Women leave Millie's Fitness transformed. That's due to its commitment to empowering women with life-changing habits and a motivating community. It offers fitness classes such as Zumba and belly dancing that focus on cardio endurance through lively dance moves.

The team at Stunners n Smashers Spalon operates under the mantra that not everyone’s hair is the same. So they make sure to begin each appointment with a thorough consultation in order to determine the best style for each individual client. From there, the team of stylists is capable of most anything: beyond cut and color treatments (including color correction) they can manipulate texture with Pravana and Brazilian blowouts, or create length with extensions and witchcraft. They also apply faux hair in six ways, including via heat-free protein bonds, braiding, or sewing.
Owner Carol Carey regularly travels to London, Paris, and Milan to snatch up the latest in beauty trends and techniques which she quickly totes back to her salon, a chic beauty haven boasting a lengthy menu of hair, skin, and nail services. Bound by a strong culture of creativity, the dedicated staff of experienced stylists, manicurists, aestheticians, and massage therapists consult with clients to determine their aesthetic needs. They then carefully and skillfully execute the requested service, from anti-aging facials to hydrating manicures.
A reflection of Manhattan-style lofts can be seen in the spacious salon’s exposed-brick walls, high-vaulted ceilings, and suspended hair dryers, each an element that Carey fell in love with while studying hair coloring in New York. The contemporary retreat also boasts a row of European-style shampoo bowls, which give stylists 360 degree access to suds up manes with shampoo and Perrier, while advanced hair dryers blow-out heat from three angles for a faster processing time.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rex Moulton-Barrett and his staff of hair whisperers use Sciton laser beams to smooth bewhiskered skins. In three sessions of small-area laser hair removal (a $107/treatment value), the laser's pulsating light heats the inside of hair follicles until their own melanin destroys them, much as lion tamers are destroyed by their own love of practical jokes. Small areas eligible for liberation from follicle tyranny include the chin, eyebrows and forehead, underarms, sideburns, back of the neck, upper lip, and standard bikini line.
Stylist Scala thrives on her artistic skills. She artfully cuts new hairdos, from blunt bangs to sweeping layers. She swaddles strands in new monochromatic hues and eye-popping highlights. She also expertly tackles frizz and flyaways by treating hair with keratin-express treatments.
According to Cara Mia's licensed aestheticians, the average woman spends about 15 minutes a day applying makeup. Over the course of a year that totals more than 91 hours—hours that could have been spent on more important activities such as helping the kids with their homework or turning the dishwasher into a clubhouse. Cara Mia's team helps women save that time with its permanent makeup sessions, where pen machines add long-lasting pigments that help create fuller lashes or smudge-proof lip liners.
Cara Mia's other services enrich clients' skin and bodies in equal measure. Massage therapists soothe achy muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques, and waxing gurus remove unwanted hair from the underarms and Brazilian areas. To enliven epidermises, try a deluxe facial, which includes a deep cleaning, exfoliating mask, massage, and moisturizer.
