Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers near and far. Wild wigs are brought to bear by highly trained hair tamers who also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering customers' questions about hair trends, maintenance, and the lawfulness of pigtails after Labor Day. Stylists woo strands with high-quality hair products from brands such as Redken, Joico, and American Crew, creating fresh face-frames on adults (a $12 value each), kids (a $10 value each), and seniors (a $10 value each) alike. No appointment is necessary, and customers can check wait times or check in for a cut via computer, phone, or flag semaphore.
Inside her private room at Studio Salon, stylist Joanie transforms dos with precision cuts and conditioning treatments.

The average stylist at Simplicity Salon Las Vegas has more than 10 years of experience, a fact that gives clients the confidence to trust the staff to perform cuts, perms, highlights, and keratin smoothing treatments. Sometimes clients also stick around for nail services, perhaps requesting long-lasting gel-polish manicures or toenail grooming in a pipeless pedicure chair.
Al and Catherine Ponte have a goal for Scandals Salon and Day Spa that defies its name: creating a drama-free atmosphere where patrons feel welcome. Just about the only thing scandalous is how unfair it is that the salon gets such a heavily saturated team of hair designers, barbers, aestheticians, and massage therapists. (Scandals gets to keep nearly 50 stylists alone). But it's not all a numbers game. The highly-trained folks arm themselves with products from TIGI, Redken, Matrix, Paul Mitchell, and other impressive lines, transforming manes, adding vibrant hues to nails, and easing tension from tense muscles.
American Male Salon indulges masculine manes, mugs, and mitts with a repertoire of dude-centric salon services doled out in a plush environment filled with flat-screen TVs and complimentary beverages.

American Male’s stylists conquer face pelts with similar ease, dressing whiskers in a layer of fluffy lather before equipping a razor to skillfully deforest facial ecosystems. Technicians similarly rid the ears, nose, or brows of unwanted hairs with waxing strips, uncovering coded-message tattoos that reveal the family barbecue-sauce recipe.
