Toni Johnson's highly trained stylists are experts in the art of snipping, dyeing, and charming the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Your stylist will sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then masterfully glide careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting his or her creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of anyplace. Men's cuts start at $25, while women can shed unwanted tresses starting at $35. Gravity-defying updos start at $35. For a more drastic approach to unwanted hair, Toni Johnson offers a variety of waxing services. Give your eyebrows some much-needed time apart (starting at $15), or decrease wind resistance on your lip and chin (starting at $12).
At Luv 2 Rub, a skilled massage therapist fights unwieldy stress and pesky muscle pains using deep-penetrating Swedish massages augmented by hot-stone therapy. The muscle mender, fully stocked with an assortment of oils that can target specific ailments, tailors each massage to work around patrons' individual needs, preferences, and vestigial dorsal fins. Tensed torsos settle in for their 60- or 90-minute sessions as caring hands employ the Swedish technique's long, flowing strokes to help induce relaxation and ply muscle tissue. By tracing taut tendons with heated basalt stones, the anxiety-fighting guru can help increase blood circulation, reduce back pain, and promote a deeper understanding between man and rock.
A.J. at Hair Emporium pampers clients from head to toe with an arsenal of beautifying and relaxing services. The Garden State–inspired Jerseylicious mani-pedi applies a glamorous foil finish to trimmed fingernails as well as scrubbed and groomed toenails, and lasts about one week, dazzling passersby and temporarily stunning podiatrists. Durable gel polish adorns digits after a Shellac manicure, and cleansed and toned faces luxuriate under a seaweed mask during the 30-minute express facial. The one-hour body wrap commences with a bow-to-stern body scrub, followed by an ambrosial mud mask and moisturizer. While relaxers unwind in their earthen cocoons, skilled fingers massage the scalp and third eye for 15 minutes.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants.

Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
