Though Salon Xia exists within a century-old cottage, its interior is nowhere near outdated. And that?s because owner Mark Mayner decided to keep the space airy, bright, and clean through the use of stained wooden accents and large, sun-soaked windows. Such contemporary touches wrap around the salon space, where stylists can often be found coloring and highlighting hair with high-end products including Aveda Full Spectrum and Redken Color Fusion dyes. The stylists also reach for Unite haircare products as they create new 'dos that are further informed by ongoing teachings from the Toni and Guy Academy.
The stylists at Gene Martin Salon shape strands and deploy the latest hairstyling techniques in a shop with a 20-year tradition of great haircuts. Partial and full sets of highlights add glow and dimension to monochromatic tresses, and newly flowing layers acquire weightless grace, much like the basketballs in unsuccessful astronaut pickup games. Moisturizing and protein treatments fortify follicles, and permanent wave and relaxer formulas add volume and shine. The salon guarantees customer satisfaction with all services.
The label all natural isn't lip service at Aveda. Bound by its mission to "care for the world," the company has created strictly selective criteria for what goes into its products. The most notable rule: 50% of every ingredient's molecular weight must come from a plant, a nonpetroleum mineral, or inorganic matter obtained exclusively from sustainable sources. Though the dedicated stylists and aestheticians at Bokaos may not be the ones fiddling with chemistry sets to formulate these eco-friendly products, they do stand by them 100% during every service.
For instance, hairstylists revamp outmoded styles with color formulas made from 99% natural ingredients, and they add bounce and movement to strands with Aveda retexturing systems enriched with certified organic ylang ylang. Meanwhile, aestheticians beautify skin with an array of facials and body treatments that use exfoliating salt glows culled from the Dead Sea, as well as plant-based waxing services augmented with skin-soothing essential oils. Once hair and skin is prepped, makeup artists swoop in to finish the look, melding a special foundation with water before applying it to faces with an airbrush, hiding blemishes, skin discoloration, and Sharpie?d chemistry notes for up to 20 hours.

The team at Jubilee Salon and Spa includes pampering professionals one would expect—stylists, nail techs, aestheticians—but to take the venue's de-stressing services to the next level, an onsite chiropractor eases aches caused by injuries, desk jobs, or Cirque du Soleil auditions via massages and physiotherapy. The facility's sleek, modern furnishings are juxtaposed with the warm chocolate- and vanilla-colored walls in an open space whose elegance is accentuated with Greek-style columns and hanging chandeliers. The staff's signature facials and body wraps render skin glowing, and hair treatments from simple cuts to bridal updos get a hand from Morrocanoil, Eufora, and Dermalogica products.
Each of the six state-licensed lash designers at Integrity Lash maintains strict standards of hygiene and personal attention, performing all applications in a private room with a pre-sanitized set of tools for each client. Drawing from an inventory of more than 3.5 million lashes that vary in length, curl, thickness, and ability to support a perching butterfly, designers apply extensions one by one using medical-grade equipment and adhesives that are checked daily for freshness. Surgical magnifying loupes, broad-spectrum lighting, and ultra-fine tweezers make technicians? work as precise as possible.
