Salon de Futur’s stylists, massage therapist, and aesthetician work together to keep clients feeling relaxed and looking their best. They dress up strands with golden highlights and transform short manes with hair extensions, which leave locks long enough to tie the Empire State Building to the Space Needle or just to go from the neck to past the shoulders. Their exfoliating facials shed dead skin cells, and their relaxing massages unwind knotted muscles. The salon also impacts the community by offering free haircuts to clients that opt to donate their chopped-off strands to Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that creates wigs for underprivileged children in need.
Sisters Kendra and Kara co-own the salon, along with Karen, who has 20 years of experience as an aesthetician. Kendra dedicates her skill both to her business and to area beauty schools, further demonstrating the company’s commitment to its community.
Kelly Muzall, registered nurse and founder of Estudio de Piel, surrounds herself with beauty professionals who continually pursue ongoing education. Their credentials, like every DeLorean ever made, reach into the past and future—licensed massage therapist Kevin Barry has more than a quarter century of experience in the field, but has broadened his skill set to include deep-water massage and spiritual medicine. Physician assistant Katie O’Brien held director-level positions at clinics across the heartland before planting roots at Estudio de Piel. She also founded a consulting business that trains physicians and nurses to administer injectables. Though Barry and O’Brien represent only two of several professionals, they embody the level of expertise at Estudio de Piel. Each time someone clinches a new certification, the spa adds another service. Since opening, the spa has added microdermabrasions, chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and laser treatments to its menu.
The six owners of North Scott Barber Salon know each other quite well, since they all met and trained at the same salon before opening their own styling spot. Between them, they share 90 years of industry experience, which they deftly wield while performing services for both men and women such as haircuts, highlights, conditioning treatments, and mani-pedis. Inside, purple, green, and beige walls surround tidy stations equipped with square full-length mirrors, and outside, an iconic candy-striped pole hangs out front, signaling the hair services within.
There's a reason a tiny tree sprouts from the n in the Greentoes' emblem. The luxury nail spa bolsters environmental sustainability by using eco-friendly products such as the Éminence Organic Skin Care line. In the comfort of a cozy chair, clients can solicit a skilled aesthetician for a swift mani-pedi and revitalizing facial, or nix unflattering fuzz with a hair-waxing session.
After working at a handful of large spas, Melanie Tyrrell decided to strike out on her own. Taking what she had learned, the certified aesthetician and massage therapist assembled a menu of massage and waxing services and flung open the doors to her new spa space, Silver Linings Studio. Here, she welcomes visitors to unwind during hot-stone, deep-tissue, and Swedish massages, tailoring each treatment to address the individual's aches whether they are caused by stress or devastating limbo contest losses. Meanwhile, her waxing services oust unwanted hair from across physiques, from brows to bikini lines.
Yolanda can calm the wildest of hair using a smoothing treatment that infuses strands with keratin, a type of protein that lends natural hair its structure. Yolanda works alongside a team of beauty professionals who cut and color hair, wax away unwanted fuzz, and wrap clients in spearmint or seaweed. They also provide a variety of nail services, including mani-pedis, gel-polish applications, and acrylics.
