It’s hard to tell if you’re walking into a pedicure studio or a Victorian sitting room. A client relaxes in a throne-like leather chair while a nail technician tends to her feet, and yet it feels as though a butler could walk in at any moment with high tea. Perhaps it’s the nail technicians, who seem to be fawning over royalty, or perhaps it’s the room’s ornate mouldings, matching the patterned wallpaper and rug, and polished hardwood floors. That distinct sense of place elevates both of Parlour on the Avenue’s locations, both housed in buildings constructed in the 1800s—one receiving a preservation award from Indiana Landmarks—and both with two floors bedecked in Victorian decor.
On the ground floors, the staff dotes over visitors with hair, nail, skin, and spa services. The second floors house Victorian wet spas—spaces where clients enjoy privacy and indulgent services such as whey baths, hot-stone massages, and stories read by Charles Dickens. To enhance the results of each service, Parlour’s team recommends aftercare products from its stock, such as lotions from Hempz Body Care and Pino and face-care formulas from Control Corrective.
Helmed by aesthetician Asia Bradford, D'Onyx Day Spa strives to provide personalized service to every client within a relaxing atmosphere. Whether aestheticians draw a peach-scented soak or cloak shoulders in a warm herbal wrap, each nail, massage, or hair treatment performed at D’Onyx Day Spa pampers clients with an extra dose of relaxation or luxury. Massage therapist Brittany indulges patrons with Swedish, bamboo fusion, and deep-tissue massage. The day spa offers an arsenal of services from waxing, facials, and makeup services—all lit by the glow of a faux fireplace.

The specialists at each of Bronze Bay Tanning Center's locations craft custom plans that emphasize building a tan while avoiding burns. They work to help those new to UV beds acquire a base tan and aid seasoned bronzers in reaching new shades. Within colorfully walled rooms, warm-skinned patrons slip out from UltraSun and SunScape units, thankful that the sun is now only used to give cowboys a cool way to leave parties. Air conditioners in UltraSun TurboPower 25000 S units pour out cool air, and the SunScape SS755 produces an even, all-over tan with the aid of frosted acrylic surfaces. At some shop locations, clients foster summer glows with tanning lotions from brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
