Susan D'Antona's secret ingredient is math. The mastermind behind Mega Hair Elite carefully calculates how much weight can be held by each strand of hair before applying hair extensions one by one, leading to natural-looking length that doesn't cause damage. However, Ms. D'Antona's extension skills go beyond the mere creation of longer locks. Her eyelash treatments call upon NovaLash products, which are applied directly to the natural lash, thus helping clients to bat their eyes more easily at potential paramours or dive-bombing butterflies. To facilitate beach trips, the staff applies sunless tanning treatments and waxes away excess hair from 14 body zones. The shop also supports women who experience hair loss by stocking up an extensive inventory of non-surgical wigs.

Since 1885, Dillons Russian Steam Bath has been steaming stress out of its patrons, making it one of the oldest traditional Russian baths in the United States. Using the time-honored methods of the banya, Dillons' steam chamber seeks to subdue stress and tension with heated granite rocks, billowing steam, and sponges of cold water for invigorating dousing. At its balmiest, the upper bench of the steam room can reach as high as 180 degrees, promoting a healthy, skin-softening sweat and a bevy of ulterior body benefits.
