The skilled staff of stylists and aestheticians at George Bacchus inject zest into lackluster carnal shells, boosting appearances from faces to follicles. Hopeful hair havers can seek mane taming with a stylist, who will shampoo strands and trim tresses before blow-drying them sleek and arranging locks into comely coifs ($70 value). A keratin treatment ($300 value) sends a smoothing platoon deep into cuticles, reducing frizz and curl and rendering hair as silky and glossy as a doll's pupil for up to five months. This treatment smoothes all types of hair, including color-treated and chemically processed tresses, allocating time previously spent styling to new hobbies, such as competitive DJing and lawn-dart removal.

Catering to gentlemen who are looking for a high-quality, old-fashioned haircut experience, Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club delivers sharp-looking shaves and haircuts in a cultured, old-fashioned barbershop environment. If you opt for a haircut (a $25 value), the friendly barber crew will also wax your choice of eyebrows, nose, or ears (a $10 value), allowing the boldest of features to complement your well-kempt locks. If you opt for a micro-fine straight-razor shave (a $35 value), your steady-handed barber will smoothen skin from the collar up, leaving your neck and facial regions more touchable than silk and more silky than masculine charm.
London-trained and previous artistic director of 23-salon chain, Rick Gesumaria doesn't subscribe to the one-size-fits-all approach to hair design. Every haircut he administers is customized to meet that client's features, such as the texture of their hair, the shape of their face, and the height of their ceilings. Through a specialized computer program, he can even show clients how they'd look in hundreds of hairstyles and color treatments before they decide on their favorite. A 30-year veteran of hair design, Rick works out of David's Beautiful People, offering keratin treatments, Japanese straighteners, and extensions, all with a creative eye and desire to craft a style that gels with and emphasizes the client's look.
