Working out of Alexander's Barbershop, master barber Tina Olive knows how to handle the rougher edges of men?s beards and sideburns. There are no unnecessary frills to her classic haircuts?just the snips and clips it takes to craft sharp, contemporary looks. She does, however, offer a VIP haircut that includes a straight-razor shave. To prep whiskers for this traditional treatment, Tina first applies a hot towel and then hot lather to make for a smooth shave.

The stylists at Salon Bella keep their clients up to date on style trends with luxurious beauty services that include both haircare and nailcare. And the elegance doesn’t stop with their service menu. The salon is decorated with textured walls, rich fabrics, exposed brick, and sleek red and black furniture, with styling chairs situated in front of vintage-like dressers adorned with ornately framed mirrors that make everyone look like a young royalty.
Though Honors Salon has been in the same location for nearly three decades, its stylists’ approach to hair care has changed with the times. Up to date on the latest styles, techniques, and ways to turn hair clippings into a renewable form of energy, they create unique looks that are also easy to replicate at home. In doing so, they're backed by high-end products, including those from Redken, Moroccanoil, and Keratin Complex. In addition to standard haircare services, they add extensions, wax away unwanted hair on four body areas, and administer threading on brows.
Hair Expressions is out to change the way people think about their hair. Clients who've previously felt limited by frizzy texture, breakage, and other hair issues can discover new possibilities for their locks during appointments that incorporate expert cutting techniques, Pravana Naturaceuticals?coloring products,?and individual pep talks for particularly limp?strands.?Sage-green walls line the cozy salon, and natural light flows in through drapery-flanked windows.
The team at Pure Bliss Salon Spa specializes in making their clients look and feel really, really good. Hair stylists cut and color locks, but also fortify them with deep-conditioning treatments and hair masques.

And some services are just for fun?nail artists paint tiny designs to celebrate the holidays or the growth of a new finger.
