One look around Seidou Salon Spa tells clients what level of luxury they can expect to find there. From the mounted flat-screen TV that hangs in front of the black leather styling chairs to the porcelain footbaths that squat at the foot of two padded pedicure thrones, the setting suggests a dedication to pampering rarely seen outside of an Olympic cooing match. The private treatment rooms where massages take place even feature a corner tub, in which clients can indulge in hydrotherapy treatments that either relieve soreness with camphor or soften skin with mango, lime, and aloe.

The center's treatments range in nature from clinical to holistic, sometimes incorporating solutions of lactic or salicylic acid?chemical peels?and sometimes favoring Eastern healing methods?acupuncture and chakra-balancing massages. As an Aveda salon, Seidou Salon Spa has access to popular hair-color and conditioning products, and it upholds this standard by also carrying nail polish from OPI, skin creams from PCA Skin, and appointment books made of recycled newspaper clippings of the first moon landing.

When Lori Scharmann founded Hair Proz Salon in 1991, she didn't expect it to become the institution it is today. More than 20 years and a new partner later, the salon's staff comprises many of the original stylists present at its opening, and they draw on those decades of experience when performing each of the salon's varied services. They revamp both men and women's looks with a lineup ranging from facials and manicures to haircuts and full-coloring treatments. To keep their transformation skills current, all stylists undergo continuing education classes and sit down for regular interviews with the most innovative 'dos. They carry products from brands such as Skinceuticals, Moroccanoil, and OPI to help clients maintain their new looks outside the salon.

Guests at Bay Salon & Boutique are greeted with snacks and complimentary beverages before stylists turn their full attention to crafting a creative look for the client. This kind of pampering is the norm even for clients just stopping in for a monthly trim. No matter the occasion, guests are feted with organic coffee and gourmet desserts as they chew on an idea for a new look. In the chair, heads are tended to with Aveda and Pureology products that deeply condition locks and are the only way to remove most types of confetti.

Style transformations continue in the boutique, which displays dramatic necklaces, sleek clutches, and cozy scarves made by local and national designers. Those who don?t wear their purchases out of the store get them gift wrapped for free.
