Students at Debutantes School of Cosmetology and Nail Technology hone essential skills in styling, refining, and pampering in 17,000 square feet of salon-focused space. Advanced apprentices lavish real-world clients with beauty services at a lower rate than that found at standard salons, helping them to sharpen their skills as their subjects bask in artful hair styling, skin treatments, and nail services.
The salon is vivid in shades of marine blue and mauve, and the lobby bubbles fresh water over a brilliantly tiled fountain, where clients and students alike gaze at their reflections or beseech the water for hints about whether to choose a standard or french-tipped manicure.
Ranked among America's 200 fastest-growing salons in the January 2009 issue of Salon Today, My Salon smoothes and styles patrons' head quarters with an array of services. In the Brazilian keratin smoothing treatments, the salon's experienced stylists coat cranial carpeting in the plant-derived protection of Brazilian Blowout Zero. Free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals, the product John Hancocks each strand with a signature blend of essential amino acids, liberating tresses from the tyrannical grip of frizz. Following the three-hour treatment, patrons can flaunt their shiny locks at the office, at friends' houses, and aboard charmingly haunted tall ships for up to 12 weeks.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
Over the past 30 years, hairstyles have evolved from punky ’80s puff-dos, to spunky ’90s pixie cuts, and finally millennial styles. Katrina Hish has weathered every fad with a firm grip on her scissors and a desire to please her clients. In 1981, the owner of Katrina's Hair & Nails began amassing hair, nail, and makeup talent, and ended up teaching cosmetology and doling out inspirational advice from beauty school lecterns. Now she combines her experience with modern sensibilities, overseeing her staff as they expertly cut, style, and color hairdos and lavish clients with manicures and pedicures.
The staffers at Le Belle Donne Salon and Day Spa fine-tune all their hair, nail, and skincare services with nourishing ingredients to help clients attain all their beauty goals.

The day spa can also tend to gentlemanly needs with men’s services, including massages and waxing, haircuts with a hot-towel treatment, or sports-massage pedicures that paint nails in their favorite team's colors.
