No matter hair's type or condition, the experienced stylists at Star Struck Styles can fashion dos into tiptop shape. Inside the sleek multicultural salon, the styling team sets to work on strands using high-quality products from Paul Mitchell, Joico, and KeraCare. Clients can opt for a wide array of cuts, color treatments, and extensions, as well as other pampering services, such as mani-pedis and facials. To maintain its serene environment, kids are only permitted inside the salon if they are receiving beauty treatments or standing on each others' shoulders in an oversized trench coat.

"Unique Total Design" is not a misnomer. The intimate salon sets the stage for total metamorphoses that range from bold to subtle via hair and makeup services. Clients can shorten locks into sharp pixie cuts or transform tresses into elaborate braids and relaxer-assisted waves. Makeup artists accent features to create natural looks, but they can also pepper eyelids in animal-print shadow in preparation for a night out or sneaking into the zoo.

Secure a digital overhaul to soothe what aches your hardworking phalanges with the mani-pedi treatment. The classic manicure ($15) and spa pedicure ($45) procedures clip and trim keratin handhorns and footclaws into shapely nails before buffing and polishing them into shining hammer-shields. The paraffin treatment uses warm molten wax as a conditioning dip, coating your feet and locking in moisturizing goodness that leaves skin as soft and smooth as a baby's pickup lines. If you deem your finger-helmets equally worthy of wax, pay an additional $5 to upgrade to the Spa Manicure ($20) with paraffin treatment.

In addition to its namesake plate, Black Tuna serves seafood, pasta, salads, and American cuisine. Start with an order of eponymous blackened-tuna bites ($10), or hunt for the elusive spicy battered jumbo buffalo shrimp ($10). Local favorites, neighbored with a salad and choice of veggie side (garlic mash, steak fries, baked potato, or veggie special), offer up numerous opportunities to fill your internal torso purse. Try tuna either blackened and Cajun drizzled ($19) or pan seared with parmesan, basil, mushrooms, and lump crab meat ($20). Non–fin fans will appreciate the chicken penne pasta ($13) swimming in creamy alfredo or the rib eye peering out from behind a curtain of caramelized onions ($22).

All of the hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians at Serenity Spa strive to make clients feel comfortable and relaxed, not just by pampering them, but by putting them at ease with unpretentious service. Wielding botanically based Aveda products, the stylists can reshape tresses into a modern 'do or a scale model of Mount Rushmore. Relaxing and therapeutic massages unfurl knotted muscles, and the spa's facial and body treatments employ Pevonia skincare products and luxuriant ingredients, including pure caviar extract, African sea-salt scrubs, and masks with seaweed and chamomile. The nail technicians tidy up clients' digits by evenly trimming cuticles and shaping nails, glazing them with a fresh coat of color or a chip-resistant Axxium or Shellac gel polish.
