The saying "If you want something done right, do it yourself" rings true for for the staff at Sarvanas Beauty—who, unsatisfied with current serums on the market, decided to create their own line of skincare. Sarvanas Mantra combines botanical ingredients with the latest skincare technology, resulting in products that both nourish and improve complexions. These serums may be used in tandem with any number of high-tech services, from microdermabrasions to collagen-boosting ultrasonic treatments. Trained specialists also turn their hand to enhancing natural beauty with eyebrow threading, makeup applications, henna tattoos, and a vast variety of lashes that are customized for each client. The beauty spa has several convenient locations to choose from, all of which maintain a high level of pampering.
Once drivers pull up to the valet canopy at Lusteration Performance Automobile Detailing, their job is done. Owners are free to shop, dine, or watch a movie in the surrounding MacArthur Center mall as skilled detailing technicians lead cars into the garage for a range of interior and exterior packages. Sudsy hand washes eradicate caked-on dirt and old “I Like Ike's Car” bumper stickers, before applying a coat of clear or hard-coat wax to lock in the paint's shine. Inside, after vacuuming carpets, upholstery, and trunks, the crew thoroughly wipes down doorjambs and the dashboard.
The master stylists at Visions Hair Studio beautify ladies and gents with haircuts, color treatments, mani-pedis, waxing, and airbrush-tanning services. Top-quality products by Bö Essentials and L'Oréal fuel each spa or hair treatment, resulting in a more lavish experience than diving into a pool of bonbons. In addition to taming wild manes, the salon helps out a number of animal charities by coordinating donations and hosting adoption programs.
Kut Kings, located across the street from the Chrysler Museum of Art, specializes in ethnic hairstyles for men and women.

Shelves of tanning lotions wrap around walls the color of warm sand in Sun Lounge Tanning’s salon, where friendly staffers foster deeper skin hues with UV-free spray tans and SunDash tanning beds. The boutique’s spray-tanning tent provides privacy for patrons in the care of techs certified by Smart Tan. Inside the warm confines of SunDash lay-down beds and standup capsules, UV light bulbs shine across epidermises to grant golden glows and proof of completed sandcastle-demolition shifts. The shop's knowledgeable crew is always on hand, presiding over color-enhancing lotions and oils, including the product line from the cast of Jersey Shore.
After spending her early years rifling through her mother's makeup bag, owner Martha Sznoluch pursued a career as an aesthetician, working as a skincare adviser for Estée Lauder and a certified laser technician. Drawing on her 13 years of experience in the industry, including postgraduate certifications from The International Dermal Institute in Washington, DC, Martha opened 'Ohana Skincare & Makeup Studio in 2010 to perform services ranging from microdermabrasions to waxing treatments. Martha and her staff wield handpicked skincare products and peels by Skin Therapeutics and Bionet Esthetics when administering custom facials. The expert eyes of the studio's beauty mavens ensure that faces possess the desired natural makeup look in special-occasion makeup sessions, which help a bride's natural beauty shine through showers of rice or an unexpected rain of cornhusks.:m]]
