For more than 17 years, the staff at Sima’s Salon & Spa has made clients exemplars of high fashion with an emphasis on creativity and individualized attention. Before administering any cuts, conditioning, or color treatments, the team carefully considers various aspects of the client’s appearance and lifestyle. They assess the shape of the face, which can suggest what features are best to highlight and which would look best covered in hair. The salon's licensed aesthetician also takes an analytical approach as she customizes daily skincare routines with organic products by Éminence and uses hard wax to remove hair from brow to foot and everywhere in-between.

The docket of services covers all the bases, from haircuts and coloring to French manicures and massages. Natural and organic products add another dimension of comfort and wellness to the treatments, which help align the mind and body and recalibrate the soul's GPS system.
Chock full of environmentally conscious practices and comfy armchairs, Juste B's comfortable salon soothes fingers and toes with a slew of doting manicure and pedicure services.

Not to be overshadowed, floor-based digits receive the same treatment before aestheticians smother them in a honey-almond treatment, a deep hydration that sinks softly into skin with a hot-towel wrap. For long-lasting, healthy bone coverings, hands and feet also absorb a protective coating of natural sunscreen. Finally, tendons stretch and strengthen under the invigorating attention of a capable masseuse before finger and toe tips don expressive pigmentation with a water-based polish, colored to match outfits or express a complicated admiration for Pollock.
