Hairstylist Courtny Ellis’s 26 years of experience have helped him hone his ability to find a flattering cut and color for any client’s face shape and skin tone. The Redken–approved stylist works out of a salon drenched in natural sunlight, which provides the ideal lighting to see the depth of fresh highlights or to help hair to sprout flowery blooms at its ends. In addition to traditional cut and color services, Courtny also alters hair's texture with deep-conditioning treatments.
Past the lush white curtains guarding The Chic Nail Boutique’s storefront window, passersby glimpse a salon space enlivened by black-and-white prints and streaked by sunlight from large windows. Inside, services range from traditional mani-pedis to a signature herbal pedicure that includes an exfoliating sea-salt scrub infused with natural butters and essential oils of lemon, ginger, and peppermint. Acrylic and gel enhancements are also available, creating durable nails able to withstand even the sassiest finger-wags.

Nicknamed Dr. Dre, the lead barber at Hair Repair considers himself a trendsetter.

Guided by a holistic philosophy that traces aches and pains back to an imbalanced life force, staffers at Eden’s Pathway coat physiques in organic products during massages, facials, and natural nail therapies. These treatments not only deliver beautifying results, but also delight the senses—citrus aromas permeate the air during mani-pedis that use lemon creams and scrubs, and chocolate fragrances please nostrils during facials that feature a cleanser, exfoliant, and mask triad imbued with cocoa. Massages range from deep tissue to sports and take place in both individual and couples sessions, so clients can either bring their significant other along or leave them tied to a bike rack outside.
