A trio of working moms, each with a different hair type and a limited schedule, founded the styling studio with the goal of helping women feel their best even at their busiest. During basic styling sessions, the lounge’s pros wash, condition, and style locks with Moroccanoil products. Other services range from keratin straightening treatments that control frizz and add shine to up-dos worthy of glamorous occasions or zero gravity chambers. Even lashes can leave with a new 'do after stylists adorn them with mink extensions.

Doctor of Chiropractic Rick Palazzo uses a trifecta of health services to fully rehab injured and achy patients.

Michelle, the licensed massage therapist behind Strong Hands Massage Therapy, truly does have strong hands: they’re the same hands she used block, jab, and swing her way to a fourth-degree black belt in karate. At her Ramsey massage studio, however, she uses her strength for healing rather than combat.
Before starting any massage, Michelle consults with each client to determine their individual needs and goals. Then she soothes muscles and connective tissues with custom-tailored kneads and gliding strokes. The treatments can relieve not only pain and tension, but issues such as high blood pressure, depression, and anxiety caused by listening to the Jeopardy! theme song on repeat too many times. Clients can also opt for pampering details such as hot stones or organic moisturizers infused with French chamomile, Egyptian basil, and other fragrant herbs and botanicals.
