Products from high-end brands such as Morrocanoil, Global Keratin, and Schwarzkopf fuel the haircare services at Nelly's Spa Hair & Beauty.

Within the funky, upbeat confines of this Paul Mitchell Focus studio, D&L’s follicular fanatics refurbish lady locks and man manes with timeless and inimitable looks. Opt for a sassy snip and clip with an advanced hair artist ($65), or master hair artist ($75), all schooled in the art of noggin nest rejuvenation. A hair blow ($45) imparts beautiful blasts of heat for precisely sculpted scalps (included with all cuts), and the uptown girl ($75) upsweeps strands for special occasions such as weddings, high-school reunions, or upscale stuffed-animal parties.
Upon arrival at Myra & Company's multifaceted beauty emporium, guests are warmly greeted and ushered into either a tranquil treatment room or the state-of-the-art Pilates studio. Body-buffers can relax and unwind as an expert scrubber sweeps away dead skin cells during the 30-minute invigorating body scrub. Choose from one of seven specially scented scrubs, such as Sacred Earth, a mixture of vanilla, cinnamon, and shea butter, or Transcendent Sun, a holiday spice, cocoa butter, and superheated-ionized-hydrogen scrub. To loosen, strengthen, and lengthen the body, opt for a quintuplet of Pilates Equipment classes, an exercise system based on balance, strength, and flexibility. During each 60-minute class, students target a variety of muscle groups using a system of floor exercises and innovative Pilates equipment. Or, combat stress, aging, and the negative effects of the environment with a rejuvenating collagen and vitamin C facial. The 90-minute hydrating facial employs a bevy of antioxidants to stimulate cell growth and fight free radicals and beauty-ambushing wrinkle guerrillas.
Detlev Hair Studio's experienced aestheticians smooth out hirsute humans with follicle-felling treatments culled from its extensive menu of waxing services. Prep gams for a summery showcase with a lower-leg wax ($35), or prod eyebrows toward good behavior with a brow shaping ($23), transforming eye adornments into sleek lines or hidden Morse-code messages. Salon-goers can rid shoulders of fuzz ($25), neaten up a bikini line ($28), or de-fur chests ($40) while tucked within the angular, modern confines of Detlev’s cosmetically minded atelier. Detlev aids busy clients in their hair-removal quest by keeping doors open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, removing unwanted stubble before morning commutes or after evening werewolf hunts.
The technicians at Personal Touch Body Waxing & Tanning get their clients' skin summer ready with gentle mineral waxes and spray tans.

This NY-style manstitution harkens back to the barbershop heyday of the '40s, with intricate gold-trimmed walls, classy chandeliers, and a team of friendly hair whisperers that's armed and legged to whip follicles into shape. A tenure spent nestled in the shop's plush fur-fighting chairs can take two forms. Stylishly eradicate facial fuzz with a luxurious hot-lather shave, employing heated shaving cream and a pristine straight-blade to render a clean-cut appearance matched only by Library of Congress cadets and Ken dolls. Or, opt for the all-encompassing haircut service, having your strands styled to your liking as well as lovingly shampooed and conditioned. A shirt-flattering neck-shave is also included, preventing shady back-neck tendril trades.
