Hairbenders of Joplin does as much good for people’s spirits as it does for their appearances. After the tornado that devastated parts of Joplin in 2011, the Hairbenders team joined forces with other Matrix professional haircare stylists and hosted a cut-a-thon for the victims. The event served as a pick-me-up to the community, making locals feel cared for and resilient.
On a normal day, the staff pampers clients with far more than just haircare—although those seeking TLC for their tresses have numerous cutting, coloring, and texturing services to choose from. Nail treatments incorporate high-end products such as OPI Axxium, and massage therapy and facials round out the service menu.
Part salon, part spa, and part photography studio, Gossip in the City is manned by three teams of specialists adept in their fields. As a nail technician and hairstylist, Britney Rice specializes in color, braids, dreadlocks, and wedding updos, performing each service with the same gentle care she demonstrates during spa manicures and pedicures. Her nail services include perks such as hot-towel wraps, salt scrubs, and foot massages.
Nixa Hair Studio stylists comb Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Joico products through clients’ hair both before and after they sheer off split ends and sculpt new looks. Wielding years of experience—some more than a quarter of a century—the team helps clients achieve chic and traditional looks fit for special occasions and casual everyday wearing. Their broad range of services, such as cuts, color, and conditioning, spill from ladies’ heads onto male customers’ faces in the form of beard and moustache trims.
Left to its own devices, hair will grow fussy, unmanageable, and inevitably steal your identity. That's why the skilled stylists at Hair Revue keep unwieldy locks under control with their modern cut and color services. Guests can solicit the salon for bold highlights, elegant lash extensions, and restorative mani-pedis with fierce or subtle polish.
At Michielle's Salon, Michielle Monroe Blatnik draws from two decades of professional experience to beautify scalps and bodies with expert styling, coloring services, perms, and spa mani-pedis. Blatnik keeps gents looking dapper with beard trims and clipper cuts, while ladies look stunning with formal up-dos, highlights, and flat iron treatments.
