Salon V's stylists tame unruly manes with keratin treatments and add to nature's handiwork with permanent and clip-on human hair extensions. They can also skillfully correct color mistakes, such as over-processed color and unflattering tints. Aestheticians pamper guests with massages, facials, waxing, and spray tanning. The bridal crew, which is comprised of stylists and certified makeup artists, artfully preps ladies for graceful, elegant, and traditional backflips down the aisle. The salon also features a boutique with headpieces, veils, and accessories for the big day.
After gliding over glistening wooden floors supporting chic, modern fixtures, licensed aesthetician Najia Rohlf and her team greet guests in need of custom skin revitalization. In the first phase of the 60-minute European facial, a staff member cleanses pores and dusts off skin detritus. Extraction follows exfoliation, and then the aesthetician sheathes skin with a mask designed to ward off cheek-pinching aunts. Finally, a moisturizer restores suppleness and vanishes croissant flakes holding on since breakfast. Following treatments, clients can admire their newly radiant visages in nearby storefront windows and crossing guards' suits of armor.
The stylists at Natural Motion Salon do more than just style hair. They work with clients to find a ‘do that takes into account personality, desired look, and face shape, ensuring that when customers leave the salon they look and feel better than when they came in. The stylists deploy their skills in cutting, coloring, and texturizing to achieve this goal, getting everything done in one sitting instead of outsourcing part of the job to the nuns at St. Rapunzel's Convent.

To restore balance to their clients' body and minds, the team at Parapsychology & Wellness Center draws on many disciplines, including reiki therapy, aura purification, and astrology. Staff members also perform many types of readings. For instance, they might use tarot cards to look 6–12 months into the future, draw on numerology to reveal lucky numbers, or administer a character reading to help clients learn more about themselves, like whether or not they can actually lick their elbow.
