Absolute Pilates?s instructors are far from old-school. Though they each boast extensive training in traditional Pilates?and teach classic mat classes?they focus largely on incorporating modern equipment into the ancient practice. Pilates Reformers, Towers, chairs, and even the barre are used during classes, often in combination with each other to optimize workouts and results. The equipment helps students of all levels maintain their balance and target dormant muscles, transforming standard Pilates into a more effective workout. But teachers still maintain the welcoming, personal environment long attributed to Pilates studios and grandma?s doomsday bunker.
At EZ Eyebrow, the gentle arch of a freshly groomed brow is as natural as the hair-removal technique that creates it. Threading first sprang up in ancient Egypt and India, and as opposed to modern waxing, which can damage skin or create a worldwide candle shortage, threading specifically targets hair. It sweeps up a tuft at a time, carving eyebrows into natural arches with precision. In fact, its accuracy rivals that of tweezing—and in less time, since hairs are pulled out in bunches, not one by one. Plus, threading services can also eradicate hair from other parts of the face and neck.

Karen Lynn's Back to Basics facial—a blend of massage and hydration—epitomizes her spa philosophy. Instead of chasing the latest crazes, Karen focuses on the nexus between traditional, time-tested facials and current information about skincare. After all, she's been an aesthetician for more than two decades, and has seen many trends come and go. At Skin Logic, she targets acne, wrinkles, and dryness with cleansing facials, peels, and microcurrent treatments.
Ornate candlesticks, framed mirrors, fringed lampshades, and detailed furniture bestow Shear Madness Salon, Tanning, & Day Spa with a Victorian look that conveys decadence. But the nostalgia only goes so far as the decor, as the spa's staff beautifies its clients with modern techniques and products. Mystic spray-tan booths deliver glows within seconds, and Beach Wave perms and keratin treatments change the texture of tresses.
