The licensed aestheticians at FaceLuXe clear skin of dirt and unwanted hair with a full spectrum of facials and waxing services. Their concern for individual care shines through in the consultations that precede each treatment, during which they select products that match clients’ specific skin types. They then use these products in signature facials designed to address issues associated with aging, such as fine lines and burn marks from trying to blow out too many birthday candles at once. As a partner of MassageLuXe—a company dedicated to improving health through therapeutic massage—FaceLuXe offers relaxation packages such as the Day of Renew treatment, which includes a massage, facial, and warm lavender paraffin treatment for the hands and feet.
Rumors Salon & Day Spa pampers manes, mugs, and digits via the hands and eyes of experienced body-buffers.

Paw petals will blossom with cleanliness and vibrancy during a manicure ($23), and arches will achieve new heights with an eyebrow wax ($15), a treatment that's also shown to prevent confusion between “I’m interested” and “I can’t believe you live with your mother’s zither band” facial cues.
As a Pivot Point member school, the Academy of Beauty has been offering top-notch cosmetology training for aspiring mane tamers and skin smoothers for more than 25 years. At the academy salon, noodle nests are nurtured by student stylists working under the watchful eyes of licensed educators and Adonia, the Greek goddess of Brazilian blowouts. Each haircut begins with a relaxing scalp massage to lull scared strands out of hiding before shampooing, snipping, and shaping them to the height of follicular fashion.

Armed with arsenals of professional products, teams of tress tacklers trim lengthy locks, big bangs, and short 'dos like a well-oiled beauty platoon. During each service, guests recline in shallow sinks, absorbing the bubbly bliss of a scalp shampoo before their scheduled shearing. Upon cutting completion, strands are sleekly blow-dried and styled, resulting in the kind of clear-headed confidence that emboldens Sudoku-puzzle lovers to use ink.
