At the newly renovated Salon Nevaeh, stylists trim and shape head fringe into fashionable coifs. Women ($27–$38) and men ($25) enjoy masterful haircuts after thoroughly consulting with their stylist about their ideal look and which local politician is the dreamiest. Spin strands of gold or auburn into locks with a full or partial color ($51+), or defuzz hirsute supraorbital ridges with an eyebrow waxing ($15). Craggy appendages can also get reshaped and polished with a manicure ($18) or pedicure ($40), and special-occasion updos ($45+) render flat manes bouffant for more ergonomic pie eating. Every trained hair whisperer at Salon Nevaeh constantly updates her repertoire of beautifying methods, ensuring that all services are performed with the latest techniques.
The aestheticians at The Face Place know that different faces have different skincare needs. That’s why they design each of their facials with an audience in mind—they have a smoker’s facial for smokers, an anti-aging facial for adults advanced in years, a teen facial for adolescents, and a European facial for turncoats. Along with facials, the staff offers a full menu of health and beauty services that includes body treatments, waxing services, and makeup applications. And, to round out the mix of wellness services, they have a clinical hypnotherapist who performs hypnosis to help clients conquer phobias, improve self-confidence, or release stress.
Tina Cummings mans a studio inside of Salon Lofts, where she keeps herself busy working as a master hairstylist and color specialist.

Beauty professionals run their own private studios at Salon Lofts, and among the crowd is Alyssa Smith, a talented hairstylist and makeup artist eager to help clients look and feel their very best. The friendly cut and color expert draws upon her continual education and an arsenal of Paul Mitchell products to revamp the coifs of men and women and the rainbow wigs of aspiring clowns. She snips off split ends, adds shine and dimension with foil highlights, or simply retouches or corrects dull color. Following a consultation, she can literally fuse Fusion hair extensions to short strands, using either a hot or cold bond to add floor-sweeping length for up to six months. Tresses aside, Alyssa dolls up eyes and lips with full makeup applications and solves brow and mustache conundrums with facial waxing.
