Odyssey Salon and Spa pampers patrons with friendly, personal care in a relaxing environment. Each member of the spa's staff has been trained in the most advanced techniques of the industry, ensuring a soothing and rejuvenating treatment based on knowledge and skill rather than unpredictable magical incantations. Customers can choose from a number of whisker-wiping waxing options, from the chin ($15) to the toes ($20) to a full bikini or facial wax ($35), helping them effectively shed their winter coats in anticipation of the summer's warm weather, beach trips, and Slip 'N Slide commutes to work. Hair havers can also focus on their head-top topiaries with a complete deep-conditioning treatment ($45). Follicular stress is alleviated with a 10-minute scalp massage complemented by a wash and style, leaving hair free of tangles, angst, and lost car keys.
Bonnie Fissella co-founded Jill and Bonnie's Electrolysis almost 25 years ago as a way to help clients overcome body-hair issues. As her success grew, she expanded into the permanent-makeup field, and founded The Finished Line. Not content to stop there, she finally added Disappearing Ink, which focuses primarily on laser tattoo removal. Today, Bonnie's three business ventures may fulfill different aesthetic concerns, but they share a single goal: to boost the self-confidence of clients by using advanced equipment to help the skin look beautiful.
Bonnie offers laser hair removal and electrolysis on many parts of the body, and adorns eyes, lips, and eyebrows with permanent cosmetics that remove the time-consuming work it takes to look made-up. Throw in tattoo removal by lasers and you have a regimen of services designed to minimize unflattering features and draw attention to the others, like your gorgeous, gorgeous ear lobes. On top of all that, Bonnie also recently acquired intense pulse light equipment, which helps diminish issues such as rosacea, acne, and age spots.
Although Luxe's stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians dedicate themselves to soothing and pampering clients, green business practices remain one of their highest priorities. They seek out organic skincare and haircare product lines for their shelves and utilize eco-friendly tricks to reduce their waste and pollutant production. This ecological sensibility lends even more of a contemporary air to the 5,000-square-foot spa, with its modern, armchair-like wash stations, Italian-designed spa equipment, and holographic receptionist. The menu of services at Luxe is far-reaching and even includes a "just for men" section; among other things, the staff can style tresses, massage overstressed muscles, and rejuvenate faces with vitamin- and antioxidant-rich skincare products.
Before hitting the salon floor, students at American Beauty Academy first complete a regimen of classroom coursework and hands-on training on models and Barbie dolls caught in the wild. It's only then, under the watchful eye of instructor supervisors, that they're set free to show off their newly acquired hair, skin, and nail care skills to clients. Available services include not only women's hairstyling, but also color, chemical treatments, and men's barbering.
The Lashe Diva knows that the eyes are the key to expressiveness, conveying everything from subtle affection for a crush to sinister motives for that last serving of flan.

To further draw out the eyes’ beauty, The Lashe Diva also offers brow shaping and tweezing.
