Creations Salon owner Lynnell Darby leads a staff of experienced stylists in cutting, coloring, and coiffing tresses with acclaimed salon products that include Paul Mitchell and Pureology.

Led by Dr. Grace Kwon Hong, SkinRenew Laser Medical Center’s physician-only team unearths youthful countenances and helps to maintain overall skin strength.

Despite its name, NT Nails does more than beautify hands and feet with manicures and pedicures. Amidst its nail services such as shellac manicures, acrylic tips, and paraffin hand treatments, another beautifying service abounds, though it may not be as visible as shiny red fingernails. NT Nails' detox foot spa introduces clients to the ionic foot detox, which soaks feet in an ion foot bath. The bath coaxes out stored-up toxins and helps to restore energy and balance while clearing up skin issues and calming the mind.
