1604 Day Spa and Salon’s staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians fight the effects of stress and aging with nourishing facials and relaxing messages. In a warm, private room, back pain succumbs to the healing hands of a skilled masseuse who either soothes away stress with Swedish massage or employs deep-tissue techniques to evict hunkered-down strains more quickly than a long and drawn-out civil suit. Alternatively, seasoned aestheticians tailor an Aveda Elemental Nature facial to fit the client’s skin type, pore-ailments, and full-body bear suit, freshening and smoothing faces with naturally derived Aveda products.
True Radiance MediSpa offers a wide range of beauty solutions beyond conventional facials and wearing magazine covers with the eyes cut out. Clients can sign up for photo-rejuvenation using intense pulsed light, which can ameliorate sun damage and reduce redness from rosacea, or try Botox or dermal fillers to combat signs of aging. Other services include the noninvasive liposuction alternative Lipo-Ex, the eyelash-enhancing prescription drug Latisse, and laser hair removal for a permanent sleekness.

Stylists and aestheticians work side by side at Vintage13 Salon, performing modern techniques in a charming atmosphere that harks back to a bygone era. Soft music plays while mirrors with quaintly scalloped edges provide an old-fashioned frame for hairstyles created with the help of strand-smoothing Brazilian Blowouts or updos fortified with Kenra products. Skincare experts enhance the exfoliating effects of organic and detoxifying facials with a soothing reflexology massage of the face, hand, arms, and décolleté, and also stimulate cell turnover with LED light therapy designed to restore moisture, firmness, and the ability to taste colors.
After treatments, patrons may wind down with one of Vintage13's complimentary mimosas or check out an antique-style chest of drawers bearing handmade jewelry for sale, which credits regular exfoliation for its shiny, ageless finish.
The refurbished home lounges so sleepily against the tree-lined property that it is hard not to knock on the door before entering. Inside, though, the salon is wide awake. The walls swell with installments of deep orange and verdigris, which crackle against the dark wooden hair stations and matching mirrors. Chatter drifts from stylists in individual consultations as they prepare to clip, color, treat, or extend tresses with Paul Mitchell and natural Carol's Daughter products.
Quieter still, the throaty rasp of emery boards draws eyes to nail technicians armed with warm oil, paraffin wax, and long-lasting OPI polish. Recognizing that the body deserves coddling too, aestheticians promote circulation with leg massages or improve air circulation by throwing one of the salon chairs through a closed window.
Boasting more than 11 years of skincare experience, owner and aesthetician Caroline Mercer Bange courts countenances at Le Petite Skin Boutique, tucked inside Styling Studios. Bange performs a variety of skincare services catered to each client's dermal needs and desires. She summons the powers of organic products to restore exteriors with 100% vegetable-based lash tints, waxing sessions, diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments, and seven types of facials, each designed to raise happiness quotients by a factor of four to five puppy snuggles.
