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.
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. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. 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.
Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.
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.
Studio Suites at Reflections' licensed cosmetologists share more than 35 years of experience between them. Erica Tanniehill specializes in nail grooming and hair services, while Valerie Fails focuses on hair health and is well versed in bi-racial styling and working with hair textures of all sorts.

With an emphasis on sanitation and sterilization, they also perform pedicures and manicures, and can wax away unwanted fuzz from brows, lips, chins, and most sweaters.
At The Beauty Clinic MedSpa, medically supervised aestheticians help clients attain their ideal appearance through a range of face and body services. Staff members undergo in-depth training to help visitors select the high-end products from derma e, DermOrganic, and Fake Bake to best suit their complexions. A slate of facials resurface skin with the help of microdermabrasions and natural enzymes, and eyelash extensions, laser hair removal, and permanent makeup leave a longer-lasting elegance than the beauty mark chiseled into Mount Rushmore.
