Customers who flock to Alter Ego Salon & Spa may find themselves feeling like completely different people when they leave. But though the stylists approach each corrective color treatment and cutting-edge haircut with deft precision, this transformation is more than just physical. It also stems from the pampering add-ons that accompany many services and help patrons shed the mental and environmental stressors that plagued them in their past life. Each shampoo and style, for example, includes a tress-nourishing treatment chosen specifically for the individual's hair needs, and nearly every hair service is enhanced with a stress-relieving massage that helps release scalp tension wrought by over-styling or heavy thinking. Waxing treatments ditch the hard stuff in favor of a soft soy-based solution, and deluxe mani-pedis go above and beyond basic pampering with luxurious foot masks that incorporate French cocoa, pumpkin essential oils, and red wine.
