Dawn Wardell lends her artistic eye and deft hands to most services performed at Salon Sanctuary. Like many stylists, she cuts and colors hair, but she also keeps a few extra tricks up her sleeve. She can spinning tight braids and sewing long-lasting extensions into existing hair, a service that's usually paired with a hot oil hair massage. With various products and chemicals, she teases hair into striking designs, or smooths it out so that it falls in silky curtains, creating a unique and flattering look for each client.
The ever-training stylists at Artistik Edge reveal their passion for the industry by providing the Lake Highlands community with artfully executed hair services.

Led by owner Kimberly Thompson, an entrepreneur, mother, writer, and former model, the clinical staff at Shangri-la Medispa helps busy clients to look and feel their best.

The medispa has also developed its own product line, Shangri-La Skin By Kim. The team also includes a registered nurse who can advise patients on their treatment options or answer any questions, from “how much downtime is required?” to “is the human appendix an extraterrestrial tracking device?”
The crew performs services in whimsically themed treatment rooms filled with shabby-chic tables and dressers. Clients can relax in spaces decorated with such touches as a colorful London sign and lamps that resemble the Eiffel Tower and an antique streetlamp.

Hair In Your Face's owner and head stylist Cassie Hall perfected her trade at Paul Mitchell schools, cultivating a contemporary approach to men's grooming and hairstyling. Hall creates cinema-worthy hairdos based on personal consultations with the client. Her extensive training in coloring and haircare help her deftly cover up gray hairs the way a director covers up a movie star's lack of athleticism with a stunt double. To disguise those gray strands, she uses top-shelf Paul Mitchell products. Hall also has the skills to perform specialized facial-hair trimming to render a bearded face dapper and prevent mustaches from getting caught in jacket zippers. Full-package grooming services turn routine trips to the barber into soothing decompression sessions, with scalp massages, conditioning, and paraffin hand dips.
While her guests are kicking back in the barber's chair or the waiting area, Cassie makes them feel at home. She offers both beverages and views of concerts on a flat-screen TV.
