The trained face exfoliators at Michael Francis Salon and Day Spa restore natural beauty and vibrancy to weatherworn skin by cleansing pores and sloughing away dead skin cells. A deep pore cleanser primes the skin, then the enzymatic peel extricates dead skin cells from the clutches of tiny facial hairs and purifies pores. Once the effects of the peel have taken hold, the face-lift mask is applied, returning elasticity to the skin and making it possible to pick locks with the tip of the nose. Customers exit the roughly one-hour procedure with revived, youthful-looking skin. Due to their skin’s sensitivity, Retin-A users cannot receive this service or dish out constructive criticism.
Envy Salon and Spa has assembled a staff of hairstylists, aestheticians, and nail artists so diverse that they can accommodate myriad requests. These range from cutting edge overhauls to classic hairdos or simple refinement, and whatever clients communicate, they'll be met with personal attention and a treatment tailored to their own features and lifestyles. While stylists cut, color, and treat hair in their styling chairs, aestheticians pare down blemishes and reanimate complexions with their classic facials and microdermabrasions. Further cosmetic enhancements are available via lash extensions and makeup, while the hands and feet get their due attention during spa mani-pedis that focus on the nails, skin, and spirit, and leave clients feeling refreshed and ready to charm the gold paint off a scratch-off lotto ticket.
As owner and operator of LockStar Salon, April Conley spends her days researching the latest trends, motivating her staff, and styling and chatting with her clients––and by her account, it’s the greatest job in the world. Amid candelabras and black paisley wallpaper, April and her styling team can transform strands with an elegant scissor cut, hair-smoothing relaxers, or bold color treatments with one of the salon’s Toni & Guy– or Paul Mitchell–trained stylists. Guests may also dip their feet into the salon’s indulgent spa menu, which offers mani-pedis, restorative facials, and soothing aromatherapy bodywork.

The talented, continuously trained staff at Total Look Salon caters to every client’s needs with a range of grooming services backed by a satisfaction guarantee. The Brazilian blowout leaves locks free of frizz for up to 12 weeks and actually improves hair's health, unlike flattening manes with a panini press. The treatment, which lasts about 90 minutes, uses a proprietary potion free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals.
