Inside Hair We Go Studio, stylists stand ready to take manes from mundane to chichi, always keeping an eye towards hair health. Products by René Furterer swathe strands in plant extracts and essential oils, while ammonia-free Artego color creates new hues that are gentler on strands and friendlier to the lungs. To help each scalp unwind, stylists treat heads to a relaxing massage that helps banish stress and soothe tension caused by wearing lead-lined hats, while smoothing keratin treatments help tame wild manes and straighten out locks with long-lasting results.
Showcased on Access Hollywood and the faces of various celebrities, Sylk Cosmetics’ highly pigmented gel can be smoothed over lips, cheeks, and eyelids. Makeup artists custom blend each concoction by hand in the studio, drawing on a buffet-like spread of colorful, all-natural powders to tailor hues to individual clients’ coloring. Visitors can also enhance their visages with long-lasting liner, moisturizing lipstick, and entire color palettes from the house brand—as well as creations from third parties such as Lilac Cosmetics and DeLa Cosmetics. The beautifying effects of their products are visible on the studio’s Wall of Glam, a photo collage of clients at real-world events next to a bunch of bricks slathered in lipstick.
Once Upon a Fairy Tale helps little princesses look the part for one special day. When girls enter the studio, they are treated like royalty from the first minute. They can enjoy makeovers and transform their looks with tutus, gowns, tiaras, and a dusting of makeup. Photo shoots immortalize girls’ time as fairy princesses, and little ladies can take home custom tutu dresses at the end of their VIP, Fairy Princess, or Tutu Cute makeovers. Dress-up tea-time sessions give parents and kids an elegant way to spend time together, and birthday parties give girls opportunities to play in a shared world of imagination without needing to fall down a rabbit hole.

Unlike many massage therapists, Hands To You Wellness Studio owner Zina Sanders incorporates holistic healing elements into her treatments to provide additional therapeutic and stress-relieving benefits. Traditional Thai massages take place on floor mats so their yoga-like stretches can be more easily achieved, and integrative reflexology treatments focus exclusively on pinpoints throughout the body to improve balance and circulation and locate the body’s “eject” button. Since graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage in 1996, Zina has continued to broaden her skills by pursuing ongoing education at various seminars and workshops.
Arrica Ashe, current owner of Plush The Salon, bought the well-known salon with a mind to add an element of luxury to the quality hair and nail services](http://gr.pn/HVGVbH) its customers enjoyed. Indulgent details now suffuse every treatment, including deep oil conditioners and restorative masks that stylists massage into hair during cut-and-color hair sessions. The salon's smoothing services include high-quality relaxers and keratin treatments that iron out frizzed strands to achieve hair as shiny as a middle child's only soccer trophy. Behind the nail station at the salon, the technician slathers hands and feet with natural nailcare products, including the signature lemon-infused moisturizer and exfoliating sugar used in the spa pedicure, and the oil and warm-lotion baths found in the waterless manicure.
