Element Six Salon embraces beautiful geometry. Inside, white mod-style chairs and a desk crisscrossed with white lines announce Element Six’s crisp, modern aesthetic. Panes of mottled glass stand behind the reception area, flanking the entrance to the styling floor, and rectangles of abstract art decorate the walls.
There's an open, minimalist vibe to the décor, one that complements the neat and meticulous work of the staff. Don't be fooled, however—just because the salon is tidy, doesn't mean that its crew can't give your 'do an eye-catching edge.
The team uses products by brands such as Redken and Goldwell to create fresh looks, consulting with clients throughout the appointment to pin down the desired aesthetic. They can imbue strands with color through single-process treatments and highlights, or arrange hair into a nuanced updo.
Reiki master Maryann Lonergan didn't learn reiki as a hobby or a career. She took up the art of reiki in an effort to help ease her mother's progressive Alzheimer's disease. The holistic healing technique is designed to help bodies heal naturally from a range of ailments, including stress and chronic pain. In treatment rooms, Maryann places her hands over specific nodes in the body and attempts to balance personal energy and calm patrons with strategic touches.

Inside of Platinum Hair Studio, the sleek white, tan, and black decor offsets the wall-length product shelf ablaze with color. Cleansers, styling creams, and other potions sport premium labels such as Bumble and bumble, Moroccanoil, Goldwell, and Sebastian. During hair services, highly trained staffers use their suction-cup grappling guns to pluck the products as they infuse locks with radiant color and voluminous style.
Clients can bring tools and products from home during Hairstyling 101 classes that teach laypersons to expertly manipulate locks without investing in new items.

Hands that Heal Massage Therapy's Cheri Ann Garet is a nationally certified massage therapist and reiki master teacher and uses this double expertise to train minds and muscles to release tension in tandem. Swedish massages teem with rolling motions and long, smooth strokes, and deep-tissue massages melt knots from the muscles' innermost layers, easing the chronic pain associated with sciatica and migraine headaches. Candlelight, aromatherapy, and soothing music infuse reiki sessions, as Cheri gently places her hands on the body to transfer energy inward, a practice believed to promote healing for three to seven days or longer for patients who remember to unplug their circulatory system when not in use.
