At New Attitudes Salon, talented stylists and aestheticians pamper clients with a spectrum of hair, skin, and body treatments. To keep hairdos in line and up to date, a CHI master educator can glide her scissors through locks or apply a flattering, ammonia-free color. Facials employ potent ingredients such as volcanic ash and glycolic acid to tighten pores and even out tone, and body scrubs refresh below-chin skin with mixtures of sea salt and organic essential oils. Treatment rooms fill with therapeutic scents of vanilla, lavender, and peppermint during spa appointments, ensuring clients leave with minds as calm as the audience at a snail race.

For more than 20 years, master stylist Kelly Anne has led a seasoned team of beauticians known to transform ordinary clients into magnets of positive attention with professional products and a menu of tress-taming services. The skilled hairdressers, many having more than 15 years of experience, wax away undesired head-threads and beautify the strands clients want to keep through cuts, coloring, and Global Keratin deep-conditioning treatments. To stay abreast of today's latest hairstyling techniques, the salon's dedicated staff regularly attends continued-education courses and hacks Vidal Sassoon’s email account.

B'yond Style Hair Studio's team of stylists personalize each of their services, whether prepping brides-to-be with formal updos or clearing away unwanted hair with waxing services. They spend time consulting with clients before performing any of their hair, nail, or skin services, learning about their clients' lifestyle and personal tastes. After designer cuts, the team further tailors the experience by instructing their clients on how to reproduce the look using products at home.

The staff members at Studio 1 Hair Designers have a not-so-secret weapon—Redken professional color. For clients who want to try a shade without playing for keeps, they use demipermanent shades, which fade gradually with time. To cover grays, they employ permanent color. Their ombre treatments lend locks an edgy appearance, and color-maintenance sessions keep coiffures well hued. In addition to color treatments, the studio's designers texturize, cut, style, and condition hair, as well as tend to nails and skin.

Ania Hair Studio & Spa's stylists fear no wave, corkscrew, or kink that comes their way. With their certification from Ouidad, a line of curl-centric products, and their trademarked curly-hair salon techniques, the only curl they don't tackle professionally comes with a roast-beef sandwich at Arby's. Their team is comprised of stylists of every skill level, from beginner to master artist, but they all work closely with their clients to find the cut or color that suits them best. In the spa department, aestheticians pamper skin with facials and waxing services, as well as eyelash extensions and mani-pedis. Massage therapists, alternatively, soothe muscles with various bodywork modalities, reiki, and herbal steam. The studio itself features a modern, urban aesthetic, with a corrugated-metal ceiling hovering over painted exposed vents and track lighting. Yet wood accents, granite floor tiles, winsome yellow orb lighting, and a smattering of plants lend the space an eclectic, decorative vibe. You'll also discover wicker chairs padded with brown leather cushions—even individual items cull their aesthetic influences from disparate yet complementary sources, like a basketball arena outfitted with a slip 'n' slide for players to cool off after each dunk.
