Massage therapists, nail technicians, and aestheticians form the task force at Zeka Salon & Spa. Their mission: to help their clients look and feel their best. This may sound simple, but the team takes great care to ensure that every spa visit is a memorably relaxing one. Whether you're winding down with a massage in a dimly lit room or chatting with the technician as she carefully applies mink lashes, you'll never feel out of your element—that is, unless you want to. The stylists can drastically change your look with haircuts, highlights, and perms, making it easier to stop strangers in their tracks but harder to convince your mother that it's still you.
Studio Salon stylists Amanda and Miceala work hair magic that doesn't break the bank. All haircuts include a complimentary shampoo and style, and services such as deep-conditioning, glaze, and chlorine treatments are discounted when purchased as part of a package. Relaxers and keratin treatments leave locks shiny and smooth, whereas highlights or ombre color add depth to 'dos. They can also volumize hair with tape-in or microbead extensions and prep guests for important events with special-occasion hair and makeup.
Chop it Up Barbershop's seasoned shearers creatively prune all variety of head topiaries while refereeing intelligent chatter about everything from sports to politics. During a luxurious 30-minute trim, locks bask under clippers’ trendsetting radiance, escaping the taxing responsibility of shielding scalps from sunbeams and wigs in search of a place to roost. Burst free from the shackles of shouted bar-side anecdotes and the Chinese fingertraps of crowded billiards halls to challenge a buddy at the central pool table. The clack of spheres gently weaves through Chop It Up Barbershop's open space, complete with hardwood floors and dynamically designed black and white walls.
Even from the first step inside Chau Bella Salon & Spa, it’s hard not to feel like you’ve entered a different world. That’s because every single surface is pure white, from the welcome counter and floors to the white cabinetry and chairs, all the way up to the shimmering chandelier that lights it all. Perhaps it’s all meant to suggest the purification that takes place inside, which includes facials that cleanse the skin and signature massages that clear the mind. Or maybe the bright-white decor is a subtle nod to the spa’s popularity with brides, who trust the salon to apply their makeup, style their hair, and, when the salon gets out of grad school and the time is right, propose.
Zara Beauty and Spa's clients don't need to hop in an airplane to get Eastern-inspired beauty treatments. Instead, they can walk into Zara's soothing confines, where the staff has mastered a wide range of intricate services, many involving natural herbs and ingredients. Staff members can decorate hands with traditional henna tattoos, pluck stray eyebrows with threading services, and incorporate gold-infused products in Ayurvedic-style facials. The spa also offers more contemporary services such as skin peels or microdermabrasions, as opposed to manicures set to techno music.
