Owners Cathie Politis Fennell, Phil Fennell, and Olga Politis foster a collaborative approach at Salon Greco The European Day Spa. Every team member possesses a specialty within their field—for example, a massage therapist specializing in neuromuscular therapy, and a stylist who focuses on coloring—which means an expert is always available to consult with clients.
The salon's decor incorporates a granite reception desk, wall art as circular as a child's logic for why she should get a soda, and elegant chairs and rugs that match the ornate earth-tone floor. Stylists welcome guests into this environment before beginning each appointment by considering their subject's face shape and hair texture. They can also help clients combat thinning hair with restoration treatments. At the spa, aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists wait on guests with relaxing treatments for the whole body, including nonsurgical face-lifts with the Neurotris facial-rejuvenation system.

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback I ever received from a client is when a client told me "I have been getting sew-in weaves for over 12 years and this by far is the best one I have ever had," and the client almost cried.
When it comes to elongating ‘dos with extensions, the styling team at Michel's Salon & Day Spa know that there are no substitutes for real hair. That’s why they use Great Lengths extensions, all of which are made entirely from human hair, and result in cascading tresses. But extensions only skim the surface of the salon’s hair care, which range from brightening strands with single-process color to smoothing locks with formaldehyde-free keratin treatments.
And hair care, in turn, only skims the surface of services Michel Njem and his team of expert aestheticians have offered since 1998. Heated basalt stones help soothe achy muscles during massages, while marine botanical masques enrich skin during seaweed facials, a more accessible option than finding a mermaid to nuzzle. Michel’s even piles pampering upon pampering by concluding relaxing pedicures with a dip in the private pedicure room’s Jacuzzi foot bath.
The team of stylists and cosmetologists at Sara Hair & Spa are devoted to helping their clients achieve silky-smooth hair and even smoother skin. While custom cuts and coloring services transform hair, threading and waxing treatments remove it from unwanted areas, such as the face or soles of the feet. Staff also perform soothing facials, and ready bridal parties for the big day with airbrush makeup or henna applications. To care for hair, the team relies on high-end products by Redken, Matrix, and Loreal—and to add color to faces, they use MAC Cosmetics. The salon's decor soothes visitors with a rich color palette of creams and reds.
Hair by Devyn is, understandably, all about hair care. Italian-inspired styles are the house specialty, with stylish precision cuts and rich hair color services for both women and men.
Chic new cuts change up tired styles and partial highlights can be streaked through hair for a sun-kissed look. An Italian glaze treatment imparts extra-shiny locks, as do keratin smoothing treatments. With all those options, it seems there's really not much the stylists here can't do, tackling everything from the simplest deep-conditioning treatments to
color correction and formal up-dos.
Not surprisingly, the team at The Hair Extension Studio focuses on hair and eyelash extensions. But the follicle amplifiers don’t stop at basic extension and haircare treatments, and have expanded their menu to include such specialized services as careful sew-ins, meticulous strand-by-strand weaves, and a wealth nonsurgical hair replacements. The team can even work shears on location for wedding prep, but does charge a tiny fee for grooming the tiny people on the cake.
