Inside Dynasty Salon, an elegant chandelier slings glistening beams of light off large, rectangular mirrors, which start at the floor and stretch better than halfway toward the ceiling. Next to those mirrors, black-and-white portraits of starlets hang from cherry-red walls, and work stations sit packed with numerous beauty products and tools. This is where the Dynasty Salon team goes to work, rejuvenating the appearances of its clients with an arsenal of services that includes haircuts, colors, and eyebrow maintenance. They spruce up nails, too, with mani-pedis and shellac nail polishes.
At In Bloom Tanning, American Tanning Institute–certified employees help customers to achieve deep bronze glows with a mélange of tanning services. Featuring four levels of tanning beds and a domesticated solar flare, In Bloom’s luxurious Ergoline, Wolff, and MegaSun beds offer customers of every skin type a range of UV tanning options. For a sunless treatment, expert techs coat skin with a DHA-based formula. Unlike the plot of a documentary observing grass grow, spray tans develop quickly, providing a sun-kissed glimmer in as little as 15 minutes.
Splashes of red, slate gray, and black pop up in Taina Salon?s modern decor, which surrounds visitors as stylists artfully refresh their locks. After a sudsy shampoo, a bout of styling, cutting, and coloring services inspires brand-new looks to perch atop heads. The hair experts also administer scalp treatments designed to nourish strands and just-sprouted hats from the very moment they appear.
Brazilian Keratin Treatments are a long-lasting, relaxer-free method of eliminating frizz and making hair smooth, shiny, and easy to style. Using a complex formula with the main ingredient keratin (the protein that makes up hair) and applications of an extremely hot iron, the stylists at Demi Salon will goop your frizz and then iron it into oblivion, leaving each filament of your cuticle-covered follicular filaments infused with natural hair proteins—smoother, silkier, and as shiny as Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize. Also exactly like Al Gore's Peace Prize, Keratin-treated hair must be coddled for a few days, lest kinks and crimps form as the treatment sets, and should be washed with sulfate- and sodium chloride-free shampoos to lengthen the effects. With proper care, a Brazilian Keratin Treatment can last up to a few months, allowing you to meet an entirely new group of friends and trick them into thinking your hair never looked like Dustin Diamond's. Additionally, Demi Salon's streamlined studio, fitted with handsome hardwood floors and an open airy layout, makes it an ideal spot for streamlining your mane and adopting a new, less frazzled alter ego.

The top-coat clear shine ($50+) leaves your locks as luminous as a radioactive angel.
