Clients walking into La Bella Delle Rose Salon might sense a warm, personal aesthetic shaping the styling studio, even if they don't know that the dark-wood reception desk was hand-built by the owner's father. Sherbet-colored walls backdrop ice-cream-themed decorations, a popcorn machine commingles with the coffeemaker in the waiting area, and a manicure station recalls a fortune-teller's table with its scarlet damask draping. While basking in Pureology hair treatments or being prepped for weddings and other landmark occasions, guests sit beneath studio lighting, which helps them tell stylists apart from IRS agents.

Candles flicker inside the marble fireplace, sending droplets of light into the 1920s colonial revival–style home that houses Quintana’s Barber & Dream Spa. Hardwood floors and tan leather seating compose a warm color palette, and WiFi—installed by the ghost of the original architect—keeps busy guests connected. After appointment reminders land in their email inboxes, clients step into the earth-toned sanctuary for services ranging from basic mani-pedis and beard trims to all-day spa excursions. Guests choose services from a menu of massages, facials, waxing, and haircare, which can be combined into packages for individuals and couples.
Quintana's soothing sanctuary doesn't just speak for itself. Patrons banded together to vote the salon into CityVoter's top five for Best Massage, Barber, and Mani-Pedi in 2013. The spa's acclaim page also spotlights press recognition of Friendliest Staff, Best-Looking Storefront, and Most Helpful Combs.
Taking their name from the 18% chromium and 8% nickel that transform regular steel into stainless steel, the staff of 18|8 Fine Men's Salons master grooming services to transform their clients into chiseled gentlemen. A greeter waits at the salon entrance with a complimentary beverage for each client and guides him to his stylist's booth or to a private or semiprivate treatment area for facials, massage, and other grooming sessions. Stylists carefully cut and color the hair of their clients, finishing Executive cuts and styles with five-minute shoulder massages and Bay Rum hot towels.
Technicians groom hands with MANicures and faces with straight-edge blade shaves and hot lather eos moisturizing shave cream. Guests can relax during 20-minute therapeutic massages to finish their visit and ease any tension built up in hands and forearms by excessive whittling.
