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.
Lift Hair Studio is a Paul Mitchell Focus salon that pampers and prettifies hair with a plethora of services. Reshape underloved head helmets with a cut ($40+ for women, $25+ for men), flatten out frizzy follicles with an ironworks flatiron styling ($35+), or Technicolor your tresses in one of Paul Mitchell's sexy shades of refracted light (single-process color, $65+). A partial foil highlight ($70+) brings much-needed dimension to a world of flat screens, razor-thin phones, and steam-rolled cartoon characters. The top-coat clear shine ($50+) leaves your locks as luminous as a radioactive angel. Customers can also pamper themselves for a night on the town with a blow out ($25+) or conceal the fact that their hair is not a natural anime-blue with a root touchup ($55+).

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.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Elmhurst Dental Suite's signature service is the dental implant procedure performed by Dr. Kayhan Civelek. Implants can be placed as single or multiple units depending on the number of missing teeth. In order to have a successful dental implant, sinus augmentation or ridge modification may be necessary.

These pre-implant procedures have been shown to greatly improve appearance and increase chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.

Beauty Palace is an oasis far removed from the stressors of everyday life. Here, clients can indulge in spirit-reviving massages or facials or revamp their appearances with haircuts and manicures. Facials begin with a professional consultation and include a nourishing round of exfoliation as well as extractions and a massage, which leave skin looking radiant and feeling supple. Massage therapists relay tranquility down to the shoulders, backs, and limbs with Swedish and hot-stone massages. While spirits are rekindled, stylists wait on hand to craft fashionable haircuts and emblazon them with youthful colors. Tanning, waxing, and nailcare services round out the cosmetic upgrades that leave the body and mind in the same state of bliss.
Taking care of your skin not only imbues it with a youthful glow, but can also lessen the need for other costly beauty regimens. At Evergreen Beauty Salon, aestheticians eschew invasive treatments for soothing, nutrient-rich facials that even skin tone, diminish blemishes, and slough away dull skin cells to reveal new layers in Technicolor. Besides facials, the staff also performs slimming body wraps, mani-pedis, and waxing services. These treatments take place in a calming space, whose private treatment rooms are marked by pastel-green walls and whose reception area is brightened by shelves full of nourishing products for sale.
