At Sain Visage, visitors can choose from a wide variety of facials, massages, and body treatments that effectively shed stress and dispel voodoo hexes. A 60-minute oxygen facial ($95) enhances blood circulation and rejuvenates skin, while a 40-minute express-treatment facial ($60) includes a light exfoliation, massage, and finishing mask. If you need to relieve tension while on break from the Pop–Tart factory, allow your muscles to become sweet fruit-purée beneath the hands of an expert therapist during a 30-minute de-stressor massage ($50). Or play hookey and languish your relaxation time with a 60-minute Swedish massage ($85), which uses long and smooth strokes with gentle to medium pressure. Body treatments exfoliate fleshoskeletons with services such as the 50-minute salt-glo body scrub ($80) that uses natural salts to polish the skin like a cellophane-wrapped Ferrari. Patrons can kick back and soak in the relaxing atmosphere and striking décor that features soothing lighting, soft tones, and comfy furnishings.

Anthony Capalino spent 14 years working on Newbury Street as a stylist in two salons: Pini Swissa and Runway Salon. But since opening his own salon?which features ample parking space, to boot?he still maintains ties with clients from his former salons, beyond sending them the occasional chain letter. Their loyalty is likely due to his artistic dedication to hair: He approaches each haircut like a layered sculpture, following the head's contours to create a natural shape that flatters each client's face. Beyond cuts, he tames frizz and curls with keratin treatments, pumps up volume and length with hair extensions, and adds dimension color and highlights. While Anthony and his stylists work, track lighting illuminates white chairs and walls accented by pops of orange, creating an ambiance as modern as the hairstyles they create.
