The stylists at Edessa's Hair Salon draw on years of experience working with all types of hair to give each client the look they desire. They trim away split ends with precise scissor-snips, infuse strands with rich color, and deep-condition tresses with balms and butters by Redken and Biolage Hydrathérapie. Patrons can also peruse more than 150 shades of OPI nail polish for meticulous manicures and spa pedicures.

Nearly a decade ago, master-stylist Jarmen Kordou founded J. Antou Salon in Aveda's established tradition of beauty, health, and earth friendliness. Offering services from cuts to color to nail and skincare, Kordou and crew transform exteriors with Aveda products rendered largely from organic ingredients such as marshmallow root, sunflower oil, and nut-seed pigment from Brazil. With this garden-grown palette at their disposal, the stylists take a personal, consultative approach to beauty, customizing treatments to their clients' face shape, lifestyle, and fedora-wearing habits.
At Asha SalonSpa, aestheticians and massage therapists combine forces to ensure the whole-body well-being of clients.

Asha also offers several massages, including deep-tissue, couples, and chakra-balancing modalities, allowing patrons to unwind without setting off their clockwork motors.
