The kind words from New Leaf Salon & Spa's clients sound more like something you'd say to a best friend than to a stylist. One regular says that it's been "a pleasure to watch this salon evolve and grow," while another says that owner Donna "is my angel and I am so blessed to know her." It's safe to say the New Leaf team really values client relationships. This holds true as much for the stylists who highlight hair as it does for the massage therapists who calm muscles with aromatherapy oils.
When they aren't doing everything they can to make your visit relaxing, the aestheticians put a lot of thought into their skincare treatments, devising a wide variety of services to suit various skin types. Their signature facial begins with a detailed skin analysis; after they've determined that you are not, in fact, a robot, they might recommend more advanced treatments such as a vitamin-C facial or glycolic peel.
Natural light from large picture windows spreads across Allure Hair Spa’s polished hardwood floors like butter on toast, brightening the earth-toned walls surrounding them. This warmth reflects what owners Nicole and Ginger hoped to evoke when they teamed up to open Allure more than four years ago.

Assisting in this one-stop beauty shop, aestheticians administer waxes for brows, lips, and chins.
Shampoo Salon’s Asian-themed décor and wooden floors set the scene for tranquil salon getaways presided over by a staff of deft stylists.

Relying on her more than 20 years of experience, master stylist and colorist Andrea Afshari leads her team at Salon 77 as they create custom looks for clients, tailoring them to each individual's style and facial features. The staff is equally adept at caring for both men's and women's hair, and clients can stop in for a simple haircut or blowout, or opt for a more striking makeover with a color or texturizing treatment. The stylists tint locks with organically derived Alfaparf color products, and they also stock their shelves with Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics for visitors who want to continue the beautification process at home or create the world's most realistic-looking jack-o'-lantern.

Since its beams targeted their first complexion in October 1997, the tanning spa has gold-plated countless fair silhouettes.

Red light therapy is also available to revivify aging or tired faces. To continue the tanning process, customers can purchase a bottle of tanning lotion from Sun Catchers’ selection to take home.
