Venus Ugolini opened the doors of Twisted Hair Salon in July 2011, offering hair, skin, and nail services to men and women alike. A graduate of Paul Mitchell cosmetology school, she combines her professional experience with that of a team of skilled stylists, colorists, and makeup artists. That team joins forces to offer a comprehensive list of services, including updos, eyelash extensions, and facials. Committed to taking a personal interest in their clients’ style even outside the salon’s walls, staffers can also provide helpful tips for maintaining results at home.
Plush pedicure thrones line one wall of Angel's Beauty Salon, and a line of manicure tables and haircutting chairs face them. The stylists and nail technicians work to pamper guests with precise, face-flattering haircuts for men and women, and mani-pedis, including long-lasting gel manicures, that transform nails into works of art. In addition, the salon offers waxing services.
The expert nail technicians at Sculpt Plus soothe scraggy digits and cuticle-ridden toes with tranquil manicures and pedicures. During the spa mani-pedi, a steady-handed manicurist trims and shapes jagged nails, eradicates overgrown cuticles, and expertly applies a skin tone-complementing polish to fingernails and toehammers. The decadent treatment includes a sea-salt scrub to slough off dead dermis and rainbow residue from feet and ends with a hydrating foot mask. Unwind in Sculpt Plus's positive, peaceful atmosphere, an oasis devoid of daily stressors and protesters of pampering.
Armed with high-quality polishes and a passion for keratin restoration, owner Kevin Lane and his team of nail masters prepare glove and stocking stuffers to emerge for springtime.

Hairbenders of Joplin does as much good for people’s spirits as it does for their appearances.

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.
