In less than a decade, T-Mobile transformed from the sparkle in a CEO's eye into one of the largest wireless carriers in the U.S. The company—known for its vibrant pink logo and the charismatic celebrities who've filled its ads—takes pride in pioneering new cell-phone trends. Their newfangled 4G network sprawls across 217 markets to reach 200 million people, making it one of the most sprawling networks in the United States. Chatters access this invisible web via contract-free plans, which release them from the boot heel of years-long agreements enforced by most cell phone providers. The company's modern cell phones are lightweight, multi-functional, and double as secret explosive devices while you pretend to be an international spy. Despite its success, the company remains dedicated to its principles, earning a spot on the Ethisphere Institute's list of world's most ethical companies for three years in a row.
The staff at My Spa & Boutique aim to beautify guests in a relaxing atmosphere. Massage therapists incorporate fragrant aromatherapy into candlelit couples massages and technicians combat signs of aging during facials with Éminence Organic Skin Care products.

The device can disable follicles on any skin type, be it pale, tanned, or made of plaster.
In the salon area, experienced stylists craft custom cuts and colors and perform specialty services such as feather extensions. Tiled floors, arched doorways, and soft lighting from ornate sconces give the space an ambiance reminiscent of a Spanish hacienda.
By using centuries-old techniques, the aestheticians at Just Stringz are capable of designing trendy, dramatic looks for their clients. They rely on their extensive training in the ancient art of threading as they use cotton thread to swiftly uproot unwanted hairs and meticulously shape brows. Though the spa's henna tattoos and Swarovski body-art services also embrace time-honored strategies, the team doesn't ignore modern advances in cosmetic care. Facial treatments use Dermalogica skincare products to address skin concerns such as dehydrated patches or breakouts. Or these blemishes can be covered temporarily with an application of Glo Minerals Makeup, which also nourishes skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and pure Nobelium atoms.
