Owners Debra and Craig have built up for a diverse repertoire of skills in the natural health field, which they channel into their business, Alternative Health & Wellness. Since 1993, the pair has worked in health food stores and chiropractic offices, studied naturopathic health and homeopathy, and spent time learning the nuances of practicing massage, including using essential oils, herbs, color, sound, and music during sessions. While the versatile duo helps heal plenty of clients with their own hands, the center also houses more independent therapies, such as an infrared sauna, hothouse, and pink Himalayan salt room where patrons can absorb natural minerals and season their chicken.
At the first rock 'n' roll–themed salon in Saginaw, stylists infuse the passion, edge, and authenticity of rock music into every spa and beauty service they perform. In the spacious salon, stylists and aestheticians beautify from the shoulders up by trimming locks into innovative styles, applying bold color and highlight treatments, and accenting faces with basic and airbrush makeup services. Rock Your Locks Salon offers on-location wedding beauty packages, and stylists will stay with wedding parties until the reception to apply last-minute touchups or give awkward, rambling toasts. In a dedicated massage room, clients melt into heated massage beds as therapists—who are certified in advanced medical and soothing Swedish massage—knead away aches and pains.
Soft, earthen hues, such as bright robin’s egg, cool sea foam, and rich brown, backdrop the welcoming environs of The Willows Salon & Day Spa. There, whether administering haircuts, nail services, or relaxing body treatments, the staff consults with clients before dispensing any of the multitude of beautification treatments. Bolstered by a retinue of Redken products, stylists snip, shape, and color unruly hair and frayed extension cords. During spa services, patrons enjoy custom massages, spa mani-pedis, and a variety of facials. The Willows can also be booked for private events such as bridal showers, birthday parties, and tax-day anniversary celebrations.

The team of dedicated stylists and aestheticians at L.A. Hair Design revamps tresses and enhances visages with a full range of salon and spa services.

The salon also rejuvenates skinscapes with microdermabrasion, enhances facial features with lash tinting and permanent-makeup application, and slims silhouettes with body wraps.
