A salon day typically doesn't compare with a spa day: Having your hair wrapped in foil and reading an outdated US Weekly under the hair-drying dome doesn't invigorate you like a massage. Which is why Alpha Studios rocks-it's a high-end (but laid-back) salon-meets-spa. A floral smell greets you when you walk in, owing to the all-natural, organic Aveda products the salon uses. Haircuts include a complimentary scalp, neck, and shoulder massage. If you're not content with that, invest in a 90-minute facial that includes a dedicated 30-minute massage that covers almost everything from head to toe.
