Studio 54 Salon & Day Spa is committed to beauty from the inside out. The staff members know that a multitude of factors, from vitamin intake to common health problems, play a role in keeping manes and complexions in top-notch shape. That's why its stylists don't just trim away split ends, and its aestheticians do more than merely moisturize skin. The beauty experts also help clients maintain vibrant and healthy skin and hair by referring them to the registered nurse on staff, who performs complete health checks, including measuring blood pressure and screening for diabetes. In addition, Studio 54's staff members offer a range of hairstyles, including options for chemotherapy patients, as well as facials, waxing treatments, and massages. These services utilize vitamin- and mineral-rich ingredients to remove the environment's harmful effects, including sun damage and smog-filled pores.
For more than 60 years, William's Salon has subdued savage strands with its arsenal of experienced stylists.

During a personalized consultation, a level seven moisture master will analyze your hair's protein levels, moisture, and ability to balance chemical equations before applying any deep-conditioning secret agents. The 10-minute smoothsperience commences with a thorough blow-dry and can be used in conjunction with other salon services. Call to schedule an appointment.
At A Kneaded Massage, licensed massage therapist Patsy Ann Dugger eases the stresses and strains of weary muscles with her personalized care, expert execution, and hands. In the one-hour sinew-soothing session, Dugger exercises her specialty of alleviating headaches and lower-back pain, transforming taught, prickly puffer fish into sea-swimmers made of jelly. Clients may choose to manipulate muscles into good health with a pre-natal, therapeutic, relaxation, or stress-reduction massage, or choose to keep jealous skeletons from jumping ship with an orthopedic massage.
Midtown Massage Studio’s licensed muscle manipulators employ nine massage techniques. Relish the long, flowing, and muscle-comforting strokes of a Swedish massage, or permit the trained therapist to enlist localized pressure, brute strength, and chainmail gloves to pummel chronic pain with a deep-tissue massage. Muscular tissue receives specialized attention with a myofascial-release session, which is designed to relieve stress from all connective tissue in the body. For an additional charge, clients can indulge in massage upgrades, such as a hot-stone massage ($25 extra) or bamboo massage ($15 extra).
Persnickety's skilled mane-master Maria Foust can snip, highlight, and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Maria senses your innermost hair-yearnings, then directs her careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting her creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut, shampoo, and style ($45 for women, $25 for men, $15+ for kids) that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. A highlighting service ($135) draws attention to a customer’s favorite strands, while back-talking fuzz may be made an example of with a waxing ($10+). Maria works with each client to customize his or her look, leaving patrons ready to receive unprompted compliments or have a yacht named in their honor.
