As fatigued bodies enter The Root of You Salon and Day Spa, music and soothing aromas envelop them. At the salon, stylists cut and color hair, care for nails, and apply makeup for special events and momentous peace talks. Aestheticians present a choice of eight facials that each come with a light massage and hand treatment. The body studio's massage therapists chase stress away with modalities such as warm-stone, aromatherapy, and sports massage. During private parties, the space transforms into a festival of flowers, gift baskets, and catering organized by an event manager and a hostess.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxen masters at European Wax Center. Before your defoliation, you'll be slathered like so much beef brisket with the Center's calming cleanser and a pre-depilatory oil that fights irritation and redness. A very special, alcohol-free blend of polymers and beeswax is specially designed to uproot hair with nary a pang of pain. Afterward, your newly smooth skin will be pampered with an ingrown-hair-and-breakout-despising solution.

Arena Salon and Day Spa’s experienced staff of patient and dedicated European-trained stylists expertly beautifies exteriors with customized aesthetic treatments. Arena’s modern deco decor greets guests as they recline in salon chairs to receive a transformative cut, color, and style. Other patrons sink into plush treatment beds as aestheticians rejuvenate epidermises with microdermabrasions and facials. A sea-salt body polish exfoliates skin and a Vichy shower treatment showers guests with warm water, which aims to stimulate immune systems before bodies are dried by the gentle flapping of fairy wings as they flutter about the salon. Ensuring clients stay in tip-top shape at all times, Arena is open seven days a week and offers lunchtime spa appointments.
The staff at Eternity Nails knows more than just nails. Besides their three different manicures and pedicures, they provide gentle waxing and threading services.

Lash extensions and massage therapy round out their litany of pampering options.
