Although the retro cutting chairs and eclectic, recycled furnishings between its exposed-brick walls exude a vintage vibe, Alwin Anthony Salon maintains a modern edge, thanks to owner Sara Bott. Thestaff uses only the latest coloring, manicure, and body-waxing techniques and high-end products from Onesta and LuLu Blossom?decisions that helped earn the shop the Reader's Choice for Best Hair Salon 2012 award from the Daily Herald.

While Sara is out on the floor educating stylists and clients about organic Surface Hair Health Art products, staff can be found at the vintage manicure station expertly filing, buffing, and painting nails with a rainbow of CND and OPI polishes. The team?s eco-consciousness reaches beyond recycled furniture to encompass a petite menu of organic and vegan services ranging from coconut oil-based Framesi hair colors to vegan mani-pedis using SPArituals polishes freshly plucked from their homegrown nail-polish tree.

Envious Tanning Salon & Spa is more like a luxurious day spa than a traditional tanning studio. While it does offer classic beds and spray tanning, that's only the tip of the iceberg. Guests might have their teeth whitened and muscles massaged in one visit. Or, they might try to tone muscles on a vibrating FIT Machine or via infrared heat. This is because the spa has harnessed several forms of cutting-edge technology, which allows clients to customize their beautifying experiences in private beds and chambers.
