The hair artisans at Fantastic Sams’ more than 1,300 nationwide locations sculpt locks on both men and women with precision and skill. Along with creating updos for special occasions and performing facial waxing and mustache trims, the artisans accompany haircuts by shampooing strands and bolstering circulation with three-minute scalp massages that feature nourishing serum. Deep-conditioning treatments repair damage and bolster shine, and full-color services paint heads in subtle hues or shades as vibrant as a bouquet of light bulbs. A lineup of hair products rounds out the services, treating heads to restorative mixtures from brands such as Moroccanoil, Bamboo, and Fantastic Sams' own in-house line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids.

Strength of the Hands' logo has ten fingers, and the staff offers almost as many types of massage. Deep-tissue melts away aches with firm pressure, while Swedish involves long, flowing strokes. The seven massage therapists also specialize in the soothing heat of hot towel massage and assuage the pains of expectant mothers with prenatal massage. Beautification is just as important as relaxation, as the service menu also includes facials, body waxing, and barnacle removal.
At Total Wellness Massage, clients often relax so deeply that they fall asleep on the table—and not only the ones who are there for a relaxation massage. Experienced therapist Jill Holden makes sure that even sports-rehabilitation and injury-treatment massages feel soothing. Integrative massage techniques allow her to access deep layers of tissue without causing pain, so she can achieve therapeutic goals with lighter strokes. During each session, she applies advanced techniques such as myofascial release, trigger-point therapy, and active/passive range of motion to address each client's individual needs.
Elizabeth Joy Williquette understands that sometimes, life can make you feel like you're walking in circles. As a reiki master teacher and licensed massage therapist, she is dedicated to helping people stay the course through those trying times and emerge with their well-being intact. In the comfort of her cozy studio, Elizabeth can place her hands over the body's energy meridians to promote healing or take a more direct route to tension relief with flowing Swedish bodywork.
