At Studio 21 Salon and Spa, talon-trimming artisan Donna Ray brings out the best in fingers and toes with a pampering and beautifying 60-minute spa mani-pedi. Donna begins by soaking digits in a relaxing bath, after which she shapes nails and carefully curates cuticles. Next, she soothes away the stress of daily work schedules and nightly bongo competitions with a massage of the hands, forearms, feet, and legs. Then, a warm-towel wrap rejuvenates hooves and melts away any lingering tension. Donna finishes finger and toe canvases with a lustrous lacquer in a choice of colorful hue, determined by a favorite outfit, lipstick, or magic 8 ball answer.
Clark & Co stylists keep track of emerging trends and then apply that knowledge in their salon. Though they are well-equipped to give their clients classic and straightforward bobs and trims, stylists can also create edgier looks with carefully arranged layers, strategic highlights, or texturizing treatments that add dramatic depth and dimension. A variety of professional-grade hair-care products aid them in their styling efforts including the Schwarzkopf Essensity line of ammonia- and paraben-free coloring salves.

Unruly tresses submit to stylists' scissors, foils, and clippers as clients recline in the salon chairs of Cuttin Loose. Nail services pamper appendages with soothing add-ons such as exfoliating salt scrubs or moisturizing dips in paraffin wax, and waxing evicts hairs that have overstayed their welcome while couch-surfing from lips to chins.
A few wisps of smoke from an extinguished candle hang in the air, along with the lingering fragrance of aromatic oils and the soft strains of jazz or nature sounds. One of the licensed massage therapists at Mona Lisa's Massage & Wellness has completed another relaxing session, easing muscle tension and stress with modalities such as hot-stone therapy, pregnancy or sports massage, or reflexology. The center's practitioners operate in an intimate and tranquil four-room suite complete with a mani-pedi station. In the couples room, pairs enjoying a Yin + Yang massage nosh on chocolate-covered strawberries and discuss how to install electric handlebar warmers on a tandem bike.
The crew exfoliates skin with coconut-lime-scented scrubs and detoxifies bodies with wraps that include a session in the steam sauna. They also aim to clear complexions with 10 different anti-aging facial treatments and peels.
Stylist to high-profile politicians and celebrities, Rodney Mitchell draws from years of experience crafting runway coifs and prepping photo-shoot 'dos for well-known names such as Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, and Shania Twain. His expertise is the source of inspiration and knowledge for his team of 17 stylists, whose experience ranges from Paul Mitchell degrees to 20 years of styling experience. Within Rodney's modern rustic salon, guests await top-notch service by lounging in wood chairs, flipping through magazines, and gazing at painted wall art waiting for the day’s lottery numbers to pop into view. The staff summons visitors to individual salon stations in front of large mirrors where stylists trim tresses, add texture with color and highlight services, and tame manes with keratin smoothing treatments.
