Before Lisa Jones-Butz opened her own salon, she graduated from the University of Baltimore, studied art history in Europe, and attended styling school. She went on to become a Wella educator, training new stylists at seminars and assisting seasoned pros at national shows. When she isn't cohosting a monthly makeover segment on FOX45 or writing a beauty and style column for Harford's Heart magazine, Lisa curates artwork and crops locks at Subtle Rebellion, her boutique salon and art gallery.

Amid plain white walls, wooden floors, and modern track lighting, underexposed artists display their paintings, sculptures, and jewelry. This art inspires stylists such as Megan Little, who specializes in edgy cuts and multidimensional color, and Raphael Rocca, who often studies new hair trends with L'Oréal in New York, to turn listless locks into fashion-forward masterpieces with products by Moroccanoil, L'Oréal, and Redken. When they aren't cutting and tinting strands these hair artists smooth tendrils with keratin treatments and mold manes for photo shoots, weddings, and trips to the car wash.

Back in the 1960s, beauty was so simple that some beauty parlors—like the nine traditional ones run by Robert Andrew Zupko—only had one service: roller sets. But beauty trends began to change, so Zupko changed right along with them, adding skincare and nailcare to his hairstyling business. When 1996 hit the calendars, the salon evolved into a full-fledged day spa that covered 7,000 square feet.

Zupko has since created Robert Andrew – The Salon & Spa, a 22,000-square-foot Tuscan-style getaway nestled in the giant scalene triangle that connects D.C., Annapolis, and Baltimore. Inside the salon, more than 90 beauty professionals—including nail technicians, massage therapists, and stylists—shape and polish nails, snip split ends, and disentangle achy muscle knots. The salon also boasts a troupe of Yon-Ka trained aestheticians who remove dead skin cells with pumpkin enzymes and melt away frozen funny faces with hot-stone facials.

More recently, Zupko opened Robert Andrew Medical Spa, where the spotlight's on lasers, injectables, chemical peels, and other high-tech skincare services.

The bounty of hues to pick from—including cocoa, caramel, cappuccino, and mocha—make it hard to pick the most attractive skin-bronzing shade at Glow – The Bronzing Studio. In this tanning mecca, experienced airbrush artists shower skin with droplets of 100% organic tanning spray, which are tailored to the client’s original skin tone and the timing of events such as weddings, photo shoots, and vacations on the surface of the sun. Tanning beds emanate UVA and UVB rays to cultivate color, and red-light-therapy pods swathe the body in crimson rays that may boost circulation and counteract stress, helping the body activate adenosine triphosphate, a naturally occurring compound that may help liberate energy from muscles.

Hollywood Tans, one of the nation’s largest chains of tanning salons, turns dermises gold with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. Skin specialists consider each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping them choose the perfect skin-shading procedure. Four clean and comfortable types of stand-up UV tanning-booth options filter out most pestiferous UVB rays while speedily darkening pigment. Pricing varies, but five 11-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth ($30) are enough to leave any pelt polished with a glossy base tan. For Daphnes fleeing Apollo, a Mystic spray-tan booth (starting at $19) depales pasty parchment with a misty coat of bronze that can last 5–7 days. The Mystic’s cartridges can be changed to allow users great flexibility in choosing their preferred skin patinas, or they can be purchased in bottle form for do-it-yourself home applications (starting at $19). A plethora of lotion is available to give your skin a longer lasting hue and moisturize your dermis until it's a glowing beacon of hydrated human hide.

Each barber station boasts its own plasma-screen TV framed by dark wood cabinetry.

Parting Your Hair: For the Right Look, Choose the Left

An important part of any hairstyle is knowing where to part it. Check out Groupon's guide to help you tell the stylist how you want to look.

Beyond keeping hair out of your eyes or providing easy access to your brain's escape hatch, the way you part your hair can reflect how the world perceives you?and how you perceive yourself. How to part it depends largely on the shape of your face. Here are a few basic guidelines to finding the right method:

Heart: With their wider cheekbones and glowing foreheads, heart-shaped faces radiate with either a side or diagonal part. However, if you have longer hair, a middle part may help to balance out your prominent cheeks.

Square: The trick with a square-shaped face is to soften its features. A deep-side part or diagonal part allows hair to fall gently over any sharp angles, rounding them out. In this case, it?s best to begin the part right above the arch of one eyebrow.

Circle: A slightly diagonal part that stretches from the middle of the forehead to the back of the hair lends a dramatic curtain effect to circle-shaped faces, enhancing and elongating the features on the side with the greater exposure.

Oval: Oval-shaped faces have it toughest of all, since they're doomed to be able to pull off any look they want. The choices are virtually infinite. Part it down the middle or down either side. Don?t part it at all. Part it six times?the world is your oyster cracker. However, many stylists would recommend a middle part, since side parts already suit the shapes above.

The decision of where to part the hair, however, isn't completely cosmetic. Some people theorize, for example, that a left part indicates someone with strong leadership skills. This theory earned some cred during the 2000 U.S. presidential election, when left-parting George W. Bush defeated right-parting Al Gore. Even comic books lend it some credence, as the unassuming Clark Kent switches his part from the right to the left when he becomes the all-powerful Superman. Still, it could be just a coincidence?many successful leaders part their hair on the right or not at all, and either way, the decision is not always up for debate; a cowlick, for instance, is nearly impossible to tame, often forcing you to adapt your style to suit it.

Whichever part you choose, heed these words: even if the person you see in the mirror seems meek, the world may still see you as powerful. As posited in an episode of NPR's Radiolab, humans tend to favor the version of themselves they see in the mirror, but others will always see them as the opposite image. Our perception of ourselves is inherently flawed. Therefore, if you like the way your hair looks parted to the left, you may want to actually part it to the right, even?and perhaps especially?if it looks strange in the mirror.
