The stylists and aestheticians at Salon 105 provide a pressure-free experience, from their friendly demeanors to their zero-pressure shampoo bowls, which feature built-in head rests to keep client necks from aching. They amenably perform facials, waxing, and all manner of hair services. Even the products they choose convey an earthy, worry-free vibe, such as L'Anza's flower-based line of "healing color care" serums, which extend hair color without the aid of a protective museum display case.
Brook Owens works with her clients to create new styles for special occasions or everyday life. The expert stylist specializes in blondes, and uses the Scruples Blazing Highlights system to add dimension to hair. Ms. Owens has also trained in many straightening and smoothing techniques.
Leading a staff that includes stylists, hair-color and extensions specialists, aestheticians, and physicians, Meno Michael and Kim Letter—master stylists and co-owners of Meno Michael Salon & Spa—pamper customers with aesthetic and medical-grade services. In the comfortable salon, which features lounge benches in the shampoo area, 12 styling stations, one spa room, and a nail area, stylists create classic and trendy looks and aestheticians perform soothing facials, waxing, and complimentary makeup applications.

The beauty artists at Ibiza Nails and Finest Nails pamper bodies with a range of spa treatments and embellish hands with luxurious European manicures and pedicures. During shellac manicures, skilled techs trim cuticles and shape nails before curing long-lasting shellac gel under a UV light. Body waxing, facials, and skin care services leave skin looking smooth and clean, while neck and shoulder massages soothe tense muscles.
White Lotus Day Spa encourages tranquility and rejuvenation through soothing body treatments, waxing, spray-tanning, and organic, all-natural skincare services. But it also encourages beauty by being beautiful itself. The spa?s front area lets in loads of light, thanks to a curved wall that?s made up of floor-to-ceiling windows as well as ornamental fixtures hanging from the ceiling and candles flecking the finely stained wood cabinetry. Blue and brown walls backdrop pottery, which evokes the beauty being sculpted beyond. With more than 30 types of natural chemical peels, the highly trained aestheticians can help keep skin in the best possible health, whether the client?s concern is overcoming hyperpigmentation or reversing the signs of aging. Customized massages, reflexology, bamboo chi infusion therapy, and foot detoxes help clients feel their best without sprawling out on the area rug to revel in its softness in front of the other guests.
