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.
The Beauty Box Salon's stylists cut hair into springy shapes, but they just as expertly do the opposite. Stylists specialize in hair extensions, lengthening locks with permanent and clip-in strands by brands such as Easihair Pro and Hairdreams. The salon also focuses on wigs and hair replacements. But the team's specialties don't end at faux hair. The Beauty Box Salon is also known for turning clients into natural-looking blondes, without resorting to banana peel extensions. The salon also features a full service blow dry bar, where stylists can turn clients' limp, fizzy hair into smooth, voluminous 'dos in minutes. This diverse range of expertise services earned the salon a recommendation from D Magazine in 2012, as well as features in Allure and Glamour.

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.

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.
Medical director Dr. David Grant hung up his scalpel after nearly 39 years as a plastic surgeon and now devotes his attention to noninvasive techniques of skin conditioning and repair that allow him to take what he feels is a more comprehensive approach to anti-aging. He and his team at Laser Sculpting Center blast away unwanted fat and body hair with an arsenal of lasers and shoo away wrinkles and signs of aging with chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Massages and bodywork techniques leave muscles relaxed and minds destressed, and raindrop therapy soothes the spine with essential oils and heat from hot towels or tiny lightning bolts.
