At His and Hers Elegant Edge Hair Salon, expertly trained hairdressers cut and style clients’ hair using Redken and Paul Mitchell products and make tresses soft and shiny with conditioning treatments. Other services include updos, waxing, gel nails, pedicures, and shellac manicures. This laid-back salon takes its energy from the bubbling sound of friendly stylist consultations and decor that includes brightly colored walls, pop-art prints of celebrities such as Audrey Hepburn, and an in-house pup named Faye, who wanders around inspecting the latest hairstyles.
Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Myriah Hinchey strives to restore vitality and promote longevity through a bevy of spa services and preventive medicines. The one-hour Swedish massage sees a licensed massage therapist mollycoddling sinews with deep, firm strokes designed to improve circulation and release pent-up tension. Toxins are lured out of lymph nodes and muscular lairs with nothing more than the therapist's dexterous digits and a candy bar dangling from a fishing line.
Shear Elegance's stylists aim to please, whether tailoring formal updos for special occasions or cutting and coloring manes for quotidian elegance. The crew's services are backed by a guarantee, and they round out each service with a do-it-yourself lesson that equips clients with tips and techniques for re-creating their new look at home or on a jealous twin. Haircare specialists will even sometimes perform a complimentary shampoo and style for patrons who are having a bad day.
Alluring Beauty Spa's host of age-defying technologies lifts, slims, and smoothes skin. Spa owner Rosa Roberts oversees a staff well-versed in performing high-tech treatments such as Medi-Lift toning, which evens out furrows that arise naturally from age or from crinkling foreheads in confusion during Pauly Shore movies. Body services such as VelaShape work to sculpt frames, and facials enlist LED therapy and deep-pore cleansing to light up visages with newfound radiance. Those unhappy about their follicles can turn to gentle waxing services or encourage growth with hair-restoration treatments.

Kasandra Lambert and Kei Huynh, the husband-and-wife team behind Live Well(ness) LLC, make their living with their hands. They're both trained massage therapists, and chronic pain stands little chance against their various techniques.
Kasandra specializes in deep-tissue and prenatal massage, easing away tension and helping expectant mothers cope with the physical demands of pregnancy. Kei, on the other hand, is a master of the assisted, yoga-like stretches of Thai massage. Though their techniques differ, the couple shares a common goal. "We see a lot of relief around here," says Kasandra. "People ... come in and seem very negative, but leave positive and refreshed."
The team at Beauty 911 Skin Lounge has the skill set, training, and equipment needed to rescue skin from a wide array of epidermal maladies. Skincare specialist Elena Melendez calls upon more than 10 years of experience to help determine which treatments are best suitable for each individual. Elena and company practice a distinctly Peruvian approach to skincare and pampering sessions, which incorporate skin-nourishing products imported from Peru. The lounge's vast menu helps reduce hyperpigmentation and fine lines with the Maximum Beauty 911 peel, and targets large pores and acne with the Reaffirming mask. The volcanic body wrap helps ease skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, whereas noninvasive vacuum treatments aim to diminish the appearance of cellulite and bread crumbs.
