Knockouts, a guy-centric salon that's been featured on The Today Show, redefines the modern barbershop by rewarding its clients with sleek, quality cuts. The 25- to 30-minute Heavyweight treatment includes a consultation, before-and-after shampoos, cut, rinse, and styling according to personal preferences or a cutout picture of your favorite Sunday comic. Each weary head will be treated to a scalp massage and one nametag identifying it as "Movie Actor Harrison Ford." Knockouts Haircuts for Men's dècor mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—guests look fresher and more refined when they leave. Complimentary beverages greet the mitts of each client, and flat-screen televisions and high-quality service round out a modern take on the classic barbershop experience.
The aestheticians at The Havens Spa trust the body's ability to heal itself—but a helping hand from time to time doesn't hurt. With that in mind, they design their treatments to engender a holistic well-being and to reawaken those natural healing mechanisms. Whether guests stop by for a body wrap or a radio-frequency-based sculpting treatment, they learn about how their physical make up can effect their moods, behaviors, and motivations. Then, once a basic understanding of cause and effect is established, change for betterment can begin.
In The Havens' red-roofed hacienda, an onsite fitness center with personal trainers helps newly purified patrons keep their bodies in top shape. Those looking to banish stress can avail themselves of tension-melting massage, including gentle Swedish and energetic Thai, while those seeking rejuvenation can draw from a list of facials and beauty injections. And to add a touch of natural calm to any treatment, the spa's surrounding 13 acres provides a place where patrons can rest in the shade, soak in some sunshine, and remember their lawn-dart victories of yesteryear.
