The massage therapists here seek to foster their clients' overall health, and they do that with a wide slate of massages that address any number of physical and emotional complaints. To that end, their techniques range from Swedish massage?a general relaxation massage?to deep-tissue massage?which focuses on relieving specific points of tension or injury incurred while trying to bench-press your childhood home. Other modalities include prenatal and hot-stone massage, as well as reflexology treatments, and they augment treatments with luxurious add-ons such as citrus hand treatments and aromatherapeutic scalp massages.
Tom Fuentes, the owner and head stylist of Tom Fuentes Salon, learned the ropes while attending the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London. But his passion for the trade motivates him to regularly update his skills by practicing new hairstyles on his household ficus and taking continuing-education courses. This instruction included a seven-class series led by Angel del Solar, one of the hairstylists to the stars who attended the Academy Awards in 2008. At his salon, Tom performs women’s and men’s haircuts, coloring services, and texturizing treatments.

For clients with curly hair, trips to Synergy Hair Salon don't inspire anxiety. That's because the stylists specialize in cutting, de-frizzing, straightening, and caring for curly manes. The salon has an on-staff stylist who trained at the Deva Curl Institute in NYC. This allows her to not only provide cuts customized to spiraling hair, but also instruct her clients in the proper care of curls. For clients who want to change things up, the staff can smooth hair with thermal hair straightening treatments. They can even perm naturally-straight hair into perfect spirals to give hair a light, bouncy texture. No matter what style customers walk out with, stylists infuse hair with an extra dose of healthy oils with their products made with vegan nutrients. These help moisturize hair so that it is protected from the elements without wearing a plastic cap or always driving in the direction away from the rain.
