“C’est la vie” is a French phrase typically used to describe an unfortunate, yet inevitable outcome. The stylists at C'est La Vie Salon flip that phrase on its head, cutting and coloring hair to ensure that their clients never accept lackluster style as just another part of life. In addition to conditioning hair with MoroccanOil treatments and products from Kaaral, Abba, and Silis, the salon’s staff coats nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish and brightens skin with 90-minute Eve Taylor facials.
Nailing a job interview, taking a spiritual retreat, and heading out for a night with friends—these disparate activities all work to boost one’s Oola. Fun to say and satisfying to achieve, you attain Oola when several core factors of your life are thriving. Oola might mean that you’re feeling good about your fitness level, finances, career, faith, or relationship with your family, friends, and ant-farm residents. The folks at Oola hope to boost Oola levels nationwide by helping their clients map out their life’s goals and how they will go about achieving them. The service also boosts Oola quotients by introducing their members to cool businesses and offering discounts on services including massages, fitness, and mani-pedis.
The beauty mavens at PHD Salon & Spa have been refreshing clients’ visages with waxing services and facials for more than 30 years. During the enzyme facial, technicians coat faces with specialized serums whose proteins help expel dead, dull skin cells and steadily brightening visages over the course of 30 minutes. Posttreatment, a conditioning moisturizer with SPF wards off dry skin and unwanted advances from amorous sunlight. Opt for the spa package, and follicles will relinquish the fruits of their labor to professional hair pullers, who deftly depilate brows with minimal pain.
The massage therapists at Anointed Hands use bodywork techniques to enhance the health and well-being of entire families. Clients of all ages—including expectant mothers, infants, and children aged 2–16 years old—gain serenity and awareness of their bodies through services tailored to address their individual needs. Swedish and deep-tissue massages release stress and soothe pain, leaving clients able to laugh and smile a little easier.

Nationally and state-certified massage therapist Leah Noel offers an array of massage services at Seva Therapeutic Massage that ease pain and calm all corners of the body. Deep-tissue sessions use calculated, firm pressure to break down knots and improve muscle mobility, and hot-stone therapy combines smooth, heated river rocks with Swedish massage techniques. Leah's unique mother-to-be massages target areas of the body affected by pregnancy, and signature sessions allow her to collaborate with patients for 30–90 minutes of customized motion. Leah can also journey to the workplace, offering seated chair massages for tense workers or shiatsu for jammed copy machines.
Licensed massage therapist Reeyanana Cha eases muscle tension and promotes blood circulation during 60-minute Swedish massages. In the comfort of a private room, Reeyanana channels Olympic doggy paddlers to loosen tight muscles with five styles of long, flowing hand strokes. Skilled fingers knead into biceps and beneath shoulder blades to release hard-to-reach knots, and hand vibration techniques cultivate blood flow deep in sensitive muscles. Before Reeyanana sends clients back into the world, cross-fiber friction produces therapeutic warmth in appendages and rhythmic tapping to the tune of the Star-Spangled Banner instills bodies with an invigorating sense of freedom.
