Studio 54 Salon & Day Spa is committed to beauty from the inside out. The staff members know that a multitude of factors, from vitamin intake to common health problems, play a role in keeping manes and complexions in top-notch shape. That's why its stylists don't just trim away split ends, and its aestheticians do more than merely moisturize skin. The beauty experts also help clients maintain vibrant and healthy skin and hair by referring them to the registered nurse on staff, who performs complete health checks, including measuring blood pressure and screening for diabetes. In addition, Studio 54's staff members offer a range of hairstyles, including options for chemotherapy patients, as well as facials, waxing treatments, and massages. These services utilize vitamin- and mineral-rich ingredients to remove the environment's harmful effects, including sun damage and smog-filled pores.

The aestheticians at Columbus Skin Care Salon want to ensure that clients' experiences are not only relaxing but also beneficial for their skin type. They provide a complimentary consultation that analyzes every inch of the face and then use the results to customize such treatments as facials, peels, and waxing, which may use cold-sugar wax or soft or hard wax to prevent irritation. In addition to performing facial treatments that tend to specific issues, including acne, dull skin, and clogged pores, the aestheticians have a MicroZone treatment that targets a problem area and quickly eliminates its troubles.
Persnickety's skilled mane-master Maria Foust can snip, highlight, and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Maria senses your innermost hair-yearnings, then directs her careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting her creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut, shampoo, and style ($45 for women, $25 for men, $15+ for kids) that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. A highlighting service ($135) draws attention to a customer’s favorite strands, while back-talking fuzz may be made an example of with a waxing ($10+). Maria works with each client to customize his or her look, leaving patrons ready to receive unprompted compliments or have a yacht named in their honor.
Salon Bellage's team of certified Redken colorists and stylists snip, color, texturize, and fancify clients' hair with an extensive choice of professional hair services. After a complimentary consultation, Salon Bellage's hairsperts will sculpt locks with the french cutting method, which utilizes both scissors and razors to create a cut reflective of each individual's personality and lifestyle. Haircut prices for men ($15 to $25), women ($25 to $55), and children ($12) are based on hair artists' expertise levels, hair density and length, and the roll of a 12-sided die. Colorists provide a full range of services ($50 to $150), including three-dimensional highlighting, a technique that creates softer color with natural-looking outgrowth. Or, opt for an expert updo ($35 to $75), which will dazzle black-tied hearts at special events or at any couture poker night at home. Salon Bellage's team will also work with clients to texturize, straighten, or correct color (prices vary).
Front Porch Gallery's curators bedeck shelves and walls with eclectic creations for all the senses, sourced mostly from local masters. Whimsical decorations such as blown-glass orbs ($18) and beautifully glazed, kiln-fired crockery(starting at $9) tinge the gallery with the feel of a quirky curio shop. A fleet of Heritage Candles transports homes to nostalgic locales on the wings of scents, such as tranquility, Georgia peach, and sweet citrus basil ($10.50), and Camille Beckman lotions let wearers carry a range of fragrances out of the home ($8). Not to be outdone, artistic edibles such as Wind & Willow gourmet mixes with caramel icing stimulate the faculties of taste, sight, and the hard-to-awaken Spidey sense ($10.98).
