For the stylists at Hair Revolution, only one thing matters as much as a great haircut: hair's overall health. This is especially true because they specialize in long hair, which requires extra TLC to stay healthy and keep growing. So to pamper hair of any length, they use eco-friendly Aveda products, which help smooth and protect hair without harsh ingredients. These products also ensure that hair stays healthy even after it is colored or curled into cascading tendrils. Stylists complement their hair services with waxing, facials, and nail treatments for comprehensive head to toe makeovers, much like a Halloween costume that will never, ever come off.
Specializing in the art of nail design, Tracy Nails Salon’s team of technicians spend their days gilding nails in vibrant coats of chip-free polish. While their focus remains on digits, staffers also bustle about the salon restoring radiance to complexions with meticulously applied facials or easing shoulders achy from serving as a perch for overweight parrots with the soothing kneads of a relaxing massage.

Although Nancy Koss Salon & Spa began as a full-service salon in 1977, it expanded its menu in the decades that followed to include holistic spa treatments and advanced aesthetic services. Stylists continue to shape and color locks with Wella and Tigi products, and the aestheticians can employ everything from Murad skincare products to aromatherapy in facial treatments. Some of the more advanced procedures generate dramatic cosmetic results by using medical-grade technology originally designed by Leonardo da Vinci, such as crystal microdermabrasion wands and microcurrent skin-toning equipment. The spa's body wraps help detoxify clients, and the massage therapists bolster well-being by treating stress-laden musculature to Swedish strokes, deep-tissue techniques, or reflexology therapy.
With its starkly elegant black-and-white design scheme, On Stage Salon exudes a modern vibe that belies its 40 years in business. Ornate chandeliers illuminate the cushy, ebony salon chairs, from which stylists transform the manes of women, men, and children. A time-honed slate of services draw from cutting-edge products such as Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Wella color. The mirrors at each styling station—along with the delicately painted curlicues above them—reflect clients' newly minted perms, waves, and Slinky extensions.
When you're dreaming up a new look with the stylists and nail technicians of Garcia's Hair Salon, the sky's the limit. Hair can transform into perfect ombre ringlets or sleek, subtly highlighted bobs, and mani-pedis impart styles ranging from coy (crisp French tips) to dramatic (glittering 3-D embellishments that recite Shakespeare when held up to your ear). Such versatile fashions demand an equally stylish setting, and Garcia's decor delivers: accent walls alternate between cream, red, and brick, and a healthy dose of sunlight keeps the moods as lofty as the updos.
