Affinity Salon’s tress-tamers boast a backlog of cosmetological certifications to sanction their spread of skull-string-snipping services. Renovate your head threads with a cut and style (starting at $35 for women, $25 for men), or disguise yourself before a law-flouting jaywalking binge with an all-over color treatment (starting at $50). The salon’s mane-wranglers specialize in using Tigi products to smooth and saturate strands with deep-conditioning treatments (starting at $10), and frizz fighters can also opt for the Brazilian blowout, a 90-minute treatment that actually bolsters hair health and lasts up to 12 weeks without using corrosive chemicals ($300).
By helping soothe tense, tightly knotted muscles throughout the body, Shear Art of Massage helps clients focus their thoughts on personal healing and growth. The therapists can use one of two specialized modalities to provide such relief. Long, flowing Swedish strokes target tension near the surface, gently kneading the muscles and promoting a sense of calm and peace. Alternatively, deep-tissue sessions can help by applying a bit more pressure to any knots that the therapist finds lurking beneath the surface or masquerading as a third gallbladder.

A team of specialty licensed educators lead the Crave Beauty Academy, where students master cutting-edge techniques for caring for hair, skin, and nails.

And they address full bodies with soothing body wraps and back facials.
