Author and Juut SalonSpa owner David Wagner channels a childhood spent watching nature’s beauty into his Aveda salon’s eight locations. The studio stylists and other staff members, many of whom benefit from the company’s extensive training program, perform services beneath shelves laden with Aveda products. The botanically sourced elixirs repair and sculpt hair naturally without subjecting it to other products’ unpleasant chemicals or a robot hairdresser’s endless questions about love.
Mes Amis's experienced cosmetinauts and hairsplorers will work with you to craft a look that not only says "you" but says "hey, you beautiful thing, how you doing?" After your cut, salve the jealousy your feet must be feeling with a soothing pedicure.

Like any good Bollywood movie, there's a happy ending: a calf massage, nail polish, and a last-minute wedding.

It's like walking into a comic book. Deep-red and purple walls burst with graffiti murals of jagged skylines, puffy clouds, and the word "bleach" in big black bubble letters. Amid these jazzy accents, master designer and color specialist Teresa Riley draws on more than 20 years of experience to transform tresses with products by All-Nutrient, Wella, and Davines. Clients also may request voluminous lash extensions or revamp the complexion with a private makeup consultation.
