A Signature Spa provides a soothing boutique setting for pampering, beautification, and evading warrant-toting posses. Each Stress Melt Away package begins by treating pool propellers to a hot stone foot soak with eucalyptus while their owners knock back a complimentary beverage and light snack. Next, a potent combo of steam room and infrared sauna detoxes the body of such common poisons as poison, while a Swiss shower cleanses the corpus in a neutral, conflict-eluding locale. An application of cocoa-butter body moisturizer turns your dry skin's desert into a skin dessert, giving it the smoothness and sweet flavor of a relaxed, spreadable concoction that pairs well with toasted bread. A Signature Spa's technicians will then get the cranium tingling with the sweet smells of a peppermint scalp massage. The entire two-hour relaxathon wraps up with a 50-minute full-body massage that leaves you feeling as loose and limber as a spider monkey after yoga class.
The salon's pale blue walls, polished wood floors, and magenta flowers give the space an open and warm environment as skilled stylist Jorjia deftly manipulates tresses.

Jorjia also offers keratin treatments and beach-wave perms, which provide a proper disguise for sneaking up on waterfowl.
Like candy in a vending machine, Dante’s nine types of massages are waiting for clients to pick the one they most want to indulge in. But unlike vending-machine candy, there is no wrong choice here. Dante customizes each deep-tissue, craniosacral, shiatsu, or lymphatic-drainage massage to suit an individual’s physique.
At Chateau Belle, in a space designed to conjure the feel of a Parisian flea market, lash luminary Megan Alexandra uses organic products and NovaLash and Shavasana extensions to pamper peepers and dress them with luxurious fringe. Patrons select lashes to suit their own orbs from frill in an array of lengths and thicknesses, which Alexandra carefully applies over 60–90 minutes, and organic, anti-wrinkle gel pads soothe the eye area more than a staring contest with a bubble bath. Floral-mist essences delight with gentle haikus to nostrils and refresh with healing particles as guests acquire flare extensions for coquettish eye-batting or full extensions that enable train-stopping winks. Except for the glue, the salon uses entirely organic products, and lashes last for approximately three weeks, after which fills are recommended.
The nautically-themed 19 Blue Salon and Spa soothes and beautifies visitors using organic, handmade products. Clients opting for the 90-minute mermaid organic facial will enjoy a deep-cleaning mask of botanicals, flower essences, and gem elixirs. A detoxifying sea-salt back scrub cracks down on impurities like waves on a clam, eventually yielding the purity of a pearl, while an invigorating massage frees up stiff torsos. The salon's skilled aesthetician also helps clients kick-start their inner health, bestowing dietary guidance and health supplements.
