Most artists use a brush and paint. Michelle Como uses foils, shampoo, and dye. Sure, she's technically a stylist, but she treats each service as an artform. Michelle owns Pure Color Bar Salon, where she spends her days sculpting and coloring hair. In addition to color treatments and highlights, she specializes in keratin smoothing treatments to get rid of curls, frizz, and misplaced crazy straws. Her coworkers produce stunningly complex nail art, with stripes and swirls peppered with little gems fastened in place with adhesive.

Crush Salon and Spa's diverse services run the gamut from beauty to relaxation, including hot-stone massages, keratin straightening treatments, and a full-fledged spray-tan business. The staff cuts hair for women, men, and children, applies professional makeup, and rejuvenates complexions with deep-cleansing facials. In addition to these conventional salon services, Spray U Tan—located inside Crush—focuses exclusively on airbrush tanning, bronzing clients' bodies from head to toe, conjuring golden skin tones the way alchemists conjure excuses for why they seem to never actually turn anything into gold.
As clients enter the earth-toned domain of Angelique LaBoo's eponymous massage center, they smell the scent of sweet basil. Angelique claims this helps to clear the mind, readying the body to rid itself of the emotional and mental stress that can throw it out of balance. In private treatment rooms, she whisks tightness and tension from each muscle, using an oil and lotion combination that enables her to harness the best properties of each. Though she specializes in holistic cranio-sacral and reiki techniques, Angelique also takes therapeutic approaches to help relieve symptoms of musculo-skeletal problems, such as plantar fasciitis, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and stiff backs from filling in for an Olympic ring taking a lunch break.

They achieve this through detoxifying holistic treatments such as colon-hydrotherapy that clears out the body's pipe works and infrared-sauna sessions that promote perspiration, thus removing toxins through the pores. To achieve healthy skin and appearances, they also use Endermologie technology to tone it and reduce cellulite, as well as a variety of anti-aging products and facial treatments.
