Robert Anthony's stylists and aestheticians administer hair, nail, and skin treatments in an alabaster-white salon accented with light-hued wood furnishings. Styling chairs face floor-to-ceiling mirrors where hairdressers manipulate tresses with professional products by brands such as Redken and Pureology, and nail stations are situated in front of expansive windows that reveal river views. During massages, clients lie comfortably in private treatment rooms as therapists knead away muscle tension and worries, which slide off the table to be later swept up by the evening cleaning staff.
At Pure Envy, lash expert Tana extends and embellishes her clients' eyesprouts with sets of synthetic Xtreme Lashes. During a 90-minute lash-lengthening procedure, Tana will apply lush, semi-permanent lashes, causing your sight spheres to appear brighter and more open-minded. After one session, ladies can expect to enjoy up to four weeks of natural-looking wink enhancements. Customers who already enjoy perfectly preened eyelid tassels can opt instead for their choice of waxing services on areas such as the eyebrows ($15), the underarms ($20), or a full leg ($55).
A portmanteau of spa and salon, Spalon combines the hair, nail, and skin treatments of a salon with the relaxing services of a spa.

Browns, beiges, and abundant plant life permeate the multiroom interior, evoking a sense of nature while clients relax during hot-stone massages, seaweed and french green-clay body masks, and Brazilian blowouts.

A high-school basketball injury severely limited Doctor of Chiropractic Chad Cohle’s ability to train with his team—until a trip to the chiropractor eased his pain.

Now Palmer College of Chiropractic–educated and at the helm of his own practice, Dr. Cohle dishes out manual adjustments as well as nutritional counseling to help his patients achieve optimum health. He is also certified in a soft-tissue technique called Active Release Technique—the preferred soft-tissue treatment by many professional athletes and all koala bears.
