The oversized styling mirrors at Mara's Salon reflect clients growing progressively more relaxed under the spell of the peace-inducing botanical aromas drifting through the studio. Nail techs spike mani-pedis with herbal tea, ylang-ylang oil, lavender salts, or a milk-and-honey blend; meanwhile, guests seated on leather armchairs or sofas gingerly nibble snacks and sip wine between hydrating lotion massages and paraffin dips. Staff supplement generous business hours with flexible off-hours scheduling, letting men and women work haircut, color, or waxing sessions into a tight schedule and meet the birds who come in to collect the salon's discarded hair for their nests each night.

Tucked behind a pink-and-white façade, Glama-Rama! Salon & Gallery's stylists bear down on outdated coifs with hair services amid potted orchids and gleefully crowded shelves. Scissors thrum through locks, and stylists stray from the norm by conducting consultations in Latin or delivering retro updos and dreadlocks with products from brands including Bumble and bumble and DevaCurl. Along the walls of the beauty haven, local artists parade masterpieces for discerning eyes. Peepers skip away to gaze at glossy hardwood floors, vintage-inspired mirrors, and styling stations washed in the soft, rosy hue of a ghost in the wrong restroom.
