Nava's Hair Studio's Facebook page reads like a beauty magazine, offering tips on such things as how to prevent hair from frizzing in the summer (keep hair properly hydrated so it won't absorb moisture in the air and swell) and how to build volume at the crown while keeping the rest of the hair sleek (apply mousse roots to ends, put hair in a ponytail on the top of your head, release when dry). The page is so informative because Nava's head stylist and owner, Ofelia, has been working in the industry for more than 20 years. Plus, she constantly travels the country seeking advanced knowledge on such things as how to cut hair based on facial structure and how to hide a third eye with dramatic bangs.
At her studio, Ofelia and her team of stylists keep locks looking spiffy with face-flattering cuts, Brazilian blowouts, and highlights and lowlights. They also beautify clients with waxing services and lash and brow tints.
Lounging amid the salon's robin's-egg blue walls, guests undergo full-on makeovers via 3-D nail designs and cut and color treatments. One Touch of Paradise is also a multicultural salon, which means that each stylist is an expert in all hair types, regardless of color or texture.

Certified massage therapist Timothy E. Marable tailors his custom massages to each clients particular muscular issues. However, his kneads don't only help dissolve these aches—they can also boost circulation, diffuse stress, and increase flexibility. For an added touch of luxury, Timothy can incorporate spa-like extras into his sessions, such as scented oil or an exfoliating milk-and-honey scrub.
