Sungum Salon's skincare professionals rejuvenate epidermises with treatments culled from time-honored methods and resources such as ancient Indian therapeutic techniques and Ayurvedic herbs. Their face-care services range from microdermabrasion and facial masks to steams and glycolic peels, whose ingredients—naturally extracted sugar cane, sugar beets, and raw grapes—exfoliate skin while diminishing wrinkles and acne scars. For the rest of the body, an exotic fruit or oatmeal-honey scrub exfoliates skin more effectively than lining your trousers with coarse-grain sandpaper. Sungum Salon's full-body treatments also include a seaweed-and-French-clay wrap, which infuses skin with nutrients, and henna sessions that adorn hands, feet, or backs with temporary ornate designs.
At Mona's Spa, the focus is on the skin. The aestheticians here use advanced techniques such as microdermabrasion and AHA and BHA peels to help rid faces of wrinkles, age spots, and dry patches. Clients can also receive shellac manicures and spa pedicures complete with foot soaks, masks, and hot towels.
Marble statues and opulent light fixtures surround the pedicure chairs at Hollywood Nail & Spa, which could make clients feel as though they are getting their piggies pampered in the foyer of a Tuscan villa. The technicians here groom cuticles, artfully shape nails, and remove traces of cheese puff dust from fingers before applying coats of colorful polish or clear lacquers. Manicures leave hands silky smooth, while pedicures soften rough patches and calluses.
Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch.

Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Although the stylists at Crisp Salon are seasoned professionals, each one is also a student. That's because they receive ongoing training with Aveda salon educators to keep their hair, nail, and makeup services right on the cusp of fashion. Stylists apply their up-to-date knowledge to deliver chip-free Shellac manicures, frizz-defying Brazilian blowouts, and makeovers with Aveda cosmetics. The environmentally friendly makeup line crafts bold colors and natural shades with non-petroleum minerals, natural botanicals, and a rainbow's leftover bathwater.
