The manicure begins with a hot spa soak that transitions into a shaping of all 10 or so fingertips. After a scented oil hand and arm massage using a Scrub A Dub’Dub earth salt treatment, clients can put newly polished dukes down and piggies up. Lay back or sit up in a shiatsu massaging chair as feet endure a soothing bath that exfoliates dearly departed dermis and reveals the cuddly side of tough and callous toes. The See Ya Later Alligator chemical peel removes stubborn dry skin from heels, while a nail-shaping, massaging, and shellacking complete the treatment. An aromatic Melt Away massage barrages barricaded neck and shoulder tension with warm towels, a relief balm, and the skilled muscular manipulations of a practiced massage therapist. Newly released toxins flow away from their corporeal source during the 30-minute detox bath, a relaxing foot soak enjoyed in a vibrating, massage chair. Ions generated by the foot bath enter the body, bonding with toxins over coffee and their shared interests, before coaxing them out again through the feet. During the ear candling, a paraffin candle gently draws away wax from its canal enclave, evaporating excess moisture and helping to relieve allergies, migraines, and pain.
Under the watchful eye of a licensed professional, John Amico School of Hair Design's trained cosmetology pupils prove their hair-snipping, shaping, and taming skills with a wide variety of salon services. With the Amino Amplex treatment (a $150–$250 value depending on thickness and length), one of the school's student-stylists de-frizzes damaged hair with a formaldehyde-free formula, straightening and shining locks with an elixir concocted from amino acids and a vial of Rapunzel's tears. The father-and-son-owned cosmetology school teaches its disciples to complete the process in between three and four hours, upon which clients will sport a straighter, more relaxed style for up to three months.

Cosmetologist Nicole loved the look of a natural tan, but wasn’t happy with the damage it could do to skin. Lucky for her, she discovered spray tanning and promptly opened Glam and Glo to provide the skin-safe bronzing service to others. She custom blends her organic solution, taking into consideration each client’s skin tone and envisioned shade of bronze. She then airbrushes the color on by hand to ensure even, full coverage regardless of clients’ existing color or if they're still factory sealed in plastic packaging.
Warm leaf-green walls ascend from a sprawling hardwood floor at Sizzor Trix, where friendly beauty boosters tend to nails and hair in equal measure. The waiting area’s black leather loveseats overlook an immaculate, mirror-lined space where shears snip through men’s and women’s haircuts, and a mani-pedi station renovates digits. Patrons sink into a plush pedicure chair that, unlike those at most conventional salons, comes equipped with a foot-soaking tub not swarming with orphaned jellyfish. With gentle hands and sharp eyes, an expert eyebrow threader excises superfluous strands using the ancient method, less painful than traditional plucking, of tying thin cotton threads through brows to speedily strip foreheads.
