Master stylist Kelly Wilson has owned Pure Faith Salon for more than 14 years. There, she harnesses her Paul Mitchell training both to craft eye-catching looks and lead her skilled team, which consists of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Their roster of services ranges from highlights and precision cuts to facials and waxing, but they only do waxing for cars if your head is a car. For pageants, weddings, and special events, an on-staff makeup artist can paint on dramatic eyeliner or natural-looking zebra stripes.
Although she holds 25 years of industry experience, Barbara Gray remains up to date on the latest nail trends. In addition to her standard nail services, Barbara can extend the life of mani-pedis with optional add-ons, such as coating nails with CND Shellac—a UV-cured formula that remains chip-free for up to two weeks. And in addition to pampering feet with pedicures, Barbara sells custom-fitted toe rings in sizes 1–18.
4 Seasons Salon's advanced equipment has bronzed bodies with UV and UV-free tanning services and the tanning salon is Smart Tan-certified. Formerly known as Unique Tan, the salon fosters sun-kissed glows with an array of beds, including the lay-down Open Sun and the standup Starship, as well as the sunless Mystic Tan booth and custom airbrush tanning, applied by Michelle Owen who has over 9 years of experience. The company's knowledgeable staff kicks off tanning journeys by chatting with clients about their preferred hues. Red-light therapy and massage therapy sessions soothe bodies, and Fit body wrap treatments are available to reduce cellulite, speed up metabolism, and detoxify the body. The stores also stock lotions, such as Designer Skin and Devoted Creations' Collagenetics line, which boasts anti-aging effects.
At Cielo Salon and Day Spa, classically inspired artwork and marble walls set the scene for services designed to impart timeless beauty. Yet the styles exiting the salon are anything but old-fashioned. Armed with J Beverly Hills haircare products, stylists––some of whom have more than 20 years of experience––employ the latest cutting, straightening, and lengthening techniques to shape manes and mix hair colors that hold true even when subjected to the sun's polygraph test. Luxurious drapes separate the main salon area from the pedicure station, where toes can change out of old polish in complete privacy, as well as a warren of private treatment rooms where aestheticians strip away unwanted body hair and lift away complexion-clogging debris with facials peels rich in vitamin C and lactic and glycolic acids.
For the staff at Nu Creationz, hair is somewhat of an artistic medium. They can press, sculpt, tease, curl, and extend tresses with natural-looking braids, locs, and weaves. The laid-back barbershop specializes in men's dos, and can shave designs that include stars, lines, and The Constitution. Nu Creationz even offers services for children and sheepdogs searching for a fresh new look.
