Almost as long as the list of ingredients that Simply Green Day Spa?s organic nail polishes include is the list of common polish chemicals that they don?t. The colorful hues from SpaRitual and Butter London eschew DBA, toluene, formaldehyde, parabens, and phtalates?and none were tested on animals. By using products such as these, Simply Green simultaneously nurtures both its clients and the environment. While nail technicians wield the nontoxic polishes and acetone-free polish remover, augmenting mani-pedis with sugar and salt scrubs and hot-stone massages, skincare experts turn to natural facial treatments. Antioxidants from blueberries and vitamin C set to work on blemishes along with exfoliation, masks, and steam, which helps patrons clear their clogged pores without trying to suck out dirt with a Shop-Vac. All skincare treatments are performed using Organic Philosophy, Natural and Organic Skin Care, and Eminence Organic products, which are all made using organic ingredients, such as fruit pulp, plants, and spices.

Simply Green Day Spa?s staff also eases aches and stress with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages. After a thorough coddling, waxing specialists banish leg hair or evict unwanted fuzz from the face, leaving patrons completely made over. Setting the stage for these transformations, Simply Green?s decor lives up to its name?s other meaning with plush green armchairs arranged amid sage-green walls, a rock fountain, and sweeping white curtains.

At Isis Skin & Body, medical director Dr. Noha Aboelata grants her patients' desires for beauty with a gentle touch, exclusively performing noninvasive rejuvenation treatments that employ the latest advancements in aesthetic upkeep. The practice is split between laser-based and topical therapies that both remediate existing problems and stimulate of the body's natural healing mechanisms.

Lasers earn their keep and daily continental breakfasts with work in three principle areas: routing unwanted hair, healing nail fungus, and helping to firm and smooth contours all over the body. To ensure topical treatments are safe for all skin types, Dr. Aboelata handpicks the products used in each service, which range from custom acne-scar treatments to eight types of chemical peels. Online forms dotting the company's website encourage curious visitors to start their restorative journey with a free analysis by identifying their skin and body concerns from a list that will help the staff to suggest a fitting course of treatment.

In tribute to its eponymous Egyptian goddess, the white and gold spa takes rich decorating cues from ancient palace-inspired aesthetics and the advice of style-blogging mummies. Columns capped with gold lotuses rise up to the entry hall's high ceiling, and gilded folding screens backdrop chaise lounges covered in bolts of lustrous, eggshell-colored cloth.

Rockridge Day Spa employs as many vegan and organic products as possible. These naturally derived palliatives aid the aestheticians as they design personalized facials that manage to hydrate, improve skin tone, or simply restore a youthful glow around the cheekbones. Body scrubs leave the skin soft and radiant by using everything from brown sugar and honey to antioxidant-rich strawberries and fizzy sparkling wine to exfoliate the topmost layers. Similarly, the spa's chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions use more advanced approaches as they conceal the appearance of wrinkles and pigmented blemishes.

While sipping on a cup of tea, clients can dangle their toes over pedicure bowls and enjoy a thoroughly indulgent nail treatment that pampers the feet with mineral soaks and gentle massages. The spa's massage therapist indulges visitors even more by using a personalized blend of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to soothe aching muscle and relieve the chronic pains caused by sleeping in a bathtub full of marbles.

The floor-to-ceiling front window at Topps Salon Day Spa lets in natural sunlight that bounces off the pale-yellow walls and light wooden floors. Upon entering the airy salon, guests see shelves full of pink, purple, and green Pureology bottles—with a few products by American Crew and Framesi sprinkled in—as well as a counter with complimentary coffee. A row of six styling chair lies to the left, where staff draw on their certifications and training in Brazilian Blowout, Vidal Sassoon, and Framesi to revamp hair.

In the day spa, aestheticians wax away unwanted hair and rejuvenate skin with facials for both men and women, while massage therapists relieve aches with Swedish and shiatsu massages. Nail technicians contribute manicures and pedicures topped off with OPI polish, or create nail art recreating each scene from the Bayeux Tapestry.

When 17 Jewels Salon + Spa owner Julie Stevens noticed the inscription “17 jewels” on her late grandfather’s watch, she knew she’d found the perfect name for her salon. The term refers to the jewels—typically synthetic rubies—used to craft mechanical watches that help reduce friction in the internal mechanism, resulting in precise and dependable timekeeping, even in a black hole. Not only was it a catchy name, it also stood for reliability, an ideal she hoped to bring to her salon.

Today, Julie and her team live up to that ideal with a full line of salon and spa services that beauty clients time and again using products from Kevin.Murphy, ilike Organic Skin Care, and other professional brands. All services are performed in a salon festooned with murals of bright-red flowers, a nod to Julie’s other lifelong passion: art.
