Everyone who visits Bella Donna Salon & Spa for hair services gets at least three treatments on the house: a scalp massage, a hand and arm massage, and an aromatic towel for their face. All those extra details are meant to make the experience a luxurious one.
The services themselves tend to have similarly extravagant touches. Inside the Aveda concept salon, stylists don't just trim and color; they also perform spiral perms and keratin-infused blow outs, which smooth the hair before shaping it into a celebrity's silhouette. Caribbean body treatment with a manicure and pedicure pampers the body with a seaweed mask and hot-stone massages incorporate sweet-smelling flower essences. The spa also offers Aveda facials, spray tans, and temporary Henna tattoos.
Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's prettifying professionals cosset hard-working countenances within the sage and chocolate trappings of their newly opened second location. The visage invigoration begins with a pore cleansing to gently wash away accumulated dirt and ink from squid-diaper-changing mishaps. Next, a face-saving aesthetician blends a tailor-made cream concoction, designed to optimally balance and nourish skin based on skin type. The staff recommends this facial as a perfect first date with skincare for spa newbies, and Oscar Giovanni Salon & Spa's wrought-iron chandeliers and ballad-singing candles set a romantic atmosphere for adoring newly radiant skin.

As clients enter the earth-toned domain of Angelique LaBoo's eponymous massage center, they smell the scent of sweet basil. Angelique claims this helps to clear the mind, readying the body to rid itself of the emotional and mental stress that can throw it out of balance. In private treatment rooms, she whisks tightness and tension from each muscle, using an oil and lotion combination that enables her to harness the best properties of each. Though she specializes in holistic cranio-sacral and reiki techniques, Angelique also takes therapeutic approaches to help relieve symptoms of musculo-skeletal problems, such as plantar fasciitis, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and stiff backs from filling in for an Olympic ring taking a lunch break.
The certified wellness curators at Total Body Image work to evict freeloading impurities in an effort to prevent ailments including constipation, skin disorders, bloating, and arthritis. They achieve this through detoxifying holistic treatments such as colon-hydrotherapy that clears out the body's pipe works and infrared-sauna sessions that promote perspiration, thus removing toxins through the pores. To achieve healthy skin and appearances, they also use Endermologie technology to tone it and reduce cellulite, as well as a variety of anti-aging products and facial treatments.
