Sunlight filters in through Graffiti Hair Studio’s ceiling-high windows, reflecting off polished black shampoo basins that stand out in a space otherwise dominated by light and earthy tones. As stylists escort clients toward the studio’s row of plush salon chairs, their heels click against the hardwood floors, lending a rhythmic counterbalance to the lively chatter that so often fills the room. Once they set to work, the stylists spark up new conversations as they spread smoothing elixirs such as Alterna’s bamboo shampoo across scalps or prep strands for cuts and coloring treatments with Paul Mitchell’s keratin-infused serums. Just a few yards away but entirely removed from the bustle on the salon floor, the spa’s aestheticians hide evidence of aging or membership in underground mud-wrestling leagues with PCA skincare products and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.
The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
Esthetician Sherri calls upon 13 years of complexion-revamping experience in her spa, where she deploys pharmaceutical-grade products that work at the cellular level.

Sherri carries Yon-Ka, Image Skincare, GlyMed Plus, and NuFace lines, which are only available from licensed physicians or surgeon generals that have been greeted with a secret handshake. Through her sophisticated services?which include facials, microdermabrasions, body waxings, and chemical peels?Sherri helps educate clients about the proper ways to care for their skin.
Expansive windows flood the room with sunlight at Exclusives Salon & Spa, where stylist Katie Horting creates her own glowing looks with haircuts for women, men, and kids. But cutting isn't the only skill in Katie's arsenal; she also mixes and applies hair dye to bolster locks with pops of color. For special occasions such as weddings, Katie can curl and twist hair into updos that resemble busts of the bride and groom.
