Every service at Geri's Beauty Salon begins with a free consultation and perhaps a complimentary cup of coffee or tea. In its more than three decades of existence, the whimsical salon has greeted visitors with attentive service, a knowledge of diverse haircare techniques, and?probably more recently?a few resident fish and frogs. A quartet of certified stylists transform men, women, and children with custom cuts and styling, and they can remake 'dos by infusing hair with vibrant color or sun-kissed highlights. Working from the opposite angle, the staff also provides therapeutic and cosmetic solutions for thinning hair.
From her private treatment room in Sunrise Sun Spa, trained NovaLash eyelash extensionist and aesthetician Mandie boosts and reduces all manner of bodily fringe. Mandie enhances lashes with lash perms, coupled with a darkening tint, resulting in buoyant, curly lashes that retain a dramatic look. The specialist's waxing services use veteran techniques to help minimize pain as warm wax eradicates every unwanted bristle from both male and female physiques.
After working for two decades in pharmaceutical sales, lifelong animal lover Maggie Joyner knew it was time to follow a vocation closer to her heart. After trading in her medication samples for a pair of clippers, she founded Hair of the Dog Wash and Groom Salon. She immediately set to work making her grooming room as stress-free as possible for her canine customers.
As one means of accomplishing this goal, she installed hydraulic-lift fiberglass tubs and tables designed to accommodate large or aging animals without having to restrain them by the neck. A Clipper Vac professional grooming system was the next addition, allowing Maggie’s combs and clippers to comfortably remove matted fur and bones buried beneath dense overcoats. Today, when she isn’t busy combing through fur or clipping nails, Maggie continues to demonstrate her love for animals by finding new, permanent homes for foster dogs.
