Victoria Salon's body beautifiers pamper bodies from foot to crown with an array of services performed in a clean, relaxing environment. Armed with Paul Mitchell products, skilled stylists snip off split ends, add layers, and cut foreheads free from thickets of entangling bangs in women's ($55) and men's ($35+) haircuts. Sip on a cup of java or tea and brighten up tarnished locks with highlights (full: $110; partial: $75) or ensure hair stays as soft as a Beanie Baby with a conditioning treatment ($20). Clients can streamline their faces for apple-bobbing season with lip ($15), chin ($15), or cheek ($30) waxing. After tending to above-the-neck areas, treat finger helmets to a manicure ($21) and pedicure ($45) that leave nails sparkling brighter than a set of holiday lights.
Classical sculptures and mirrors create an Old-World atmosphere at Spa Constantine, where spa travelers navigate the lengthy list of spa services to discover treatments that improve health, appearance, and mood. Spa Constantine touts opulent furnishings, from carved wooden benches softened by gilded pillows to tall golden pillars capped by plush greenery. Pedicure stations cradle clients in reclined chairs with whirlpool tubs, and pedicurists use the glow from crystal chandeliers to differentiate toes from dropped grapes or missing glass eyeballs.
Bertuca Salon & Spa is devoted to providing upscale salon and spa services in a low-key, unpretentious environment. The skilled and attentive staff waits in the wings to take you by the hand, foot, or head-growth and ply your surface areas with beautifying treatments. The mani-pedi, which lasts around 45–60 minutes, includes a variety of skin-rejuvenating vitamins, organic oils, and botanical extracts. All products used are 100% natural, with nail polish from OPI for gleaming and glittering finger helmets and toe shells. Alternatively, a Brazilian blowout lasts about 90 American minutes; a skilled stylist will administer the professional, harsh-chemical-free smoothing treatment to transform frayed head threads into a mane of finely woven silk, eliminating frizziness and damage and improving hair health. After the treatment, the hair can still be worn wavy or curly, but will also dry smooth in a fraction of the time it may have taken before. Results last up to 12 weeks with proper maintenance, and after that the treatment simply washes away, returning hair to normal. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
The hairstylists at SuperStar Styling Studio aren't celebrities, but they do know how to make each of their clients feel like one.

Looks are also transformed with quick weaves, which cover locks with a partial wig, and sew-in extensions add immediate volume and length for a natural look that can even trick your long-haired twin into thinking you are her.
