Owners Tracy Kuss and Christy Strand-Kolb share a passion for hairstyling, and they channeled that excitement into opening VanStrand Hair Salon in 2001. Their mission was to create a salon that provided high-quality haircuts, perms, and waxing treatments at reasonable prices. Creating a friendly place to visit and socialize was equally important to them, and today the two love how their salon gives them an opportunity to meet new people and establish relationships with return clients. To keep the vibe upbeat and fun, Tracy and Christy surround themselves with a team of equally passionate, talented, and amicable hair sculptors. Pairing their skills with top-shelf products such as American Crew and Phyto Organics, the stylists stick to their high standards and leave their customers with ‘dos as stylish and sleek as a Ferrari dressed in Versace.

At all of Q Nails And Tanning's stations, the cosmetologists and manicurists display their licenses, and they're happy to talk about them with customers. That's because, in addition to being highly trained in their fields, the staff members take pride in their ability to foster easygoing conversation and cultivate a social, laid-back environment where clients feel comfortable and welcome. As clients and technicians engage in comfortable back-and-forth, fingers and toes find their own things to brag about, including new sets of acrylic, gel, or pink-and-white nails that enable them to steal the thunder back from player pianos. Once fingers and toes are looking polished, clients can better the rest of the body with lie-down or standup tanning sessions, as well as facials, waxing services, and eyelash extensions.

Connect with Massage?s therapists?are always concerned with their clients' comfort. That's why they speak to them about their health concerns, ranging from sciatica to headaches to diabetes, before customizing a massage to help them find relief from the symptoms. Other specialty techniques focus on the discomforts of pregnancy or athletes' overworked muscles. The therapists also carefully drape areas of the body to keep them unexposed and encourage clients to voice their preference on which areas are OK to touch and if they're comfortable. During sessions, soothing music plays; alternatively, clients can bring their own soundtrack, such as a robotic voice repeating the word "relax" every two seconds.
