Beau Monde Salon and Spa owner Liz Pierro is committed to pursuing the most modern hair and aesthetics treatments, which has led to the curation of a service menu that seems to include almost everything. Stylists begin each service with a shampoo and scalp massage, and can also take clients into private rooms for fittings of ready-to-wear wigs and sheitels. In spa rooms that are equally private because they have doors, therapists perform Beau Monde's signature deluxe massages, which combine two modalities into a double-length session, as well as custom body wraps with mud and pure marine extracts. The rest of the menu includes everything from manicures to ultrasonic cavitation, all of which is performed in a beautiful, like-home space furnished with hardwood floors, sheer curtains, and showers lined with spa tile.
For more than 80 years, Vincent's Rejuvenate Salon & Day Spa has watched beauty trends come and go, folding finger curls, piling beehives, primping pompadours, and layering Rachel cuts. Although the styles have changed, the one constant through the decades has been the staff's ability to make each client feel at home. From the salon floor, stylists engage in spirited banter as they pamper clients with J Beverly Hills and Goldwell color and conditioning treatments. With a thick dose of joviality, Vincent's aestheticians spend their days brightening complexions with green-tea-infused paraffin masks and Sothys vitamin C facials. During mani-pedi treatments, technicians decorate digits with Essie and OPI polishes while scribbling ”Best friendz 4 lyf” on each nail.

Benson House, D2 Spa & Doula Services matches its cozy Dutch Colonial surroundings with signature massages that earned it a spot in the 2012 edition of InStyle's Beauty Black Book.
