At Legacy Hair Center, Ronnie Talent, who has performed more than 12,000 hair-replacement and hair-restoration consultations, leads his team in tending to clients' coifs. From natural, nonsurgical hair replacement for both men and women to laser hair therapy, Legacy’s service can help bolster head coverage. The team also affixes strands with hair extensions, which come in handy for towers with out-of-service elevators.
Most of the time when kids go to get their hair cut, they're lucky if they're able to watch a movie they've seen a thousand times or play with the single toy the salon keeps on hand. But even that doesn't generally happen. And because most salons don't bother to entertain kids, haircuts can be a difficult thing for them to sit through.
Yet, when kids go to Snip-its Kids Hair Salon and Spa, they get an adventure. Staffers first hand kids a Snip-its Adventure Club card, and then invite them to sing along with the salon's own cast of animated characters. There's Curly Comb, the adventurous Flyer Joe Dryer, and the group's leader, Snips, an anthropomorphized pair of scissors with a shock of brown hair. This same crew stars in computer games and activities that kids can play at each salon station, which dazzle eyes with more bright colors than a car covered in Lisa Frank stickers.
While their clients explore imaginative worlds, stylists use a proprietary line of natural and allergen-free products to create buzz cuts and bobs. At the end of the process, kids visit the Magic Box. The enchanted device awards kids a prize in exchange for a swatch of hair. On special occasions, stylists can also photograph a baby's first haircut or transport girls to Tinseltown during a Hollywood Party.
In order to make every salon experience exciting for kids and relaxing for adults, Snip-its Kids Hair Salon and Spa's partners with Autism Speaks and trains stylists to work with kids with autism.
Licensed aesthetician and makeup artist Rhonda Green offers custom medical-grade-skincare and sunless-tanning treatments at Just Glo Studio. Along with therapeutic facials, Green specializes in chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and waxing. For sunless tanning, technicians wield equipment from Infinity Sun to bronze their clients, mixing the sprays with optional anti-aging treatments.
Anne Pipkin was once a loyal customer of gorgeousGLO. But she loved the spray-tanning salon so much that she couldn't resist becoming the owner. In that capacity, Pipkin joins with her fellow staff members to share their studio's natural spray-tanning formula with their clients. They help tanners achieve bronzed hues without the incurring harmful effects of UV rays or painstakingly coloring themselves in gold crayon. Alternatively, an on-site blowout center tops off tan looks with sleekly styled coifs. Blowouts, updos, and conditioning treatments prepare locks for special events including prom, weddings, and engagement parties.
Armed with more than a decade's worth of skincare experience, Helena Collins helps clients achieve and protect healthy skin with medical-grade chemical peels, restorative and corrective treatments, and maintenance therapy.

Inspired by her late mother's battle with skin cancer, Helena enrolled in a postgraduate program for an oncology aesthetics certification, allowing her to effectively treat clients battling or recovering from cancer. Helena also travels around the country as a motivational speaker for the Regency Beauty Institute, giving talks focused on helping students transition from apprentice to professional aesthetician.
