Dawn Curry has worked in the beauty industry for seven years, with experience ranging from applying cosmetics for television appearances to teaching styling techniques to other professionals. Now, patrons of Southern Roots Salon get the full benefit of her experience. She transforms hues with Pravana coloring products, snips tresses into flattering styles, and infuses strands with highlights and lowlights to create dimension. Turquoise furniture and salvaged doors with distressed paint create a chic Bohemian vibe inside the salon.
Hairstylist Kristie Bevis works alongside nail techs, aestheticians, and other stylists at Gypsy Parlour, a beauty parlor approaching its third decade in business. The salon's black-and-white floral wallpaper provides a sophisticated backdrop for minimalistic shelves, which brim with products by Moroccanoil and Kérastase. Kristie has trained at The Salon Professional Academy and received instruction in Brazilian Blowouts to complement her skill with hair color, hair-conditioning treatments, and custom airbrush tanning. When she isn't highlighting tresses or styling manes to look like celebrities in magazines or mug shots, Kristie is straightening locks with protein-rich keratin by Coppola.
A team of hairstylists, skin experts, and one talented nail technician works its aesthetic magic between Simplicity Salon & Spa?s deep-red walls and sleek-tiled floor. Always up-to-date on the latest styles, techniques, and booster shots, the salon?s stylists snip and color strands and add floor-sweeping length with extensions. The resident nail tech works nearby, treating tired dogs to an indulgent foot facial and decorating digits with nail art. Meanwhile, inside a private spa room, aestheticians and massage therapists erase stress with three types of facials, full-body salt scrubs, and Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
Water swirls around a washbasin at Luxe Salon & Spa, draining away Bumble and bumble products from hair as clients rest on comfy reclining seats. Exposed brick walls and hardwood floors surround them, lending the space a loft-like aesthetic, and hanging steel lights illuminate a row of swiveling chairs where stylists set to work. Here, the beauty experts pamper guests with salon services such as color treatments, hair extensions, and blowouts. The salon also offers mani-pedis, waxing treatments, and eyelash extensions that make eyes pop more than rimming them with highlighter.
Aesthetician Mindy Liles brings her masques, steam treatments, and cleansing procedures to Salon Envy. There, she tends to skin using techniques that include advanced skin analyses and skin mapping to locate and combat problems such as acne or a second nose. Mindy offers facials that target many different skin issues, such as an ultra calming facial, which combats skin irritation with deep cleansing and hydrating masques, and an Age Smart Dermalogica facial, a firming treatment that includes a mini massage and vitamin-enriched mask.
