The stylists at Vanity Beauty Hair Salon do much more than just snip men's, women's, and kids' locks. They infuse moisture into dry hair with hydrating repair treatments and intense masks, and add bounce to straight 'dos with curl-inducing perms. Highlights add sun-kissed streaks and camouflage color masks grays or helps patrons blend into nine varieties of prairie grass. Simple blowouts create a polished look for special events and nights out, whereas formal styles prep clients for a walk down the aisle or red carpet.

If there's one thing owner and stylist Melissa Addison can't stand, it's a poorly installed weave.

Once new looks have been achieved to their guests' satisfaction, Melissa and the team help them maintain their new look by doling out ample haircare education.
