When Debra Keller, a licensed massage therapist who specializes in prenatal, fertility, postpartum, and infant massages, opened HMH Wellness Center in 2000, she envisioned it as a wellness studio for pregnant women. And expectant mothers can still find plenty of pampering options here, including Baby on Board and other massages. But Keller and her team have also expanded their menu to include cosmetic services, such as body wraps and face-lift massages. Clients who want to learn more about the therapeutic services?such as whether they were invented by Thomas Edison?can attend one of HMH's training and consulting seminars.

After emerging from a cloud of clipped keratin, the shimmer of a synthetic sun will bestow its delicate glow upon your locks through natural-looking partial highlights. These sun-kissable treatments add rich, summery dimension to dull strands, while empowering locks with the ability to illuminate the floor of your car when you drop your keys at night. A detailed styling will fine-tune your finished 'do.
B.Y.O Color Salon is a full-service salon that transforms weathered manes into vibrant coiffures with a wide range of hair services. As its name coyly suggests, B.Y.O.C offers professional hair-coloring services with a cost-reducing twist. Namely, it allows patrons to bring in their own boxed color, which a skilled stylist then deftly applies and cleanly shampoos away for $20+, saving customers and their home bathrooms from scenes of drippy DIY disaster. Customers can then style their own noodle nests at no charge or have them professionally done up for an extra $7+. Snip away fist-sized clumps of dried spackle with a steady-handed bang trim ($5+) or men’s haircut ($17+), or the head can be highlighted with a full ($69+) or partial foil ($49+), or a root touch-up ($40+). Hair can be waxed away altogether with whippet-quick clean-ups for the eyebrow ($15+), lip ($10+), and bikini area ($30+), to name just a few. Lengthen those lashes ($165+) or touch-up existing extensions ($60+). Ensure hair helmets are maintained for the gridiron or an equally grueling fantasy water-polo draft with today’s style-studded Groupon to B.Y.O Color.

Beauty Bar From the exterior, the early 20th-century farmhouse overflows with colonial charm, its stately white siding climbing three stories, complemented on one side by a tall brick chimney. Inside, Beauty Bar’s lofty 7,000-square-foot salon snaps visitors back into the present with track lighting, immaculate lines, and pine-hued wood floors. Crystal chandeliers hang in the nail room where technicians perform cocktail-inspired mani-pedis with titles such as Limoncello and Pink Martini, and photos of Audrey Hepburn whisper uninvited pointers about buffing and missed polish spots. The custard-hued walls of the lofted third-floor space surround 12 cream-colored styling chairs, where specialists transform coifs with the aid of Bumble and bumble, Pureology, and Beauty Bar's signature concoctions. Private spa spaces provide a serene setting for waxing, massages, and playfully named facials such as the Crybaby and Oh Behave, along with all-over pampering services including body scrubs and aromatherapy steam showers.
