Thirty years ago, a mother, a son, and his wife joined forces to create their own barbecue restaurant, starting with family-inspired, made-from-scratch recipes. The formula proved to be a success, and although Woody’s Bar-B-Q is now under new ownership and management, they still dish up the same quality eats from locations in six states. The newly remodeled restaurant’s defining secret sauce decorates baby back ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and roasted half-chickens.

At TanGirl, customers can use the Infinity Sun tanning system to achieve a sun-free tan, using a skin-safe walnut-based bronzer. The formula can last up to 10 days and looks after skin with a blend of antioxidants and botanicals. Each tanning session is customized for the client, either on location in clients’ homes or at TanGirl's spa room at Divine Salon and Spa. A spray-tan technician uses the Infinity Sun airbrush device to apply the tanning solution more evenly. The versatile Infinity Sun brush can also cover the skin with a mist of moisture or shimmer for special occasions, such as beach vacations or family reunions with the pod of dolphins that raised you.
Salon Envy's staff cossets hair, skin, and nails with natural Aveda products and expert techniques. Stylists imbue hair with highlights and alluring cuts, smooth strands with Brazilian blowouts and Juvexin, and twirl curls into updos for special occasions such as weddings and proms. As aestheticians exfoliate, massage, polish, and imprint appendages in Grauman's cement, water swirls in a hexagonal pedicure tub and guests recline in a plush leather armchair. The beauty buffs also enliven complexions with facials, eyelash extensions, whisker-slaying electrolysis, and massages.
Attraction Salon's experienced stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians make a point of welcoming their visitors with open arms and plush salon chairs. Perhaps due to this uncommon hospitality, the salon has developed a reputation for serving a multicultural base of clientele that includes women and men alike. Stylists invoke a chorus of clips and snips with their shears, forming flattering shapes or enhancing the look and health of hair with highlights, deep conditioning, and texturizing treatments. Nail technicians busy themselves with the other kind of keratin, whittling nails into elegant shapes during manicures and pedicures or applying full sets of glittery acrylics. Faces likewise sparkle after one of five facials that cater to dry and acne-prone skin, rejuvenating complexions with cleansing and exfoliating techniques. On the other side of the salon, spray-tanning and waxing treatments prepare bodies for lounging on beaches or napping inconspicuously in bronze-sculpture gardens.
