Since 1963 Village Barber Shop has been located in The Village Center on 10th Street in Cookeville, TN. Through the years many people have sat in those chairs and cried because their parents were making them get a haircut... and that tradition still continues today. The Swallows family has opperated the shop since 1975.
Salon Solutions' crew of amiable stylists coaxes forth patrons' innermost follicular fantasies to conjure up coifs customized around each noggin’s unique topography. Tress tamers soothe unruly manes for 45–60 minutes, maneuvering shears through head thickets to lop off excess foliage more cumbersome than a top hat made of stacked barbells. Deep-conditioning waves wash across strands from root to tip, sending nourishing currents surging through hair. Gawk at fringe artisans' deft digits during a postcut style session as they masterfully weave tendrils into chic new styles or functional baskets.
Anita Sullivan—the name behind Anita and Co.—offers head-to-toe services with her staff of professionals, including an aesthetician, nail technician, master hair designer, color specialist, and massage therapist. Men, women, and children sit for haircuts, updos, highlights, and hair extensions. Other pampering services include custom facials that work to clear acne and other pore blockages, including oil and leftover New Year’s confetti.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
Mother-daughter team Heather Hull and Julie Miller-Wilson stay in sync. They went to massage school together and graduated together. As a licensed massage therapist, Julie unfurls tension for her clients at Body Kneads, Etc. while Heather aids by providing various massage treatments. Operating on the same wavelength, they combine their skills in an extensive menu of services that includes 10 types of massages and facials for acne, wrinkles, and dryness.
Heather and Julie’s historic home practically forbids anxious vibes. A cozy fireplace warms hardwood floors and surrounding Victorian decor. In the treatment rooms, powder-blue walls and a soft, padded bed set the stage for massages and skin treatments, which ease clients into states of serenity known only to Julio Iglesias’s microphone. Outside of each mini-sanctuary, qualified professionals perform skin and nail services.
