Layla Bouley aims to boost her clients’ self-esteem and peace of mind using her skills in aesthetics.

Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Claudia Salon & Spa relaxes and revamps every inch of the human body with a variety of pampering head-to-toe services. Vanquish visage villains with an array of facials that rejuvenate and freshen faces, like a spray of Pledge across a newly hewn wooden canoe. The 75-minute deep pore-cleansing facial ($85) ventures deep into the pits of derm despair to extract dirt, grime, and blemish behemoths. The 30-minute ionic footbath ($40) extracts from the opposite end, claiming to pull toxins and heavy metals from the body using positive charges and extended guitar solos. Treat toes to a deluxe pedicure complete with a mask and hot towels ($45), or betray finger preference with a deluxe manicure and paraffin treatment ($25).
Nestled inside TréusDell Salon & Spa, Estética Day Spa rejuvenates exteriors with facials, waxing, massages, and permanent-makeup services. The spa’s massage therapists delight the senses with therapeutic essential oils and relax aching muscles with Swedish massage, the long, fluid strokes of which were developed to calm hysteria during lingonberry shortages. Aestheticians oust fuzz from underarms and upper lips, and makeup specialists tint eyebrows, line eyelids, and shift the shades of lips with permanent pigmentation. For those who didn’t sleep in baths of rose milk until they were 18, the salon also treats weary and blemished skin to European facials, sugar scrubs, and glycolic peels.
A full-service beautification destination, Fernanda's Salon houses a staff that's always ready to restore or reinvent styles. Stylists usually take center stage, and with good reason; their wide range of hair services includes everything from basic haircuts to extensive braiding and coloring services that give locks a much-needed costume change. In addition to making hair work its hardest, staffers also rid bods of fuzz that's wandered too far from its homeland; the shop's body-waxing services defoliate physiques from face to leg with the help of Italian products. Skincare forms the final point in the salon's trifecta, with aestheticians cleansing faces with peels, microdermabrasion, and one of five customizable facials.
