Whether you seek a safe snip or a bold new 'do, the experienced stylists of sweetly retro Starlite Salon, which is outfitted with knick-knacks and mid-century modern furnishings, use their punk-rock pin-up sensibilities to craft the choicest of cuts. Women's follicular brambles and unbecoming outgrowths can be pruned into a well-manicured headbush ($35–$45). With expert coloring services, dull mop-tops lose their dishwater hue and take on a Skittle-like spectrum or simply a richer natural-looking palette (includes haircut, $85–$120). Those who prefer wax to straight razor can have face hairs forcibly removed with Starlite's waxing services ($10). Starlite also welcomes gentlemen into the confines of its frosting-pink walls to trim down and shape up a manly mane ($20–$25) before an important bodybuilding competition, hunting trip, or viewing of Steel Magnolias.

Sun Spa’s waxing wizard Tristen Soltero and her crew of highly trained depilitators can wax away dermis wool and cutis coppice with two Brazilian sessions (a $50 value each). Once your bikini region is so Brazilian that your hips can speak passable Portuguese to one another, you’ll achieve a pelvic thrust that really drives them insane in time for a summer’s worth of Rocky Horror Picture Show midnight screenings.
