After leaving her homeland of Vietnam nearly 30 years ago, Binh became a hair designer to support her three daughters. By 2006, she had secured the talent and the capital to open Binh's Place—a Paul Mitchell Focus salon where beauty professionals spiff up coifs and soothe the body. At the wash house, stylists nourish manes with shampoos and conditioners that exude essences of lavender and peppermint. Stylists repaint locks at the color bar, adding streaks of color with partial foils or camouflaging gray with oak leaves. In a cozy, private room, Binh's Place's resident massage therapists practice seven different modalities that suit various therapeutic needs. Nail and waxing technicians also do their part to enhance natural beauty, using precise techniques and professional products.
At Advanced Dental Center, dentist Rachel Talis and her team keep smiles healthy and beautiful. Dr. Talis graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, and went on to complete advanced training in areas such as dental implants and the treatment of gum disease. She also performs Zoom! teeth-whitening sessions that erase stains from smoking, drinking coffee, or mistaking a fountain pen for black licorice.
Pure NV Salon & Day Spa keeps Detroit-area minds and muscles mollified with a soothing mosaic of full salon services. A mane-molding menu of hair services keeps locks lopped, styled ($27–$32) and colored ($35 and up), while the one-hour relaxation massage smoothes over bunched-up back dough with gentle kneads and pepperoni slices. The relaxation massage is tailored to every individual’s specific needs, and the value can be used toward a more expensive massage, such as therapeutic or hot stone. The anti-aging facial utilizes a wrinkle-wrangling serum to restore skin's natural moisture and vibrancy, and the spa manicure/spa pedicure combo pampers feet and hands with cuticle treatments, nail filing and polishing, and soothing massages.
Though Macy's is primarily known for its clothing and home decor, the renowned department store is just as adept at feeding its customers as it is at fashionably clothing them.

Hearty, homestyle entrees of oven-baked meatloaf, chicken pot pie, and macaroni and cheese complete the menu.
