Surrounded by suffuse lighting and adorned with exotic bamboo, Tips & Toes' immaculate spa enhances feet and fingers with expert techniques and acclaimed nail products. During the gel manicure ($45 value), extremity experts will soak delicate skin mittens before shaping nails, caring for cuticles, and moisturizing skin. Finger-crowns will be draped in a choice of Gelish or Shellac polish selected from a multitude of colors, each of which is durable and allows unflagging phalanges to quickly return to regular high-fiving, back-scratching, and volcano-climbing duties.
Journey beyond the wood furniture and rich auburn floors of Touch of Class Medspa & Laser Center and into the private chamber of Premier Skincare Solutions, and you'll encounter skin expert Anamaria Saenz. From her tranquil studio, Anamaria wields a gentle hand and advanced technology to both brighten skin and slim down bodies. For her signature facial, she performs a thorough skin analysis to determine which techniques and products will best suit her clients' skin, then pairs her purifying approach with a neck and shoulder massage. She also offers cutting-edge treatments ranging from chemical peels to the stem-cell facial, which incorporates a micro needle roller to boost cell renewal and restore the skin's elasticity.
For the rest of the body, Anamaria offers three tiers of silhouette-slimming technology. Her Body Sculpt wraps expel toxins to help banish fat and firm the skin, and her infrared body wraps up the ante by infusing clients with detoxifying beams of infrared light. For even more noticeable results, Anamaria's clients turn to cavitation liposuction, which breaks up fat cells with ultrasonic energy, leaving them to be swept out through the body's lymphatic system. Whatever the treatment, Anamaria takes time to explain the procedure and recommend after-care regimens to ensure clients know how to get the best results from their service.
Skin makes sense to Avant Esthetics Skin Solutions founder Alina Karoyan. Not only is she a master aesthetician with almost two decades of experience, but she's also a biologist. She combines her study of skincare serums and treatments with her study of science to tackle skin issues including rosacea, acne, and fine lines.
During the Ultrasonic facial, she employs the titular device to deliver vibrations that boost blood circulation and whisk away dead skin cells. She tones skin with the help of LED lights during signature facials and unclogs pores with peels during acne-clarifying facials. Alina also removes unwanted hair with waxing services and helps clients burn calories with infrared detox and slimming treatments, which is a more effective calorie-burning method than setting donuts on fire.
At Beauty by Marina, steady-handed professional makeup artist and eyebrow-shaping specialist Marina enhances clients’ natural features with artistic daytime and evening looks for weddings and other special occasions.

Inside DeLuxe Salon's retro-chic beauty shop, owner Gregory Moncuré and his team of beauty experts accent clients' signature styles with hair, makeup, and skin services. A professional makeup artist and licensed aesthetician, Moncuré applies his 18 years of experience in the beauty industry to services including eyelash extensions. Kevin Murphy products strengthen and moisturize hair during haircut and color services, further enhancing the appeal of manes recently gelled into an upright exclamation point. Deep-cleansing facials reveal rejuvenated mugs with exfoliating scrubs and toners, and Moncuré performs expert sculpting jobs on shaggy eyebrows, turning unruly tufts of brow hair into well-defined shapes.
Stylist Shawnna Tajyar of Zen Lashess is dedicated to making her clients’ lashes look lusher. To that end, she attaches single strands of Xtreme Lashes synthetic extensions to their individual eyelashes using medical-grade adhesive. The resulting fringe can both emphasize eyes and swat away the sandman during boring office meetings. Clients pick from three levels of extensions: up to 50, 80, or 100 lashes per eye. The menu of services also includes full-body waxing, organic spray tanning, and makeup applications.
