At Bangz! Bridgeville, the sun sheds its light through floor-to-ceiling windows on newly primped hairdos and nourished skin. As stylists crop split ends across from ornate wooden dressers, other staff members draw from botanical Danné Skin Revision formulas to subtract signs of acne and sun damage. Even the body's smallest trappings receive beautifying treatments: eyelash extensions augment fluttering lids, and colorful shellac manicures resist chipping without forcing patrons to type with their elbows.
Equal parts salon, spa, and fitness center, Studio G boasts a seasoned staff that applies its expertise to make clients look and feel great. Spa treatments such as mud wraps, facials, and massages refresh bodies and provide relaxation.

Studio G's personal trainer Lisa Saunders helps bodies to release endorphins through focused exercises, and the on-site steam and dry saunas aid in stationary sweat quests.

Beyond a towering, slate-colored archway that looms over a façade of large windows, Salon Eye Candy's feminine interior merges elements of old and new. Surrounding modern styling stations styled after bedroom bureaus and manicure tables repurposed out of antique writing desks, the undulating branches of a hand-painted tree mural swirl across a whitewashed wall as a chandelier lends its eye-catching sparkle overhead. Stylists tend to heads with diligent snips of scissors and dollops of professional Wella hair color, while cosmetologists highlight facial features with cosmetic and eyelash applications. Meanwhile, nail techs refine extremities and lacquer nails with OPI polish and CND no-chip shellac manicures, and spray tans gild bodies in golden, UV-free hues to suggest a recent tropical vacation or romantic tryst with a film-award statuette.
