Though the name of her business, Got Lady Stache?, implies an attitude of irreverence, aesthetician Jennifer Horton takes her clients very seriously. In her nook at Sugar and Shears, she removes unwanted hair with sugaring, a process less painful than waxing and more sanitary than using leftover duct tape. As they recline on a black-leather treatment chair, clients can also opt for facial treatments to rejuvenate skin.

With locations spanning Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Norman, Sandy Beaches Tanning helps keep Sooner State bodies looking summer-ready all year round. Beds by brands such as Ovation, Solaris, and Acclaim HP comprise four tiers of conventional bulb tanning, or Mystic Tan airbrush booths rely upon the body's own magnetic properties to attract the customized formula in a way that helps it adhere evenly to every curve, crease, and prime meridian. To help clients keep up their sun-drenched demeanor between visits, Sandy Beaches also stocks each location's shelves with a large selection of tanning lotions, which customers can learn more about thanks to a biweekly lotion review posted on the business's facebook page.
Rumor has it that spray-tan tech Jennifer Freer can hit a pale leg from 100 paces. Beyond just accuracy, she's a stickler for customization. Her natural tanning solution is tailored to the client's unique skin tone and won't leave any odor or tacky orange tint. Jennifer offers spray-tan parties for groups of five or more and can provide a customized glow for special occasions such as proms or weddings.
From her private station in The Guild Salon, aesthetician Tobi Hight refines faces with trained hands and professional products. From issues ranging from the acne of youth to wrinkles caused by an aging tooth fairy switching faces with you while you sleep, the skin expert can devise a solution to leave any complexion clear and radiant.
The follicular aficionados at Mane Results Salon tame tresses with professional-grade products designed to ease frizz and impart smoothness. After an initial consultation, a clarifying treatment raises the natural pH of supple strands, flushing out impurities and intransigent Cold War spies. A certified specialist then applies the keratin treatment, which penetrates locks to the cuticle layer and uses natural proteins to restore unruly, dry, or damaged manes. Blow-dryers help the treatment attach more securely to strands, and a titanium-plate flat-iron seals in the treatment at temperatures of up to a science-fiction-friendly 450 degrees. Both treatments take roughly 2–3 hours, but whereas the express blowout outfits heads with lustrous locks for up to eight weeks, the full keratin smoothing treatment can last for 3–5 months of shampoo-commercial readiness.
