The seven-person team of tattoo and piercing artists at Highland's Finest Tattoos couples custom illustrations with rigorous health and cleanliness standards, with the goal of giving each client a piece of art they'll cherish throughout their lives. Using the brightest-quality pigments and disposable tubes and needles opened in full view of each customer, the artists create personalized images in tribal, realistic, portrait, black-and-gray, or new-skool styles. The team also specializes in cover-up tattoos, allowing patrons to transform their ill-advised or outdated tattoo more efficiently than tapping it with a magician's wand.
As an Aveda Concept Salon, Progressive Image Hair Art proudly stocks and implements an array of plant-based Aveda products.

Specializing in all aspects of hairstyling, Canvas Salon’s talented staff of hair tamers is led by Cherry Doran Johnson and Lorraine Blanco, who boast decades of follicle-forming experience. Visitors can get a look-rejuvenating haircut and a volume-boosting style that will accessorize any outfit better than a pair of road-flare earrings. While customers wind down and relax, away from noisy traffic and marauding city invaders, the friendly tress-masters will swaddle your locks in a conditioning shine masque ($15–$20) that penetrates each strand to soften and add a lustrous shine.
Paul Mitchell The School complements the mission statement of its home—MTI College—by giving students the opportunity to pursue their passion for hair care in employment-driven programs that emphasize hands-on training. With the help of sage instructors, the school's aspiring stylists showcase their skills by offering trims as well as more in-depth treatments that can create dramatic new looks for their clients. A cut and style session gives hairdos a new life and coloring and texturizing treatments add depth where it's needed most. As an added bonus, every haircut includes a soothing five-minute scalp treatment that helps alleviate stress and removes long-forgotten birthday party hats.
Within the calming confines of Lima Salon and Spa, Terri Tagami aims to make good on her practice's name by relaxing her clients with multiple massage modalities. She wields finesse in Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage, and can combine the soothing techniques to create fully custom treatments. Each session harnesses massage therapy's bevy of natural benefits, such as improved circulation, diminished pain, and increased range of motion. To bolster freshly kneaded musculature, Terri can also help patrons shed extra poundage with body wraps, which waft infrared heat to melt away cellulite, toxins, and swallowed ice sculptures.
