Ty Barnes opened Blow Salon with two goals in mind: to showcase his hairstyling mastery, and to promote his own Blow product line. Between products from Blow and Davines, a line imported from Italy, Ty and his fellow stylists have everything from alcohol-free mousse to frizz-combating herbal polishes at their disposal. With these, the Blow team completes services such as basic cuts and foil highlights, as well as fancy updos for brides or women attending their office?s wear-your-wedding-dress-to-work day. The crew?s talents also extend beyond hair to facial treatments, such as waxing or eyebrow arching. Amid the exposed bricks and shiny hardwoods, clients awaiting their appointment can kick back with a beer or Starbucks coffee while enjoying the free Wi-Fi.
Colombia native Patricia Estes demonstrates her artistic talent in each mani-pedi she performs for men, women, and children alike. The longtime painter and licensed nail technician offers a full line of nail services—manicures, pedicures, and acrylic or gel nails—but her specialty is imaginative nail art. She painstakingly enhances fingernails and toenails with vibrant, highly detailed designs or miniature re-creations of Monet's Water Lilies. She works out of the 100-year-old National Avenue Cutting Company building with a group of stylists who also offer haircuts and other salon services.
TLC Hair Designs owner-operator Tracy Chapman transforms damaged, overgrown, or outdated hairdos at her work station in Salon Brands. Using her steady hands and knack for matching styles based on her clients' skin tones and facial features, Tracy cuts, layers, and shapes both men's and women's hair. Matrix and Logics Color DNA aid her as she adds accentuating highlights or all-over color to strands that need a new hue or a touchup of their natural green hue.
Hair salons can often feel like revolving-door operations, shuffling customers in and out as quickly as possible. That's not the case at Shear Heaven. Men and women who stop into the salon for services, whether they are haircuts, color treatments, or perms, are pampered with hot-towel facial wraps and soothing upper-back massages. To further indulge clients, the salon offers waxing and makeup-application services.

In addition, the salon offers waxing services.
