The professional stylists at Knockouts aim to give guys the best possible grooming experience as they spruce up scalps and cosset weary bodies in a sports-themed men’s salon that has been featured on the Today show and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch on CNBC. As guests sip ice-cold beers or other beverages and watch a game on flat-screen TVs, stylists sculpt sleek, fashionable looks with the salon’s signature six-step Heavyweight haircut. While the stylists shampoo hair or trim beards, aestheticians wax backs and chests or refurbish rugged skin with facials and hand treatments.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade.

All of European Wax Center's waxing services are performed using the center's exclusive hard wax. This wax, made in Paris from pure, all-natural beeswax, is designed to evict even the toughest tuft, while caressing skin as gently as a feather tickling a feather. During a full face wax, water-wick your skin with friendly follicle extraction on the cheeks, chin, upper lip, nose, front of neck, and side burns, creating a smooth canvas to highlight artfully arched brows. Or opt for the women's or men's full arm wax, which wipes out wool from shoulders to knuckles, finally displaying treasure map tattoos long hidden by fuzz.
Over the past decade, Rivaz Salons has expanded to four locations where certified beauty professionals enhance natural beauty amid Indian-inspired accoutrements. Stylists update manes with haircuts, highlights, and color, and aestheticians accentuate looks with flare lashes and Shahnaz facials. Massage therapists perform traditional Indian massages with Ayurvedic oils, and trained specialists shape brows with a process known as threading. Three artists from India apply natural plant pigments to the skin as they design henna tattoos, which are said to attract joy and luck. When staffers aren't equipping clients for everyday beauty, they offer bridal packages for both traditional western and Indian weddings.
