How talented is the staff at Britt David Hair & Nail Salon? Well, the proof is in the pictures. Exhibits A and B: this woman's chic, chin-length bob and this woman's flattering pixie cut. But talent is nothing without a little playfulness added to the mix, which is why these stylists also shave mohawks and other fun styles for kids. This is also a nail salon, and customers often stop in between haircuts for a relaxing manicure or a psychic nail reading.

Committed to maintaining an atmosphere of uninterrupted tranquility at her salon, she doles out her services by appointment only and requests that cell phones or particularly shrill kazoos not be used during sessions.
Seasons Spa & Salon's stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians maintain cosmetic prowess through both hands-on training and classroom learning, a practice which keeps them up to date on current developments in their fields.

But you don't even have to enjoy one of these treatments to get a feel for the peaceful nature of the center, since it's obvious from the moment you enter.
