You won't find the words "Extreme," "Hollywood," or "Rock Star" on Zipp Lash's menu. Instead, you can opt for 50, 60, or 70 natural-looking eyelash extensions custom fitted to your eyes so they look like your own natural lashes, albeit a bit more lush. Lash technicians undergo an eyelash residency to learn the two-step fitting process that ensures lashes look real and last up to four weeks between fills.

The Serenity Facial (a $75 value) is BeautyQuest's classic countenance service, blending together deep cleansing, exfoliation, massage, and a mask treatment, all customized to suit the specific face at hand. The included hand and arm massage feathers the edges of the pore-based pampering with the finesse of a paintbrush manned by Bob Ross. Once skin is thoroughly scrubbed and glowing, a skilled aesthetician will use radiance like a spotlight to aid in the performing of a detailed manicure with soothing essential oils and warm towels (a $15 value). During the manicure, finger-skin and nails will be buffed and shaped until they're smiling, at which point they will be treated to an additional hydrating massage and fresh coat of polish.
The trained staff at Fracassi Lashes knows that, with a little upkeep, eyelashes can add serious drama to every wink, blink, or gaze. At their five locations, trained technicians apply either single lashes or clusters, creating dark, dramatic lashes without the need for mascara. Beyond lashes, techs also wax and sculpt eyebrows, freeing up time for each client to focus on maintaining the rest of her face, or the second face on the back of her head.
Whether working out of the studio or in clients' homes, the licensed aestheticians at GlamHer Lash Studio beautify clients with semipermanent eyelash extensions and complimentary arm and shoulder massages. Semipermanent extensions may last for as long as two months, helping to strengthen natural lashes in the process. In addition to extensions, the studio also offers in-home microdermabrasion treatments and hair-removal services.
The coiffure connoisseurs at Hair Envy Salon transform wild, unmanageable manes into sleek, obedient scalp guards. First, scissor twirlers snip off split ends and add fresh style with a precision haircut ($25 value). Next, the approximately 90-minute Brazilian blowout zero treatment nourishes and smooths strands, improving hairs' condition as it banishes frizz, curls, and baby parakeets (up to a $425 value). The process comprises an initial shampoo with a preparatory solution, a thorough douse of the formaldehyde-free formula, a blow-dry and flat-iron styling, and an application of a style-sealing mask. After receiving one final rinse and a coat of smoothing serum, manes are blown dry again, emerging as straight and glamorous-in-the-wind as a yacht's mast. A skin-softening paraffin hand treatment ($10) concludes pampering.
