Beauty specialists prettify patrons with hair and nail services within the sage-green walls of Take One Hair Studio. To smooth unruly tresses, savvy stylists slather hair in up to 4 ounces of Keratin Complex solution, whose powerful proteins wrestle unmanageable strands into submission in around 2.5 hours. The treatment leaves locks as smooth and silky as a Swiss-chocolate bust of Frank Sinatra for three to five months, and clients also take home travel-size bottles of keratin shampoo and conditioner to help maintain their new look. Alternatively, nail techs can cover finger shields in a coat of glittering gel polish that can last up to 21 days without chipping, fading, or eloping with a comely set of acrylics. Then, they’ll brush basic polish onto toenails, completing both treatments in about 90 minutes.
At Bikini Body Factory, licensed aestheticians and spa technicians revitalize clients with both technical spa services and holistic skin treatments. They knead backs using Swedish or recovery-specific massages—often enhanced by scented essential oils—and exfoliate skin with sea salts that leave clients smooth enough to gain acceptance from any snobby dolphin pod. Team members also apply wax and cold cucumber packs to oust unwanted bristle from a wide array of treatment areas. And when they're not catering to clients' aesthetic needs, the therapists assist clients in setting realistic goals with ongoing personal fitness training.

Before she and her husband journeyed to Missouri six years ago, she owned an Irvine, California salon for 20 years. Now, Margaret shares her styling expertise as a team member at Nixa Hair Studio. Along with a mastery of color and foiling techniques, she?s also bilingual, which makes it much easier when hair refuses to speak the same language as its client.
