Hair By Chaye's Chaye always had a passion for doing hair, and it shows. Inside her salon, she takes the extra time to ensure each client's visit is as relaxing as possible, treating ladies and gents to indulgent scalp massages and soothing steamed towels with each and every haircut. But while expert cuts, highlights, perms, and relaxers are her shop's specialty, the pampering services don't stop there. To make over clients from head to toe, Hair By Chaye also offers spa pedicures with foot scrubs, hot towels, and relaxing foot and leg massages, and waxing services for the face and body.
The Great Clips empire spans more than 3,000 salons across North America, where a collective of over 30,000 stylists wait, ready to tend to hairstyles. At these salons, no appointments are necessary—though an online check-in system aids those who wish to skip any potential lines by adding their names directly to the haircut queue. And to aid their new hairstyles, customers can peruse a line of gels, conditioners, pomades, and tea-tree oil shampoos and body washes.
Nary an unwanted hair stays intact under the scrutiny of Emily Reeder. She waxes off on faces, in the bikini area, and on legs and tails. Her service is one of many aimed at pampering clients inside Essential Wellness Day Spa. Guests can also relax during a facial, aromatherapy wrap, or massage.
