The Nails & More photo gallery explodes with more colors than a crayon box––but what's most impressive is the precision. Among the many literal thumbnail shots are tiny geometric shapes, repeating designs, as well as precisely applied solid shades for more subtle decoration.

Working out of Alexander's Barbershop, master barber Tina Olive knows how to handle the rougher edges of men?s beards and sideburns. There are no unnecessary frills to her classic haircuts?just the snips and clips it takes to craft sharp, contemporary looks. She does, however, offer a VIP haircut that includes a straight-razor shave. To prep whiskers for this traditional treatment, Tina first applies a hot towel and then hot lather to make for a smooth shave.
For more than 25 years, the stylists at J. Scott Salon have enlivened hair with everything from braids and extensions to wavy perms.

Along with cuts that trim and shorten dos, the stylists can perform waxing treatments that remove unwanted locks all together.
At A Room of Therapy, licensed massage therapist Octavia Stevens draws upon her expertise in half a dozen massage traditions to soothe beleaguered bodies.

For an extra fee, Stevens can add hot towels, hot stones, or hot potatoes.
