Becky M. Hogge, a licensed cosmetologist for more than 24 years, sees Urban Escape Salon and Day Spa as a space outside of time. She and her staff view their venue as a sanctuary where clients can recline and recharge before walking back into busy schedules. Managing such an oasis is not as restful as visiting one, however. To update her repertoire of services, Becky attends hair shows and continuing-education classes throughout the year. Her resulting expertise allows her to style all hair types, to imbue strands with fresh color, and to craft formal updos for special occasions. She is also certified in keratin straightening treatments and staunchly believes in the aesthetic value of professional salon products. Formulas from Redken, Pureology, and Bioelements all contribute to her trimming and texturizing appointments.
In addition to haircare, the spa hosts a catalog of relaxing body treatments. Massage techniques range from Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to hot-stone work and reflexology. Nail technicians beautify hands and feet with mani-pedis and paraffin dips, a more professional moisturizing method than wearing lotion-filled mittens. Custom facials, facial waxing, tanning, and makeup applications round out the menu of pampering services.
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.
At Misti Belle’s Hair & Beauty, savvy stylists sculpt and cut hair to complement each client’s unique personality and facial angles. With a specialty in hair coloring, the team members use top-shelf products to bring out rich, natural-looking colors and can inspire hair to become as smooth as Kenny G’s speaking voice with quality keratin-treatment products.

Rita Gregory began wearing acrylic nails in 1982 and continued wearing them for six years. Over this time, they caused severe damage to her natural fingernails. She sought advice at nail salons, but the professionals she asked didn't offer a satisfactory solution—they simply recommended covering up the damage with more artificial nails. So Rita began conducting her own research.
Atir Natural Nail Care is the culmination of her studies; it’s not only a nail salon, but a nail clinic, where technicians strive to educate clients about natural nail care and nail health. Drawing from her research, they smooth cuticles, strengthen fingernails, and moisturize hands. Treatments bridge the gap between health and beauty by utilizing natural ingredients such as tea-tree oil and shea butter, and Zoya and essie natural nail lacquers leave a gleaming shine without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.
