Prestige Salon & Spa keeps statures in good standing with a toolbox of skin-nourishing and health-inducing services. Release skin that has long since stopped paying its union dues with a clarifying microdermabrasion treatment ($99), which removes dead skin cells to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation. For an hour of blissful kneading, choose a Swedish massage ($70) to increase circulation, or the aromatherapy version with scented essential oils ($75) to rejuvenate skin without restoring so much youth that you turn back into a baby. Deep-tissue massage ($75) descends into soft tissue and joints to liberate pain while increasing flexibility and range of motion. Prestige Salon & Spa's bright confines feature yellow walls and white trim for a cheery atmosphere to match the cheer-inducing services.

Joe Sassu runs the Paul Mitchell focus salon Sassu Cuts, where he strives to develop the feel and style of a New York City hair salon. He and his newest staffer, Abby Ayala, also do their level best to create NYC-inspired hairstyles, performing an array of beauty services. Abby’s background includes second place in her field at SkillsUSA, a competition among thousands of students from Connecticut’s technical schools.

The pristinely clean premises of Always Tan sparkle with the beds, sprays, and lotions necessary to achieve a perfectly darkened pelt. Fans and headphones lie waiting inside the shop’s private tanning rooms, where reflector-light beds gradually bronze physiques until they acquire a sun-kissed glow or a marriage proposal from a Rodin sculpture. UV–free Norvell tanning solutions fly from the hands of certified tech Christine Andro as she deftly spritzes faces and bodies with streak-free color.
