Rocks Blow Dry Bar is a salon with no scissors. Hair clippings have never graced its floors, and its sinks have never touched a drop of hair color. That's because Rocks Blow Dry Bar specializes in one simple, yet essential service: the blow dry. Whether they're there to freshen up for a night on the town or simply bask in the massage-like relaxation of a professional shampoo, visitors to Rocks Blow Dry Bar walk in with languishing locks and emerge in less than an hour with a shiny, tossable style customized to their tastes, whether it's voluminous and curly, stick straight, or a theoretical quantum state between the two. Beyond a standard wash and dry, stylists can add deep-conditioning treatments and soothing scalp massages, and even deck out clients with formal updos and makeup applications for upscale events.
A team of talented specialists inhabits Cypress Creek Hair & Nail Salon, gliding across the checkerboard floor with hair dryers, scissors, and nail files in hand. Master hair designer J. J. Sharon snips sculptured cuts and arranges locks into elegant updos, and licensed cosmetologist Laura Ellis frames faces in shimmering highlights. Manager Caroline Boothe captains the hair-removal and nail departments, expertly sculpting eyebrows using ancient threading techniques and decorating nails with durable Shellac polish as clients recline in cushy black pedicure chairs.

As many parents of curious children can attest, it takes more than a pair of scissors and a spare half hour to become a salon artist. This is especially true when taking on one of the most time-consuming services a salon can offer: strand-by-strand hair extensions. The stylists at Luxury Tress The Salon specialize in this meticulous art, armed with their brand of Hott Links strand extensions, which are made of human hair in 32 colors for a natural look or a vibrantly colored statement. The stylists also revamp ‘dos with cuts, color treatments, and hair-restoration services to help heal locks damaged by the sun, an incredibly amateurish barber.

All of the hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians at Serenity Spa strive to make clients feel comfortable and relaxed, not just by pampering them, but by putting them at ease with unpretentious service. Wielding botanically based Aveda products, the stylists can reshape tresses into a modern 'do or a scale model of Mount Rushmore. Relaxing and therapeutic massages unfurl knotted muscles, and the spa's facial and body treatments employ Pevonia skincare products and luxuriant ingredients, including pure caviar extract, African sea-salt scrubs, and masks with seaweed and chamomile. The nail technicians tidy up clients' digits by evenly trimming cuticles and shaping nails, glazing them with a fresh coat of color or a chip-resistant Axxium or Shellac gel polish.
