When your turn comes, Bolt's barbers will treat your frazzled follicles to the signature Shear Dude service, which aims to improve each cranium's character by drastically reducing its thread count. As you talk sports, sporks, Spocks, and other Y-chromosome-tickling topics, Bolt's careful craftsmen will machete a trail through your rugged head terrain and climb the summit of any widow's peaks with a meticulous flair—leaving all domesticated Vikings feeling confident, clear-headed, and free of excess facial frondescence.
Soleil Beauty Salon founder and aesthetician Alina Karoyan draws on 25-years of experience and a background in biology. She named her salon Soleil?which means "sun"?as a nod toward the star's nourishing and beautifying properties. It should come as no surprise, then, that one of the salon's most popular services is tanning, with options that include cutting-edge tanning booths and airbrush tans that utilize natural ingredients such as DHA and Apollo's tears. Other beauty services range from acne and anti-aging treatments to herbal body wraps and makeup services, and each one is performed using top-of-the-line products hand-selected by Alina after years of extensive research and practice.

Inside Neihulé, a beautifully modern salon awash in all-white decor, you're bound to notice the few splashes of color. Just inside the door, bright shelves display the brilliantly colored labels of Bumble and bumble styling products—the same ones the stylists often use at the hot-pink blow-dry bar. Beyond that, a broad spectrum of nail polishes radiates under a sign for "Dreams by Neihulé"—a line that co-owner Yvonne Neihulé designed herself. She and her team use them alongside specialty polishes for services that range from manicures with custom herbal mixtures to gel pedicures. But it's the spa's experiences that might have the most color. Pedicure chairs reminiscent of space pods have built-in laptops, letting you recreate the feeling of a starfleet captain getting a pedicure, and a stand-up tanning booth keeps the body cool with a shroud of crisp, quiet air.
