Sunlight streams through tall windows onto Tranquility Spa Salon's commodious facility, where beauty specialists flex their expertise to spiff up clients' appearances. Inside, cushy thrones and domesticated clouds cosset patrons as stylists craft new hairdos, manicurists adorn nails, and massage therapists soothe muscles. Multitalented aestheticians offer a variety of traditional and trendy services, from waxing and facials to lash extensions and chemical peels. Throughout the space, distressed woodwork and rustic wall art exude a shabby-chic aesthetic.
Once you have your Groupon, you can make an appointment with one of The Uptown Hair District's master hair shamans, who know how to snip, dye, and charm even the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Your stylist will sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then carefully snip in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. Your shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($45–$80) is only part of your primping package; you'll also receive a Kerastase restructuring treatment that calms dry, damaged, and rebellious hair with a special soothing serum ($25–$55). Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of careless coiffeurs.
The stylists at Merrill Hair Designers, Inc. strive to heal damaged strands with chlorine- and mineral-removal treatments that restore hair's resilience and shine. Working with a fresh slate, the team can then consult with clients to settle on a new look. For instance, a Brazilian Blowout could smooth out frizz for straighter locks, or extensions can add length more efficiently tying barbells to each strand. To help friends find a flattering cut, clients can even throw a group party complete with pastries and beverages.
The salon also offers nail and spa services, from acne-fighting facials to therapeutic massages. Every skincare package, whether it's an oxygen facial with fruit enzymes or a chemical peel, is highly customized to suit specific skin types.
