It’s no surprise that the staff roster at Grand Salon & Spa tallies in at 19, as the salon offers a slew of beautifying services that tend to the skin, body, hair, and nails. Owner Cherie' Merrell oversees her staff members as they perform anti-aging facials, french manicures and nail art, and hair removal with wax or a sugar-based blend. Meanwhile, hairstylists wield L'anza, Redken, Catwalk by Tigi, and Moroccanoil products to style hair after it’s cut, colored, or permed into spirals. The staff also includes two licensed massage therapists, who deploy any combination of eight massage styles to leave clients feeling as relaxed as a cow dining at a vegan restaurant.

Depending on the location, customers can stop by the gift store to pick up items such as scented candles, greeting cards, and Western–style apparel. An appointment-only gun department also outfits gun racks with high-quality shooters from makers such as Glock, Colt, and Smith & Wesson. Additionally, the Mansfield location houses a Suzy Q’s Soda Fountain & Grill, hearkening back to the days when customers could enjoy delicious soda and banana splits at their local drugstore and quarters still had Chester A. Arthur’s face on them.

Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Under the shadow of Texas Christian University, the nail techs at Blue House Salon adorn talons with designs featuring the school's colors and letters.

Mocha walls drench Amour Nails & Day Spa in a warm and welcoming tone that, perhaps not by coincidence, correlates with a few of the spa’s mani-pedis. For example, both men and women can sink into a cushy pedicure throne and enjoy the Ooh-la-Latte treatment, which hydrates skin with a chocolate-latte bath and a sugar scrub. Nail technicians also indulge hands and feet with a range of other tasty-sounding products, such as milk and honey to moisturize skin and green tea to protect it from free radicals.
