Walker's Apothecary owner and licensed aesthetician Shalea Walker and her team of mug mollycoddlers swathe skin in a proprietary line of products and services that have adorned various celebrity visages. A 60-minute spa manicure (a $25 value) and pedicure (a $50 value) clips and files nails into chic alignment before coating each digit cap in a fresh coat of vibrant paint. Rough feet transform into velvety leg ends with a rejuvenating callus treatment, as hand and foot moisture masks are applied to act out a hydrating kabuki play for bodily extremities. Inspired by already pampered paws, faces can opt to call a chronological timeout with a 65-minute anti-aging facial customized to skin type. Exfoliating dead skin cells and renewing facial canvasses with the aid of a moisturizing vitamin C mask, the textural transformation gets an additional boost from a glycolic peel specialized for dry, hyperpigmented skin, removing dull, human-husk build-up and restoring your face to the glowing neck fruit it was always meant to be.
"Are you ready to exhale?" According to management, this saying encapsulates the astonished feeling clients experience as they see their new look.

Not to be outdone, the staff also excels at flattering haircuts and fashion-forward styles such as perms.

Shampoo JC Hair Salon's stylists draw inspiration from art, music and fashion. Thanks to the artful eyes of the new owners, also of Shampoo Avenue B in NYC, the beauty haven's decor would be right at home in a gallery or record shop. The walls display a rotating selection of local artwork, which might include a collection of old albums, or paintings inspired by rock 'n' roll. It's enough to make clients forget they're inside a hair salon, until they glance in the mirror and see their new 'do. The reflection may reveal ombre highlights, sleek blowouts, asymmetrical cuts—or a style so classic that clients will wonder if the shop's hair dryers are some sort of time machine. The savvy staff specializes in a wide range of snipped fashions, as well as treatments such as keratin and Brazilian blowouts.
