Honey Comb Salon’s skilled tan technicians produce long-lasting custom glows with airbursh-tanning services. During the approximately 30-minute session, airbrush techs deftly spray entire body frames with a sunless elixir, transforming pale physiques into bronze figures. The moisturizing formula leaves skin soft and supple, ready to flaunt at beach outings or cafeteria conga lines.
“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.
Inside Colleen’s Family Hair Care, the stylists at Hair Goddess welcome men and women into their chairs for haircuts, color services, and beard trims. Apart from shearing up overlong lengths, the team elongates locks with Cinderella hair extensions and extinguishes frizz with smoothing Brazilian blowouts. When they’re not tending scalps with hair services, versatile staffers primp façades with brow, lip, and chin waxing.
At Frankie's, empty stomachs fuel up on eclectic menu selections including hot dogs, sausages and sandwiches made to order using locally sourced ingredients. For hot dogs, teeth sink through Chicago-style fixings into an all-beef link kept from inflating into a life preserver by the constraints of a poppy-seed bun. Sandwich savants layer italian beef on top of fresh french bread, top the meat in a choice of mozzarella, sweet peppers, and hot giardiniera, and then deliver it to taste buds alongside a mild italian sausage. Patrons turn toward the restaurant's chalkboard menu to order up a Meatball Sammich and scribble out calculations for the gravitational pull of a Portabella Sammich, which lures mouths from their meat trance with a marinated mushroom cap topped in tomato and cucumber.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers of America, Inc. peppers the nation, doling out slim-down tips honed during the course of three decades in business. Each center staffs a physician, who, in tandem with a team of skilled counselors, selects one of six weight-loss and lifestyle programs to guide each client toward his or her desired results. The center’s sextet of plans are tailored to those who prefer not to exercise, those who travel often, those who cook at home, and those who cook in nonfunctional stage kitchens. Patients chat with their counselors often, soaking up the tips the staffers learn from continual training programs. Clients are encouraged to build a bond with their counselor, as camaraderie not only eases the process, but also improves one’s chances of finding a lifelong three-legged-race partner.

Paulina Esthetics Boutique channels the beautifying talents of three aestheticians, a cosmetologist, and a massage therapist, into a menu of spa services performed with high-quality products. Soft and hard waxes gently snatch fuzz from sensitive skin and serums tailored to specific flaws renew faces and reverse the signs of too much time spent with shar pei puppies. An organic airbrush-tanning formula bronzes bodies to one of three sun-kissed sheens, and colorful Lash Candy extensions frame eyes with a rainbow of sparkly hues. The boutique salon is outfitted with dark woods and trendy furnishings, like vintage chic furniture and ambient lighting.
