C'est La Vie Hair Boutique & Spa's private manicure and pedicure stations reside in a cove that's as stylish as the nails that emerge from it, its deep-blue walls and plush leather chairs partitioned off by attractive drapery. This appreciation of the finer things extends to the lineup of spa and salon products: staffers use popular OPI polishes to paint nails and Goldwell products to add color to hair that's dabbling in the artsy black-and-white phase of its career. Though the spa specializes in bridal hair and makeup services, men shouldn't feel left out, as the slate of male-centric treatments includes beard grooming, gray-hair blending, and even a special men's facial.
Modern lights hang from the ceiling like glowing martini glasses, illuminating vibrant purple walls and polished wood floors. Amid these jazzy accents, skilled stylists create bold cuts and color treatments to fit facial features and unique lifestyles. Clients can also request keratin straightening or nix unwanted fuzz during a swift waxing session.
For the stylists at Hair Revolution, only one thing matters as much as a great haircut: hair's overall health. This is especially true because they specialize in long hair, which requires extra TLC to stay healthy and keep growing. So to pamper hair of any length, they use eco-friendly Aveda products, which help smooth and protect hair without harsh ingredients. These products also ensure that hair stays healthy even after it is colored or curled into cascading tendrils. Stylists complement their hair services with waxing, facials, and nail treatments for comprehensive head to toe makeovers, much like a Halloween costume that will never, ever come off.

At Ashley Pure Beauty, haircuts are available as add-ons, but the stylists specialize in prepping gals for turning heads without a single snip of their scissors. At this blow-dry bar, they revamp 'dos with scalp therapies, updos, blowouts. Their haircare packages' names—such as Blow My Mind and Red Carpet Blowout—hint at the sassy, whimsical tone the salon cultivates.
Over the past decade, Rivaz Salons has expanded to four locations where certified beauty professionals enhance natural beauty amid Indian-inspired accoutrements. Stylists update manes with haircuts, highlights, and color, and aestheticians accentuate looks with flare lashes and Shahnaz facials. Massage therapists perform traditional Indian massages with Ayurvedic oils, and trained specialists shape brows with a process known as threading. Three artists from India apply natural plant pigments to the skin as they design henna tattoos, which are said to attract joy and luck. When staffers aren't equipping clients for everyday beauty, they offer bridal packages for both traditional western and Indian weddings.
