Expansive, sunny windows illuminate the deep-red walls framing Mid City Salon’s elegant space, where trained aestheticians groom keratin-based parts with a range of treatments. Stylists revamp hair with trimming and chemical services that alter color and texture without attempting high-risk crayon implantation. Manicurists, meanwhile, outfit natural and acrylic nails in decorative swipes of polish, creating long-lasting style with CND Shellac applications or trendy designs such as cheetah print and flowers. Aestheticians can also rework façades with a quick brow and lip wax or a flawless makeup application. For offsite pampering, stylists arrive at homes during salon birthday parties to give girls aged 3 and older a chic updo, a smattering of glitter makeup, and polished nails that make them feel like adults without memorizing tax-return terminology.
Within the commercial bustle of the Fashion Place Mall, Studio H20 Salon's professional stylists focus on communication, taking the time for consultations with each client before styling a single strand. The clean lines and metallic accents of the salon's industrial-chic interior parallels the modern styles that depart daily on the heads of their many customers. Additionally, hair is treated to services such as dimensional coloring (Studio H20's specialty) and top-notch salon products by such brands as Bumble and bumble and K?rastase. Hair artistry is supplemented by other beauty services, such as manicures dolled out by staff at nearby nail stations and compliments from talking mirrors.

The iconic beauty of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor serves as inspiration to the skilled staff at Nostalgic Nails and Boutique, where retro-classic allure reigns. Signature pedicures allow clients to opt for luxury like those visions of the past: a Breakfast at Tiffany's pedicure pampers legs and feet with a whirlpool soak, cuticle care, and a sugar scrub and moisturizing mask. However, they still understand that all clients should pursue their own kind of beautiful, be it through Classic manicures, nail glitter, or eyelash extensions.
