The sounds of laughter and lively chatter echo across Tony & Friends Salon and Spa’s expansive studio as stylists revivify scalps and aestheticians refresh skin with professional PCA products. If the stylists need any inspiration for their designs, they need only glance up at the geometric patterns that stretch across the walls or down at the smooth, sleek lines that run across the hardwood floors. The salon hosts girls' night out parties on Friday nights, inviting up to 10 ladies to enjoy complimentary appetizers as the staff applies cosmetics, massages sore muscles, and supplies cotton makeup pads for the gentlest of pillow fights.
Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers. Highly trained hair tamers tame wild wigs and also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering clients' questions about hair trends and maintenance. The stylish snipping ($13) gets started after a warm shampoo and rinse ($5) cleans scalps and washes away the melodies of musical comedies stuck in hair. Walk-ins are welcome.
Since 1999, licensed massage therapist Shannon Lebal has fine-tuned her loving touch in a home health agency, a chiropractic office, and as a proud mother of two. Now all can benefit from Shannon's practiced bodywork technique at her own Fireside Therapeutic Massage studio. She slackens achy sinews beneath her flowing Swedish strokes, firm deep-tissue pressure, and relaxing hot-stone therapy. She also renders sport massages to improve flexibility in stiff limbs and giant foam fingers.
