Comfortably ensconced inside the sophisticated Cosi Chic Blow Bar, Salon & Spa, visitors are invited to reinvent themselves with transformations large and small. The day spa's services range from massages and facials to nailcare and hairstyling, and each of these service types boasts its own wide spectrum of diversity. For example, those seated at hairstyling stations might opt for a simple root-touchup or top-hat-trimming session, but they're just as likely to get a candy-colored slick of rainbow dye, or to lose themselves in layers of lush extensions. Mani-pedis, meanwhile, range from sensory-focused spa treatments to expressive nail art and long-lasting acrylic. Add a facial and a tension-melting hot-stone massage, and you've got an all-day spa retreat that leaves you feeling as ritzy as you'll look.
Dasol takes the ?med? part of med-spa seriously: it?s staffed by a team of board-certified cosmetic surgeons, registered nurses, and aestheticians.

Time-tested spa treatments are coupled with products from SkinCeuticals and Obagi and advanced technology including the skin-firming eMatrix system, wrinkle-plumping dermal fillers, and the highly publicized HydraFacial.
Detlev Hair Studio's experienced aestheticians smooth out hirsute humans with follicle-felling treatments culled from its extensive menu of waxing services.

Salon-goers can rid shoulders of fuzz ($25), neaten up a bikini line ($28), or de-fur chests ($40) while tucked within the angular, modern confines of Detlev’s cosmetically minded atelier. Detlev aids busy clients in their hair-removal quest by keeping doors open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, removing unwanted stubble before morning commutes or after evening werewolf hunts.
Every pair of eyes is unique. That's the view at Blink Lash Boutique, where owners Janelle Koch and Jen Pearson lead a skilled staff in providing custom eyelash extensions for their guests. Each team member applies synthetic extensions one by one, making lashes longer without fitting them for tiny platform shoes. The strands themselves are available in a variety of styles and thicknesses to create looks from subtle to dramatic. No matter what the desired outcome, the team places client safety and comfort first?Jen and Janelle are both professional aestheticians, and all of their fellow lash stylists undergo rigorous training to ensure their work is suitably flirtatious.

A hair blow ($45) imparts beautiful blasts of heat for precisely sculpted scalps (included with all cuts), and the uptown girl ($75) upsweeps strands for special occasions such as weddings, high-school reunions, or upscale stuffed-animal parties.
