Sunlight filters in through Graffiti Hair Studio’s ceiling-high windows, reflecting off polished black shampoo basins that stand out in a space otherwise dominated by light and earthy tones. As stylists escort clients toward the studio’s row of plush salon chairs, their heels click against the hardwood floors, lending a rhythmic counterbalance to the lively chatter that so often fills the room. Once they set to work, the stylists spark up new conversations as they spread smoothing elixirs such as Alterna’s bamboo shampoo across scalps or prep strands for cuts and coloring treatments with Paul Mitchell’s keratin-infused serums. Just a few yards away but entirely removed from the bustle on the salon floor, the spa’s aestheticians hide evidence of aging or membership in underground mud-wrestling leagues with PCA skincare products and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.
Breathe Studio & Spa looks after women's holistic wellbeing with a roster of pampering services including group Pilates and barre-fusion classes, beautifying spa treatments, and alternative wellness therapies.

Staffed by professionals who share Elizabeth's passion for women-focused care, the studio provides women with supportive services to help prepare bodies and minds through all stages of life, from date night waxing services to pregnancy pain-relieving massages to post-natal muscle toning Pilates sessions. Onsite childcare services keep tabs on youngsters as old as eight, which is the age when most children develop their superhuman sprinting abilities.
Facelogic Spa's aestheticians sit clients down in zero-gravity chairs, then revitalize their visages with custom facials. They deliver these refreshing treatments in private rooms awash in shades of sea and sky. The team lavishes skin with products such as Dermalogica, Eminence Organics, and Youngblood mineral makeups, and guests can replenish their home beauty arsenals with wares from the lobby's shelves. Aestheticians customize the steps of eight Elite facials to pinpoint particular trouble zones, and staff members also wax away excess fuzz from women and men alike, leaving skin smoother than James Bond drenched in butter.
Like a wheel hub unifies the spokes of a unicycle, Cirque Salon Studio offers a cooperative facility where stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists can come together from one handsome purpose. Within cozy Studio 205, Christine Lord can be found engineering new face-framing scissor cuts and hydrating tresses with invigorating deep-conditioning treatments. A licensed stylist since 1982, she has spent the last 13 years as a color technician and has taught her aesthetic skills to students all over the country. Clients may solicit both her cutting and coloring services for a total look and to add dimension to tasteless plates of linguine.
The enamel experts at BeachBright Smiles increase the wattage of beaming grins with their signature in-office teeth-whitening treatment. In approximately 20 minutes, the partnership between peroxide gel and LED light works to break up tooth discoloration and stains caused by drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, and eating realistic portraits of bowled fruit. Results can last up to two years with regular brushing and maintenance, and clients can also schedule teeth-whitening parties that accommodate multiple guests at a time.
