Le Techniques Salon's nail technicians beautify digits and soothe worn-out appendages with two-hour manicures and pedicures. Like the team of kids tasked with summoning the captain of their planet, Fire and Ice treatments combine their opposing elemental forces to soothe and heal appendages. Seated in plush chairs, patrons undergo warm exfoliating scrubs, which heat the skin while gently removing dead cells. A cool eucalyptus masks offers a refreshing counterpoint to the warm rub and imbues dehydrated hides with moisture and nutrients. Cuticles are then meticulously trimmed and nails shaped into smooth ovals before crystalline coats of polish lavishly shield them from the gaze of undercover fashion police.
Il Bellezza Place Salon & Spa's licensed aestheticians rejuvenate skin with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments and enzyme-infused facials. Both flavors of 15-minute facial can improve the appearance, if not the attitude of, blotchy, acne-prone, or sun-damaged skin by accelerating the natural exfoliation process more effectively than frantically pedaling a bike against the wind. The noninvasive microdermabrasion treatment can help fade fine scars and wrinkles, and the enzyme facial decimates dead skin and bacteria. Clients may notice and feel results the day of treatment, but multiple sessions are recommended to treat acne or particularly stubborn clown face paint.
Around the spiral staircase inside Great Day Massage, subdued decor and soft music relax patrons as licensed staff members perform massages, facials, and manicures. Clients who want the works can fly solo with a spa package, or host their own spa parties with custom treatments, catered meals, and mandatory terry-cloth gowns.

The stylists at Shear Madness are equally comfortable sprucing up hairstyles with cuts and color treatments, waxing away facial hair, and misting exteriors with airbrush tans. But unlike Icarus, who flew so close to the sun that his wings got all sweaty and gross, they know their limitations; they pass clients over to an onsite massage therapist for bodywork sessions, which range from 30 to 90 minutes. Ever accommodating, the staff welcomes walk-ins during most business hours and on Saturdays, and they also schedule appointments for after 5 p.m.
