Hawaiian-print curtains welcome clients to Suki Day Spa's shabby-chic Fourth Avenue location, where bamboo screens flank cream-colored sofas in wicker or leather and a vast painting of a red blossom reflects punches of crimson in the throw pillows and fresh blooms. The long, lean space reaches beyond the plush pedicure chairs to a hallway with private rooms, where spa treatments such as massages, facials, and spray tans gloss clients' guises more effectively than daily slatherings of vaseline and glitter.
Brushed by Sabrina grooms clients with a broad swath of salon treatments and tanning options. Haircuts for men, women, and children can be paired with highlights or color and styling from Paul Mitchell-trained stylists. Airbrush spray tans give bodies a beach-ready bronze glow either in the studio or on-location at clients' homes.
Ashley Gray’s work has been featured on The Discovery Channel, in numerous feature films and music videos, and on the sets of high-profile fashion shoots. Though she probably has more stories than she could hope to share, Ashley rarely talks as much as she listens. As the owner and head stylist at FISHTAILS - The Salon, she prides herself on turning each client’s wish into reality. That’s why she begins each appointment by asking about your lifestyle, taking notes on your bone structure, and examining your head for signs of nesting birds. She then puts all of this information to good use, crafting a style that suits and embellishes your personal style. Aside from standard cuts, highlights, and coloring treatments, Ashley can apply extensions and smooth out frizz with keratin treatments.
Only a short curler toss from Lisa's Hair Studio is the world's largest hair-washing basin: the Pacific Ocean. Clients almost hear the gentle thrum of saltwater against the sand as they sink into a cozy styling chair. There, Lisa Singer works hair into a thick lather, then draws on more than 10 years of expertise to tailor a cut and color to the individual's desires. Male guests are also welcome to stop in for a scissor cut, fade, or crew to flatter the features.

The stylists at Grand Creation Salon cut, color, and coif tresses using products from Redken, Pureology, Moroccanoil, and other top-quality lines. Services skew toward the whole family, with guys stopping by for buzz cuts, neck trims, and speedy gray-blending color treatments and kids settling in for quick bang trims or party-ready french braids. To keep women's tresses on trend, stylists leave them looking sleek and chic with Brazilian blowouts and also weave in feather extensions, hair tinsels, and crystals to keep heads from being one-upped by their neighbor's holiday decorations.
