A maven is defined as a person who has special knowledge or experience, and the stylists at Maven proudly embody this definition. The multicultural hair experts can work with hair of any length, texture, and color. Their services include restorative conditioning treatments, bold color or highlights, basic and creative hairstyles, and relaxers.
Since Benjamin Hair & Co. has 10 hair stylists, three nail techs, and an aesthetician on staff, you'd expect the salon to cover a lot of different services, and you wouldn't be disappointed. There are the usual suspects—keratin treatments, Brazilian waxing, specialty facials—and then there are also hard-to-find treatments: staffers slather on acne-busting Meditouch clinical skincare products, apply Hair Dreams or Brijon Hair extensions, and shave eyebrows into miniature mohawks. They also collect hair donations for Locks of Love, a charitable organization that makes wigs for children who have medical conditions that cause hair loss.
Beauty is only skin deep, but Enliven Skin Care Boutique isn't hiding anything beneath its exterior. The boutique is exactly as advertised: a place where aestheticians enliven and care for skin with services that range from chemical peels to European facials. To do so, they draw on ancient botanical formulas, soothing tea extracts, and products from Repêchage. For clients whose needs extend beyond the skin, the spa also offers eyelash extensions and sugaring hair removal, a technique perfected centuries ago by people who didn't yet realize that sugar is for eating.

Soothing music whispers through the air inside Amor Vitae Spa, helping guests shed their worries and relax. Technicians massage legs during pedicures and finish off manicures with Shellac polish that protects against chips for up to 12 days. The spa uses a slew of organic products, including the sugar wax used to remove hair on faces, legs, and backs.
At first blush, Millennium Medi Spa seems to suffer from a crisis of identity. On one hand, the med spa relies on the clinical expertise of its physician directors to rejuvenate clients’ skin with advanced treatments. But one can’t help but notice the tranquil, spa-like atmosphere and the profusion of treatments—mani-pedis, massages, hydrating facials—that seem rooted in relaxation more than anything else.
These two personalities converge seamlessly thanks to a staff that splits its focus between results and relaxation. Technicians beautify nails with scrubs, paraffin dips, and glossy coats of polish while aestheticians tighten skin and release toxins with body wraps. Similarly results-based procedures include chemical peels, dermal fillers, and vibradermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and barnacles stuck to the face.
