It’s hard to believe Good Karma Salon & Retreat is staffed by only six people when considering the number of available services: hairstyling, nailcare, skincare, massages, body treatments, and waxing are all part of the collective repertoire. Within the soothing, earth-toned studio—with nature-inspired accents such as potted bamboo and green accent walls—the staff also specializes in applying makeup and accentuating the eyes via an eyelash tint, faux lashes, or faux lashes made out of fluorescent bulbs. During treatments, the staff relies on botanical products from Aveda and hair products from Pureology.
Inside a charming Victorian house, Lindsey Garger works, digging into her toolbox of shears, clippers, and professional styling products daily to give each client a look of their own. Specializing in colors and highlights, her skills cover the gamut of hair sculpting, from wedding updos to a bangs trim.
The beauty professionals at Rain Salon upgrade the health and look of skin, hair, and nails. Stylists transform drab hairdos with a pair of shears and then enrich color or modify texture with special formulas that straighten tresses or turn them into slick, wavy lasagna noodles. Aestheticians concentrate on the skin that spans ear to ear, buffing away fine lines during microdermabrasion treatments and replenishing vitamins and moisture during facials. Tending to hands and feet, nail technicians shine up nails with chip-resistant and traditional polishes.
Stylist Ciara Guffey is part of a skilled team of 16 stylists, nail technicians, and tanning experts who beautify clients at Sunrise Tan & Salon. She delivers cutting-edge haircuts and color treatments within the salon’s bright-red walls and works at a sleek styling station with oversize mirrors, which help her create even dos while keeping an eye out for low-flying paper airplanes. The salon also houses a small boutique area, where clients can shop for professional haircare products from Matrix and Sexy Hair.
