At Beauty Escape Salon & Spa, stylists with decades of collective experience offer trendy and fresh haircuts and styling treatments. Some specialties here include dimensional and corrective coloring and work with textured or curly hair. Amid floor-to-ceiling Roman pillars and arched entryways, these stylists fashion haircuts and offer coloring and relaxer treatments. Nail technicians, alternatively, dote upon fingers and toes while clients kick back on plush stuffed pedicure chairs and let their feet soak. And massage therapists stand by as well, waiting to relax guests with Swedish, deep-tissue, and aromatherapy massages or by whispering dessert recipes into clients' ears.
Stylist Shannon Allar understands the importance of appearances—especially for attending special occasions. That’s why she travels to events such as weddings and photo shoots to personally coif hair into formal updos and intricate braids or simply sheer away extraneous length. In her studio, she dips into an even deeper well of services, adding vibrancy to hair with highlights and color or smoothing strands with Keratin Complex treatments.

Mane Tamers' hair aficionados have treated stressed tresses with a combination of aesthetic and pampering services for more than a quarter-century. During a thorough headscaping, male and female follicles undergo a scalp-massaging shampoo, which soothes strands while convincing them to confide world-domination schemes and aesthetic ambitions. Then stylists cut cranial carpet to specifications ($35 women/$25 men) before gifting scalps a deep-conditioning treatment ($25) to help imbue locks with a healthy sheen. For women, the one-hour salon stay concludes with an eyebrow shaping ($13), where facial terraformers sculpt eye adornments in accentuating arches, dashes, or lightning bolts. Meanwhile, a grooming package shears ($13) male facial manes to appropriate lengths. Mane Tamers makes up the haircut cost difference with a $10 gift card for the next manly follicle feng shui session.

Looking good isn't the only reward for scheduling an appointment—all hair services are accompanied by a refreshing peppermint warm-towel treatment and a gentle massage for the face and scalp.
