Although they’re greeted by the sound of snipping scissors and the sight of a light-yellow room filled with black leather stylists’ chairs, guests of Natural Image Salon and Day Spa can get much more than just a haircut. In addition to stylists who specialize in creative hair color and keep abreast of the latest trends—such as the feather hair extensions that secret agents use to blend in while spying from trees—Natural Image staffs aestheticians who perform a full range of spa treatments.
These experts dab skin with products made with natural ingredients, relying on botanical plant peels and Swedish body wraps that blend herbs, minerals, and sea clay. As well as pampering skin with Aveda facials and sea-salt-glow exfoliations, the aestheticians render it hairless during waxing sessions. Nail technicians add the final touch to appearances with gel manicures or layers of OPI polish.
Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and Dermalogica bottles line the walls of Hair Central. They're pulled down by licensed barbers and cosmetologists who work with guests to create hairstyles that suit facial features. In addition to hair services, the staff also performs custom facials, as well as nail services with OPI polishes.
Natalie's nail experience spans two decades and countless fingers and toes. Fiberglass nails, Shellac manicures, and spa pedicures are her specialties. Extra pampering includes paraffin wax dips and the application of temporary tips. OPI gel colors are available as well.
At Francesca's Nail Spa, guests are treated to warm conversation and complimentary glasses of wine within a welcoming, home-like space. Francesca also boasts more than 25 years of nailcare experience, so she can supplement these friendly overtures with expert manicures and pedicures. Using professional polishes from such brands as China Glaze and CND Shellac, she can paint on intricate nail designs, outfit fingernails with French tips, and pamper feet with scrubs and bright colors. Acrylic overlays and nail services for men and children round out Francesca's menu of services.
Originally opened under the name West Coast Trendz, The Dollhouse Nail & Beauty Boutique has expanded in both size and scope. What was once a small beauty suite is now a full-service oasis with private treatment rooms, a boutique, and beauticians on hand to care for nails, skin, and bodies. They offer manicure and pedicure treatments as well as spray tans and bath and body products for sale. The boutique upstairs is designed with play in mind; clients are encouraged to mix and match chic clothing and accessories.
With a slew of hair-centric services, Amie Sedlar of PureBeauty aims to gussy up guests, whether they need a quick trim or a hue overhaul.

Additionally, light waxing services are available, such as brow shaping, and lip and chin waxing.
