For some salons, highlights and lowlights are as modern as the styling services get. Medusa’s is not one of those salons. Its stylists can cut and fashion the perfect mohawk, and when your hair is dyed green, it’s not an accident. An onsite artist puts the capper on new looks with henna tattoos. Highlighting its alternative ambiance, each month Medusa’s chooses a local up-and-coming band to receive a complete rock-‘n’-roll makeover. On the first Wednesday of every month, the salon turns off the music and blow-dryers to accommodate its clients with sensory issues.
The aestheticians at Diamond Nail Boutique use fingers and toes as canvases to create eye-catching designs. After trimming and buffing nails, they can apply colorful polish or long-lasting, chip-resistant Shellac. To complement the mani-pedis, techs relax clients with exfoliating aroma scrubs and skin-softening paraffin wax treatments.
Stylist Kimberly Gaul knows that professional evolution is important. With more than 13 years of experience to guide her, she places a priority on learning new trends and techniques, allowing her to combine a well-practiced hand with an of-the-moment eye. After spending nearly a decade is a traditional salon setting, Gaul discovered that she was happier in an environment that allowed her to focus solely on the client in front of her, rather than the social forays of neighboring stylists. In addition to mastering the hairstyling basics, Kimberly can render advanced services such as full highlights or keratin conditioning treatments that incorporate awapuhi extract. Her work beyond coiffures includes waxing away unwanted hairs and instructing clients on makeup application in knowledge-filled sessions that last 30 minutes, like sitcoms where part of the story is embedded in commercial breaks.

Aestheticians help smooth away blemishes with chemical peels and microdermabrasion procedures and also nourish skin by incorporating vitamin C or nutrient-rich enzymes into their standard spa facials. Drawing on their mastery of multiple massage modalities, massage therapists can melt away tension with hot stones or stimulate the senses with aromatherapy.
Amadeus Spa's accomplished bite blanchers banish stains from teeth using the safe and speedy SpaWhite express system.

Over the course of 15 minutes, teeth turn two to four shades whiter, helping patients obtain a younger-looking smile without the use of gooey whitestrips or bulky bleaching trays.
