Prior to head editing, the expert stylists at Silver Lake Studio consult with each client to determine which hairstyle best suits their face shape, hair texture, and personality. After a titivating trim (a $45 value), a style and blow-dry (a $40 value) gifts noodle nests with a new look culled from a large assortment of hair designs ranging from classic looks to hip 'dos. Guests can opt for the beautiful summer glow of crown highlights ($90) to make a seasonal cosmetic change or to bring out any vocabulary words circumscribing the head.
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.
