Though the friendly master barbers at The Art of Cut Hair Salon specialize in men's services such as razor fades and soothing hot-towel shaves, they also nourish women's hair with keratin treatments and Moroccanoil masks. The clean, simply decorated salon welcomes guests and indoor skaters with hardwood floors, sleek black-leather sofas, and floor-length mirrors trimmed with dark wood.
Tucked inside a converted frame house on a residential block, Impressions Salon welcomes entire families for classic and celebrity-inspired hairstyles assisted by Redken, Rusk, and Unite products. Ombre highlights and the latest cuts and styles reflect stylists' sense of fun and enthusiasm for tackling new trends. Beyond the mane, nail artisans paint digits in Essie and Creative Nail Design polish, and defuzzing experts uproot unwanted strands with traditional waxing and electrolysis practiced by a licensed technician with nearly three decades of experience, or enough time to denude the combined heads of Mount Rushmore 18 times over.
Although the number of Angel Tips locations hovers around 60, there’s one thing you can count on at each of its salons: knowledgeable staff. That’s because every nail tech, massage therapist, and aesthetician learns the art of beautification at Angel’s Tips’ training center in Stamford, Connecticut. During mani-pedis, they dole out luxurious add-ons such as paraffin wax and hot-stone massage. They deeply cleanse skin during facials to reveal brighter, more even complexions, and rejuvenate bodies with tropical body scrubs and Vichy showers.

The experts of Beach Glow Tanning invite body bronzers at any stage into their intimate salon, where they journey through a diverse range of tanning beds and other exterior-enhancing services. The friendly staffers use details from each client's individual tanning goals and skin type to help craft a tailored bronzing game plan with UV and UV-free options. Those opting for a sunless glow channel their inner film-award statuette as they stand still for a technician's Phenix Sun airbrush wand, which gilds epidermises of any hue with a streak-free, natural-looking tan. The at-home Celebrity Hollywood Whites teeth-whitening system adds attractive contrast to sun-kissed skin, and red-light-therapy sessions boast the ability to stimulate collagen growth and tissue repair with a cascade of UV-free infrared light.
Phountain Health was founded on the theory that staying healthy involves balancing the body's pH levels. In addition to bottling pH-balancing alkaline water—avilable for demonstration and soon to be available via delivery—Phountain Health hosts infrared-sauna sessions, which aim to improve circulation and oust toxins, as do the spa's ionic detoxifying footbaths. The business' communal approach can also be seen in hot-yoga classes, where clients work out together rather than sit alone on the couch sipping battery acid.
