The experienced stylists at The Salon in Ames kick off feather-extension applications and haircut services with a consultation. A set of the salon's multihued feather extensions pulled from Icarus's wings peeps out from underneath locks or stands out on top. During haircuts, mane mavens lather head noodles in suds before snipping hairs and styling them with a blowout. Guests then choose from a menu of hair-and-scalp-therapy treatments, such as a deeply penetrating conditioning treatment or a hair gloss. If any patron is unsatisfied with a service or wants more time with a stylist to trade crock-pot recipes, he or she can return to the salon within two weeks for a re-do service.
After learning the secrets of the beauty industry at PCI Academy, Bailey Magneson went on to receive her business degree. It was all part of Bailey's dream to run her own salon. Now at Bailey’s Beauty Bliss, she pulls double duty as the owner and experienced stylist, doling out haircuts, coloring services, and advice on the best shampoo for clients to use on their stuffed animals.
Believe Hair Studio's owner, Ashley Ruggeri, loves helping clients express themselves through dramatic pops of color in vibrant reds, chocolates, and blonds—and even fun hues such as pink and green. She is equally happy pinning up curls for special events or chopping off locks into stylish dos.
A cast of 20 hairstylists and beauty professionals works within the bright blue walls of Salon Zen, dedicating talent and passion to making clients beautiful and relaxed. Exposed brick and yellow trim pop out against the salon’s otherwise sea-blue decor, surrounding deft hairstylists as they snip, color, and style locks, and treat strands to helpings of Redken and Pureology products as they go. While blow dryers whirl across freshly pruned coifs, nail technicians pamper hands and feet with indulgent mani-pedis and perk up nails with colorful polish or gel enhancements. A private room beckons relaxers to indulge in a Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage, or lie in wait for an aesthetician to wax away fuzz from the face, bikini line, or mink coat. Deft makeup artists can gussy up features for a night out with expert makeup applications, or can transform pale epidermises into beach-ready physiques with airbrush tanning.
The stylists and wax technicians at Hair Sanity spruce up scalps and beautify tresses with masterful scissor snips and expert color and perm services. Led by a philosophy of personal service, each haircut, waxing service, or diatribe about powdered wigs doled out by the stylist conforms to client specifications. Keratin treatments smooth overgrown head grass by infusing individual strands with nutrient-rich protein that can keep manes tame for several months. Newly done ‘dos dress up well with decorative flower clips, which highlight faces with a touch of floral color without the hassle of planting a garden on your shoulder.
