Salon Zurell’s stylists start each haircut with an in-depth consultation, and end it with a styling lesson. Using this one-on-one approach, the staff imparts unparalleled wisdom during salon services, which include conditioning treatments, highlights, and perms. The salon also offers spa treatments such as waxing, mani-pedis, and facials performed with organic Éminence products that are completely free of harmful chemicals, additives, and other ingredients that will make dolphins cry.
Black accents stylishly pop against the purple walls of Jules Salon, surrounding clients in chic elegance synonymous with the styling crew’s hair-snipping abilities. With 16 years of experience of her own, the eponymous stylist proudly works alongside her handpicked staff—Gina, Julia (“JJ”), and Lindsay—updating coifs with precision cuts, expert color treatments, and a few other tricks hidden up their sleeves. Masterfully executed products by Alfaparf Milano take standard color treatments, such as full or partial highlights and full-blown color swaps, to a whole new level, and potent Blue Rain conditioning serums repair broken and damaged strands better than wallowing in a pint of ice cream and listening to “All by Myself” on loop. The team retexturizes curly-cued mop tops with La Brasiliana keratin treatments and adds hair-flip worthy length with professional extensions.
Kenneth Paul Salon's staff of savvy stylists pampers clients with a bevy of beautifying hair services. Women can tend to unruly head tresses with a cut and style, good for achieving a perfectly buoyant bob or luxurious long layers ($35). Gentlemen can relinquish wild man manes to a scissor-wielding follicle sculptor for a haircut, surrounding rugged mugs with firm strand frames ($17). A root coloring tints threads well below coiffure canopies ($65), and partial-foil highlights decorate head fur with dynamic shocks of color ($75). More than cuts and coloring, Kenneth Paul specializes in keratin treatments (starting at $300) and waxes brows, lips, and chins ($10 each). Customers must call ahead to schedule appointments.
The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Sammi Gene Salon and Spa delight patrons with relaxing massages and purifying body wraps. During the 60-minute European body massage, a muscle kneader coaxes tension from backs with dedicated strokes, gentle pressure, and promises of trips to the zoo. Clients who opt for the seaweed wrap can choose between two marine-grass modalities. The re-mineralizing seaweed wrap increases skin's capacity for moisture, imbuing it with a refreshed glow and raising the ire of jealous camels, and the detoxifying seaweed wrap first hydrates skin and then siphons away the absorbed fluid, leaving bodies svelte and clean.
Don't be fooled by its tranquil atmosphere and invigorating scents—Natural Balance LLC is no day spa. Owner Trish Eastwood and her team of seven certified therapists possess years of training in therapeutic massage and take a serious approach to their profession. Each no-nonsense massage incorporates ample communication in order for the specialists to ease their clients' particular knots and painful spots with deep kneads, gliding strokes, and nimble fingers. To enhance relaxation sessions, steamed towels, hot stones, and aromatic essential oils warm the muscles and invigorate the senses much like a nap in a bread oven.
Surrounded by the soothing tones of sage and cranberry, clients at Sohmage leave their worries at the door. Exfoliating scrubs, facials, and detoxifying wraps aim to boost appearances and overall health, whereas energy-healing sessions work to reroute the flow of energy that would otherwise be rerouted to power your neighbors' fridge.
