Antoinette "Ditto" Soares has been in the beauty industry for more than 16 years, working as a master stylist at salons in New York and Florida before opening up her own studio. The cheerful hairdresser prides herself in the individual attention she provides her clients, making sure to take time before every appointment to discuss desired outcomes and determine flattering styles.

All-natural products line the shelves at each of Rituals Salon's two locations. Created by Aveda, these hair serums forgo unpronounceable ingredients for plant oils and nonpetroleum-based minerals, all for the good of the both the consumer and the environment. The salon owners follow Aveda's lead at Rituals, where they invite clients to stop in for chemical-free highlights and chic haircuts performed by Aveda-trained stylists. After the stylists show off their talents, makeup artists step in to dress up eyes and lips and teach novice cosmetics users that eye shadow is to be swept across the eyelid, not across the retina.
T&D Nails & Spa's attentive staff of technicians calls upon years of experience every time a staffer brushes a vibrant coat of polish across nails or swipes away a strip of unwanted hair. Deluxe manicures and pedicures lavish extremities with skin-smoothing masks, paraffin waxes, and sugar scrubs that gently peel away dead cells and expired candy bracelets. The team can also beautify nails with soak-off Gelish and pink-and-white manicures. Their expertise extends to the full body with waxing treatments that swiftly remove hair from the face, limbs, and bikini area.
Pandora Salons oversees a staff of stylists and aestheticians fulfilling their beauty-vocation callings. The salon boasts several independent workspaces where her brood of beauty-school hatchlings builds a loyal client base while personalizing their own roster of treatments.

After more than 30 years of business, Tonya's Nail Salon has become an area favorite—not only for its nail services, but also for its complimentary glasses of wine and cups of coffee from the beverage bar.
