On-trend haircuts, eye-catching highlights, updos for weddings, prom, or visits to upscale gas stations—these are just a few of the many beautifying services at Silhouette's Beauty Salon. Here, stylists snip strands and shape hairdos that help clients express themselves and keep up with the latest fashions. The salon also enhances clients' facial features with makeup applications.
Though Paris Esthetics borrows its name from the renowned French capital, one would be hard-pressed to walk any city’s streets and be graced by the same scents of vanilla plum, citrus blossom, and cucumber jasmine that pervade the air of aesthetician Tasha Robinson’s salon. Tasha pampers men and women with soothing, skin-enhancing facials that call upon problem-solving serums by Bioelements and Hempz skin products enriched with organic hemp-seed oil. Tailoring treatments to each client's skin type, Tasha takes tired skin to task with deep cleanses and a range of “skincare boot camp” treatments that banish acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. Along with her facial services, Tasha fights unwanted fuzz on lips, chins, underarms, and bikini areas with waxing treatments and applies makeup to prep complexions for evening galas or late-night jewel heists.
Massage might be the only form of treatment offered at New Happy Day Spa, but that's not to say that the studio's clients don't have options. Traditionalists can stick to Swedish massage, made more fluid by the use of oils. Deep-tissue massage often gets a helping hand from warmed basalt stones, which loosen areas of tension and calm the nervous system. The spa's resident massage therapists have another mode of targeting aches: the Chinese art of reflexology, which uses a pressure-point map of the feet in an attempt to stimulate healing throughout the body and banish phantom socks.
From an intricate, koi-themed thigh sleeve to a crossword puzzle bicep tattoo, Rob's tattoo portfolio brims with creative, artistic designs. Each inking reflects its wearer as much as Rob's artistry, too; each line of the crossword puzzle, for example, is filled in with a different name that carries a personal significance to its owner. Rob has also done designs for charity, like tattoos of breast cancers' pink ribbon that he inks on survivors free of charge.

But the sauna room and facial room shouldn’t be overlooked—feel free to come in to relax, rejuvenate, and see how the acoustics compare to your bathroom at home. The spa also features showers and changing rooms for men and women.
