Though Tranquility Day Spa's menu of organic facials and massages lives up to its name, its airy rooms, brightly colored walls, and printed textiles set an invigorating mood. Inside the hardwood-floored space, professionally trained aestheticians brighten faces with their own Tranquility Boutique organic facial line, as well as photostimulate stagnant skin cells with the LED pulse of a Revitalight facial. In addition to skincare, they work to revitalize molting spirit animals with aromatherapy, raindrop therapy, reiki, massages, and body wraps, often with the aid of essential oils, Dead Sea mud, and herbs.
At Chrissy's Hair Salon, Chrissy and her team use products from brands such as Rusk and Joico to offer cuts, foils, corrective hair coloring, and smoothing treatments. These master colorists and experienced stylists take special pride in their consultations. They meet with customers to assess their complexions, making sure to match hair colors with facial tones and accounting for the current season and fashion. This approach results in eye-catching 'dos that correctly frame clients' faces and stop dream thieves in their tracks.
Owner Alicia Ryan has always lived and breathed beauty. "I think it all began back with the Barbie dolls," she laughs. She comes by it honestly: "Most of the females in my family are all cosmetologists." Her salon includes six styling areas, where a team of stylists specializes in Keratin Complex hair-smoothing treatments. Sheltered from the open salon, Alicia offers Dermalogica facials, body treatments, and subversive antifrizz pamphlets in a private treatment room.
Areté's staff of beautifying specialists pampers customers from widow's peak to big toe with a full assortment of salon services. Haircuts for men ($20) and women ($35) tame stray strands after stylists consult patrons about whether to shape hairdos into trendy new styles or fully functioning birds' nests. Feather extensions with tinsel ($20+) imbue manes with the radiance of a fireproof phoenix, and waxing services ($8+) sculpt overgrown keratin patches. A spa pedicure ($45) tidies up digits, preparing feet for glass-slipper fittings or high-pressure auditions to play hands in a Broadway play. Areté eases the experience of waiting by occupying guests with complimentary WiFi access and television.
Gloss & Glamour primps and primes faces and bodies into refreshing displays of mirth and health amid warmly lit treatment rooms.

Wrapped into this package are a face, neck, and hand massage.
