Tara Colavecchio, the owner of Dragonfly Hair Studio, has a star-studded resume that including tending to the locks of Claudia Schiffer, Rosie O’Donnell, Sigourney Weaver, and Cindy Crawford.

Details Day Spa doesn't just prettify faces; it also fosters community. The spa regularly holds 30-minute public forums during which local medical and dental professionals give brief lectures about a relevant topic in their fields and then answer questions from attendees.
Of course, the forums aren't the only events that Details' staff hosts. At Girls' Nights In, women bring in their makeup and a licensed makeup artist assesses whether the hues work for their skin tone. Then, the makeup whiz teaches them how to apply it and when to chuck it. Outside of special events, everyday à la carte services include facials, body contouring and massage, faux- or real-mink eyelash extensions, and spray tanning.

The certified stylists at Lashful frame eyes with mink lashes to achieve looks ranging from elegant to seductive. Their uncanny attention to detail comes in handy during extension applications, when they meticulously attach each artificial lash to a real one to achieve the most natural look possible. Sensitive eyes need not wince in fear, as the adhesive material with which they apply lashes is specially formulated to not perturb the eye with harsh irritants or teasing optical illusions. The stylists also dip natural lashes in a semipermanent tint that—much like the extensions—gives eyes the glamorous look of freshly applied mascara.
