Bella Luna Salon regales tresses with cuts, color, highlights, and more using high-end products from Alfaparf and Actyva. Start the styling session with a women's haircut and style ($50) or a deep-conditioning mask, which moisturizes manes as effectively as fire-hydrant hats ($25). A single-process color lightens, darkens, or reddens the 'do (starting at $60), while a full set of highlights brightens braid-strands (starting at $100). Attentive, experienced stylists reconfigure curlicued coifs with the Brazilian keratin straightening treatment which delivers results that last for weeks (prices upon consultation). On the way out, stock up on shampoos, conditioners, and inflatable pompadours from Bella Luna's selection of high-end products.
Salon Efthimia’s staff of pampering pros skillfully siphon the stress out of frazzled hands, faces, and bodies with soothing treatments and high-quality Aveda products. A Caribbean therapy treatment for the hands and feet uses plant ingredients from the tropics and an exfoliating paste to transform gnarled hand-roots into vibrant arm-blossoms. During an Elemental Nature massage, you get to select your favorite Aveda aroma, then relax for 60 minutes of personalized massage techniques presented in full smell-o-vision. If you'd rather focus attention on your flesh-emoticon, an Elemental Nature facial plays to your skin's needs with a suite of lotions, whether that means moistening parched pores, de-slicking oily zones, or alleviating rashes of clown paint.
The decor at Franz Salon may be monochromatic—with all-white styling stations arrayed along white brick walls—but that doesn’t mean that its stylists shy away from color. They brighten locks with highlights and use single-process treatments to give hair an entirely new shade. To further transform clients’ looks, they clip locks during haircuts and perform frizz-smoothing keratin treatments, which can make hair sleeker and more manageable for up to 2.5 months.
At Salon 360, homemade cookies help coax each client's inner child back to the surface, lending a helping hand to the stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians who work tirelessly to resurrect lost youth and unveil hidden glamour.

The salon is also certified in Brazilian blowout treatments that grant smoothness and shine to frizzy locks and unraveled knit caps, while heads looking to beef up their thread count find added length and volume with real hair extensions by Great Lengths or SoCapUSA.
