Regardless of which one of the eight James Craig's cheerful stylists clients choose, they can rest assured that the stylist has undergone extensive training in the art of haircare, cutting, and coloring. Each of the seasoned stylists have completed the comprehensive one-year The James Craig Advanced Education Program and routinely study up on the latest trends under the Redken Exchange educators the salon has flown in from New York. The staff prides itself on using only the most-advanced salon products, including Kérastase, Redken, Oribe, and the James Craig signature line.
Sunlight floods the hardwood floors of the elegant salon, where the stylists administer cuts, colors, and hair-extension services as customers sip on complimentary coffee and tea. Each procedure begins with an in-depth consultation to discuss desired looks and ends with an informative discussion on re-creating professional styles, such as how to blow dry curls to create flattering waves or fashion an elegant scalp-top topiary garden.
The Land Down Under is a continent set beneath a scorching sun—Australian Tan knows, just like Australians, how to harness the light to achieve glowing, bronzy skin. The salon’s faux sun comes from six different tanning booths. The most basic bed imparts a base tan in 20 minutes, while the Instant 770 imparts a rich, long-lasting hue in as few as 10. Meanwhile, the sunless spray-tanning booth houses an automatic system that sprays on UV-free color. Regardless of the chosen bed, the staff can complement sessions with bronzing lotions that enhance acquired tans or help an old trophy get through a midlife crisis with a refreshed façade. Each member of the staff goes through 35 hours of training prior to working in the salon, so they can easily tailor tanning plans to each customer.
"Rejuv? was inspired because we wanted to offer patients the latest advances in skin rejuvenation and body enhancement," says medical director Dr. John Tang. Dr. Tang and his wife, Alexandra Tang, a registered nurse, opened Rejuv? in 2004 to provide these cosmetic services though nonsurgical and minimally invasive means, such as laser treatments, beauty injectables, and traditional spa appointments.

The massage therapists at Shivaga Thai Massage skillfully knead away at aches and aim to improve energy flow through the body with an array of healing Thai treatments. Performed by a senior-level muscle manipulator on clients cloaked in loose-fitting clothing, the custom-tailored, oil-free therapeutic massage focuses on specific areas of stiffness or pain in an attempt to correct energy imbalances. An herbal massage employs a poultice of steamed local herbs to soothe tension and infuse sore spots with pesto and deep-pressure Thai techniques. The aroma massage marinates Eastern and Western modalities in fragrant organic oils for a Thai-meets-Swedish kneading that leaves the body revitalized and euphoric. Sip a cup of complimentary Thai tea at the end of the massage as you browse the wares in the ornately decorated Shivaga store. Upgraded services and substitutions of crab-rangoon sauce for massage oil are available for an additional fee.
Don’t stroll into Y&L Style Bar expecting a haircut or color treatment. Though comprised of expert stylists, the salon's team sticks to washes followed by blowouts and elegant up-dos. This means, that once every strand has been swept into place, customers will have enough time to enjoy manicures and pedicures, administered by nail techs or to sit as one of the bar's aestheticians beautifies their skin with mineral-based cosmetics by Jane Iredale.
But the fun here isn't reserved for adults only: birthday party packages invite girls as young as four to enjoy age-appropriate makeup, manicures, and other pint-size pampering, while Y&L's entire crew shares their skills with teen girls at annual summer camps.
