The team at Jon Ric Salon has one goal: make their clients look and feel like royalty, even though royalty is illegal in the US. To do so, the staff combines their skills with high-quality products from brands such as Wella, Rusk, and Pravana. In addition to their full slate of hair and nail services, they also do waxing and makeup applications. The salon’s interior features hanging yellow lights, elegant wood-framed mirrors with pedestals, flowers, and homey lamps that make other fluorescent-light salons look like interrogation rooms. Conveniently, Jon Ric Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.
At her multicultural salon, Couture Stylez, Chaz James works with all types of tresses. The veteran stylist and colorist strengthens and moisturizes manes with various treatments, then cuts and colors them into chic looks. She also smoothes strands with relaxers, keratin treatments, and Japanese straightening treatments. If guests want more texture or curls in their locks, Chaz can apply a texturizing treatment or style hair into twist outs. She even sews in weaves and extensions or cross-stitches memorable scenes from Rapunzel into dos.

There’s always a busy buzz at Inspiration by Claudia. Inside, you can find stylists hard at work with cuts, blowouts, and conditioning treatments. Aestheticians occupy themselves by waxing eyebrows, removing signs of age with Botox treatments, and performing 60-minute facials. The staff speaks both English and Spanish, ensuring clients get the look they desire and not just this haircut photo glued to the back of their head.
Loving Lotus Center & Spa's cadre of conventional and spiritual healers blend physical and metaphysical pampering within their pastel-tinted space. Spa treatments enhance traditional facials and massages with holistic tools, such as gemstones and crystals, and luxurious products, such as caviar, gold, and Lamborghini owner's manuals. Guides experienced in exploring the unseen help clients consult tarot cards, study mediumship, or reorient a room according to feng shui principles. Serene treatment rooms aid attendees in turning their gazes inward during classes that cover topics such as meditation or reiki.
