Salon Concepts connects talented stylists with private suites where they can tend to tresses and soothe skin in a peaceful environment. Services and pricing vary by location, with an array of beautifying treatments abounding across the network like bunnies on a verdant spring catwalk. Seventeen participating aestheticians are armed with a pack of prettification options such as cut-and-color combos from experienced colorist Brent Bauer at Salon Concepts Oakley ($60–$175) or body waxing ($10+) under the gentle hands of Randy Jackson at Salon Concepts Florence. Check in for a noninvasive frown-removal procedure with a facial expert ($35+) or a stress-melting massage ($35+) from Erlinda Griffin at Salon Concepts Montgomery.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
Within a stone's throw of Bliss Salon, a large water tower sits like a sleeping giant on the horizon and reads in a welcoming scrawl, "Florence, Y'all." This is an appropriate preface for Bliss's homey hardwood floors, leather chairs, and grape-hued walls. Though friendly stylists keep things professional with Redken products and ongoing training, Bliss Salon is a casual place where folks can relax and be pampered for a few hours while completing jigsaw puzzles on their laps. Personal consultations are always complimentary, so finding out about waxing, updo services, or hair-color upgrades is a no-pressure affair.
At Luminous Skin, Gina Gruber draws upon nearly two decades of experience in the skin care business, plus an arsenal of high-quality products to bring out her client's natural radiance. During facials, she employs Glo Therapeutics to soften and cleanse the skin, and when applying makeup for special occasions, she uses Glo Minerals cosmetics to highlight cheekbones without clogging pores. During spray tans, Gina also swaps harmful UV rays for a Liquid Sun organic solution, helping clients stay healthy while they ready themselves for an upcoming vacation or a stint as an Academy Award.
All sorts of clients entrust their eyes to the team at Eye Care Specialists, P.C. Perhaps it?s because each member of the staff has been supplied with glasses or sunglasses from the optical boutique, allowing them to personally recommend frames and lenses for each customer. Customers also come there for the wide selection of frames from brands such as Gucci, Pro Design, Ray Ban, and more. For those who like to spend their time in the sun, progressive lenses and prescription sunglasses are also available.
Licensed massage therapist Susan Rose Kesti believes in the healing power of touch. At her studio, which is located inside NeverEndz Salon, she exercises that power during a handful of massage services that incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage techniques. The benefits of the firm and gentle strokes can include everything from reduced stress to increased circulation, which is particularly good if you own an underperforming news magazine.
