozy salon chair and let a tonsorial artist transform frayed hair threads with a cut (up to $38), color (up to $50), or highlight (up to $70), creating a new style that complements your facial features and personal aura. Subdue tangled tresses with a conditioning Tension Tamer treatment ($15) or choose the All About Hue treatment ($15) to spray your head's shrubbery with a dose of fresh lemon or apple. All forms of follicles will benefit from the formaldehyde-free, moisturizing Awapuhi KeraTriplex treatment, which delivers a concentrated blend of keratin proteins to fix up and seal strands from the cuticle to the core. The treatment is known to reduce up to 80% percent of hair breakage, whether it's caused by excessive brushing, colors gone rogue, or dropping your head on the floor too many times.

Helmed by certified massage therapist Barb King, Pure Therapy ends stress's stranglehold on muscles and minds by promoting physical health and psychological well-being.

An effective way to ease headaches, back pain, and arthritis, a Swedish massage offers a chance at blissful relief. Meanwhile, warm yellow lamps, calming green walls, and a cozy fireplace distract guests with aesthetic comfort as the therapist evicts pesky charley horses and surly tendon jockeys.
