At Blue Bubble Express Laundry, do-it-yourself cleaners can make use of the laundromat's stainless-steel washers and dryers, which operate on a debit-card system to remove the need for ruining a pillowcase with quarter residue. While waiting for their spin cycles to finish, visitors can hang out in a waiting area equipped with televisions and WiFi.
Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
Staff members at A Touch of Beauty Salon and Spa pamper their clients from head to toe with treatments ranging from modern haircuts to essential-oil-infused pedicures. During hair services, stylists revamp coifs with haircuts and braided cornrows, and brighten tresses with all-over color or highlights. They also adorn locks with sew-in extensions, quick weaves, and custom-made wigs, ideal for adding instant glamour or thoroughly confusing the mailman. On the spa end of services, technicians customize facials to each client’s skin type. Body scrubs and wraps infused with African shea butter moisturize the skin, and manicures and pedicures pair with paraffin dips and peppermint oil to soften paws.

Hana Tan & Spa even gives clients that back-from-vacation glow by relaxing their minds during aqua massages and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.
If the news anchors in Palm Springs, California look terrific, they may have Aveda-trained master stylist Nicholas Ashmore to thank.
