Lavish Looks Salon beautifies women of all ages and cultural backgrounds in its upscale and relaxing atmosphere. The stylists can dramatically change looks with relaxers, sew-in weaves, and hair extensions, or they can renew existing 'dos with color, highlights, and blowouts. At the nail bar, the staff treats guests to long-lasting gel manicures and nourishes nails with silk oil and hot towels. Sea salt, masks, and lotions soothe dry, tired, and cracked feet. But Lavish Looks doesn't just attend to the hair and extremities?the salon also has a makeup artist who can create looks that pop and a waxing technician who removes unwanted hair all over the body.
The stylists at Lily Salon and Spa shower clients with personalized attention when performing a variety of salon services from haircuts to highlights to Brazilian blowouts. They also take care to use only high-quality products when they are adding dimension with color treatments, reducing frizz with Japanese straightening treatments, or transforming manes with special occasion updos.
Virginia Griffin owns Kismet Nails, a hidden gem concerned with sculpting and polishing nails with an expertise that comes from ten years of experience. She coats nails with solid-color shellac or turns each surface into unique works of art that can feature everything from arabesque designs to diamond-studded patterns.
While she generally conducts business from within the salon, Virginia also hits the road for mobile services, meeting clients in homes or offices. She even puts aside entire days to take care of bridal, birthday, or little princess parties, helping clients look their best as they walk down the aisle, grow a year older, or usurp their mothers’ thrones.
Ultra Skin Care’s staffers specialize in all things skin, from facials and microdermabrasion to the application of permanent makeup.

At Fifth Ave Day Spa and Retreat, a menu of hairstyling and spa services offers enough beautifying treatments to last several pamper-filled days. Massages welcome bodies to relax in the soothing strokes of traditional deep-tissue or hot-stone techniques in spacious rooms that may accommodate couples, friends, or teams of tense trapeze artists. VIP spa packages span hours, pampering guests with massages, body treatments, and stints in saunas and steam rooms, and mani-pedis swathe hands and feet in appendage-appropriate extras such as paraffin wax or sea salt. Dermologica facials are highly customized to treat skin conditions ranging from acne to fine lines, and facials engineered specifically for men protect dapper looks with an age-defense treatment made from the concentrated whining of 8-year-olds. Fifth Ave Day Spa and Retreat also hosts spa parties, where up to eight guests enjoy Dermologica facials, massages, and mani-pedis along with relaxing libations and hors d'oeuvres.
