As its name implies, Beyond Salon & Spa plays host to more hair and body treatments than one might expect. When they aren’t cropping hair into styles that bring out their clients’ best features, stylists tame frizz with keratin treatments, add permanent waves, and straighten strands with a special Japanese relaxer. Massage therapists similarly draw on Japanese influences during shiatsu and reiki massages, both of which aim to balance the body’s internal energies and promote self-healing. After purging toxins and unflattering chunks of marble during a body-sculpting treatment, clients can head to the nail technician for a relaxing mani-pedi.
Kids often take after their parents, and Armin Khavari is no exception. After growing up watching his parents run a beauty business, it seemed only natural for him to use his own experience and found Armin Salon-Spa. Alongside a group of skilled stylists, Armin clips and reshapes hair into trendy forms, colors locks with bold new hues, and conditions strands. On the spa side, massage therapists knead away stress, nail technicians retouch hands and feet, and aestheticians restore skin's youthful vitality and original shrink wrap.

With today's Groupon tucked beneath a headband, partake in the polish this palace of pulchritude has to offer and select two of the following corporeal services. Highlight a dull noodle nest ($45+ value), or retouch the whole kit and kaboodle for $40. A mani-pedi counts as one treatment, cleaning up your keratin collectors for $30. Absolve yourself of that overgrown pompadour with a haircut and blow-dry (starting at $50), or indulge in the Brazilian keratin treatment, a popular method of silkification that smoothes frayed head-threads into a long-lasting state of smoothness. The keratin treatment normally ranges between $150 and $300, depending on the amount of hair on a given noggin. Hair thickness and length raise the price of both the Brazilian keratin treatment and highlights.
Products from high-end brands such as Morrocanoil, Global Keratin, and Schwarzkopf fuel the haircare services at Nelly's Spa Hair & Beauty.

Sara Manis created Beauty Essence as a one-stop shop for beauty services. From basic pedicures to spellbinding prom hairstyles, her salon strove to meet its clients' each and every whim. Not one to sit idly, she soon added 10 new stylists and nail technicians in order to let guests choose from a wider selection of experts. Today, the salon's range of specialties has expanded to include hairstyling and coloring, updos, manicures, spa pedicures, and waxing on a service menu complete enough to refine clients getting ready for either a night out on the town or a night at home sitting in a gold-plated La-Z-Boy.
