The aestheticians at Chen Skin Care and Spa fight blemishes and signs of aging with skincare services backed by products from brands such as Dermalogica, and PCA Skin. Chen's signature facial follows a brief skin analysis and freckle Rorschach test with an organic mask that supplements the results of an exfoliation, extraction, and detoxifying massage. Anti-inflammatory gel and an oatmeal mask sing hymns of hydration to delicate epidermises during the sensitive-skin facial, and male clients neutralize razor burn with the deep pore cleansing of the gentlemen's facial. A full-body aromatherapy massage combines natural herb and flower scents with head-to-toe strokes in order to rebalance the body and mind more effectively than log rolling on an abacus does.
Warmly stained hardwood blankets the floor at Chen Skin Care and Spa, where neutral-toned walls shut out such noisy outside distractions as ringing cell phones and road rage delivered by Morse code. Whimsical sets of bubble-shaped mirrors reflect the graceful shapes of vases sprouting tall grasses and branches.
Though A Touch of Sun Hair & Spa doesn't offer tanning, it still has plenty of reasons for its summery title. At this hair and makeup studio, it’s possible the name was inspired by the staff’s mission to treat each client with warmth and brighten their day by making them look and feel beautiful. The name also reflects the naturally derived products that sprout up throughout the salon; Davines shampoos nourish hair with herbs and flowers, sulfate-free Kevin Murphy styling products implant amino acids and essential oils, and Archipelago Botanicals soften skin with antioxidant-rich pomegranate extracts.
Stylists can transform natural hair or wigs with cut and color services and augment each treatment with extras such as makeup touchups, stress-relief massages, and reanimation hexes for especially lifeless ‘dos. On the spa side of things, aestheticians accentuate facial features with brow and lash tinting and perform waxing services for men and women.

Seafoam green styling stations aren't the only bright aspects of Cira Creation Salon.

As positivity permeates throughout the entire salon, the duo spruces up hairdos with precision cuts, keratin treatments, and coloring services. Their team also includes stylist Nina, who specializes in hair extensions, and nail technician Monica, who softens rough hands with paraffin wax treatments and all-night romantic comedy marathons.
The licensed aesthetician behind BARE by Kristen specializes in making skin hairless and satin-smooth. She deftly removes unwanted strands with organic chocolate hard wax that’s free of plastic-based fillers, preventing issues such as ingrown hairs. She also enforces a high standard of cleanliness, using a brand-new wax stick each time she touches a client’s skin. Although she can skillfully wax hair from brows, underarms, and other regions of the body, she specializes in Brazilian waxing.
