Life Salon and Spa is an Aveda-concept salon stocked to its exposed industrial piping with a skilled staff and a bevy of beautifying services. The nature massage is a 60-minute, personally tailored treatment that uses a variety of massage techniques to seek out and eradicate the poltergeists, hobgoblins, and writhing dybbuks haunting your musculature. A variety of aromas, specifically chosen for their relaxing and rejuvenating qualities, is also integrated into the massage for an experience that smells as good as it feels. The botanical resurfacing facial also lasts one hour and uses a tourmaline radiance refiner to excavate frontal pores and a tourmaline radiance mask to gently encourage the face to spread its beautiful cheekfeathers. Whichever treatment you choose, you'll leave Life Salon and Spa with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.

At E-Clips Salon & Boutique, each stylist's workstation is packed with an array of styling tools and professional products for an extensive repertoire of aesthetic services. Bottles of Paul Mitchell and Redken coloring products sit alongside assorted scissors and hair clippers, and drawers abound with feather extensions, waxing products, and colorful nail polishes. Committed to beautifying customers in their entirety, the team of stylists also oversees an onsite boutique, where racks of chic blouses, flowery dresses, and designer jeans make it an ideal venue for fashion hunting or games of pin the tail on the mannequin.
Tucked within E-Clips Salon & Boutique, Beautiful Transformations lives up to its name by revamping clients’ looks with permanent cosmetics, eyelash extensions, and waxing services for women and men. Permanent-makeup artists can help to define facial features—such as the fading lips and brows—by inking natural pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. They can also add fluttering, flattering effects to the eyes with individual synthetic-mink lash extensions, which are designed to be applied one by one to the natural lashes.
Armed with nothing more than a piece of cotton thread, the technicians at Brow Spa 24 deftly remove unwanted hair from clients’ faces and bodies. The completely chemical-free process can mold eyebrows into arches that best complement clients’ facial structure or trick people into thinking they're St. Louis. Below the neck, they twist thread over arms and legs, evicting any hair they come in contact with. Patrons can also lend their faces to a cosmetologist for a fluttery set of eyelash extensions or decorate their body with an intricate henna tattoo.
