Brows and lashes, welcome to your happy place. It's called Lush Threading & Spa, and it's home to a team of spa technicians who specialize in everything from brow tinting to eyelash extensions.

Like its name suggests, True Colors Salon helps clients express themselves through vibrant hair color. Stylist Grace Smolin is particularly adamant about finding the perfect color for a client's skin tone and eye shade because she always wants hair to look as natural as possible. This might mean blending chocolate highlights—never platinum—into brunette hair to add dimension and even leaving a blond's roots a little darker to make it look like she was born with that color. Grace also creates modern cuts and straightens hair with keratin treatments, which can keep hair frizz-free for up to five months.
