Studio 31 Salons creates classic looks with contemporary touches. Stylists keep scalps and manes classically beautiful with conditioning, restructuring, dry-scalp, and clarifying treatments. Then they shear timelessly chic cuts and add shine with glaze, or they may get more creative with pink ombre or chunky copper highlights that imitate the abstract paintings adorning the salon's robin’s-egg blue walls. In addition to hair services, the staff applies permanent eyeliner, lip liner, and eyebrow makeup and offers sessions in a tanning bed to top off revamped visages.
In the midst of rustic woods, there sits a three-story building. Upon opening its front door, visitors unleash a gentle wave of aromatherapy scents and warm air. They step inside, where therapists lead them past wood accents and into private treatment rooms. World of Serenity’s spa atmosphere recalls the calm of the surrounding wilderness, and inside its walls, therapists adopt a holistic approach; they educate guests in wellness basics, such as why humans don’t eat sand, and perform a range of customized spa services. They soften faces, deep-cleanse pores, and slough of dead cells during customized facials; sometimes scouring or soothing the skin with an additional enzyme deep cleanse, warm stones, or anti-aging collagen. They also ease muscle tension with six massage modalities such as deep tissue, warm stone, and reflexology; and scrub clients from head to toe using salt and sugar rubs, and wraps made from natural dead sea mud or Paradisius—a blend of ground fruit and flower extracts.

In addition to aesthetic treatments, VenusKardia offers numerous health screenings, including those for abdominal aortic aneurysms, peripheral artery disease, strokes, and cardiovascular age.
Nestled in historic Dublin, bare s.k.i.n. day spa is manned by an experienced staff that performs a range of skincare and muscle-relaxing treatments. Inside, guests receive custom skin recommendations based on their circumstances. Aestheticians rely on Éminence Organic Skin Care products and dōTerra essential oils as they soften and tone skin with organic fruit- and vegetable-extract facials, and fruit pulp or blueberry peels that detoxify and slough off dead skin.
Licensed massage therapist Cathy Kline performs relaxation and deep-tissue massages, and certified reflexologist Karen Brown kneads hands and feet during reflexology sessions. Staff members can also organize spa parties, during which groups of visitors let their hair down while therapists perform spa services from an a la carte menu.
