The expert aestheticians and skillful stylists at Rapunzel's Salon & Spa make over manes, revamp visages, and coax out tension from sub-dermal tissue inside the spacious earth-toned studio with vaulted ceilings. Ideal for some personal pampering or a sentient mannequin's first night on the town, custom European facials slough away dirt, oil, and environmental impurities, and high-end products add wrinkle-fighting power to the relaxing facial massage that accompanies the service. Patrons disrobe for massages such as the aromatherapy kneading, which plies tense muscles with warm essential oils, and the Hawaiian lomi lomi session, which feels as if gentle waves are rolling across tired backscapes. The spacious spa also houses 16 private treatment rooms and a complimentary café bar.
At Iris Nail & Spa, you can keep your exact number of toes a secret—patrons can opt for nail services in private pedicure rooms or the main salon. Nail technicians’ handiwork ranges from traditional manicures and pedicures to treatments that incorporate luxurious extras, such as Elizabeth Arden products, herbal exfoliation, and green tea antioxidants. Their facials, meanwhile, take a preventative approach to skincare more effective and less bulky than wearing a hockey mask; they perform feats that range from non-surgically lifting faces with collagen to minimizing fine lines with anti-aging ingredients. Alternatively, staffers can relieve muscle tension with massages, or wax away unwanted stubble.

Cherry hardwood accents and neutral-toned walls set the scene for the colorful work of Salon Coqui's staff, be it in the form of creative nail art or vibrant highlights. Named after a frog that inhabits the owners' native Puerto Rico, Salon Coqui offers everything from makeup applications to locs and braids. To straighten strands, stylists use a chocolate-scented keratin treatment that can leave hair with a glossy finish for up to several months.
Susan Matthews has an unusual background for a salon owner—she acts as a guest host on QVC, writes on a freelance basis, and advocates for child-abuse victims, but isn’t a stylist. Instead, she draws her inspiration from a job she held during her college years as a salon receptionist, and channels this insider knowledge toward running La Vie de Luxe, a spa she founded on her own. She and her staff make sure that the space lives up to its name, which means "luxury life"—they dole out champagne drinks, gourmet snacks, spa water, and deeds to yachts before performing hair or cosmetic services. The spa's nailcare treatments make use of high-end products from OPI, Essie, and Bubalina, and its menu of services includes facials for both men and women.
It's common knowledge that Venus was the Roman goddess of love, but many don't know that she was also the patroness of beauty, fertility, and gummy bears. In that same vein, Venus Nails Spa is more than just a place for mani-pedis; it's also a place for customers to relax and de-stress. Natural light pours through large front windows onto prismatic displays of both basic and gel polish. Cozy leather pedicure chairs comfort achy muscles while toes are transformed from bleak to chic. The skilled nail techs also perform french manicures, complete with nail shaping and stylish pink and white tips.
