All salon service providers are not created equal. That's why Drew James Aveda
Salon Spa enlists only Aveda Institute graduates, putting them through an advanced training program before making them work their way up a three-tier ranking system. This emphasis on high-quality staff?coupled with an exclusive selection of plant-based Aveda products?lures clients in for services ranging from basic haircuts to thermal straightening to rosemary-mint body wraps. The salon and spa also adds special touches to many of its treatments, including a complimentary stress-relieving scalp treatment and makeup touchup with each hair service. Both locations feature a wall of mirrors and trendy styling chairs, as well as Aveda tea for clients to sip on while thumbing through style portfolios or folding magazines into swans somehow.
Lured in by her love of fashion, Hair Studio and Spa's cofounder, Zobeida Parra, left her job managing educational services for the more fulfilling call of salon life. She surrounds herself with experienced hairstylists and aestheticians who beautify visitors during salon and spa services, including hair coloring, keratin treatments, facials, waxing, and nailcare. Salon transformations unfold under the track lighting of Parra’s studio, where stylists work at stations outfitted with tall mirrors enclosed by the dark wood frames of Paul Bunyan's old eyeglasses.
The qualified staff at Heaven & Earth revitalize smile mantels with a slew of all-natural facials performed with Repechage Beauty From the Sea products. Patrons can take a skin-smoothing sabbatical with the European rehydrating facial, which removes dull skin cells and unnaturally bright milk mustaches to reveal younger-looking skin. During the 60-minute façade-coddling session, an affable aesthetician also infuses neck toppers with a hydrating splash of antioxidant-rich botanicals that protect and rehydrate faces.
At Sugar & Spice Girls Glam Spa, girls get to masquerade as mom without rifling through her makeup case.

The age-appropriate spa services also include hairstyling, massage, and spa parties for girls between the ages of 3 and 16.
The friendly aestheticians at Nailz 2 See & More have created a one-stop shop for beauty needs, including facials, waxing, and hairstyling. After their clients treat hands and feet with mani-pedis, which can be augmented with soothing paraffin dips, they can stop by the shop to stock up on beauty products and accessories.
