Beaux Cheveux's stylists vivify fingers and toes, soothe scalps, and shape head tufts with dedication and care. The beauty salon's selection of hair services ranges from a simple shampoo, condition, and cut ($20+) to a deep-conditioning treatment ($20+) for dehydrated follicles. Highlighting ($40+) brightens sulking tresses, and neophytes ease into coloring with the temporary shading of Beaux Cheveux's glazing ($30+). Necks lean back for crickless shampoo sessions in the salon's Yume chair, which greets clients with gelled neck and head cushions, a customizable reclining bed, and robotic high-fiving armrests. Lasting 30–60 minutes, the Yume treatment ($50–$75), begins with a duet of modern Japanese music and a babbling fountain in a private room. A thorough shampoo cleanses hair, and a deep massage for the shoulders, neck, head, scalp, hands, and feet destresses a plethora of reclined muscles.
Surbhi's Touch of India's aestheticians pride themselves on their speed. In only 20 minutes, their delicate hands whisk away unwanted hair during Brazilian waxes, leaving clients with enough confidence to stop wearing their bikinis over potato sacks. And when they're not clearing away unwanted hair, the beauty experts administer cleansing facials and thread eyebrows using the hands-only method. All of these treatments unfold under a ceiling adorned with red, purple, and golden draped fabrics.

Stylists Amanda McBride and Carrie Ulm opened Har Salon in April to primp clients with a selection of haircut and styling services and body-beautifying techniques. Scissor-wielding hands trim tresses before trading sharp objects for hot air, to render a haircut and blow-dry that updates permanent caps in 35–45 minutes ($25). The stylists can also twist locks into an updo ($45) to reveal any proprietary HTML code tattooed to the neck. Further maintain fringe with an eyebrow wax to shape arches ($10) or an upper lip de-fuzz to make room for milk mustaches ($8). Patrons can also highlight phalanges with nail-popping manicures ($20) or pedicures ($40) and appreciate traditional painting skills by admiring local art that graces the walls of the new facility.
