The Divine Touch Salon offers treatments that coalesce corrective therapies with holistic modalities. Many of the salon's skincare methods, however, incorporate high-tech products in place of plant-based ones so that clients see results. The multivitamin power exfoliator facial fights fine lines, dryness, and roughly textured skin with a concentrated blend of vitamins A, C, and E, a much better way to remove dead skin cells than by rubbing one’s face in the corduroy jacket of a passersby.
To prepare skin for detoxification, an aesthetician massages it with essential oils. Then, the body is tightly wrapped in heated, herb-soaked linens. Though soothing scents fill the air, the detoxifying herbal body wrap at The Divine Touch Salon doesn’t just help clients relax; the two-hour treatment can inspire weight loss and even decrease the appearance of cellulite. The salon also performs facial lifts, waxing, makeup applications, and at-home services.
As guests approach the check-in counter at Top Coat Nails & Beauty Lounge, they’re greeted by a receptionist standing beneath two beaded chandeliers. Then it’s on to selecting 1 of more than 300 available shades of nail polish. During application, clients snuggle into two-toned massage chairs as a technician pampers and paints their nails. In addition to mani-pedis, the intimate spot offers spa services such as permanent-makeup application, eyelash extensions, and massages.
This studio keeps a certain peace when it comes to the battle of the sexes—at least when competing for salon chairs. Stylists and barbers ferry each gender to separate areas of the studio—one side boasts a modern salon, the other lays claim to a barbershop. But no matter where clients sit, they receive the same level of attention. Stylists fashion women’s hair into desired looks with cuts, color, and ornate origami folds. Barbers, meanwhile, put the finishing touch on men’s appearances with straight edge hot lather shaves or beard and mustache trims.

Mon Sanctuaire’s all white décor and relaxing spa treatments restore a sense of serenity to the overworked and stressed. In the treatment rooms, white walls and white curtains surround patrons lying on soft white sheets, waiting for a massage session to release tension resulting from typing at a desk all day and hauling a mattress into the treehouse every night. Guests might also relax here while an aesthetician performs a facial using Institute Esthederm products to restore balance, tighten skin, or fade wrinkles. Body-care sessions such as reflexology or mud wraps with scalp massages further calm the senses.
