A Cut Beyond International Salon & Spa's experienced staff dresses nails with lasting layers and reinvents tresses with healthy treatments and Paul Mitchell products. Once manicure-seekers settle into a sanitized station, the technician will swaddle digits with an Axxium gel manicure, a light-cured polish that normally lasts for two weeks or more (a $40 value). During the 45-minute service, nail coatings solidify under a heat lamp so no additional dry-time is required and hands can immediately resume operatic finger-puppet enactments. The spa manicure, a 45-minute treatment, covers digit-endings with preservative-free polish and centers around a hand-and-forearm massage that stimulates senses with tea-tree, lavender, and lemongrass essential oils and unlimited high-fives (a $25 value). Further paw maintenance cleans up cuticles, reshapes nails, and extracts peanut-brittle from beneath nail beds.
Electric razors buzz and scissors snip in Burgo's Barbershop, where expert barbers turn shear-shy mops into respectable tops. In addition to tamping down male manes of all kinds, Burgo's treats faces to hot-towel shaves, and trims unkempt beards into dapper designs. The shop also welcomes little gentlemen to sit in its swivel stools for pint-sized haircuts or to sit in meditative silence until their first mustaches appear.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.

Lotus Salon’s color specialists and stylists view each head of hair as a lump of clay ready to be sculpted and modeled. And since no two heads are the same, each finished 'do is unique and client-centric. Apart from their training and experience, stylists focus on how the person beneath the hair interacts with it—their lifestyle, desires, aesthetic preferences—using its texture, personality, and in-grown instruction manual to guide them toward a look that suits the face and person it belongs to. Whether they’re cutting and styling locks, adding doses of Wella Professionals color products, or treating hair with Enjoy vegan and cruelty-free products, they’re able to create looks that are tasteful and entirely tailored.
