The specialized staff at Salon Stewart helps clients keep up appearances and muscle-morale with hair and massage services. After a swift style consultation kicks off an hour-long cut and style, the precise snips of the stylist’s well-trained scissors and the gentle breath of the blow-dryer can frame noggins with sleek strands that bounce, shimmy, or tickle enemies on command. Alternatively, opt to pick from the salon’s smorgasbord of hair services—hair-owners can transform texture with a permanent wave ($80+) or change ponytail hues with two-toned highlights ($90+). Stylists can also prep coiffures for glam-rock bar mitzvahs or red-carpet PowerPoint presentations with special-occasion styling ($60+).

VIP's keratin-based Brazilian blowout safely secures silky smooth strands without harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde.

Committed to holistic healing techniques, the licensed aestheticians at Somata Spa cool and soothe visages plagued by environmental impurities with a Signature Facelift facial. A tangoing band of herbal extracts uplifts tired skin using cucumber, chamomile, and aloe to reduce redness and inflammation caused by pollutants and live-porcupine loofahs. The facial is beneficial to all skin types, though it offers a particularly refreshing drink of hydration to sensitive and dry skin. Somata Spa utilizes green-conscious Image Skincare products created without animal testing, petrochemicals, or parabens.
Sakora Salon & Day Spa carefully cleanses hair with the plants, flowers, and other natural ingredients hiding deep inside Aveda products. After conferring with customers to determine the perfect plan of action, the expert stylists treat weary necks and scalps to a massage, wash hair, and blow-dry strands, then start sculpting and styling each lock to breathe new life into the empty shell of an old hairdo. Sakora's bold red and pale yellow walls create a pleasant contrast that inspires hair to gracefully accept its new style, and the salon's interior presentation of tropical plants, candles, and sleek furniture keeps jittery follicles calm throughout the haircare procedure.
