Newly opened last November, Salon Ciera has cultivated a menu of services designed to both beautify and relax. From hairstyling to four types of facial, the skilled staff works hand in hand with clients to personalize each service. Trained massage therapists also call the space home, doling out multiple treatments that strive to relieve back pain, as well as more unconventional stress such as sinus headaches and mouth pain caused by TMJ disorders. Salon Ciera's decor welcomes guests with turquoise and floral-patterned walls, private-treatment rooms, and an absence of hungry trolls guarding the building's entrance.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.

The pampering professionals at Studio des Amis inspire beauty and relaxation with an array hair and facial waxing services. During a studio cut for women ($35+), men ($18+), or children ($20+), skilled stylists scrub, trim, and style unruly manes.

Lauren Hunt at Hair Works Salon's hair services twirl tendrils and snip split ends into fashion-forward 'dos.
