Boda Salon's stylists breathe new life into hair by deftly cutting, coloring, and texturizing to suit their clients' unique desires. After sudsing up hair with All-Nutrient shampoos and conditioners—composed of renewable, certified-organic ingredients—they assess the ideal look for their subject's face shape and fashion sense before resculpting with precise scissor snips, laying trails of dimension-boosting highlights, or leveling out unruly locks with keratin proteins. Meanwhile, four types of facials, microdermabrasion, and waxing services lend a salon-fresh look to the rest of the body faster than taking a tiny curling iron to each arm hair.

30 minutes. That's all the time Simple Touch Beauty's licensed skincare specialists need to beautify complexions with an express facial, composed of a basic cleanse, exfoliation, and optional extractions. However, give them more time, and they show off their repertoire of more luxurious treatments. Their collagen facial, for example, helps minimize wrinkles with a collagen-infused mask. Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, sloughs away dead skin cells, refreshing faces without dousing them in Sprite.

While products from Redken, Pureology, Schwarzkopf Professional, and OPI would be more than enough to fill most stylists' arsenals, the staff of Areté Salon and Spa has another weapon at its disposal. Color-perfect lighting gives the stylists a clear view of their work, allowing colorists and others to accurately assess the results of their labor. Nail technicians work with color as well, outfitting digits with vivid shades of polish, while aestheticians employ essential oils, plant enzymes, and other solutions to rejuvenate complexions and the gardening industry.

The owners at Salon Mmm each boast more than 25 years in the cosmetology industry, using their aesthetic expertise to oversee a staff of talented wig whisperers. Hair revampings begin with a wash, before a resident hair sculptor trims, snips, and sings the hair nest into a face-flattering trance, setting the newfound shape with a blow-dry styling. Stylists then accent natural 'dos with a selection of three small feathers or one large and one small feather, weaving the pretty plumage into the natural locks. While ensconced inside the tranquil salon, guests seep in relaxing vibes from mocha-hued walls and a soothing water wall.

No matter the look you're going for, Mark William Salon & DaySpa's staff can help you achieve it. Here, the stylists cut long layers and asymmetrical bobs, finishing them off with all-over color or sun-kissed highlights. They also affix natural-looking extensions to existing hair to create length and volume without gluing the family cat to your head.

The experts don't stop with hair, either. They fill their spa menu with hydrating facials, hot-stone massages, colorful mani-pedis, and makeup applications for a special event or night out on the town.

Back in 1980, a group of sister and their parents cut the ribbon on their own salon, Shear Pleasure. Today, three of those original sisters co-own the salon, employing their family's next generation of stylists, along with a crack corps of non-related 'do crafters. Along with their coiffure cropping, the team also specializes in nails?offering shellac and gel manicures that don?t chip or wander off after a few days?and hair replacment, including micropoint extensions for thin hair.
