Paula Ivins Kingston, a styling veteran of 25 years whose coif creations have been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and Allure, guides Lucid's Aveda-savvy tress tamers in sculpting personalized, contemporary manes. Stylists invigorate black-and-white follicles with kaleidoscopic infusions of all-over color ($50+) or ribbons of highlighting hues ($50+). Obtain deftly trimmed and decorated digits with a spa manicure ($32) or pedicure ($60) before bathing hair in a blow-dry's balmy waves ($25+) to achieve the slickness of an ocelot wearing sunglasses. Guests can achieve complete aesthetic harmony by pairing pruned head topiaries with professionally arched eyebrows ($18+ for waxing). Visage artists can unearth natural radiance with a sheen of makeup ($35) or introduce clients and beginner mimes to face-embellishing basics during an instructional session ($50).
