Style-seeking clients have relied on Salon Celine for more than 20 years.

Meanwhile, across the room, a dedicated brow specialist tidies eyes, and makeup artists and stylists spruce up brides with wedding-oriented beauty treatments. To pamper even the busiest of clients, the receptionist pencils in special evening and weekend appointments by request, and a retail boutique provides Moroccanoil, Pureology, Joico, Matrix, Goldwell, and Coppola products to use at home.

Hanging lamps throw flickers of amber light onto the dark walls of Tea Spa's lobby, a tranquil cove that foreshadows the pampering performed beyond the front room. Included on a list of Washingtonian magazine's "Great Day Spas 2013," the spa's licensed massage therapists use varied massage techniques, essential oils, and hot towels during bodywork treatments such as a signature massage. Clients can also use their brief reprieve from the harshly lit outside world to nourish skin with a vitamin-infused facial or to decompress in the infrared sauna and bid adieu to toxins before they have a chance to settle in and wire the body for basic cable.
Beers and haircuts might seem like an unusual combination, but they go hand in hand at The Suite Barbershop. After serving guests a chilled beverage, the experienced barbers work to create unique looks. The crew specializes in dramatic, eye-catching looks for men, from throwback styles with side parts and pompadours to high-altitude mowhawks and precision fades.
The shop itself has been designed with a similar mix of the old fashioned and contemporary: the black-and-white wallpaper is dappled with colorful pictures of classic cars and modern paintings by local artists. A mock fireplace filled with candles harks back to Victorian parlors, when all fires were too polite to fully burn.
