With a collective of stylists from all walks of life, the team at Salon Mystique can shape hair into any chic look their clients desire. Drawing on years of hair care experience, they perform everything from simple cuts and styles to intricate updos for special occasions. Beyond scissor work, they also brighten locks with color and highlights, smooth out unruly hair with Japanese straightening, and add natural-looking extensions.
While the stylists stick to strands, the rest of Salon Mystique's team focuses on pampering the rest of the body. Massage therapists relax muscles with masterful kneading and nail techs buff fingers and toes before applying chip-resistant Shellac polish or talons to better scratch one's back with.
Nicole Lee hails from a long line of stylists. Her closest role model, her father, Rodney Zeno, spent 45 years clipping tresses in his cozy single-chair studio before she took his place. Today, Nicole draws on more than 20 years of her own experience as she snips and arranges strands for men, women, and children. While she works, guests sit in a brown barber's chair surrounded by black-and-white checkered floors and walls dotted with golf memorabilia, all vestiges of Zeno's worthy reign. In addition to cuts, highlights, and perms, Nicole also offers waxing services and keeps a nail tech on staff to ensure that her clients' hands don’t get jealous and muss their new 'dos.
Kellie, the tanning artist behind Glo To Go Customized Sunless Tanning, burnishes skin tones with high-quality airbrush tans customized to each individual's skin. Particles of DHA deepen the skin's hue to a golden brown without streaking or leaving behind orange splotches that falsely indicate a Cheetos addiction. Kellie recommends gently exfoliating skin before appointments and avoiding moisturizers, perfumes, and oils on the day of the session.
Under the gleam of chandeliers, Lorie J. Burick transforms tresses into classic and modern styles accented with blunt bangs and sweeping layers.

Sheer curtains cascade down the windows and vintage pictures tucked inside gilded frames, evoking a homey atmosphere inside Salon Milano Nails. Faux marbled tables serve as manicure stations, where technicians cover nails with Shellac and Gelish polishes that protect against chips and scratches. Alternatively, acrylic nails cover unsightly or extra-shy digits.
Dog Daze Gourmet Hot Dogs' founders started out small. During a road trip that happened to pass through West Virginia, they stopped for gas and picked up a few chili dogs. They were "perhaps the best chili dog[s] ever," and the unexpected culinary experience inspired them to start researching their own gourmet hot dog restaurant. They wanted their dogs to be the best around, so they started touring the country, sampling chili dogs wherever they went. They also discovered any number of other delicious hot dog preparation methods, many of which appear on the Dog Daze menu. Today, they serve 21 different styles of hot dogs, plus sandwiches and entrees such as pierogies.
