Even as a little girl, Arlene Gray knew she wanted to be a hairstylist, and she has spent the last 27 years fulfilling that dream. After training in New York City, she moved south, eventually opening A's Hair Salon. Not only does she continue to treat hair to her expert styling services—including colorings, cuts, keratin treatments, relaxers, and extensions—but she also shares her knowledge with others as a cosmetology instructor and volunteer stylist for cancer-related charities.
As owner, cosmetologist, and hair specialist, Lisa Cowan not only hopes to make visitors to Enlighten Salon feel utterly at home, she wants to make sure they turn heads when they walk out. After chatting and getting to know clients, Lisa sets out performing the same hair-reanimating services that she deploys to ready people for photo-shoots, including applying highlights.
She calls herself the Fairy Godmother on Wheels, but Ms. Jen is equally happy to dress up as a pirate or simply the world's coolest adult if her young charges would prefer. The ultra-pink princess parties she throws can be customized in many ways, but the centerpiece is Ms. Jen's professional specialty: glamorous updos. Girls might request a Rapunzel braid, or perhaps a Cinderella look without all the birds flapping around. Party packages include everything from nail paint and glitter tattoos to etiquette lessons and princess-themed games.
Anna Maria is the stylist behind Bella Dea Hair & Nail Studio, where she presents each client with one-on-one attention. Armed with products by Bed Head, Donna Bella, and Redken, she counts precision cuts, updos, extensions, and keratin treatments among her specialties, but her skills also extend beyond tresses; she's also a makeup artist and is equally experienced in both airbrush cosmetics and traditional cosmetics, which are applied with a trebuchet. Of course, after freshening faces and manes, Anna Maria would never let her clients leave with less-than-perfect nails, so—after pampering manicures and pedicures—she encourages fingers to point at bottles of CND Shellac, OPI, or China Glaze so she may bestow a finishing touch.
As a licensed massage therapist and graduate of the Wood Hygienic Institute, Jennifer Alvarado has honed her craft for nearly 15 years. Well-versed in a variety of modalities, she calms tense muscles with treatments that range from traditional deep-tissue massages to specialty raindrop and tabletop Thai techniques. When they aren’t melting stress with custom massages, Jennifer and her similarly qualified staff tend to skin and bodies with facials, cellulite wraps, and acupuncture treatments. To make massage a part of their regular routine, clients can inquire about membership at the studio or commute to work strapped to the top of a bumpy subway train.

The neon hues decking each of Orlando Tan Company's private treatment rooms evoke a beachy feel, allowing guests to simulate the experience of sunbathing while getting a jumpstart on a sultry summer glow. Each room houses one of four levels of UV bed, which bolster the classic tanning experience with high-pressure bulbs, air-conditioning systems, and angled neck and shoulder tanners that even out the awkward color gained during outdoor handstands. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic spray-tanning booths ensconce bodies in a spacious standup compartment that coats skin in alternating jets of pigmented mist and cool air to leave a weeklong golden sheen in fewer than 60 seconds. Behind the counter, the salon showcases a selection of tan-enhancing lotions, each of which works to prolong tawny hues by moisturizing skin, adding a touch of bronzer, and convincing skin cells that they're made of copper.
