The stylists at Essence have clients covered whether they want an elaborate updo for a wedding or prom or simply a quick deep conditioning to keep their locks healthy and strong. To put the finishing touches on clients' looks, the salon can even remove hair from the face and body with the gentle sugaring technique or perform eyelash tinting and pro-level makeup applications.
Each crowd-pleasing trio comes on a reusable platter that is handy for later serving B-list house guests. The Wandering Café asks that customers call 48 hours ahead.

Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits and wedding photography, creates visual heirlooms in a tradition of quality it has upheld since 1947. With several area studios available, each boasts a multitude of backdrop options for portraiture sessions, or photographers may take sessions outdoors to add natural scenery to the frame. Wedding and engagement shots come to life under the careful eyes of each photographer as they seize rare moments and trap them in frames to be displayed like trophies from a hunt. High-school, child, baby, and family portraits keep precious memories locked in time for clients, who can peruse an online gallery of their images after their session.
Founded by a former Hawaiian resident, Hawai'i General Store & Gallery brings a dash of aloha stateside through an eclectic assortment of aloha wear, home accessories, luau supplies, island music, and more. Flown in weekly from Honolulu, the fresh tropical lei drapes the necks of loved ones in fine flowers for celebrating a graduation, showing affection on Mother's or Father's Day, or congratulating a friend on administering their first blindfolded haircut. Choose to revel in the sweet scent of a yellow-and-white plumeria lei, adorn bare necklines with a tuberose-and-orchid combination—a string of white- and purple-tipped petals exuding a strong fragrance—or select the scentless dendrobium orchid, which is visually comparable to the tuberose and orchid combination but is less likely to discombobulate internal sneeze factories.
