Sharmilla Hira might be new to Heidi's Salon, but she's accumulated more than a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, training on various procedures throughout Europe and the United States. As an aesthetician, she puts this experience to use through skincare treatments including facials, microdermabrasion, and threading.

Mane Expressions scissor-wielder Michele S. unleashes a host of styling skills to rejuvenate lackluster locks. The savvy stylist can deftly trim strands to get rid of split ends or strategically hide poorly planned forehead tattoos before a partial highlight illuminates freshly shorn noggins with subtle streaks. Alternately, during a keratin smoothing treatment, a professional frizz fighter soaks cuticles in a formaldehyde-free protein serum to banish frizz and coax reclusive shine out of hiding. The 90-minute process can treat all hair types, including color-treated coifs and wigs woven from spaghetti.

Linda Nichols looks back with nostalgia on an era when friendly, old-fashioned barbershops were not a rare sight on America’s street corners. Though she has trimmed men’s hair and beards for more than three decades, it was only 10 years ago that she took matters into her own hands and opened Nichols Barbershop.

The red and blue striped barber’s pole that hangs from the shop’s modest storefront prepares guests for a throwback experience that combines contemporary fashion with an old-time sense of hospitality. Inside, the shop's skilled barbers take the time to get to know each client while leading them to a vintage barber chair and prepping their implements for a traditional haircut or straight-razor shave. After a particularly successful trim, the staff even offers to take and store a picture of your haircut, ensuring that they know exactly what to do during subsequent visits and FBI inquires. As for the atmosphere, it's cozy—like a barbershop should be—and loaded with quirky memorabilia: the walls pay homage to Linda's favorite television show, The Andy Griffith Show, with stacked displays of prints and pictures.

Treatments can be targeted at common trouble spots such as the waist, hips, thighs, arms, or midsection.
