Salon Concepts connects talented stylists with private suites where they can tend to tresses and soothe skin in a peaceful environment. Services and pricing vary by location, with an array of beautifying treatments abounding across the network like bunnies on a verdant spring catwalk. Seventeen participating aestheticians are armed with a pack of prettification options such as cut-and-color combos from experienced colorist Brent Bauer at Salon Concepts Oakley ($60–$175) or body waxing ($10+) under the gentle hands of Randy Jackson at Salon Concepts Florence. Check in for a noninvasive frown-removal procedure with a facial expert ($35+) or a stress-melting massage ($35+) from Erlinda Griffin at Salon Concepts Montgomery.
The bronzing artists at Glow Sunfree Tanning and Waxing shade bodies to coppery hues with spray tans in just 15 minutes. Customizing their eco-certified tanning solution, which incorporates jojoba oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins to nourish skin, lets the professionals ensure clients acquire streak-free, natural-looking tans that can't be achieved with an orange crayon. In addition to darkening limbs, the salon staff waxes away unwanted fuzz for smooth, beach-ready skin.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to hairstyles. That’s why the pros at Nature’s Outer Beauty customize haircuts to fit each client’s face shape, maintenance routine, and favorite decade. Their specialties include coloring services and hair-sheen treatments, and they happily twist manes into updos for special events.
