Studio Salon stylists Amanda and Miceala work hair magic that doesn't break the bank. All haircuts include a complimentary shampoo and style, and services such as deep-conditioning, glaze, and chlorine treatments are discounted when purchased as part of a package. Relaxers and keratin treatments leave locks shiny and smooth, whereas highlights or ombre color add depth to 'dos. They can also volumize hair with tape-in or microbead extensions and prep guests for important events with special-occasion hair and makeup.
Zara Beauty and Spa's clients don't need to hop in an airplane to get Eastern-inspired beauty treatments. Instead, they can walk into Zara's soothing confines, where the staff has mastered a wide range of intricate services, many involving natural herbs and ingredients. Staff members can decorate hands with traditional henna tattoos, pluck stray eyebrows with threading services, and incorporate gold-infused products in Ayurvedic-style facials. The spa also offers more contemporary services such as skin peels or microdermabrasions, as opposed to manicures set to techno music.

Other services at the salon include haircuts and mani-pedis with a paraffin dip.

Stylist and cosmetologist Amanda Howards has more in her tool belt than a pair of shears. In addition to creating chic coiffures for her clients, she uses color, relaxers, and extensions to transform locks, and shapes flattering special-occasion 'dos.
