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.

Carolyn Schmitz at Destination Massage & Spa practices massage therapy to complement the staff’s aesthetic services. She can soothe sore flexors and impart a sense of calm during sessions that take as long as a leisurely crabwalk from one end of Rhode Island to the other—60 or 90 minutes. If her clients want services to complement a relaxing massage, Carolyn can direct them to hairstylists, nail technicians, and makeup artists.
Beauty Boutique's clinical aestheticians, armed with products from brands such as ZO Skin Health and SkinCeuticals, unearth naturally radiant rinds with a host of skin services for men and women. An initial analysis zeroes in on epidermal afflictions to rejuvenate visages with a tailored treatment plan and mask. Soothing finger flourishes rain down on necks and shoulders during the 60-minute Beauty Boutique signature facial, which slakes thirsty pores and adjacent cacti while a hydrating treatment washes away deep-rooted pollutants. During the gentlemen's facial, pampering pros treat mugs to mister-specific products designed to ward off ingrown hairs and razor burn. Masculine countenances steep in a luxurious steam before a gentle exfoliation expunges impurities and a shoulder and neck massage relaxes muscles tense from supporting the weight of lead ball caps.
