Stylist Kara Hardin joins a team of experienced cosmetologists and aestheticians at Shear Illusions Salon. A full-service beauty salon, Shear Illusions provides hairstyling alongside a wide range of color, nail, and skin services.
Lisa Spears–formerly part of Waters of Hadassah– transforms beauty with hairstyling services that include cuts, perms, conditioning treatments, and color services. At Vero Bella Salon, she works alongside a team of beauty professionals who help in the transformation by preforming mani-pedis and other nail services.
When Tiffany Alys Richardson envisioned her career in cosmetology, she needed an alter ego to help her embody the creative soul that drives her work—Alys Noir. Within Waters of Hadassah Salon and Day Spa and throughout the Pensacola area, Alys Noir emerges to treat nails to buffing, moisturizing soaks, exfoliating scrubs, and colorful polishes, as well as to dote on hands and feet with relaxing massages. Noir draws from an arsenal of makeup to beautify faces for special occasions and ensure actors' features are visible under harsh stage lights or in the shadow of Banquo's ghost. Alys Noir also waxes and tweezes unwelcome facial hair and lends her artistic talents to custom artwork such as paintings, murals, and tattoo designs.
When clients emerge from A Nu Look Studio Nail and Spa, their fingernails are often adorned with intricate flowers, eye-catching patterns, and festive holiday artwork. Owner Rosemary and her team of nail technicians like to get creative with their manicures, decorating nails with playful designs using durable Shellac and OPI Gelcolor polish. They also extend their expertise to more conservative styles, polishing nails with clean, white french tips or tiny portraits of vice presidents. Clients recline on cushy black massage chairs as specialists treat feet to soothing soaks and spa pedicures.
Led by hairstylist and fashion designer Takayah Norris, the staff at Royalty Hair Palace Salon & Boutique aims to live up to their name, treating all of their clients like queens. They achieve this by approaching beauty from multiple angles: they sculpt stunning hairstyles, professionally apply make-up, summon fresh layers of skin with facials, and stock the racks of their boutique with custom-made clothes and accessories. Therapists also perform deep-tissue, Swedish, sports, shiatsu, and reflexology massages to soothe away any lingering stress spawned from choosing a hair color that best compliments your favorite pair of Groucho glasses.
