At Batool Salon, a coterie of beauty service providers enhances the natural appearances of clients with a blend of ancient techniques and modern trends. During eyebrow-threading sessions the string-wielding perfectionists festoon facescapes with precise lines and streamlined eye moustaches. The thread quickly removes singular hairs, which eliminates guesswork and prevents skin irritation. Eyelash extensions also accentuate guests' ocular features, and natural henna tattoos decorate bodies with intricate, personalized patterns for up to two weeks. In addition, Batool Salon features a boutique with hand-embroidered clothing items and accessories that are one-of-a-kind to reduce the likelihood of showing up at a party in the exact same outfit as another mannequin.
Though their specialties may differ, the doctors and therapists at Intuitive Healing LLC share one important trait: they understand that each human body is a complex organism and that no two are quite alike. This common understanding leads them to reject a one-size-fits-all approach to health and rely instead on custom detoxification and wellness programs. To keep bodies comfortable on their journey toward better health, Intuitive Healing’s licensed massage therapists draw on a range of modalities that include trigger-point therapy and neuromuscular therapy. Their detoxifying facial massages stimulate circulation and soothe muscles caught in the self-defeating cycle of frowning at how sore they are from frowning.

A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.
