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.

The expert tress tamers on the New Talent Team at Richard Joseph SalonSpa—Birmingham magazine's 2011 Best of Birmingham winner—snip, style, and color locks with Aveda products. After stylists consult with clients on whether to go for a classic cut or an avant-garde clip, a clarifying and stress-relieving shampoo massages scalps while gently cleansing manes. Next, a stylist reduces hair density and molds follicles into face-framing devices. With the full-color or highlights option, Aveda Hair Color’s 97% naturally derived formula revamps head gardens with vibrant color that either covers every strand or rewards specific locks for not harboring fugitive snakes. A complimentary 20-minute hand or foot massage relaxes appendages and adds a luxurious touch to the salon experience.
Pay a visit to a full-service salon such as Profiles Hair and Nail Studio, and vent your stress directly through the ducts on your fingers and toes. At Profiles, visitors can have a wide range of digits pampered, limited only by the number of phalanges they possess. With a complete manicure and pedicure ($60), the gracefulness of every hand or foot motion will be enhanced, from scratching chalkboards to poking holes in paper walls and using toenails to pry the tops off cans of sauerkraut. Using OPI and Essie polishes, one of Profile’s trio of experienced and friendly nail stylists will attend to your 10 palm fronds for half an hour, then commence a 60-minute pedicure that includes an organic-coconut-oil-fueled knee-high leg massage, leaving you cleaner than a freshly scrubbed bar of soap and trimmed more neatly than a doorframe.
