Honey light radiates from a gilded Old-World chandelier at Joseph Zell and Company, where silver curtains and antique Victorian furniture evoke an eclectic European style that's carefully curated by Eve Zell herself. This opulence and sophistication extends to the company's full range of indulgent spa and styling treatments, which exude the artsy expertise learned by Joseph Zell during his time as the featured stylist at Peter Coppola on New York's Madison Avenue. Watched by baroque portraits, stylists selected for their artistic abilities and collaborative natures sculpt hair into impressive new looks and rejuvenate tresses with products by L’anza. Clients may also request indulgent OPI-powered mani-pedis or retreat to a immaculate private treatment room for Éminence Organic Skin Care facials, yam-and-pumpkin peels, or waxing sessions.

The beauty professionals at SC Inspire enhance clients' natural lash lines with expertly applied extensions. Instead of simply adhering a strip to lids or taping a bunch of baby bird's feathers around eyeballs, the lash techs carefully attach individual lashes to eyes one by one. The lashes vary in length and fullness, so it's up to clients to determine how dramatic their new glance will be.
Inside the mint-green Southern Roots Salon, hairstylists remove dirt and oil from strands, banish straggled split ends, and add dimension with highlights and skilled shearing techniques.
