Hearing the words "carve and slice" in the same sentence as the words ?beauty treatment? probably brings to mind painful plastic surgery, but at TranZitions Hair Salon, it's actually a service for your curls. Ouidad-certified stylists perform the carve-and-slice technique to cut down on the unwanted volume that causes a "pyramid look" while still defining and plumping up your ringlets. It's one of a select few Ouidad procedures at the salon, which also employs products from Paul Mitchell, Goldwell, Kenra, Redken, and other high-profile brands. The hair mavens administer treatments that range from custom highlights and complex updos to a 15-minute bang trim, a far chicer way to keep your hair out of your eyes than installing an awning on your glasses.
Besides their cuts and color applications, the staff also performs waxing, makeup, and nail services, which can include extras such as an aromatherapy hand massage. Additionally, skincare specialists exfoliate complexions with facials and microdermabrasion.
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. Through services such as hair coloring and UV-cured Shellac manicures, budding young beauticians gussy up and de-stress clients at their own stations that are each decked out in customized decor to reflect their unique personalities or a crippling fear of Barbicide.
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.
Studio 510's experienced aestheticians refurbish earthly tenements during soothing aromatherapy facials. This pore-purifying procedure expurgates derma defilements while balancing and enlivening epidermises. Mug menders apply enzyme peels to remove complexion-clogging layers caused by eating and bathing in potato chips. After extractions, a skin-succoring mask envelops faces and a hot-stone massage, performed with a therapeutic blend of essential oils, rejuvenates feet, arms, and shoulders. Studio 510 recommends you hydrate before aromatherapy facials, marathons, and cryogenic freezing.
At this beauty lounge specializing in clinical skincare, technicians each have their own ways of turning back the clock.

They also help clients relax with stress-relieving massages.
In addition to their skin and body specialties, Azul Nails Waxing Beauty also treats hands and feet to professional nail care services. During every manicure and pedicure, staffers fill enamel pedicure bowls with fresh water instead of using whirlpool footbath; use all-natural hand and foot scrubs made onsite daily with fruits, veggies, and essential oils; and shape nails with new, disposable files, buffers, and other mani-pedi instruments. Manicures are enhanced with soothing options such as hot-milk and almond softening soaks, honey-butter cream, and organic bamboo scrubs.
