For more than 20 years, Racine Salon and Spa has been a destination for makeovers, anti-aging treatments, and even an Oscar-nominated documentary or two. The salon and spa's varied services range from haircuts and extensions to the signature Oceans Racine body wrap—it includes a sea-mud wrap that's made with hydrating French seaweed, a stop in the seven-head steam shower, and an application of toning body cream.
But beyond beautifying and relaxing clients, the staff at Racine Salon also does its best to serve the community. Since 2003, the salon has been home to the Mondays at Racine cancer care program, which provides complimentary services for cancer patients. So the salon was a natural fit when HBO sought to make a documentary spotlighting how cancer patients respond to hair loss. The resulting documentary, Mondays at Racine, went on to nab an Oscar nomination and numerous film-festival awards.
Tweens get a taste of the VIP life an time they come to Glitz & Glamour. The full-service salon is all about hosting celebrations that combine the pampering treatments of a spa day and opportunities to party and sing karaoke in a private suite. Not every visit needs to be a full party, though: Glitz & Glamour also offers everyday styling sessions and makeovers. Pedicures can include soaks in a bubbling foot bath, facials feature luscious chocolate masks, and youngsters can make their own lip gloss or ice cream sugar scrub. With its bold pink walls, tufted neoclassical couches, and crystal chandeliers, the spa exudes whimsy while remaining elegant at the same time.

Like the offspring of a flamingo and a zebra, Glitz & Glamor is black, white, and pink all over. Its vibrant shades surround tweens during two-hour parties. At the behest of tiara-crowned birthday girls, five guests gather inside a VIP party suite. They don pink bathrobes before noshing on pizza and singing karaoke alongside a big-screen TV. When stylists aren't hosting celebrations, they operate the establishment as a traditional salon and spa. During spa mani-pedis and chocolate deluxe facials, they also give mothers and daughters a chance to bond as well as two people hugging in a pool of super glue.
Wrapped in beige and russet tones, SoHo Urban Wax's private rooms cloister both male and female clients in warm serenity as expert aestheticians uproot unwanted hairs with dexterous digits and utmost discretion. Hard wax seizes strands from sensitive areas such as underarms, the upper lip, and funny bones, while warmer soft-wax strips lift fuzz from more durable spots, such as wool coats. While patrons perch on the red-leather banquette in the studio's waiting room, they can sip a proffered cup of coffee or gargle with hot tea while scanning black-and-white photos of the city.
